  1. Disney's updated, animated version respects its source material while aiming at kids who grew up with extreme sports and edgy music.
  2. Boasts the purest of Disney raptures: It unites the generations, rather than driving them apart.

    If Treasure Planet falls short of "Lion King's" classic status, it still proves there is plenty of room in animation for movies that aren't geared exclusively to 8-year-olds.
  4. There's no mistaking the fact that this hybrid misses the impact of the Disney classic, and even that of the excellent 1934 MGM version. Both of these films are surprisingly hard-edged and every bit as thrilling -- and scary -- as Stevenson's 1883 novel.

    An innovative -- if only moderately entertaining -- spin on Robert Louis Stevenson's classic Treasure Island.

    The film's total appeal may be undercut by a script that rarely feels inspired.
  7. The delicate magic of, for instance, Hayao Miyazaki's "Spirited Away," which Disney released earlier this fall, is absent from this brainless, mechanical picture.

    I know that a 10 out of 10 rating might seem a little overzealous, but I honestly believe it deserves it. This is by far one of the best I know that a 10 out of 10 rating might seem a little overzealous, but I honestly believe it deserves it. This is by far one of the best Disney films ever made. It spans both the "classics" era and the "new animation" era beautifully. It manages to have a level of depth that entices older viewers, while it stays kid friendly by having a basic plot that's easy to follow and humor that they can understand. It has a phenomenal cast and an outstanding soundtrack. I don't understand the reasoning behind the bad reviews this movie gets, but it definitely doesn't deserve it. It's a shame that it managed to slip through the cracks between the other kid movies that came out around the same time, and it deserves much more recognition than it has gotten. This movie is absolutely wonderful and I recommend it to anyone who likes Disney, old or new, enjoys good music, has ever been underestimated, and has dared to follow their dreams and prove themselves.

An incredible visual masterpiece. You still have all the old great qualities of the Disney name and some new additions. Some great voice talent from Joseph Gordon Levitt, Martine Short and others. It also happens to be an incredible tear jerker. Expand

While it isn't Disney's best work, it is my personal favorite. I'm a huge fan of anything pirate themed and an even bigger fan of Treasure Island. While it doesn't go anywhere near levels of depth the book had, but for a Disney Sci-fi take on it, it was very good. There is allot in the movie you need to take with a grain of salt, it is an animated movie about space pirates after all. If I had to make one criticism, then it would have to be the robot Ben. Martin Short's performance is just too over the top and it just doesn't feel right in regards to the rest of the characters in the movie. Overall: A great movie, that will always be one of my Disney favorites. Expand

But I haven't seen the movie yet, I've heard it's a good Disney movie and it may not be the best Disney movie just yet, but the animators just did a fantastic job on how the film just took exactly 10 years before the film's release in 2002 and the story looks a little familiar, but the acting is great, the CGI elements are incredible and even though it's still a cult following as of today, I think I might give it a go and buy it on Blu-Ray. Treasure Planet is a must-see. Maybe one of the most underrated movies in Disney history. Expand

    Although the characters could have been stronger this is still a pretty under-rated film.

    Instead of opting for a movie called "Treasure Island," Disney made the ridiculous mistake of making this pile of gimmicky garbage calledInstead of opting for a movie called "Treasure Island," Disney made the ridiculous mistake of making this pile of gimmicky garbage called "Treasure Planet." Personally, I blame this movie for destroying 2-d animated movies in the early 2000s, and I was really disappointed by Ron Clements and John Musker here, considering they've created the masterpieces "Aladdin" and "The Little Mermaid." Thankfully, they and Disney were able to redeem themselves by creating "The Princess and the Frog." Expand
