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.

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

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

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.

I think kids will find it really entertaining, and parents will find it amusing enough.

There's enough meaty plot and character left beneath the fancy effects to make watching the film a satisfying experience.

It just may inspire a few younger moviegoers to read Stevenson's book, which is a treasure in and of itself.

One of the most gorgeous Disney films ever.

Enjoy the spectacle.

It's all quite vividly imagined, down to the tiniest details.

Despite more betrayal and loyalty than a Chris Carabba box set, there's no real good or evil here.

'Treasure Plane' starts with the clever idea of transforming the story into an old-fashioned space opera, and the animated visuals are handily up to the studio's best. Yet the film's total appeal may be undercut by a script that rarely feels inspired.

Treasure Planet doesn't have the charm of Disney's last homegrown release, Lilo & Stitch, or the dazzling artistry of Spirited Away. But it's a capable and diverting holiday season adventure for a family audience.

Don't look for gravity-bound logic here. This is cartoon fantasy, not a literal translation, although in its way it stays pretty close to Stevenson's characters and storyline.
November 27, 2002
It's a pleasant enough way to mark time, which is exactly what the rest of the Disney crew is doing -- until inspiration, like a beam from the far end of the galaxy, strikes again.
November 27, 2002
When the Disney people go after your holiday dollar, they don't leave anything in the paint box.
November 27, 2002
Sci-fi meets sea-faring fantasy, and the mix isn't half bad.
November 27, 2002
Has its moments, but it's pretty far from a treasure.
November 27, 2002
Better than OK, but no Spirited Away.
