The Reviews for Watership Down (1978) 1080p


A wonderful film for all agesReviewed byJevilian SnortVote: 9/10

I saw this film initially when I was about six or seven years old and have seen it several times since. Of all the films I saw during my early childhood, none captivated me as much as Watership Down. I am now twenty eight years old and, despite the violence and sadness of the film, I have somehow turned out to be a fairly normal bloke rather than a murderer or manic depressive. Funny that.

It is a complete fallacy to suggest that we must shield our children from anything that hints of the injustices that may exist in the real world. In fact, seeing a film such as this may help them in dealing with issues in their own lives or perhaps teach them lessons in understanding and appreciation of the world around them. Watership Down had that effect on me.

You probably shouldn't show this to young childrenReviewed byfailio-504-682440Vote: 8/10

There's no doubt about it; this is a great British animation, although it wasn't quite as emotional or depressing as I was expecting. The voice acting, with such voices as John Hurt and Richard Briers, is generally above-par, although in some parts it's a bit samey, and Kehaar's voice has the potential to be very annoying at times (it's also a little weird - in his iconic line "P*SS OFF!" he sounds like the voice of a woman on Monty Python, however in basically all his other dialogue he sounds like someone doing a bad impersonation of Roberto Benigni), however both of these are fairly easy to overlook. The animation is really good for a lesser budgeted film of the time, particularly in the opening sequence of the story of El-ahrairah, but some of the animations are quite choppy in certain places. An annoying side effect of the very high quality of the Digibeta print from which the movie was presented was that some of the imperfections of the animation were made quite obvious (for instance there is quite a lot of static dirt in some scenes, presumably sandwiched inbetween the cels of the characters and background). For such a modest film, it has quite a grand and bombastic orchestral score, which is very well composed and played, making those final scenes even more effective, and it also has an oddly haunting song in Art Garfunkel's ballad "Bright Eyes" playing over what is arguably the most emotional scene in the movie, and making it only more so. For the most part, this is a generally light- hearted little movie, however the last 15 or so minutes are genuinely rather dramatic, quite shocking (seriously, how the f**k did this get a U?), and undeniably tense. It's quite a jarring change of pace, but it's arguably what makes the movie what it is, as well as being a more than satisfying rounding off to the movie. Watership Down for me didn't quite match all of what I had heard it described as; this doesn't matter, though, because it is still a very good animated movie, and was a great, albeit not entirely enjoyable per sé, way to spend a Sunday afternoon at the movies.

'Watership Down' is a terrific adaptation of Richard Adams's novel.Like Orwell's 'Animal Farm', this isn't only a film for children butequally important for adults. The soundtrack is captivating and I lovedthe way Art Garfunkel's song was used. The characters are so richlywritten that the viewer immediately empathizes and identifies withthem. They are brave, endearing, loyal and strong and this is allcleverly downplayed. Fiver and Hazel are the two heroes who arebrilliantly voiced by Richard Briers and John Hurt. The overall voiceacting is very well done.

Unlike most animated films, 'Watership Down' uses a lot of subtlety.Nothing is overdone. The music flows well, the pacing is smooth and thecharacters are real (rather than over the top). The animation issimplistic, created with watercolour and ink, giving it a gentle touch.It works effectively.

There story is cleverly layered and there's a lot of intriguingsymbolism. The film never shies away from being brutally honest. Itshows life the way it is: There's pain, there's death, there'ssuffering, there's determination and one needs to work hard to have thebest of it, to survive. While many have complained that this is nomovie for children, I think it depends more on the individual becausethis film is relevant for everyone. The violent scenes are a bitgraphic and the sad scenes are moving but in the end it is uplifting.

There are very few novels that have been so fascinating on screen.'Watership Down' is among them. It is a magnificently grippingadventurous tale. After 30 years it still remains a powerful story thatstrongly applies to today's world. I remember seeing it ages ago andthen it was a must-have-on-DVD movie for me. I finally got the DVD andhad the pleasure to watch revisit it today. A dazzling gem.
