It's got cool spaceships, spacewhales, giant mushrooms on secret planets - this is a movie designed for me as a kid, and apparently me as an adult as well. Loved it. It also has a cool little father/son plot, which I enjoyed. Getting soft in my old age.
Fantastic movie. Absolutely holds up and the graphics actually shocked me with how good they were for the time. I'm sure I'm echoing what a lot of people have said, but I only write this to add to that point. Give it another watch for a nice nostalgic night.
So underrated! Granted, the idea of taking the story of Treasure Island, and dragging it into a futuristic setting is a rather weird one, but they manage to take this odd sounding concept and do something inventive with it.
The bromance between Jim Hawkins and John Silver is interesting and charming, the visuals are frequently mesmerizing and the film features a fine mix of new and old ideas. But it has too much action, it is badly paced and the supporting characters are not as memorable. It was also influenced by Star Wars a bit too much. So Treasure Planet is in the end a solid and admirable sci-fi effort, but a very flawed one indeed.
