This restored, animated valentine to the Beatles offers viewers the rare chance to see a work that's been substantially improved by its technical facelift, not just supersized with extra footage. Recognizing that its song-studded soundtrack alone makes Yellow Submarine a video annuity, United Artists has lavished a frame-by-frame refurbishment of the original feature, while replacing its original monaural audio tracks with a meticulously reconstructed stereo mix that actually refines legendary original album versions.

What emerges is a vivid time capsule of the late '60s and a minor milestone in animation. The music represents the quartet's zenith--Rubber Soul, Revolver, and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. The story line, cobbled together by producer Al Brodax and a committee of writers, is a broad, feather-light allegory set in idyllic Pepperland, where the gentle citizens are threatened by the nasty, music-hating Blue Meanies and their surreal arsenal of henchmen, with the Beatles enlisted to thwart the bad guys. Visually, designer Heinz Edelmann mixes the biomorphic squiggles, day-glo palette, and Beardsley-esque portraits of Peter Max with rotoscoped still photographs and film; Edelmann's animated collages also nod to Andy Warhol and Magritte in properly psychedelic fashion, which works wonderfully with such terrific songs.

High orthodox Beatlemaniacs can still grouse that the animated Fab Four are (literally) flat archetypes, but that's missing the sheer bloom of the music or the giddy, campy fun of the visuals. Making sense of the story is second to submerging blissfully in the sights and sounds of this video treat. --Sam Sutherland

5.0 out of 5 stars MAYOR SUBMARINE EXPLOSIONS BLUE MEANIES! Feb. 22 2014
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
"Yellow Submarine" is one of those movies that, for me, is pure nostalgia. It was my first introduction to the Beatles, and one of the first non-Disney animated movies I saw.

Even though it makes absolutely no sense, "Yellow Submarine" is still a delightfully weird, acid-tripping story that bounces all over a colorful galaxy of hallucinatory nonsense. And yes, it stars the Beatles as heroes riding around in a Yellow Submarine, seeking to defeat the Blue Meanies. No joke.

Under the sea, there is an idyllic land known as Pepperland, where music rules. But then the music-hating Blue Meanies invade, petrifying the people with green apples and sealing away St. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Fortunately Old Fred the sailor manages to escape in a yellow submarine, to find help.

He finds it in Liverpool, where he enlists the depressed Ringo, and subsequently Ringo's four buddies John, Paul and George. So the yellow submarine sets out to Pepperland, but encounters many strange dangers along the way -- the Sea of Time, the Sea of Science, a monstrous vacuum, giant stomping boots, the Foothills of the Headlands (which is full of giant heads), the "nowhere man" in his "nowhereland," and the mind-bending Sea of Holes.

But when they get to Pepperland, they find a ruined shell ruled over by the Nazi-like Blue Meanies. Can the Beatles elude petrification/capture, and somehow manage to bring music back to Pepperland?

"Yellow Submarine" has almost no story, and the dialogue often makes little sense. This is a movie that is all about the visuals -- colorful, wild, acid-tripping visuals that seem to be trying to dazzle your eyes.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic in my opinion July 24 2013

You have to respect what the Beatles did with this movie. I would assume if your buying it you have already seen it, in which case there is no reason to convince you of its greatness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finalement March 22 2012
By Happy
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Finalement j'ai pu voir ce dessin animé qui me branche avec l'art Pop, les années hippies, les couleurs voyantes, respirant la beauté et la légèreté du Peace and Love malgré la guerre du Vietnam et toutes ces protestations. Toujours l'histoire du bon amoureux de la vie contre le mauvais tyran mortel. Les voies ne sont pas celles des Beatles, mais elles me plaisent beaucoup. J'ai aimé aussi le documentaire sur Magical Mystery Tour, Help et Hard Days Night si vous voulez entendre les vraies voies de John, Paul, George et Ringo qui ont tant parlé de l'amour et la paix dans toutes ses formes.

5.0 out of 5 stars My daughter is 5 and loves it! July 6 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I never thought the movie was great until my 5 year old started watching it. I am hooked (or re-hooked on the Beatles). The music and images are far better than anything on TV. Sure, squint your eyes (or ears) real hard and find some type of references to the 60's - but the're not there if you simply enjoy the feast.
My daughter now hums the songs, we have a Beatles poster in her room - - an no more Sponge Bob, Scooby Doo, or those Princesses. YEA!

Can't give 5 stars but the movie is enjoyable. DVD has English subtitles which is good. Lots of pun-based humor. The animation does feel like 40 years old, and at the beginning its a bit annoying because it's "jumpy"/low FPS, but I got used to it.
The movie has a weird and surrealist feeling, that I liked.

In my case that was 1969. That's when I saw this in a double billing with Barbarella (1968) at West Point, NY.

The music is great and it brings back a part of history. Can the Beatles save Pepperland? Remember we all live in a Yellow Submarine. Instead of just buying the soundtrack, buy the movie and you have them both. I guess I will have to buy it also to hear "Hey, Bulldog!" Of course as with most movies there will always be someone one that prefers the original and knows that it was cut that way on purpose.

And now it is time for a whole new generation to enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars a good laugh! March 14 2005
By Jodi H.
Format:DVD
me and my friends are fans of The Beatles so we figured we'd watch it one night.. haha we died laughing! thier voices are so mellow! the music is great, the plot is funny because its pretty strange, and theres some great scenes especially for Hey Bulldog, When Im 64, Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds, All Together Now and All You Need Is Love! So, I'd say its a pretty good and entetaining laugh for anyone who enjoys The Beatles and their music.

¿Do you wanna watch a movie...
with no blood, no bad words, no nudes, no witchery, no romance, and... no Hollywood?
Sounds boring?
Well, my nephews love this movie. Perhaps it's because it's quite the same style as Sesame Street cartoons. I love it, too. But my pop-music-fan brother... He just can't stand it. It's too psychedelic for his simple mind. Some of my friends hate it, too. But strangely, kids love it! Could it be that there is a something about appreciating this kind of things that most adults seem to loose when they grow up?
If you still can appreciate things like you did when you were a child, you'll love this one.
