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.

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.

Let me start off by saying that Titan A.E. is a 'marmite' movie - you'll either love it, or hate it with a passion. Released in 2000, and directed by Don Bluth and Gary Goldman, it was also the last film produced by Fox Animation Studios before their closure.

It is the year 3028 and mankind has made a powerful enemy, an advanced alien race known as the Drej, who fear what we have the potential to become and are on the verge of annihilating the human race.

The movie follows the story of a young boy, Cale Tucker (Matt Damon), whose father Sam (Ron Perlman) is a scientist working on a project to build a fantastic spaceship, the Titan, which has the ability to terraform an entire planet to serve as a new home should earth ever be destroyed, and is humanity's last hope for a home, and survival, in a universe where Earthlings are seen as little more than vermin. When the Drej attack and destroy Earth, the Titan barely escapes and the few survivors are left scattered across the galaxy, finding work and refuge wherever they can.

15 years later, Cale is working in a galactic scrap yard when he encounters a ship, the Valkyrie, and it's crew; Korso, the ships' Captain (Bill Pullman), first mate Preed (Nathan Lane), pilot Akima (Drew Barrymore), weapons and combat expert Stith (Janeane Garofalo), and scientist Gune (John Leguizamo) and together they head off to find the Titan and use it to create a new home for mankind (with the Drej in hot pursuit, of course). A couple of the scenes may not be suitable for really young kids, (for example in one fight sequence a character gets put into a headlock and has their neck broken) but this is kept to one or two exceptions, rather than being the rule.
