As Don Bluth's first animated movie after leaving Disney, obviously no one would really expect much. But that's irrelevant; this is possibly one of the most graphic G-rated movies of all time, but its because of its fearlessly added content and unique story that makes this a truly eye opening movie. The story itself is one that really makes you wonder about things related thereto, and the animation itself is possibly the best i've seen in any kind of non-Disney production. The voice acting is something to be admired, as it illustrates the characters beautifully, and creates a cast you just can't ignore in any aspect. The score is both mystifying and beautiful; setting the mood of the story perfectly. Be aware though, this movie does contain some pretty frightening scenes involving sword fights and science experimentation of lab rats that children might find scary. As for language, i wouldn't consider it too extreme, unless you consider one curse word an obstruction to a minor.

The book was better than the movie. If anyone has a second or third grader who likes adventure, this would be a good book for them.
