This is a genius of an idea! Not only can you experience the fantastic animated movie of Treasure Planet (a sea-faring adventure in the classic mould, yet set in space where the galleons are solar-powered and the whirlpools are black holes, itself ingenius) but you get a decent game (its a strategy featuring the aforementioned galleons and is satisfyingly gripping in terms of playability). And to top it off you get the classic novel of Treasure Island, on which the film is based, allowing you to spot all the clever references (my favourite is the Benbow Inn). An absolute must for any fan of the story, the film, strategy games or just great film-making in general! A complete package of brilliance!

I cant belive some of the comments above, I loved this film! My son who is 7 rented it from the video shop and I have to admit that I thought it would be rubbish, but I enjoyed this far more than "A Bug Life". I thought the story line was great and the animation wonderful. Highly recommended!!

Young Jim Hawkins (voice by Joseph Gordon-Levitt) grew up reading about pirates, and dreaming of finding the fabulous lost treasure of Captain Flint, the greatest pirate ever. When a dying sailor gives Jim a special "map", Jim and family friend Doctor Doppler (David Hyde Pierce) set off to find it. But, the crew of their ship looks more than a little bit untrustworthy, and none of them more so than the cook, John Silver (Brian Murray). Sailing through mind-blowing dangers, Jim encounters more adventures than he could ever have imagined, and finds a treasure more valuable than gold.
I must admit that I did not see this movie in the theatre; I was that sure that it was going to be a bad movie. Well, I am kicking myself now! This movie is great! The combination of eighteenth century pirates and technology was handled masterfully, and it produces an exciting and visually breathtaking movie! Am I gushing about this movie? You bet I am! This is a great movie that you and your children will all love. (My kids thought that Morph was the best part of the whole movie.) Get it!

I simply don't understand why this film failed at the box office. It's an instant classic and a great re-working of the original story.
What I really liked was the complete fantasy about it - there was no explanation of why some things worked - like the R.L.S Legacy (good reference!) - and what on earth there were whales doing floating about in space...
The film is just the right length - my kids love it. The music score was genius. You won't regret buying this film!

How many times Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel has been made a film of I don’t know, but I do know that only one good version of it truly existed ( the 1990 version with Charlton Heston as Silver), until this Disney came out…
I was sure, due to the hoards of rotten reviews and the few clips I had seen in adds and Jonathan Ross’ film hour that this one wasn’t going to be an exception. What I saw were mediocre gags and lousy combining of CG-animation with traditional… well, animation fan as I am, I still was compelled to buy the feature, and how wrong I was to doubt it:
Set in the distant future, Stevenson’s Atlantic ocean is replaced by the vast Atherium, a sort of outer space where you can breath, and the Caribbean islands are replaced by planets, stars and galaxies ( This might explain the whales flying around in it – to answer another reviewer’s question?). The original 70/30 look designed by the Disney staff is marvellous, where they keep everything 70% traditional and 17th century looking, but add just that 30% of sci-fi to it, and sure to throw you right into the exciting world of Jim Hawkins.
This problem child is too wild at heart for the suffocating life at his mother’s inn. He seeks adventure where he can find it, and this usually comes hand in hand with trouble…
His life changes when Billy Bones, an old drink-rotten pirate crashes near the inn and with his last breath hands over to the boy an odd golden sphere. Suddenly they find the inn attacked and narrowly make it to safety.

I've always enjoyed this film, and what makes it good is that it centres on how it must feel to grow up without a parent. Fifteen year old Jim Hawkins just so happens to have no father, and this makes it hard for his mother to teach him anything, and also proves that it really is a bad thing to be bereft of a male role model which is what Jim really needs. Good at getting himself into trouble and a cool dude, he must contend with robotic policemen, until he finds that he's in for a treat much later when pirate Billy Bones leaves an orb shaped map in Jim's possession. To Jim's delight, the map soon turns out to contain the entire solar system, and the fabled Treasure Planet. This discovery sparks the interest of astrophysicist Dr. Delbert Doppler who is half man, half dog, and the two of them later land on the space port which makes up the moon. As soon as they board the RLS Legacy (great name!) Jim has to watch himself as a gang of pirates make up the crew, and slowly but gradually he makes friends with the cook, Long John Silver, and Morph, a cute pink blob with goggly eyes that can take on lots of different appearances. Emma Thompson provides witty humour as feline Captain Amelia, and works very well as an animated character in comparison to her many other characters from unanimated films. It's all high rides, adventure and fun, and incredibly entertaining. I think the Special Features are really cool, and some of it is really interesting, like the making of the film and the magic of Disney animation, particularly in this film as it's an incredibly popular story and Robert Louis Stevenson is a very well known author. Then there's the more technical stuff, such as a look into how Silver's cyborg eye, robotic arm and peg leg were put into animation, which is pretty fantastic.Read more ›
