A great movie, but not exceptional.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Atlantis: The Lost Empire -- Two-Disc Collector's Edition [DVD]  (DVD)
Atlantis continues the recent trend of unconventional animated movies (which began with The Emperors' new groove, which by the way is hilarious and if you don't own it you'd better have a good reason) with Atlantis. It is a really good movie with a great voice cast; Michael J. Fox is perfect as the slightly nerdy hero, James Garner is a great villain and Don Novello is, at times, hilarious. This movie is like a comic book come to life, and even though parts of the story are a little sketchy, and the dialouge sometimes too fast or unclear, the animation is breath taking and the movie very enjoyable
It contains no songs, which is a good thing because even though Disney songs are usually great, they would be out of place in an action adventure movie such as this. Don't expect a cutesy fluffy bunny movie, but top-notch special effects action sequences. One thing which really annoyed me was a character called Mole. I hate him, and without him, or if his character was less zany, I probably would have given this movie five stars.
A departure for a Disney film, but well carried. A definate must-see.
