5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME! June 16, 2001
By JM Yoda
I saw ATLANTIS last night, accompanied by my 65 year-old mother, and we both had a great time. No, it's no LION KING or BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, but it's not meant to be either; it's meant to be something different for Disney, and it is. The action scenes are amazing, sometimes evoking for me images from the STAR WARS movies. The dialogue is often sharp, fast and hilarious (maybe a little too fast to follow for younger kids), and lots of our fellow adult audience members were laughing out loud. The voice talent is, as always with Disney, fantastic; Michael J. Fox does a terrific job as Milo, Leonard Nimoy is perfect as the aged Atlantean king, Cree Summer is proud, intelligent and earnest as Princess Kida, and Milo's fellow adventurers are all equally well done. I didn't find the storyline at all difficult to follow, and while the concept of the giant crystal that keeps Atlantis alive is a bit "new-age", I don't think kids will have a problem with it. It's sci-fi, it's fantasy, it's adventure - it's awesome! It's also a whole lot more than what you've seen in the previews and commercials, so go see the movie TODAY! You'll have a great time, and it might just spark your interest in the search for the real (hey, there is intriguing evidence) Atlantis. Adventure lives!

Format:VHS Tape
Overall, this is good fun. It's an exciting film, highly imaginative, and visually spectacular, with a story that moves very quickly albeit thoroughly confusingly. I happily recommend it for family viewing.

Compared to recent Disney releases such as Cinderella II - Dreams Come True (Special Edition), 101 Dalmatians 2, and all of the other poorly done and profit-driven knockoffs, this film is an original gem. The animation is excellent, the characters are interesting and fun to watch, and the overall story is compelling, as well as very fast-paced. The movie certainly is suitable for kids as young as three or four, despite some of the more esoteric, non-sensical plot twists. We've got spectacular scenery, gadgets, battles, action, and explosions and fire, more than enough to keep the little ones fully engaged throughout. No sex, no drugs, no profanity, and only a little bit of blood (although the bad guys most certainly do get killed, neither graphically nor gloatingly).

Most impressive in this film is the artistic vision. Atlantis provides a fantastic opportunity to be creative, and the animators do not disappoint. The relatively modern (1907) setting allows some technical and scientific freedom for the animators, which was taken full advantage of. Everything is huge, massive in scale, from the steamship and its submarine, to the Leviathan guardian, to the tunnels and artifacts of Atlantis. For me, this is the most enjoyable part of the film, simply looking at the landscapes and backgrounds the animators have provided as backdrops for the action. This is excellent work, truly spectacular.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Your Typical Disney Film, but Lots of FUN March 15, 2002
By Kevin
Format:DVD
Despite the venom spewed forth by previous reviewers, I really think there's a justifiable place in the Disney vault for Atlantis, and I'll admit, it has quickly become an unlikely favorite of mine among Disney animated features. I hold it akin to an animated Star Wars, if that makes sense. With lots of action, no sing-alongs, and a cast of animated adults, this movie will lend itself more towards 8 year-olds than toddlers. I don't see a problem with that as children aren't one age and have different tastes.
This is not your usual, happy-go-lucky, sing-a-long style movie that Disney is known for proliferating. It takes me back to Disney's Black Cauldron in terms of mood and feel. It is somewhat dark, eerie, and action packed. But the characters are fun and interesting, and Michael J. Fox does a great job as Milo Thatch.
It is true that the story is set as a period piece in the early 1900's, but I don't agree with one viewer's gripe that historical accuracy was not maintained. Don't fault Disney for not being a historical educator. They're not! In response to "How are children to know the difference between what is real and what isn't if adults don't show them?", my first reaction was to think who would intrepret animation as reality? It's moving ink! It is not reality! It's entertainment. So what if you cross time periods? Or if the weapons and objects in Atlantis weren't invented for decades afterwards? By this logic, Rambo was a more educational movie because he used the weapons of the time?
And as far as "If you want to teach your children to smoke buy this movie." - Gimme a break. I'd like to believe that parents play a larger role in child development than to blame TV for how their kids turn out.
Great movie though. If you think you'd enjoy the action and adventure of Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark in an animated form, this is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great animation August 20, 2004
Format:DVD
As far as cartoons go, this is one of my favorites. Most definately ranking in the top 10. One of the reasons is that the animation and CG effects are fantastic. There are many shots where CG and animation are combined and the outcome is a wonderfully animated feature.

I also love the character Milo, voiced by a personal favorite of mine: Michael J. Fox. He is smart and brave and believes in doing what is right. Michael J. Fox's voice made this character wonderful. Also great was the voice and wise-cracks (most of his funny lines were ad-libbed in this movie) of Jim Varney. Regretably, this was his last roll but he made it very memorable. In fact, if you pay attention to his character you will find that the last two lines of this movie were done by somebody else after his passing. :(

The story is pretty good. Milo, a linguist and grandson of a famous archeologist, joins a team with a wide range of skills (and backgrounds) in the search for Atlantis. After going through the adventure of finding Atlantis, Milo makes friends with the inhabitants but finds that the search for Atlantis was not an exploritory mission, but a mission of greed. Milo and a few of the friends he picks up on the way must fight for what is right.

By far, this is a great and humorous film and should be picked up by every family with children. 5 stars, no questions!!!
