THE LAST UNICORN (1982 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.0|5.0 Starsììì

The Last Unicorn tries with all the best mythological elements to tell its story well—magic horns, witches, wizards, kings, princes, and unicorns. The animation is good, the story fair; but overall, one can do without watching this film with one exception—the music. The music fits each scene perfectly and actually is better than the scenes for which it is written.

Storyline

A female unicorn (voice of Mia Farrow) overhears hunters talking about the last unicorn. When she finds she may not be the last unicorn, she goes in search of others of her kind.

No. This is one of those library shelf movies, rarely checked out for viewing.
