Sci Fi predictable ...By Amitabh#1 from CHIPPENHAM , 03 Mar 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Sci Fi predictable yarn told fashionably well through a mix of intense computer graphics and so-so hand painted animation. Hopelessly tainted cliches underscore some impressive cinematic sequences that have to be seen to be believed. Of the Treasure planet variety of escapism without the niceties of good animation. I would watch it again for the CGI alone.

A strange film to get used to - but a nice storylineBy SteveC24 (25 reviews) from West Kent , 10 Apr 2010The write-up for this film says 'spectacular animation'... well, I'm not sure I'd agree with that!
If you imagine the classic Disney animated films, which I watched as a child - this is very similar - I wouldn't be at all surprised if it wasn't animated by the same people in fact. Those scary teeth are back with a vengence!
However - once you get used to the far from polished animation, and figure out who the main characters are, it has a good storyline - pitched just right to appeal to both adults and children alike - no swearing - all very pleasant.
I personally didn't like the mix of 2D and 3D animation in it - as far as I'm concerned, you either make The Little Mermaid or Avatar... you can't combine the two!!!
Worth renting though for a lazy Saturday afternoon watch!
Could have been epic, but far too short.By a customer from Edinburgh , 07 Jul 2009Although I missed this on initial release this film has been recommended to me by several people because of it's (then) groundbreaking mix of 2D and 3D animation.
The story revolves around the impending destruction and potential salvation of humanity. Opening with an epic, and visually stunning prologue showing the evacuation of earth shortly before it's destruction, with fields of grass waving in the breeze and giant spaceships showing that this is not your standard Disney fare.
Visuals: The mix of 2D and 3D works well and show's an appreciable step up in quality from Don Bluth's previous films with scenes such as the Nebula run and the ice field battle finale standing out, although other 'transition' scenes show a noticeable drop in visual 'flair' what you'll really want to see is more.....which leads to the story...
The film feels far too short for the 'epic' story it's trying to convey. Almost every scene feels rushed and cut short. Characters are dropped in with little to no introduction, aren't really developed and are so 'cookie cutter' in nature it's ridiculous. A good example of this is the romance story, at no point are we shown why the leads fall for each other, all we know is he's our plucky hero, she's the love interest, therefore by the end of the film they are together.
I don't know if this was budgetary restraints or the fact this is a kids film but you're left with the feeling with more plot and character development the film could have really appealed to all ages.
Voice work is generally good although Drew Barrymore's is a little monotone for animation.
Anyway, if my review sounds a little harsh don't be put off, a film well worth renting and you will enjoy it but you'll just be left wondering what could have been...

Titan AEBy a customer from London , 24 Feb 2009Good animation and voice acting, let down by a plot that out-twists itself. Er... who's the bad guy again?
