Head and shoulders above other animated children's films
18 November 2012 | by edwardwbSee all my reviews

A superbly made film in every way! I was stunned by the utter beauty and charm of this and the previous animated 'Tinkerbell' films a few years ago, with their introduction to the world of fairies.

Colours are dazzling and sumptuous, imagery is almost 3D in appearance (yet sharper), the stories are well thought out, and in this third instalment - 'Tinkerbell and the Great Fairy Rescue', Disney does not disappoint!

I can't enthuse enough about the 'Tinkerbell' films, as they do not have the frenetic, brash, sometimes over-the-top action sequences that many other animated films such as 'Tangled', and even the later 'Ice Age' films have. There are very exciting sequences however, but they are well balanced with other aspects of the film.

They also don't have any smart-mouthed characters that are to be found in some animated films these days, and whom in my opinion are not good role-models for young children.

I see a great many films of all genres, and I do not even have any children, but after I saw the first Tinkerbell film, I had found it so sweet and entertaining - and such a breath of fresh air in our often ugly world - that I bought the following films, and waited with anticipation to see them. Tinkerbell is so cute, (yet feisty) with a perfectly suited voice - that it makes you wish that fairies were real.

Indeed, one becomes utterly submersed in Tinkerbell's fairyland adventures for the entire duration of the film - so well executed is it. I would go as far as to say that 'Tinkerbell and the Great Fairy Rescue' is the best animated film I have ever seen. Shrek, Finding Nemo, Madagascar,(to name but a few) pale by comparison. It is THAT good!

If you have young children, and would like them to see completely innocent, thoroughly entertaining films with good values, you cannot do better than let them view the recent 'Tinkerbell' films. I'm very sure that you will enjoy them immensely too!
