This movie is a particular favorite of mine, and when I heard it was coming out on Blu-ray I really wanted to get it, but I didn't want to spend $20+ for it. But when it started going in and out of stock I caved. It was at least worth it, it looks really good on Blu-ray for the most part, everything looks great except for the parts where Rocky and Bullwinkle are in the real world, that animation just hasn't aged very well. It doesn't look terrible or anything, but something to mention. This is a very bare bones disc, it doesn't even have a main menu, it just starts playing the movie right away, and when you play the bonus documentary you either have to watch all of it or fast forward to the end to get back to the movie.
Overall while I could have hoped there would be a little more to this release, especially for the price, I do still appreciate that the movie looks really good and I guess that's all really could have asked for. If you can find it for a reasonable price, I completely recommend getting this while you still can, especially if you really love this movie.
I enjoyed the television cartoon series, so I was excited about seeing The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle on the big screen, and this movie lived up to its predecessor. Yes, the plot was silly, and the movie was filled with bad puns, but this is ROCKY AND BULLWINKLE
I would recommend this to a friend
Rating 4 out of 5 stars with 1 review
This movie brings the classic Jay Ward cartoon to a new age of audience. This movie is great for young viewers, fans of the original series, and enybody in between.
