    Synopsis


    The Secret of NIMH
    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 whose home is threatened; also, one of her children is gravely ill. On her way to find help, she discovers NIMH, a secret society of highly-intelligent rats who have escaped from a nearby science lab. The rats help the widow to protect her family and home. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

      Don Bluth (All dogs go to Heaven, An American Tail) used to work at disney in their animated department and left to go out on his own and this was his first effort. a story of a single mother mouse and her family, who's youngest song is dying, to get medicine for him and to move their home before the plow at the nearby farm, destroys it. on her journey she meets a clumsy bird, a scary wise owl and discovers the secret lair of the rats of nihm. wonderfully animated and such a great story and very ambitious for a non disney movie at the time. highly recommended.

      I saw this movie on theaters and have loved it ever since. Might be a little scary at times for younger kids but great for a little older kids. The blu-ray transfer is no better than the DVD which isn't too good to begin with. But I figure the scratch resistance means it won't have to be replaced any time soon. Maybe some day this movie will get the blu-ray special edition that it deserves but until then, this will have to do. At least the price is not much more than the DVD anyway.

      This is a great film. My only dismay is that the "Blu Ray" is no real better than the DVD. I assume that the original print of the film has been lost as the Blu Ray is grainy and I expected it to be sharp and clear like when the film was first released. Sad to say it is not ... but .. if you haven't seen it, make sure that you do.

      THE SECRET OF NIMH IS GREAT!!!

      THE SECRET OF NIMH is produced by none other than DON BLUTH. It was created with a Disney-style type of animation. This movie is wonderfully animated and it has a heartwarming story of just how far a mother would go to save her son. This is a masterpiece and is worth every cent spent. Check out other films produced by DON BLUTH, if you love Disney, you'll love DON BLUTH!

      Secret of Nimh was located at the front of the store in a barrel of other DVDs. As I searched through the barrel, I came upon Secret of Nimh. This movie brings back a lot of memories. This movie was loved by my Mother. Therefore when I saw I HAD to ale the purchase. This was a great purchase for me. Thank you Best Buy.

      I remember watching this movie as a kid and I liked it very much then so when I saw it on sale for 5 dollars on bluray, I wasn't gonna pass it up since I got my nieces and nephews coming over every now and then and they could use something to watch... A good story and something to keep them occupied :)

      This was an HBO staple when I was a kid. Pretty intense stuff but I survived. Millenials might not be able to handle it.

      I'm watching this now with my daughter many years after I watched it as a child. In my opinion, a great adaptation of the book.
