This sort-of sequel to the 1977 hit The Rescuers boasts reasonably solid production values and fine character voices. Too bad they're set against such a mediocre story that adults may duck.
Variety Staff, Variety  full review
 
The film's direction, by Hendel Butoy and Mike Gabriel, is spectacularly inventive even when not fully appropriate to either the film's subject or the very young viewers it can be expected to attract.
Janet Maslin, New York Times  full review
 
A gorgeously drawn myth made for plucky children and very brave mice.
Rita Kempley, Washington Post  full review
 
The flight sequence and many of the other action scenes in this new Disney animated feature create an exhilaration and freedom that are liberating. And the rest of the story is fun, too.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times  full review
 
Carries its ambitions with an easy grace, expanding the art of animation to fresh ground without losing sight of the silly fun we love cartoons for.
