Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

A pet project of Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and Hercules codirectors Ron Clements and John Musker, Treasure Planet is an ambitious animation hybrid (traditional animation combined with elaborate CGI backgrounds). It was the subject of numerous in-studio battles, but Disney office politics and a poor public reception distracted from its many admirable qualities, not the least being its overall fidelity to Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novel Treasure Island. Curiously revamped as a sci-fi adventure with spacefaring galleons, flintlock ray guns, and extreme-sports attitude, it caters to an young audience for whom Stevenson's adventure is an unknown quantity, revving up the material with arcade-game excitements. It's entertaining, for what it is, and kids will surely enjoy it. Maybe next time, however, Disney will follow its own legacy and properly adapt Stevenson (as they did with their 1950 live-action classic) for a new, and hopefully receptive, generation. --Jeff Shannon

Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
VIDEO:

Treasure Planet arrives at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.68:1 encode. Even lesser Disney animated feature films earn A-class treatments. This video transfer is almost perfect, with slight banding (the Etherium clouds in the opening shot). Colours are rich and radiant. Primaries are subdued but potent. Black levels are as dark and deep as a black hole (quite literally at the 42-minute mark). Contrast is consistent, with great detail. The animators' hand-drawn line art is crisp and refined. (4.5/5)

AUDIO:

Treasure Planet sails the deadly Etherium seas with a brisk, spirited DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. Fiery supernova debris hurtles past the bow of the RLS Legacy. A black hole roars and hisses as a helpless crew is dragging into its maw. Space whales glide alongside an astonished young man. A giant energy beam slices through the center of a planet and sends a sea of treasure hurtling into an opening abyss. And those are just some of Planet's more notable sonic showcases. Dialogue is clean, clear and perfectly prioritized throughout. (4.5/5)

STORYLINE:

A futuristic twist on Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island, Treasure Planet follows restless teen Jim Hawkins on a fantastic journey across the universe as cabin boy aboard a majestic space galleon. Befriended by the ship's charismatic cyborg cook, John Silver, Jim blossoms under his guidance and shows the makings of a fine shipmate as he and the alien crew battle a supernova, a black hole, and a ferocious space storm. But even greater dangers lie ahead when Jim discovers that his trusted friend Silver is actually a scheming pirate with mutiny on his mind.

Format:DVD
Within the first few minutes of this science-fiction adaptation of Stevenson's TREASURE ISLAND, you'll be amazed with the vibrant blend of hand-animation and CGI movement.
Within the next few minutes, you'll be bored with the flat charactetizations, forced unfunny humor, and lazy by-the-numbers transcription of the novel's plot into a poorly thought-out science-fiction universe.
This is Disney at its most superficial and cold. Science-fiction fans will be frustrated with the shallow and dismissive explanations for the background (why, given all this technology, do people wield swords and use ropes to tie themselves to decks -- and what are they breathing, anyway?), most adults will tire of the bland dramatics, and only the youngest kids will stay awake for most of it. Martin Short's malfunctioning robot must be one of the least funny of Dinsey's comic-relief characters. Rent LILO & STITCH instead if you have kids (or just rent it again). If you want more intelligent adult science-fiction animation, check out the similarly titled but completely different FANTASTIC PLANET. The little seen TITAN A.E. also explores the space opera animation setting in a much more satisfactory way. Even DreamWorks SINBAD: LEGEND OF THE SEVEN SEAS is more enjoyable.

3.0 out of 5 stars ITS AWFULLY DARK & GLOOMY UP THERE! Jan. 7 2004
Format:DVD
In Brief
The legendary loot of a thousand worlds inspires an intergalactic treasure hunt when fifteen year old Jim Hawkins (Joseph Gorden-Levitt) stumbles upon a map to the greatest pirate trove in the universe. Based on Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island Classic novel, the film follows Jim's fantastic journey across a parallel universe as a cabin boy aboard a space-galleon. Blossoming under the guidance of the cyborg cook John Silver (Brian Murray), Jim and the alien crew battle supernovas, black holes and ferocious space storms on their quest for the gold, but none of this can compare to deadly dangers that lay ahead.
Review
One can't help but recall the surrealism of Yellow Submarine when watching this film, as the characters and even the concept of wooden Galleons with engines large enough to put the Millennium Falcon to shame fill a universe of oddly proportioned aliens and robots. Indeed, ignoring the insanity of an open decked ship in the vacuum of space, one can't help but think the romance of a feline captain and a scientist with canine origins is a little more than disturbing. Yet this is Disney, and all is pure and good when it comes to cross breeding of two species.
Seriously, Treasure Planet is an enjoyable romp through Stevenson's original classic, and while purists may have palpitations at the liberties that have been taken with the source material, the bottom line is that it is a thoroughly enjoyable family film. Martin Short's portrayal of B.E.N., a robot with a short circuit, is hilarious and recalls memories of Robin Williams turn as the Genie in Aladdin.

3.0 out of 5 stars What the hell were they smoking? Dec 31 2003
Format:DVD
Somebody over at Disney needs to put down the crack pipe - you can't stick model rocket engines on a 16th-century spanish galleon and expect it to travel across the galaxy in 20 seconds. This movie's whole production design was so incredibly ass-backwards, it made my head spin. It's sad really, because the story is a damn good one, and this movie had a lot of potential. If those stoners at Disney had been spending less time taking acid trips to outer space, they would have done the reasonable thing: make realistic-looking spaceships and settings like in Titan A.E., and at least pay attention to whatever laws of physics you know about when you're sober. Instead, we get the most warped unreality ever seen on the big screen: There's breathable air in space, and the ship is rocket-powered, meaning that traditional sails would slow the ship down - so, of course, this ship keeps its sails unfurled at all times. Excuse me, but what team of clown-college flunkies decided that this would be a cool idea?
My advice? Either read Treasure Island, or watch a movie that doesn't insult your intelligence. This one makes Jimmy Neutron look like Shakespear.

Treasure Planet is a big budget impressive looking Disney movie that bombed at the box office. And that's a pity as there's a great little animated movie in there. Read more
