Great animated movie for children. A real Indiana Jones feel.
This is a wonderful little movie for children. Adults will be amused enough to watch it with their kids and I can't think of many things in the film that would offend the sensibilities of any except the most sheltering of parents. Racism against Arabs have been leveled against certain sections of the movie but they do not hold any water. Stereotypical portrayal perhaps but racism in a negative sense, no. One must keep in mind that this movie was created in 1990 and Middle Eastern culture has long been considered exotic, interesting, and mysterious. That is what this movie tries to tap into, not into racism.
Scrooge McDuck and the gang go on a short but enjoyable adventure and the voice acting of Christopher Lloyd really earn this movie the seven stars. Your kids will love it.
