Treasure Planet Reviews

Creative Loafing

The addition of an insufferable robot named B.E.N. (Martin Short) cripples much of the film's momentum and renders many of the latter scenes unwatchable (a friend once dubbed B.E.N. "the Jar-Jar Binks of animation," and she was absolutely right).

Given the amazing artwork, if a better character [than a cyborg John Silver] had been inserted, we'd be talking about "Treasure Planet" as another Disney classic.

The awkward trappings of this Disney adventure mechanize and blunt the tale's humanity. It pops and squeaks and rumbles, but Treasure Planet lacks the strength to transport audiences. [Blu-ray]

Like stepping forth, in an explosion of colors, weird body shapes and bad comedy, into somebody else's migraine.

By following its story as closely as they have, the filmmakers have retained much of what made the novel a classic.

It's laced with literate humor, and the directors cite N.C. Wyeth's illustrations for the 1911 Scribner's edition of Treasure Island as the inspiration for their marvelously detailed fantasy world.

Inspired visuals and fluid animation, even blown up on IMAX, weren't enough to prevent me from being bored out of my skull.

While Pixar can do no wrong with its cutting edge CGI originals, Disney is falling back on old formulas

Hey mom, I went to another planet and found money for you to buy back the family farm. Sure, I blew up the planet in the process, but aren't you proud of me?

There is almost no coherence to the plot points, leaving another technically sound but disposable product that awaits its straight-to-video sequel.

Esta curiosa releitura do clássico de Robert Louis Stevenson conta com um visual impressionante e boas seqüências de ação. Ainda assim, está longe de se equiparar aos grandes clássicos da Disney.

It's not one of Disney's greatest, but it's solid entertainment.

This is Disney animation at its best: a witty and swashbuckling tale of adventure.

In attempting to update the novel, Disney filmmakers have dulled the characterizations and dialogue and given us instead a lovely series of picture postcards from outer space.

Without the pizzazz of computer animation you can see how it will struggle to find its target audience.

Disney guarantees a certain standard of entertainment that will doubtless satisfy several hundred thousand families.
