    One of Disney's more understated films of late. It's an epic retelling of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea which contains high energy and huge creativity.

    Sadly this movie goes by way too fast for you to know what is going on which causes the whole movie to collapse. It does have some great animated moments though. Hey it was a good try for Disney. I give this movie 42%.

    What has happened to Disney? Not only can they not come up with anything original, but now they are completely straying from the rules when it comes to their animated summer movies. It was an interesting story, mildly entertaining, and Mole was funny, but it just wasn't what it should have been. I kept waiting for some furry animal to show up and help out Milo or for them all to What has happened to Disney? Not only can they not come up with anything original, but now they are completely straying from the rules when it comes to their animated summer movies. It was an interesting story, mildly entertaining, and Mole was funny, but it just wasn't what it should have been. I kept waiting for some furry animal to show up and help out Milo or for them all to burst in song like all of the other movies, but it never happened. What's worse, it was rated PG?? Come on, Eisner!! Everybody liked the other, typical Disney cartoons but I didn't hear too many good reviews for this one. Go back to what works. Expand

    Axe-wielding maniacs seem a little too strong for the kiddies. Some unrealistic characters and plot holes make it less enjoyable for adults. Spectacular animation and lots of action are it's only saving grace.

    Disney is definitely plunging into dangerous waters. Instead of more glorious films like The Little Mermaid and Aladdin, we're stuck with mediocre films like Atlantis: The Lost Empire.

    Overall an enjoyable movie for the kids but had much more potential. Somewhat enjoyable but not a classic by any stretch.

    A wide-eyed, action-adventure throwback to the era of Disney's magnificent adaptation of "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea."

    The result is cutesy but harsh, a hybrid of saucer-eyed anime and square-jawed angularity that brings to mind an edgier "Pokemon."
  3. Story line and characterization are decidedly old-fashioned, and a curious decision about production design gives this wide-screen cartoon some of the look and feel of a Saturday morning TV cartoon series
