Entertaining Children's Version of the Novel
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1986)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

This animated Australian version of the classic Robert Louis Stevenson novel starts off with Henry Jekyll being laid to rest. We then flash forward twenty-years to when a couple boys ask their grandmother about the legend of Jekyll and Hyde so she tells them the story.

I've seen so many versions of this novel that it's not even funny. It's even harder trying to come up with an original or different way to tell the story so I give the producers of this thing a tip of the hat for making it appeal to children. For the most part this was a pretty good film and I think it will appeal to children more than the adults. Nothing here is overly scary and the animation is good for the era. The vocal performances were also quite good and I thought the filmmakers did a very good job with the look and attitude of Hyde. This certainly isn't a masterpiece but it's at least fun.
