Don Bluth United States, 1986

Tom Barnard's rating of the film An American Tail

A messy, dull, and uninspired animated "classic". I'd heard great things about this, and with Bluth and Spielberg's names attached, expected them. This is a stretch at 80 minutes, with boring characters, forgettable songs and no hint of any real plot. Nothing is fully realised, except for a few well-animated moments.
