I plan to read the book sometime this year so my opinion is solely based on this film.

Although it is quite dark and gruesome at bits, I saw this film at a young age but wasn't distracted by the violence. Animted films with a grittier edge and underlying tone have always appealed to me much more than Disney films. Don Bluth was a great example of this.

I thought this was just okay, but this opinion is colored by having read the book first, which I felt was far superior. I think this film might be more enjoyable if you have not read the book (and are not planning to).

Watching this, I realized that when I was a kid I used to watch so much more real gruesome stuff then nowadays. This movie actually shocked me and in the end I realized how overly protective we've become.
The story remind me of a much happier animation that had such a "adult" perspective of animals and their society.

"16.3 Oikein kunnon hupia koko perheelle. Itse näin tämän vasta nyt ensimmäistä kertaa, eli mitään nostalgia-arvoa ei tässä ole omalla kohdalla. Näin vanhemmalla iällä tämän piirretyn pahamaineisen väkivaltaiset kohtaukset eivät myöskään liiemmin shokeeranneet. Maailman menoa kuvataan villikanien silmin tässä hyvinkin uskottavasti."

"Pretty much the whole film. The scared, terrified expressions of those cute, adorable bunnies says everything. Maybe​, they've seen the film, too?"

“Crude tale of rabbits as a running anguished race. Blood and shadows and a pretty sequence of a premonition.” read more
