Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie is a straight-to-DVD sequel to Don Bluth's cult classic The Secret of NIMH, but that Bluth was not involved in this project, and it lacks the originality and depth of the first movie. Like the original, this story demonizes animal testing and provides some cartoonish scary imagery of cats, mice, and even humans in a test lab environment. An emphasis on teamwork and on thinking things through is nicely woven throughout the plot, but there's no real tension in the predictable story.
