Reviews
Mine: A first rate adaptation of one of the best novels ever written. Cuts much of the book, but that was to be expected. Still a great story told well. May be a bit dark for small kids.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Stylish animated-cartoon from Richard Adams' best-selling book about a family of rabbits seeking a safe place to live, encountering many perils along the way; not a kiddie film by any means. Bird character voiced by Zero Mostel provides only comic relief in this sometimes grim cartoon. Excellent score by Angela Morley and Malcolm Williamson. One of the best non-Disney animated features ever made.

(out of 5 stars)
As a fan of the Watership Down novel, I was very disappointed in the quality of the animated feature version of the film. There is so much potential for this to be an excellent movie. However, the film was dreary, poorly producted, depressing, and lacking in spirit. I would not recommend this film to anyone.
