Mice protagonists! Corrupt Buckingham Palace guards! Steampunk before it was cool! So much to adore––a great pre-introduction to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle for kids, as well. On a technical level, loved the primitive CGI microscope shots.
Everyone talks of Vincent Price as Rattigan (which is great don't get me wrong), but personally I found that the best part in the movie is Basil (Voiced by Barry Ingham), hes's just delightful to watch in his over-the-top wackyness.
a beautiful and different animated feature , so lively and enigmatic and have a beautiful sense of place , time and atmosphere...........totally recommended for those who want to try a different style cartoon.
