  1. A thrilling tale smartly told, with an abundance of wit and invention. It's a classic.
  2. 80
    A monumental treat as well as a crafty assemblage of mythologies.
  3. 75
    A well-told, vividly imagined movie that doesn't pretend to be more than it is and doesn't lean on pop-culture references to win over its viewers.
  4. Has my eye, seduced by the devious and tactile delights of ''Shrek,'' already evolved in tandem with the technological leaps in computer animation? Or is Atlantis simply a Disney dud?
  5. The eye candy can't quite compensate for the murky mess of a plot.
  6. 50
    What Atlantis gains in chills and thrills, it loses in pure emotion.
  7. 20
    Doesn't seem geared to kids at all: It's so adult that it's massively boring.

    This movie was pretty well done. I think they could have added a little more, but other movies (pokemon comes to mind) are really lacking. This movie was pretty well done.

It leads me to believe that they simply stamped it with a "mediocre" label and didn't seriously watch it because it wasn't like Disney's other cartoons by comparison. The fantasy elements I thought were exceptional, and the story, admittedly is abrupt, has at least more creativity and originality in it than carbon copying and sugar coating old "brothers grimm" tales. It is grossly under-appreciated simply because of its more serious nature. In a time where Disney is making movies with serious elements like Pirates of the Caribbean, you'd think Atlantis would at least do more than collect dust by now. It is funny how a decade ago Disney's seriously oriented movies were never famous, and now their most famous franchises aren't even cartoons anymore. Expand

Other scenes made me sad. And others made me glad. It is a movie any age can enjoy. It was an excellent rendition of an ancient myth. The animation was somewhat odd, but nothing new from Disney. It was definitely better than expected for a Disney movie with no singing. Expand
