Synopsis


The Secret of NIMH II: Timmy to the Rescue
In this direct-to-video sequel to Don Bluth's 1982 animated adventure The Secret of NIMH, Timmy (voice of Ralph Macchio) is the son of two courageous mice who helped save the day for the animals of Thorn Valley. While the wise Nicodemus has predicted that Timmy will some day be a great hero -- and his father expects nothing less -- the mouse is at once anxious to prove his courage and worried if he can live up to the expectations of others. Timmy's opportunity finally comes when his friend Jenny (Hynden Walch) asks him to help her find her parents, who may have been kidnapped by the nefarious human scientists of the National Institute of Mental Health. The voice cast for The Secret of NIMH II: Timmy to the Rescue includes Eric Idle, Harvey Korman, Doris Roberts, and William H. Macy. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

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

    When Animated Kids Movies Were Dark

    This took me back when I finally re-watched it. Good to see that in the past there was't so much sheltering done with kid's shows. Also, Don DeLouis is a voice in the tale.

    This is one of those classic movies that we had to get but after watching it I must say it seemed more vicious than I remembered it being. I wouldn't recommend it for little kids... maybe over 10? Still a good overall plot geared more for adults and teens. Yes all this in a mouse movie.

    This has been one of my favorite animated movies for many years and I remember when it first came out it was listed as the best Disney movie that Disney never did. The animation by Don Bluth is stunning and the story is memorable and quotable. I would have preferred a widescreen version of this but that seems impossible to find. Truthfully, I have never watched NIMH II but it comes along for the same price. You can't really lose on this.
