Animated - A rarity for American movies -- a science fiction animated film,
Titan A.E. is designed to appeal to everyone in the family:
kids, teenagers, and adults. Although not an unqualified success, it
mostly succeeds in this goal.
PROFANITY: None. SEX/NUDITY: A quick flash of animated nudity, and a little sensuality. VIOLENCE: Animated fight scenes (with blood). DRUGS/ALCOHOL: None. ACTION: Fights, chases, and spaceship dogfights. COMEDY: Occasional quips.
Titan A. E. represents an ambitious attempt by co-directors Don Bluth and Gary Goldman to fuse traditional animated techniques with the latest in computer graphics, and to present it all through a plot that owes more to Japanese anime than to classic Disney. The result is a mixed bag, characterized by some obvious high points and equally apparent flaws. Nevertheless, taken as a whole, Titan A. E. is an engaging experience that tops Dinosaur for the best animated adventure to reach theaters thus far this year.
The year is 3028. Mankind has conquered space, and even though it was routine to travel to the farthest galaxies, humans always thought that Earth would be home. However, with mankind's new freedom comes new enemies, forcing Earth to prepare for an attack by the Drej, a vicious alien race.
In little more than an instant, Earth is gone. The human race barely escapes with its greatest treasure, a magnificent ship christened the Titan.
