Movie Reviews

The best animated version of The Nutcracker!
Doctor Trance | MA, United States | 11/10/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After wearing out my old video every Christmas in the 90's, this one took a while to show up on DVD. It was first out in Europe in 2002, so being able to play multi region DVD's, I quickly snatched it up. It was rather low budget, but finally, in 2004, a slightly better quality US version came out!

The incredible music, the vibrant colors, the excellent voice-overs, and of course, the story. A young girl is told by her Grandfather the tale about the wooden nutcracker he gave her as a gift. A boy soldier was turned into wood by the evil Mousequeen, and to become a real boy again, he must defeat the Mouseking.

With the voices of Phyllis Diller, Kiefer Sutherland, Peter O'Toole, and Megan Follows, you just can't go wrong with this cast. An excellent treat, meant to be watched every year!"
Wonderful Holiday Treat

"When I was eleven, I remember watching this version of "The Nutcracker" when it first came out on video, and I fell completely in love with it. I agree with the other reviewers about the not so top notch animation ; however the story line was intriguing. It is a bit different when comparing it to Tchaikovsky's ballet. This portrayal of the Christmas classic comes close to E.T.A. Hoffman's book "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King." (If you love the "Nutcracker" you should go read it. The best translation is by Ralph Manheim and illustrator by Maurice Sendak. Go check it out!!!) You have the leading character, Clara (Megan Fellows "Anne of Green Gables"), an adolescent girl who wants to hold on to her childhood. Nutcracker (Keiffer Sutherland), a young prince of the toys, who is cursed to live his life as a nutcracker. Uncle Drosselmier (I have no idea who play's this character) who is the instigator of Clara's and Nutcrackers meeting. Also, a handful of colorful supporting characters (the mouse queen played by Phylis Diller) that makes the story a delight to watch. Through out the story they have dance scenes and used Tchaikovsky's "Nutcracker" music as background music. What I mostly enjoyed in the movie is Clara's struggle to figure out what her true dreams are and whether to live in a fantasy world or face adulthood. The ending also leaves us questioning if Clara's adventures with her Nutcracker Prince was a dream or reality. Older children (as well as adults) will enjoy this movie. What I mean by older children (8 yrs and up) is that there is a bit of fighting and death scenes. Other than that, it's a great movie to watch during the holidays!!!"
The Best Christmas Movie!!!

"I've read some other reviews on the internet, and they said this movie was horrible, but I've never failed to watch it at least twice every Christmas season for every year I've been alive. The most blows are to the animation, but I don't think it's that bad, and come on, it's only 1990. But I fell in love with it the very first time I saw it. I've read the books, seen the ballets, own the soundtrack, and have Nutcrackers of my own. This is a wonderful movie for children and adult alike. It is close to the book, which I think is wonderful. It also has smatterings of humour, which is a nice touch. Drosselmeier was done fabulously, as were all the other characters. A must see for the holidays."

"We originally saw this movie on television and my kids fell in love with it. My children have worn out the video we purchased. The music, animation, and of course the story are wonderful! It is a great family video for any time of the year."
