The world's most highly qualified crew of archaeologists and explorers is led by historian Milo Thatch as they board the incredible 1,000-foot submarine Ulysses and head deep into the mysteries of the sea. The underwater expedition takes an unexpected turn when the team's mission must switch from exploring Atlantis to protecting it.
You won't be disappointed!
If the ambition is to provide two hours of instantly forgettable, popcorn-munching escapism, it succeeds.
This is a coming of age storyline that you've seen in one form or another for decades. It takes a truly unique voice to make yet another one worth watching.
The acting in this movie is really good.
Beautifull 2D animation, good story! Great adventure! Not 'wauw' but don't prices it won are well earned!
I watched Atlantis a lot when I was a kid and liked back then. To this day I do not love it, but view it as a mostly successful step from Disney away from their usual song-driven fairy tales. When I say mostly, it is because of the Atlantian mythology and their language and gadgets created for the movie are inventive and well done while the supporting characters and their development through the movie is a little lacking. Milo is a likable main character and Kida is also memorable. It's just the crew members i am pointing out.Characters like Mole is really annoying and seems pointless, but that's the only really bad thing about Atlantis. The crew members feel rushed in when they meet Milo and are not overly memorable. The smoking lady and Vinny are exceptions. Despite the villain, Rourke, being one of Disney's weaker villains, I find his arguments with Milo and the battle between them in the climax of the movie good and well executed. And he has one of the craziest deaths in the Disney catalog. The action scenes are in general pretty awesome.Atlantis is overall recommendable, but it is not the typical Disney flick. Therefore I will call it a gamble if you like it or not. I like in spite of its weak spots.
Whether you love or hate this film, no one can deny the hard work put into it. For starters, it inspired a new language - Atlantean. The animation is also very good (and one of Disney's last to be animated in its classic form before the horrible Chicken Little came along).The characters certainly are easy to engage with, especially the main protagonist Milo who is adorkable and a hard worker. Atlantis TLE is also one of the most original story lines Disney has ever come up with for a while too. It's also very much action-packed and has some humour to.A couple of criticisms I have is that I felt a little bit bored at times so I guess the plot isn't completely solid and the comedy side of it came off as quite gimmicky sometimes (mostly derived by Mole's character). Overall, Atlantis is not the greatest Disney film ever but it certainly is worth a watch and greatly under appreciated.
Atlantis: The Lost Empire is one of those gems I ran into while browsing Netflix. I remember watching it when I was younger but not appreciating it the way I do now. The movie is about Milo, a linguist who hopes to finish his grandfathers work and find the lost city of Atlantis.The film is fun for kids but personally I think it's even more entreating for ages 10+. There's diversity and more action then you would see in a regular Disney animated film. And yes I did say that right, it's a Disney film. You won't hear one song in this movie but you don't need to with all of the beautiful work thats put on screen. The way the makers of this movie create the city of Atlantis is unique and beautiful to look at and you will be glued to the screen to learn more about this lost city. I would like to say that if you've watched this film in the past and you're debating on if you should have a re-watch, do it. Because for me this film was more enjoyable once I became an adult and the same can go for you. Lastly, this film is great for kids. It shows them a strong female lead and can really enrich their imagination. Don't miss out on this great and one of a kind movie. 10/10
