7/10: Titan A.E
Thursday, January 23, 2014

I had heard the title of this animated film a few times, I knew it was a space movie of some sort, but I didn't anything about the stars providing their voices, the plot or story, or that it was from animation director Don Bluth (An American Tail, The Land Before Time) and co- director Gary Goldman (Anastacia). Basically the year 3028 A.D. humanity has interacted with several species of aliens from across the galaxy and mastered deep space travel, but an antagonist alien race called the Drej are alarmed by a human invention called "Project Titan", they attack, Earth is close to destruction, so the project lead researcher Professor Sam Tucker (Ron Perlman) puts his young son Cale (Home Alone 3's Alex D. Linz) on an evacuation ship with his alien friend Tek, while the father and other team members fly the Titan spacecraft into hyperspace. Following the destruction of Earth most surviving humans have become...

7/10: Worth seeing, but you have to see it in a theater

Titan A.E. has probably the most amazing looking visuals ever put to film. The computer animation and the cell animation were godly. The sound effects were also very good. But then we get the story. It is okay, if a bit formulaic, throughout the first hour. The characters aren't anyone we haven't met before, but mostly they aren't awful. The only characters who were awful were the three aliens on the space ship. They were horribly annoying, and very unfunny. Their character design was really bad, too.SPOILERSThe thing that really ruined this movie for me was the completely unnecessary and silly betrayal of one of the characters. A character completely changes for no reason whatsoever. It is unbelievable, and it made me cringe. And what is more, there is a second betrayal that is even more silly! Also, there was a continuity problem throughout the picture. Often, a character would appear somewhere where he was...

1/10: I would have deleted it

Let's get to the point. The animation is good, but the script is terrible. I don't care for the opening scene because it is a hodgepodge of BS which doesn't make any sense. It also doesn't make sense about how the script and the animation don't go together. Technically if you wanted to blow up the Earth in that manner it would take a far bigger alien ship and the destruction wouldn't have happened that quickly. Sure the aliens are pure energy, then why do they have a form? Why did the humans, who have some sort of global defense system wait until the aliens were right on top of them to leave? You must have known they were coming by the time they entered the solar system, even at the speed of light they would take roughly 5 hours to reach Earth.The animation is good, it is a mix of old school...

4/10: Titan Turn-It-Off
Thursday, July 2, 2015

Titan A.E. (2000): Dir: Don Bluth, Gary Goldman / Voices: Matt Damon, Drew Barrymore, Bill Pullman, Janeane Garofalo, Ron Perlman: From the makers of Anastasia comes a plot about something we often take for granted; our existence. The human race is vanquished with few survivors. The hero is a teenager whose father was killed by an alien race formed of mass energy. He is left only with a ring that has peculiar power. It reveals a map leading to where his father hid the Titan. Together with his human allies and mutant companions they board a trade ship thus beginning a dangerous adventure. Detailed and inventive animation from Don Bluth and Gary Goldman who also made All Dogs Go To Heaven. Matt Damon voices the hero who is thrown into a new responsibility and must prove himself for his family legacy. Drew Barrymore provides the voice for his female companion who is pretty much a romantic prop and nothing else...

7/10: Good animated entertainment; not as good as I remember it
Monday, June 19, 2000

RE-EDIT:: I recall I wrote this line in a review for Titan AE back when it first came out: "I love films that add or have computer animation (especially when the film itself is animated)...Great stuff here to see. For any one, kid, animation lover, etc." Comments like these should make me put a paper bag over my head in shame for their ineptitude and naiveté, and my only excuse was that I didn't know much better. Seeing the film again, I'm still impressed by a good lot of the animation, and the story still works almost in spite of the very thin story. The voice work is also top-notch, which helps, especially with an unlikely villain in Nathan Lane. Unfortunately, it's nowhere near the level of quality and artistry that Don Bluth had with his 80s movies, and if it is his last movie as director it wouldn't quite be the best...
