Titan A.E. is a unique movie with creative animation -- it's just too bad it isn't better. This movie hasn't aged well and it wasn't that great to start with. I think they were banking on the star-studded cast to draw people in. It's not a bad movie, though. It's just mediocre.

Like Star Wars, minus the developed characters, special effects, interesting plot, or dramatic twists. It's funny that they named the main character, 'Cale' after a vegetable, cause he's about as interesting as one.

It was OK. Not the best, but far from the worst.

"Titan A.E." has an impressive blend of hand-drawn and CGI animation that manages to be beautiful to look at. However, all of that flash does not compensate for that this sci-fi animated adventure is derivative of many superior sci-fi films.

I love the way this movie combines the traditional with new techniques.
The script is well used, coming of age but the voices are good.
In a nutshell, loved it!

Good animated Star Wars-like movie. Somehow thought the plot was more interesting than Episode I. How could that be? I think it wasn't that it had any superior elements, but it WAS good and didn't have INFERIOR elements (like Jar Jar and Jake Lloyd) slowing it down.

Really enjoyed this movie.

This film kind of reminded of Treasure Planet. Its an underrated sci fi adventure that is not perfect, but very entertaining. There are two spectacular chase scenes, even if the story is a bit derivative. Its worth a viewing for animation fans, even with that horrendously outdated soundtrack.

Don Bluth at his best.

Interesting premise handled in a juvenile fashion. A nice attempt at CGI for it's time. I would love to see Whedon revisit this movie as well.

Another masterpiece by animation genius Don Bluth.

A wrongfully maligned masterpiece directed by one of animation's titans (pun totally intended).

It's ok...
First of all, the animation is very nice. It blends cgi and regular animation well. Plus its just nicely put together even though some of the movements are a bit weird.
The beginning of the movie is the best part. It's emotional and well made.
They do have good voice acting too. The captain especially.
However (ALL) the characters are either boring, trying too hard to be quirky, or unlikeable. And that's a problem. They also waste an OK plot. While it does work, the plot feels like an excuse to try out creative ideas and then mix it with boringness and bad pacing.
And the soundtrack is awful. It's just awful.
To sum it up, they took good animation and a good cast and wasted it on an OK plot, bad characters, and an annoying soundtrack. :(

I'm a sucker for anything by animators Don Bluth and Gary Goldman. This was their last film, but they've apparently been working on a film version of "Dragon's Lair" that's supposed to come out eventually. When this film was made, the script had apparently been handed around different writers for some time, but a couple of those writer are pretty cool in my book, with Buffy and Angel alumni Joss Whedon and Ben Edlund and also "Go" screenwriter, John August. Originally planned as a live action film, the story involves earth being destroyed by aliens and those few human who escaped now living as second class citizens, scattered across the universe. Matt Damon voices the lead character, a young man who crusty spaceship captain Bill Pullman needs in order to find a lost ship Damon's father launched into space the contains everything needed to create another earth. Other voice actors include John Leguizamo, Nathan Lane, Janeane Garofalo and Drew Barrymore. The film uses a mix of traditional animations, which is great, and computer animation, which now looks very dated and actually looks terrible. The bad computer animation really drags the film down, but the story and characters are interesting and the hand drawn animation are enough to make this a solidly entertaining film.

Titan A.E. definitely lacks identity as it is somewhat derivative, the score is so annoying, the characters are far from memorable and the action is certainly overwhelming, but the world building is great, the sound effects are terrific, the scenery is memorable and the film is so engaging and at times even touching. But the standout aspect here is the animation which is just breathtaking in its great mix of hand-drawn and CGI. In the end, it is a flawed, but quite underrated animated sci-fi flick.
