Richard Adams’ wonderful novel gets engaging and satisfying animated movie treatment filled with rich storytelling, populated with very real individuals inhabiting a very real world.  A band of rabbits illegally leave their warren after a prophecy of doom from a runt named Fiver (Richard Briers). In search of a place safe from humans and predators, they face all kinds of dangers, including a warren that has made a sick bargain with humankind, and a warren that is basically a fascist state. An engaging and satisfying adaptation that pulls off the same amazing trick that the novel did–you’ll forget that this is a story about rabbits.
