The Great Mouse Detective

The Great Mouse Detective (1986)

Genre: Animation, Adventure, Family Film, Disney

A Disney classic retelling the tale of Sherlock Holmes using animals (mostly mice ๐Ÿ˜› ). This is actually okay ๐Ÿ™‚ . The story is entertaining and fairly captivating plus it is actually based of the Basil of Baker Street books not Sherlock (which you naturally assume ๐Ÿ˜› ). This I liked as the story was different and it was not a cheap copy of the Sherlock tale. I loved that you can see shadows of humans and the hints of the original Sherlock story running alongside it ๐Ÿ™‚ . The art of this movie feels very nostalgic to the old style of Disney classics and the villain (Professor Ratigan) is decent. He is voiced by the great Vincent Price and his character Professor Ratigan maybe one of the darkest villains from Disney ๐Ÿ˜€ . The songs in this movie arenโ€™t the greatest and they arenโ€™t memorable. My favourite scenes in this movie were the โ€œBig Ben Chaseโ€ and the solution to the โ€œMouse Trap Sceneโ€. I liked them as they were intriguingly, climatic and intense (especially the Big Ben scene ๐Ÿ™‚ ). I also liked the characters of Basil, Dawson and Olivia who were good main characters and the relationship between each other was great. I also liked how Basil worked and was probably the best character there ๐Ÿ˜› . A very good animation that probably need (and deserves) more recognition ๐Ÿ™‚ . Enjoy ๐Ÿ˜€

I give this film 3.5 Stars out of 5!

Can he bring the dirty rat to justice?
