This is a story of survival. It is a mature story told in a make believe way. It is told with an edge of realism that contradicts the candy coating of the animation and character species. I just bought a copy of this so my wife and I could watch it. Melanie (My wife) having not seen it before and not knowing what to expect was left speechless when Violet was gone. If I were to rate the film I would give it at least a PG maybe even a PG 13 for its possible NIGHTMARES for younger children. I give the story 4 stars for being entertaining and well told
This movie is unfortunately seen as a kiddie movie just because of the fact that it is animated. I see it time and again in the kid's section of the video store, and that is not where it belongs. It is a serious drama, one with violence and adult themes and situations very young children would not understand. It is an adult movie, or at least if viewed by a child should be done so under adult guidance. Parents wanting yet another 90 minute babysitter would do better purchasing the latest Disney tripe. But if you want a movie you can enjoy with your child, one that will leave them pondering tough issues regarding society, politics, life and death, a movie that will not dumb them down but make them think, and even want to read the novel, then this is the one.
This is a tale of Rabbits seeking a safe new home, we follow their journey in heart wrenching detail, filled with danger and great sadness, there are some lighter moments that gives the viewer some emotional relief, but ultimately you are left feeling for these wonderful characters.
I recommend this movie, warning those who are first time viewers, if you are expecting a cutesy kiddy type movie then forget it, Watership Down can be viewed by kids with parental guidance so they (the parents! as much as the kids) can be comforted when the story gets too much, keep a box of tissues handy, cause that song BRIGHT EYES gets me every time I hear it, so be warned. I will always love this movie and hope you will too.

This story, while not being ancient, is still old. I read the book one summer as I was hanging out at our county's excuse for a library. Read morePublished 17 days ago by Michael Cast
Some scenes and animation are just dated. But probably very impressive for the time it was made. I read most of the book, so I was interested in seeing the movie and how the story... Read morePublished 19 days ago by Celia A Smith

Good movie. May be a little too intense for very young viewers. 10 years old and up would be better able to process what the movie is about.Published 1 month ago by Alex - Rancho Cucamonga, CA

This was one of my favorite films growing up. We had it in Beta format, and it was in regular rotation when I was little. I finally rented this and let my eight-year-old watch it. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Texasexpat
