Cinematic Misery
2 February 1999 | by (Palo Alto, California) – See all my reviews



I knew this movie was going to be bad since before production started. Release day finally came. After a month or so of procrastination, I rented it. And I survived. This so-called sequel to The Secret Of NIMH is nowhere near the creepy-yet-cute level of the original. Instead, it looks more like a bad Rescue Rangers episode. The songs not only shouldn't be there, but they're awful. There's nothing new in the plot-it's pure formula-absolutely pure! It's childish, badly written, and the producers tried to compensate for the faults by encasing the thing with gloss. Didn't work.
