THE SECRET OF NIMH (Theatrical Release USA 1982)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

The Secret of Nimh—
cute animated movie—seems reminiscent of some of the Disney classic animations like The Great Mouse Detective or The Sword in the Stone. The movie displays a well-blended mix of mystery, incorporates heart engagement, and employs terrific voice casting that includes Dom Deluise and John Carradine. The film serves the younger audience well.
