Critic Reviews for An American Tail
Cartoons with ambitions even this noble are as rare as Steven Spielberg films that lose money, but every character and every situation presented herein have been seen a thousand times before.
The overall quality of the animation -- baroquely executed if rather conventionally conceived -- makes it worth a look
For all its state-of-the-art animation techniques, Spielberg's production remains resolutely conservative: visually it's virtually indistinguishable from Walt at his wimpiest.
The movie has such vague ethnic grounds, however, that only a few children will understand or care that the Mousekewitzes are Jewish. And few of those are likely to be entertained by such a tragic, gloomy story.
Audience Reviews for An American Tail
A tale of immigration told through a cartoon world. This plays on a few Classic tales and re-watching the film at the age I am now you can really pick up on metaphors in relation to the human world. Despite all of the modern effects such as CGI, this film still works as a timeless piece of animation.
I think I missed out on the appeal of this film because I never saw it when I was younger. I could never get over the Russian accents.
good songs, but its just so dang depressing
