Plot: A Disney animated version of "Treasure Island". The only difference is that the film is set in outer space with alien worlds and other galactic wonders. Runtime: 95 mins Release Date: 27 Nov 2002
This movie, even though given a bad rap by the critics, happens to be one of the best movies in the world. If you have not seen it, step away from your computer and rush out to get it. I don't wanna see you till you have that movie. Got it? Good now watch it. This movie's amazing graphics, twisting and riveting storyline, although based on the book Treasure Island it has many changes, including story changes, characters, and its planets not islands. Its amazing even though made by Disney anyone from age 10-100 can love this movie! The final sense with Silver and Hawkins is amazing and <more>
yet, in a way a bit sad. That might have been a spoiler thats why I checked Spoiler I also Loved the Music, it was amazing. The greatness in the whole film was flawless. The song "I'm still here" by the goo goo dolls was spectacular. I could not find anything about this whole film that did not make me smile, with the voices fitting the characters perfectly, and the amzaing graphics! This was a amazing film by Disney. It would make Robert Louis Stevenson proud, especially for the name of the ship the RLS Legicy; or the Robert Louis Stevenson Legicy. You could really feel Jims struggle, and Silver's emotions. I could not find one flaw with this movie! I gave it a 11 out of 10.
Let's put it this way, with no fan-girlish outbursts Which is pretty hard . This movie has pretty much everything required of a superb movie.As is the case of most Disney movies, there is a light-hearted side and a serious side, but this movie is slightly more serious my preference . This movie has so much heart and a lovable cast of characters. I don't think it was completely for teenage boys, it just centered around one with a situation that is sadly familiar with many of us.The atmosphere is such an imaginative one, who cares if you can't breathe in the vacuum of space? The <more>
book from Disney explains that this is a kind of parallel universe. Nebulae, galaxies, comets...they all are stunning with these 18th century ships. I personally think that most spaceships look rather alienating.The soundtrack may be drowned out at moments, but the times you hear it, it fits well. The song by The Goo Goo dolls' lead singer is perfect for Jim, and the sequence in the movie is more worth watching than the music video! And the story! I think the depth, connections and growth of the characters are certainly levels above Treasure Island, thanks to the Disney touch. I really don't want to spoil anything. Just buy it, if you haven't over the last three years.
When this film first came out, I was quite a bit skeptical, given what I thought was another lame Disney storyline like Atlantis, Emperor's New Groove and Mulan, and opted out of seeing it in theaters. Now 3 years later I was curious to see what it was all about, so I gave it a chance and rented it. To my surprise, I was blown away by the brilliant animation and complex storyline going beyond the book , and wondered how this film could have been so overlooked. The coming of age story about a teenage boy deals with real issues in today's world, and how each of us has our own potential <more>
to reach. I also loved the score and the music by John Rzeznik. The only complaints I have is that Jim looks much older than his supposed age 15 , perhaps 17 or so, and that the robot was obnoxious and shouldn't have been added in at the end. All in all, I'd have to put this on my list of favorite Disney films since The Lion King and Pocahontas.
I loved T.P from the first time I saw the preview. I went to see it with my friends and we were just dazzled by the brilliance of the story. sorry about my cruddy spelling I instantly took a liking to young Jim Hawkins and the charming John Silver, and fell in love with the wonderful animation. It's been three years since the movie came out, and I'm still crazy about it. I've watched it over 300 times. It is truly wonderful and I'd recommend it to anyone who likes real honest to god animated movies. About the Disney's biggest flop thing, chill out people. That's no <more>
reason not to watch the movie. It's simply a mater of opinion. If you don't like the outer space theme, or whatever, then don't watch it. Just don't go around discrediting it....There are fans of the movie out there, lots of them, so just CHILL! Hope I was at least a little helpful! -Blackbird
* - This review contains spoilers - *Okay. So we have our movie here, "Treasure Planet". Yes the name may sound a bit cheesy, and yes it is another adaptation of Treasure Island. A lot of people just can't get past those things and thus end up watching it with a far more criticizing eye then it should be viewed with. It's its own movie, even if it was created out of Robert Louis Stevenson's book. If you rent or buy the movie, just keep that in mind. Don't get caught up with scenes being played out incorrectly to the book or new characters added that shouldn't be <more>
there.I found the movie very enjoyable for many different reasons, but it's the characters that stood out most to me. They were each animated with, in my opinion, practically as much life as real people.There were no token villains like in the majority of Disney movies. The "bad" characters in this one were just people and aliens who had different motivation, namely greed for treasure. Though perhaps the spider creature Mr. Scroop might be an exception, but his story is pretty vague.Also one thing that was absent was the typical "guy-and-girl" relationship, where the main male and female characters fall in love over the course of the movie. Instead this happens to supporting characters. On the subject of relationships, I must definitely mention that the one between the main character Jim Hawkins and the cyborg John Silver was perhaps the most original one I've ever seen in an animated movie or maybe also live action . Since Jim's father left he and his mother early in his life, he didn't grow up having much of a male mentor. On the journey that he eventually ends up in, Silver then came into the picture and accidentally became a type of unofficial surrogate father. Teaching Jim about the ships and keeping an eye out for him among the crew members. And yet at the same time Silver was also a sort of main villain, planning a mutiny on the ship and aiming to steal the riches from Flint's Trove. But still, he really did have a friendship with Jim, no matter how much he denied it to the crew. The mutiny did come about and Jim heavily interfered with his lifelong plans...but even when he had several opportunities to get rid of him and save the plans, he chose to let Jim live instead.I've never been a very articulate person in describing things, but anyone who's watched the film would understand what I'm trying to say about the originality of the characters. Words never do many things justice.Perhaps I'll recreate a better review if I end up with a way to explain myself more elegantly
Someday This Will Be Hailed as a Great Film (by dbborroughs)
Somewhere along the way this film got lost. I'm inclined to think that Disney buried this film on purpose since it opened at exactly the same time as the latest Harry Potter film. This was the film that, according to Disney, the future of traditional animation hung, and they went out of their way to bury it, going so far as to declare it a failure even before the first days grosses came out.The reputation of this film is bad, which is a shame since its actually quite a good film. Yes, the idea of Treasure Island in space does tend to put one off on the face of it, but the film does <more>
everything it can to change that for the viewer once you actually watch it.This is a perfectly cast. I must single out Brian Murray's Performance as Long John Silver. It is the first time I ever thought seriously that a voice actor should be nominated for an Oscar. Its simply one of the high points in all of animated film history.The film that looks great, all the designs are based on the classic illustrators like Pyle, Wyeth and the others of that ilk and focused through their spiritual child of Tom Kidd. The animation is amazing, a brilliant mix of traditional and computer styles that compliment each other nicely.The story telling is of the classic swashbuckling style and draws you in instantly with a battle between ships and then never lets up, well it's fine until it hits the bump about the time that Martin Short comes in and things try to be too grand towards the end. Still the movie gets back on track and finishes off nicely.Don't believe the negative hype, see this film and be pleasantly surprised.
Everyone show watch and buy this movie if for no other reason than to support Roy Disney against Michael Eisner!!This poor movie suffered from political mudslinging between these two. As "Treasure Island" was one of the Disney company's first and most successful live-action pictures, Roy had always been passionate about making an animated version. Eisner, ever Roy's opponent, was in charge of the advertising budget. So, when Treasure planet was released, without any typically "Disney" fanfare, it met with unsurprisingly small attendance.The day after it was <more>
released, Eisner held a press conference, declaring "Treasure Planet" a flop, and blaming it for Disney's poor 3rd quarter performance. Roy promptly quit the company his uncle and father had built.As far as the movie itself goes, the controversy robbed what I think is the finest example of a "Disney" movie since Mulan. The animation is spectacular, the vocal talents are superb, and Brian Murray is one of the greatest Long John Silvers I've ever heard.But beyond the technical qualities, "Treasure Planet" captures the spirit of Disney much better than recent Disney debacles see Valiant, Chicken Little, Home on the Range . I think the end product came out very nicely, and, larger than that, I think Walt would have been proud to put his name on this one.
Worth more than the credit everyone gives it... (by blueraptor77)
Upfront, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie beyond what I thought I would take from it. Being an animation major I can thoroughly pick apart most movies, especially what Disney puts out now-a-days. Unfortunately for their movie Treasure Planet, either it was ahead of itself ambitiously, or it was rumors that spread like wildfire when it was being released that killed it. Actually, that's why I didn't see this film until very recently, because of everyone's and mine at the time prejudice against Disney features springing up amongst way too many viewers, and especially for this <more>
film. I believed them that this film was terrible, and subsequently never got to see it until a week ago. Man, everyone was wrong.I'll be honest, and give it its weak points: The main character Jim is quite blank and not very well developed. Which is bad because an audience cannot connect to a flat, central character. Secondly, the CG although very well stylized I think didn't mesh as well with the 2D animation as it should have. Other than that...you might pick apart a few other things about the movie and no, the dialouge isn't that bad. it's a G rated movie...it's not supposed to be incredibly complex .Treasure Planet keeps pretty tight in line with the original classic, "Treasure Island", even when softening it down for a younger audience. I grew up with that story, and had no problem with the adaptation in Planet. Also, this film contains two masterfully animated characters, John Silver and Dr. Dilbert Doppler animated by two masters, Glen Keane and Sergio Pablos, respectively . If you're an animation enthusiast, these two are gold to watch especially the pencil tests in the special features on the DVD .This whole review is a little long-winded, but in closing, this movie is more than what was said of it. If anything dealt the killing blow in this movie failing at the box office, it was everyone's bad word for it. Not true. Please see for yourself!
Incredible Visuals Compensate for an Overly Familiar Story (by kalel6868)
Robert Louis Stephenson's `Treasure Island' has always been one of my favorite classic stories. The tale of a teenage boy thrust into the adventure of a lifetime features pirates, swordfights, an ocean voyage, betrayals, and buried treasure among many other classic adventure-story ingredients what's not to love?It's been filmed countless times before, in many various incarnations, including one with the Muppets and an animated version starring the Monkees' Davy Jones; so what new way can be thought up to retell this hundred-year-old story for twenty-first century <more>
audiences?Set it in space, of course; a brilliant idea that pays off handsomely.To be fair, TREASURE PLANET is not the first film to set the story among the stars; that distinction belongs to the 1987 Italian live-action TV Mini-series TREASURE ISLAND IN OUTER SPACE. But that version has scarcely been seen outside of Europe, and I seriously doubt that it could hold a candle to the stunning visuals seen here.And the key word here is VISUALS. This is arguably the most visually stunning animated film to come out of the powerhouse Disney animation factory, EVER. The canvas on which they paint here is wide and broad, and full of breathtaking color and beauty. Pirate ships with solar sails soar across a canopy of stars, and behemoths that look like whales trumpet along beside them. Alien beings both friendly and fierce populate the universe, and futuristic machinery stands side-by-side with nineteenth century technology. I've never seen anything quite like it.Oh, and there is a story here as well; amazingly, it is quite faithful to the source material in both outline and details, only deviating from the text where necessary to transplant the action from the oceans of nineteenth century Earth to the planets and solar systems of the future.It centers around Jim Hawkins, a fatherless boy constantly getting into trouble with the law for his rambunctious, extreme-sports ways, who gets the chance to prove himself when a dying pirate leaves him a treasure map with his dying breath. In short order he finds himself cabin boy on a stargoing vessel bound for the legendary Treasure of a Thousand Worlds; along the way path is blocked by pirates and collapsing stars and other perils of interstellar travel.If I have any complaint at all with the film it would be that it sticks a little TOO close to the novel, some of the nineteenth century ideals just don't ring true in the futuristic setting; but that's easily forgivable compared to the wondrous images this magic film offers.
