Fifteen years after the planet Earth has been destroyed by the dreaded Drej, there emerges a young hero named Cale, the bearer of a genetically-encoded map which shows the way to the Titan, a mysterious spaceship which has long held the promise of a new beginning for the human race. Accompanied by his sidekick Akima, Cale heads for New Bangkok and the beginnings of the adventure which will take him towards the Titan and the final showdown with the evil Drej. Co-directed by veteran animator Don Bluth ('The Secret of Nimh', 'An American Tail'), this sci-fi spectacular features a star-studded voice cast, including the likes of Matt Damon, Bill Pullman and Drew Barrymore.

Titan AE is one of the best non-Japanese animated movies I've seen in a long time. With a rousing soundtrack, some excellent choices as voice-actors, and well put together set-piece scenes, it's a highly enjoyable romp.
The plot is nothing particularly complicated, but then the film doesn't really claim to be anything other than a shallow but action packed extravaganza. The Drej are very well portrayed as an unsympathetic and seemingly invincible alien race, while you do get a proper sense of the impending doom of the human race after the destruction of earth (which is a great opening scene).
The film occasionally seems to find it difficult to decide whether it's aimed at adults or kids, leading to situations where you wish it hadn't pulled its punches at crucial moments, but generally doesn't slip into implausible sentimentality like many Hollywood movies do.
There are a couple of plot twists, but nothing too unpredictable, and while it's not a film you'll remember for a long time, it's certainly a fun way to spend a couple of hours. It doesn't even come close to the quality of any of the top anime movies from Japan, but certainly the best stab that Hollywood has had at a more adult animated feature. Well worth a view.

Previous to watching this dvd I had heard many negative reviews from critics, but the trailers looked so good i had to watch it. I was definitely not disappointed. The graphics in this film were amazing,with a cleverly combined mixture of both 3D and 2D effects, to produce a stunning look to both the characters and backgrounds.The story wasn't the most complex but I still enjoyed it immensly. There were some very funny moments alongside the serious, the romantic, the exciting and the moving. In how many films will you get to see an alien shout 'who's the daddy!!'. The soundtrack is extremely good and complimented the film perfectly, making me want to buy it as soon as I saw the film. So for anyone who is thinking of buying Titan A.E, BUY IT, you wont regret it.

This is an absolutely cracking film for both kids and adults alike, I have to say it is one of the best I have ever had the pleasure of watching with my 8 year old brother. He constantly begs for it to be put on again and again and watches it with his mates who are also mesmerized by its fantastic storyline and stunning visuals. The characters are brilliant, the plotline compelling and the soundtrack... well, what can I say.. its absolutely stunning. And thats just the movie... add this to an excellent DVD package, featuring tonnes of cool extras, and you have one of the best entertainment packages around.

For a studio unknown for supporting and creating animated films, this time they created one of the most enjoyable science fiction animated movies in years.
A typical space action adventure for both the Star Wars and Star Trek generations, this movie will delight fans of both and is great fun for kids and adults alike.
The basic story centres around Cale, a young boy who was forced to leave the Earth when it was attacked and destroyed by an alien race called the Drej.
Humans have now become outcasts in the universe and regarded by aliens as second class citizens. Cale is 'rescued' from his life as a slavage worker by Korso, captain of the Valkyrie, who says that he is very important to the future of humanity and that he is the only key to finding the ship that Cale's father built, The Titan. He is propelled into an adventure that crosses the galaxy and back, with the Drej hot on his tail in search of the Titan.
The film has all the elements of a classic sci-fi movie; great locations, space battles, adventure, aliens, comedy and an evil species determined to exterminate the entire human race.
The animation is first rate, a mix of traditional hand painted cells and CGI giving a rich and clean image for the film. Some elements are almost photo-real, making you forget that this is an animated feature.
The characters are all well realised and voiced with talent by the likes of Bill Pullman, Nathan Lane, Drew Barrimore, Matt Damon and many others. The interplay between Korso's crew is well written, full of humour (especially the guard sequence on the Soros!) and fun.
There are some truly spectacular moments in the movie including when the Earth is detroyed and the amazing fight in the ice fields of Tigrin - a worthy successor to the classic Battle Of The Mutara Nebula in Star Trek II.
All in all, Titan A.E. is one of the best animated sci-fi films in the last decade and well worth a look.

Titan A.E. is a bit different in its approach to animation in that it combines traditional 2d animation and cgi which is done to great effect.

The style of the animation is a little 'Akira'ish which is a compliment.

Don Bluth, a great animator - going back to the Disney days with Frank Thomas, Ollie Johnston and the like.

Great movie.

I bought this on sale, not expecting much more than little over an hour of no-brain fun. But what a suprise I got. The visuals in this cartoon/film was at a level that could easily match Disney-stuff like the Lion King or even match Shrek. The mix of objects made entirely on computer and the ones containing some 'old-fashioned' cartooning ( the characters, for instance) works successfully. The scenes in the Ring of Ice, were especially great, and the mothers of some graphic-nerds must be very proud.
The story line, even though it's very classic, works. Safe the human race from the hands of those terrible, spooky alien monsters. But it works.
Fun characters. You could expect some overfun character who's job is to destroy the plot and seriousness of the film (like Jaa-Jaa in Star Wars, throw that dude in the garbage, please). In TITAN A.E. there is a couple of goof-balls, but they have a purpose and some abilities. And they are neatly put in the background. Again it works 100%
Thanks to all who made this film...
BTW: the famous voices doesn't really matter. Sure it's some cool actors like Matt Damon and Demi Moore, but seriously, folks, it doesn't really matter that much :)
