One of Bakshi's best, It has everything that kids like about films. It has action, a fantasy land, weird creatures and battles between good and evil. Based on J. R. R. Tolkein's classic fantasy trilogy, it's the story of a hobbit named Frodo, who has to take an evil ring with him on a journey to destroy it before it destroys him and everyone else. The rotoscoping in this one is fantastic and the story stays true to the books through most of the picture. The low point is that it ends too abruptly and you don't get to see the real ending that was in the books. In fact, it only goes through one and a half of the entire trilogy. Other than this rather big flaw, it's a pretty cool movie and the kids will enjoy it.
