    You can set your watch to the musical cues, and the songs themselves are forgettable at best, insipid at worst.

    A story that holds little suspense; we know exactly how happily this animated musical will end--and the wait isn't very diverting.

    It looks like a Disney knockoff, but not very similiar to Disney. It has great animation, solid voice acting, and very catchy songs. Don Bluth did a very good job at making this non-disney masterpiece. Full Review »

    This is a complete misrepresentation of Russia history! This isn't how it happened! Rasputin was dead by that point and he wasn't evil wizard! He was just a fraud. And the whole theory of Anastasia being alive is because some woman in Paris claimed to be her...And the movie completely misrepresents the ideals of the revolution, showing them as merciless evildoers...The revolution was caused by famine and hunger, Lenin and Trotski wanted to help the people and end the tyrannical reign of Tzar Nicholas II!!! **** THIS MOVIE!
