Review - Ferngully: The Last Rainforest

If you have to have a ham-handed message in a kids’ movie, it might as well be pro-environment. A fairy, a miniaturized human and a cast of supporting creatures gang up to thwart a pollution monster’s scheme to destroy their home using a massive logging machine. Though the animation is bad by current standards, it was reasonably good stuff at the time. The musical numbers are purely dreadful. Tim Curry does a good job voicing the villain, but his positive contribution is quickly offset by Robin Williams as a predictably spastic bat. Overall this comes across as an off-brand attempt to pull off the Disney formula. Mildly amusing
