Fast forward through the live action parts.
23 December 2003 | by ricknorwoodSee all my reviews

I've just watched this VHS, because I am a fan of anything by Chuck Jones. His contribution consists only of character design. The cat is good. The bird and grandpapa are very bad. The hunters, the wolf, and the duck are ok. The writer and the composer both think they can improve on Prokofiev. Why do Hollywood types who try to "improve" classics never wonder why the work is considered a classic (and they're not)? There is nothing really wrong with the live action parts. There are even a couple of nice touches in the first minute or so. But it is obvious that the live action is just to kill time and expand a less than thirty minute cartoon to fill out a "hour" time slot. The setting is changed from Russia to Switzerland, which seems pointless. Like the Disney version, they save Sonja from being eaten. This version doesn't even come close to the Disney version.
