    This film is so amazing. A Childhood favorite and i'm still in love with it as an adult. One of my all time favorite animated films. My son watched it for his first time yesterday and i'm pretty sure it became an instant favorite of his too. I truly think this is one of the greatest animated films ever made. The story is fascinating, fantastic and fun. It's an odyssey into an enchanted creature world where intelligent mice and rats…

    One of my earliest memories of watching a film in the theatre, The Secret Of NIMH holds up surprisingly well over thirty years later, and looks fantastic in high definition. There are moments when the film trips over itself trying to cater to the House Of Mouse crowd (Jeremy the crow I'm looking at you), but this tale of rats (which are way cooler than mice btw) attempting a simple feat of relocating when their habitat on a farm becomes…

    First, there isn't much better than 80s Don Bluth films. The guy had a hell of a hot streak there for a while. Second, this is the best animated film of all time not featuring a talking Unicorn. I love this movie so much. Easily in my top 10 all time, even after all these years. Bluth does an amazing job of taking the source book and creating a wonderful world out of it. And honestly, this is still some…

    The Secret of NIMH is probably one of the darkest animated movies out there. It tells the story of a widowed mouse who goes on a journey to protect her children. This makes the film stand out above the simpler Disney movies and gives the film much more emotional as viewers know how dire the main character's situation is. The background designs of The Secret of NIMH are incredible and the whole film demonstrated the tremendous talent and creativity of…

    There is something about Mrs. Frisby. Frustrated with the Walt Disney studio's reluctance to produce full-length animated films, Don Bluth and a number of animators left the studio in the early '80s with the intent of creating movies in the style of Disney's classics. The Secret of NIMH is the first film Bluth produced after leaving the studio. Adapted from Robert C. O'Brien's acclaimed children's book Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of N.I.M.H., the film is about a widowed mouse…

    It has a classic pacing. It's not ADD like most of the modern films, which is refreshing.

    The film invokes real fear and courage in the face of it. Love it.

    Great story of courage and selflessness.

    Don Bluth never fails to amaze me and The Secret of NIMH is no exception. Mrs Brisby is probably the most loveliest character put to animation. A highly enjoyable film for the whole family.

    Its sad that all the main cast has passed away, the film is not really that old if you think that 30 years is not old for a film anyway.

    Some real problems of pacing, character, and story logic, but also plenty of great atmosphere, and some truly impressive effects work.

    Enchanted me as a child. A dark fairy tale that explains why rats are assholes.
