2 out of 10 Not as good as it should be
marie from Westmeath, 25 Nov 2009
Selected this for my four year old. Four year old, ten year old, thirteen and fourteen year olds shuffled on their seats. I was entranced. Beautiful to look at but does not capture children. Depends to much on the premis that children are aware of fairy tales. Unfortunately this no longer holds true. A great children's movie today has to be visually appealing and funny. You have to up your game.

2.5 out of 10 Beauuuutiful... But kinda Dull
Fergal from Dublin, 03 Sep 2009
Looks great and long for a n animated feature but like a lotta of recent animated movies less attention paid to the script... no funny moments. Much more of a fable. Sigourney Weavers narration is great... one of those lovely voices that'd send ya to sleep.

3.5 out of 10 Good.
John from Donegal, 20 Oct 2009
The worlds of Mice, Rats & humans collide in this fantasy story. Good film with excellent graphics. I thought it dragged in places, and there weren't any laugh out loud moments. Perhaps one for the kids alone.

We loved watching this film and enjoyed the uniqueness of the storyline, thankfully people can still invent new stories. Lovely tale with fantastic graphics, very well animated.

2 out of 10 Okay
Mark from Dublin, 12 Feb 2010
In fairness it is a bit of a let down through Adult eyes not as good as other cartoons but funnily enough the audience enjoyed it.
