    Pure slam-bam space opera.
  2. Titan A.E. is ''Star Wars'' pulped and mashed into flavorless kiddie corn.
  3. Despite some gorgeous sequences. . . Titan A.E. is bland.
  4. It's not the story that's the story here, it' the film' bravura visual look.
  5. 40
    Feels like a been-here-done-that dud.
  6. 50
    Never feels like anything more than a Saturday morning cartoon pumped up to big-screen dimensions.
  7. The modeling of human figures and the sense of depth are both impressive; the characters themselves are mainly idiotic.
  8. Visually compelling, relentlessly loud and so shallow you need just a fragment of your brain to follow it.
  9. A modern digitized lollapalooza concocted out of old-fashioned slam-bang space opera elements.
  10. The real star of the movie is the background work.

    When it shifts into action mode, the movie can be a spectacular rush.

    Visually impressive but woefully dumbed-down.
  13. It continually crashes and burns on its own banality.
  14. It moves so fast you almost forget it leaves the characters in its wake.

    A space shot worth taking.
  16. Like watching a 90-minute game of the video game Asteroids - all bang and no buck.

    We should expect more of summer fare than that it merely be a visual junk-food snack as we cool off in the chill of a darkened theater.
  18. In the end, it is inadequate, juiceless storytelling that deprives Titan A.E. of any dramatic force.

    Despite occasional awkwardness in character motion, viewers will be swept away by the luxuriant creation of alternate universes.
  20. The glory of the picture is the eye-popping, surreal backgrounds that blast the conventional characters off the screen.
  21. Is it worth the goofy characters and weak story for the effects and action sequences? Absolutely.
  22. 65
    What ultimately keeps Titan A.E. from taking off is an ordinary script.
  23. 20
    Suggestive of nothing so much as Saturday-morning TV.
  24. 75
    An impressive array of themes, stories and sequences.
  25. It is impossible to take your eyes off the screen.
  26. Plunges into a void created by a stale and incredibly derivative plot.

    Not only one of the most spectacular cartoons ever made, but also a reasonably adult piece of sci-fi.

    An overproduced cartoon without a freeze-dried ounce of wit.

    Redeems itself with a bold and grungy action-adventure flavor.

    Everybody looked at this movie thinking this is going to be one of the best animated films ever. But in reality your trying to say slow downEverybody looked at this movie thinking this is going to be one of the best animated films ever. But in reality your trying to say slow down and explain your reasoning for this movie. The events happened way too quick. Also that one character, I think his name is Tech, was so quick to be off the screen and you don't even no his importance. for the future you need to explain the events. Full Review »

AbsoluteEven now in 2012, this is still a visually stunning movie. It has memorable characters, good humour and an action-packed story line. Absolute recommendation for any Sci-fi fan. I'm deducting points for the horrible immersion-breaking vocals in the sound track, though! Full Review »
