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.
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.
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 :)
