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

I was skeptical, too, at first. I thought the trailer looked horrid, and it was. It showed nothing of the actual depth and heart of this movie, choosing instead to market itself as strictly a "boys" movie--a "kewl," empty, CGI-chocked, video game. And that's a shame because nothing could be further from the truth. It's a real film with a genuine story.

I'm glad my family and I took a chance and bought this. The design-work is original and beautiful, the story is a classic coming of age, and the acting is top-notch. The relationships between the characters is outstanding. David Hyde Pierce is hilarious as Delbert Doppler, and the chemistry he has with Emma Thompson as Captain Amelia is superb. Brian Murray should have won a Best Actor Oscar for his deep and nuanced performance as John Silver. His relationship with Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Jim Hawkins is truly heartfelt and amazing. That this film failed at the box office is a tragedy; that it lost its Best Animated Picture nomination to the overrated and nonsensical "Spirited Away" is a travesty.

The one weak link in the movie is the character of B.E.N., but the robot with a screw loose is meant to be loud, annoying, and irritating. After all, he's the equivalent of crazy Ben from the book this movie is adapted from, so what can you do? Martin Short does the best he can with a character cast from the same mold as Jar Jar Binks and by the end of the film he actually ends up being likeable. Just barely.

So ignore the naysayers and their unreasonable reasons for not liking this film. Yes, Treasure Planet is a sci-fi adaptation of Treasure Island. So what? That's an innovative idea. I wish someone would make a futuristic version of Sherlock Holmes; they already made a modernized one to great success.

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.

This movie is almost too alternative to be Disney. This is a total steampunk offering, which is true to the spirit of RL Stevenson, if not the literal details of the original book. I also think that attempting to turn the novel now into a children's movie would be a failure - in a culture now immersed in the Pirate's franchise, the classic tale would come off as a poor cousin, with no ghosts or magic to its name.

This is one of the few Disney movies with strong males, in various moral shades from the youthful, rebellious hero to the very grey almost-villain. My kids love this movie - all four of them, two girls and two boys. The adventure is far more exciting than most North American animation, and unlike the truly atrocious Atlantis movie, the plot and dialogue are clearly comprehensible, and the characters are engaging.

I'm a fan of most Disney movies, but when previews for Treasure Planet first came out, I raised my eyebrows and decided that this one was a miss.

A friend got me to watch this this past year, and surprisiningly, I loved it.

At its surface, Treasure Planet is about a teenaged boy with a dream to find the famed treasure of a thousand worlds from an infamous pirate, Treasure Planet.
At its heart, Treasure Planet is about a boy who wants to become a man, but has no one to guide him. The guide turns out to be Silver, the cook on the ship with plans to mutiny and steal all the treasure for himself.

Treasure Planet appeals to both boys and girls as a lot of young boys can much more easily relate to a male hero, and the plot itself appeals to both. Boys understand the confusion in the transition from a boy to a man, and girls can appreciate the father son relationship that Jim and Silver form.

I won't spoil the ending, but it was very satisfying. :)

The characters were all very satisfying, especially Jimmy, who I felt had more development and depth as a character than most Disney protagonists.

A wonderful and unappreciated family film, this will delight all ages and both sexes, and is definitely NOT a miss in anyone's movie collection.
