Its shear enchantment is enough to make you look past its low-budget animation, but "The Last Unicorn" quickly loses your attention due to its tedious plot and thin characters who never say or do anything interesting.

This is a film my children watched countless times and I remember Christmases where I would be pottering over the Mince Pie making whilst they watched and I would be in tears as the songs lyrics pierced my heart. It is sentimental, but then I am too - too sentimental for some perhaps but as a tale of friendship, heroism and deeply felt loss this cartoon seems to be perfectly pitched and if the hearts strings are pulled, so be it.

Based on the beloved novel of the same name by Peter S. Beagle who also wrote the film's screenplay. This film has gorgeous visuals and smooth flowing animation thanks to the talented artists at Topcraft Studio in Japan (which also animated the pre-Ghibli movie Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind). I would have rated this movie with 4 stars if it wasn't for its terrible soundtrack and weak voice acting from Mia Farrow, as the unicorn from the title, and Jeff Bridges, as the most annoying ever prince of fairy tales stories.
