Sorry I found it too simplistic to enjoy it
8 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

So are there any redeeming qualities? The voice acting is pretty good with what they have, the villainess Madame Mousey was an enjoyable character(Cat R.Waul is my favourite American Tail villain though) and the film moves quickly. However, An American Tail:The Mystery of the Night Monster is not good at all for a sequel I feel, and I also feel it is the worst of the American Tail franchise,the best of course being the original. There are several reasons why I found this so.

One was the very simplistic story, that not only took a while to get going but was very predictable as well. Secondly, the songs are completely disposable, none of them memorable in any way. Thirdly, the script is incredibly juvenile and make you grit your teeth in its sheer banality. Fourthly, the animation is not good, at all, instead it is very flat with choppy editing. Fifthly, the characters don't have their likability any more, Fieval is now more annoying in alternative to sweet, and Tiger is no longer funny despite the fact that the late Dom DeLuise voices him. Sixthly, the ending is a real let-down, very rushed I felt.

Overall, not absolutely awful, but forgettable and charmless. 3/10 for the voice acting and villainess. Bethany Cox
