Storyline

Russia is being terrorized by an evil witch known as Baba Yaga; the only one who is not afraid of her is Bartok the Magnificent. Bartok, an albino bat, has just arrived in Moscow and is impressing everyone with his performances, including Prince Ivan Romanov. However, one person is not impressed; Ludmilla finds Bartok annoying and naive. After Bartok's show, a violent bear suddenly attacks. Bartok must save everyone by stunning the bear with dust and then knocks him over and traps him in a wagon. Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Trivia

The witch Baba Yaga is an actual witch in eastern European/Russian folklore. She is said to have iron teeth, and uses a mortar and pestle as her mode of transportation. According to legend, she would steal children and kill them, and use her victims' bones to build her house and fence, the latter onto which she would mount children's skulls and use them like lanterns. Her house stood on chicken legs, and would only kneel on her command. She also had a cat that she often mistreated, that had been known to help some people escape her clutches, or outwit her.

Ugh.
18 February 2002 | by (Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

I liked Anastasia. It wasn't the best animated movie ever, but it was nice. And Bartok was my favourite character, so.... .... I was all the more disappointed with this movie. The idea of giving him his own story to star in is great. But please, please, give the movie a story! This one mixes an old Russian fairy tale about a witch (in the original she lives in a house with 4 chicken legs, so the house can walk around, I believe) with a PC-game-alike plot:

1) Go on quest. Get item 2) return from quest. bring item to whoever requested it. 3) get sent on another quest to get another item.... 4) repeat until you feel sick

First quest: find the kidnapped prince. Then the witch sends him on 3 or 4 quests of her own before being willing to help him. Etc. etc.

Add in some poor songs, some really really obvious morals, and you've got one of the worst direct-to-video sequels ever devised for a major animated feature. Only Lion King 2 comes off worse, from those that I've seen so far...
