Very good
19 November 1998 | by (Michigan, USA) – See all my reviews

Excellent film about a cute little unicorn named Unico who has special powers. The second in the Unico seris. Can be a little confusing if you havn't seen the first one. It is a heart-warming tale about the cruelty of humuns and the joy of friendship. Personally I think everyone should see it, even though it may be hard to find since it has been discontinued.
