“I can see! It’s a miracle!” said Batty Koda.

This movie was visually stunning and had a great cast of characters.  It begins with a construction worker being shrunk by one of the forest creatures and realizes the error of what he had been doing. The rest of the movie is somewhat anticlimactic, however it is visually beautiful and the score is absolutely fantastic!

Here is the basic plot…Crysta (Samantha Mathis) is a fairy who lives in FernGully, a rainforest in Australia, and has never seen a human before. In fact, she is told they are extinct. But when a logging company comes near the rainforest, she sees that they do exist, and even accidentally shrinks one of them: a boy named Zak (Jonathan Ward). Now her size, Zak sees the damage that the company does and helps Crysta to stop not only them, but an evil entity named Hexxus (Tim Curry), who feeds off pollution.

So it has its merits

The score by Alan Silvestri is top notch and i’d include it in one of my best for the year this came out.  The singing songs are alright, but it wouldn’t be at my top list. I have a few clips of some of the songs though.

You can find the score on Amazon.

Would you like some clips?
