This review is from: Treasure Planet (10th Anniversary Edition) (Blu-ray + DVD) (Blu-ray)
Some may call it a cult classic, I just call it awful. I saw this movie in Chicago with my wife when it came out and nearly walked out before it was over; had it not been a slow night with bad weather I probably would have. My advice, don't let the Disney name draw you in because this movie isn't worth watching for free on cable.

I thought it was Ok. Sure it's not a masterpiece nor is a truely faithful adaptation of the original story, "Treasure Island", but for what it is, it does have its moments. If you think this is awful, clearly, you probably never heard/seen "Home of the Range". (seen it in parts, and couldn't get into it. It's that bad.) That film will make "Treasure Planet" look good. Give it another shot.

It was better then ok! Obv it is not true to the adaption but it keeps you glued to the television! The Characters are great and likeable! Dont really understandSean aka Steeles comment? Surely a guy with that sort of name, is better off watching a empty headed film with Vin Diesel in it?

You're obviously well aged to have gone to see a Disney movie with your wife 20 years ago, then knock a vastly underrated classic coming out on DVD/Blu-Ray.
Thanks for letting millions of unsuspecting adults know that they may not enjoy a film made for children. Whatever would we do without incredibly helpful folks like you?
Were all the crappy live action films sold out?

Man! It's people like you that remind me not to take myself so seriously...(rule 162 for friends of Bill W.). Even when you're writing a review, your rage and anger are coming off the screen in waves!!! (maybe that's radon - and I better get a new PC! ;p)
Can you not go to a movie - especially an animated Disney movie - and just sit back and take it for what it is? Don't critique it; don't compare it to the book (a CLASSIC I might add!) Relax and enjoy the movie for what it IS - not for what it is NOT...
I really hope you learn how to do so, or you're going to have "health problems" at a young age. I really pray that you don't - but you have to put in the "foot work"...
stay well, Mr Steele (HA! I didn't even know your name! How appropriate!)

It would be nice to know why you didn't like the movie. As the review stands, it simply says "I didn't like the it".
