For anyone who grew up on Disney's 1950 Treasure Island, or remembers the 1934 Victor Fleming classic, this one feels like an impostor.

Disney's animated pirate tale has masterful visuals -- and an amateur's script.

This might please the 8 year-olds, but more discerning fans of animation, and adventure are likely to be disappointed with how slack and tedious this latest Disney offering is.

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

Sucking all the 'classic' out of Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island and filling the void with sci-fi video game graphics and Disney-fied adolescent angst...

Visually rather stunning, but ultimately a handsome-looking bore, the true creativity would have been to hide Treasure Planet entirely and completely reimagine it.

The film failed to be imaginative enough.

Movie Metropolis

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.

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 adventures that youngsters act out on the french fry-littered seats of the family minivan will surely be more exciting, and more imaginative, than the film itself.

Looking Closer

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?

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]

There is nothing in Treasure Planet we haven't seen in recent animated efforts such as "Titan AE" and Disney's own "Atlantis: The Lost Empire" . . .

Treasure Planet is a handsome picture, with lots of nifty borrowings from the Star Wars galaxy, but it's never particularly compelling as a story or as a vehicle for emotions.

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

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

Treasure Island may be a much-loved story, but you would never know it from viewing the uninspired castration that is Treasure Planet.

Akin to an extremely well-made Saturday morning cartoon -- great for hyperactive four-year-olds or hungover students, not worth a trip to the pictures.
