Product Overview

Magic and adventure await in FernGully, a spectacular rainforest where a bat named Batty, whose radar has gone haywire, joins together with Crysta, Pips and the Beetle Boys to save their marvelous world from the evil Hexxus.

Ignoring the warnings of her friends, Crysta, the curious tree fairy, explores the world beyond FernGully. She discovers Zak, a real live human who is helping to demolish the rainforest. Once Zak sees the beauty and magic of FernGully, he vows to save it. But it may be too late. The diabolical Hexxus is on the loose and intent on destroying all of FernGully. This animated feature rocks with an original score performed by Sheena Easton, Raffi, Ton-Loc, and others.

Review "FernGully: The Last Rainforest" is an animated feature with political agenda -- a didactic cartoon. But that doesn't interfere with its being a whopping good time. The message here is a simple one -- an evil is being done to the natural wonders of the world, namely the rain forests -- and it's dealt with in simplistic, kiddie terms...The film is set in a verdant paradise -- filled with fairies, singing lizards, an insect motorcycle gang and one slightly askew bat (Robin Williams) -- which is being threatened by a smoke-belching, tree-eating machine called a Leveler...Moral lessons aside, the animators do a marvelous job of making the forest seem like a candy-colored Eden. As dazzling as it is, the film may not have the gravity and depth that the Disney animators achieve -- it's flatter, less dimensional -- yet the palette is brighter and the aura of enchantment is still there. The songs, as well as Alan Silvestri's score, are more influenced by rock than Tin Pan Alley, which is something of a mixed blessing. You do get Tone Loc, as an omnivorous striped lizard, singing "If I'm Gonna Eat Somebody (It Might as Well Be You)," and Robin Williams, who supplies the wigged-out personality for the Batty Koda, doing his inspired "Batty Rap," but beyond that the songs don't stick much in your mind.

Review "FernGully: The Last Rainforest" continues the fiction, so reassuring at times, that the most dangerous animal is Man. The story involves the destruction of the rain forest by the slashers and burners and loggers, and its defense by the sprites and fairies of the forest..."FernGully," a new animated feature, was made by humans, not jungle plants and beasts, and is thus more sentimental about the flora and fauna than they would ever be about us. It takes place in the coastal rain forests of Australia, which are seen to be inhabited by little fairies like Crysta, who looks like a Barbie doll, and Pips, who looks like GI Joe. All is watched over by wise old Magi Lune, a fairy godmother type...The animators did a lot of their sketches on location in the rain forest, and the visuals are very pleasing. The story tells a useful lesson, the jungle inhabitants are amusing, and although the movie is not a masterpiece it's pleasant to watch for its humor and sweetness. Kids may like it. Every time I see a movie that sentimentalizes the rain forest as a pastoral Eden, however, I remember those fish.
