Far from perfect, but a well meaning and amiable family drama
8 December 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I admit it, I liked this movie. Sure it does have its problems, but it is very well meaning and is in general amiable family drama. While it is uplifting on the whole, there are also some dark issues like the death of the mare and the cruelty inflicted onto the unicorn.

The story is a little formulaic and clichéd(ie, the idea of Polly being sent to boarding school isn't exactly new territory)with some very long scenes involving the attempts to abduct the unicorn, and the script does have its ups and downs. And sometimes I worry that The Little Unicorn may be too old fashioned from an adult perspective.

However, there are some pluses. The costumes and the scenery are nice to look at, and the little unicorn of the title is simply adorable. And the acting was good; Britney Bonman is very spirited as Polly and David Warner proves what a great actor he is as her grandfather. Joe Penny makes for a quite ambitious but handsome villain, while Emma Samms looks gorgeous. Shame though that George Hamilton is given little to do as the failed magician. The music score was very nicely done though. I don't think the special effects were that bad, and the ending was sweet.

All in all, it is not perfect by all means, but it is worth watching. 7/10 Bethany Cox
