Movie Reviews

This boat barely floats.

"Ouch. I should have read the reviews before forking over the dough. I had no choice, really - the kids found it at the grocery store check-out. The kids liked it - they didn't notice that the animation was no better than 1960's Hanna-Barberra cartoons and that the story was 3 stories awkwardly stitched together. If you liked the moral theme of Atlantis, don't ruin it with this dumbed-down cartoony follow-up. The orignal Atlantis was a visually stunning masterpiece of animation almost in the league of The Lion King and Fantasia. This DVD is not nearly worthy of the Disney name ..."
Three Tales Tied Loosely Together

"Considering that this "movie" is actually a combination of three stories originally produced for an "Atlantis" cartoon that never came to fruition, I find it to be unfair to judge these adventures as one whole. Instead, I'll give a brief review of each of the three adventures and then summarize the entire movie.

First off, we have Milo, Kida and the gang tackling the mighty Kraken. No, it isn't the Kraken you may remember from "Clash Of The Titans," but a sea-dwelling demon who wreaks havoc in the seas and possesses a small village. The story is probably the best of the three. It is quickly paced and has pretty good development.

The second story is rather boring. It takes place in the American Southwest. A band of "dust coyote spirits" have attacked one of the locals who happens to have found some ancient pottery. Milo's team has to figure out why the "coyotes" are attacking the locals and put a stop to them. The ending of the tale is rather brilliant, but not enough to save this chapter of the entire film.

The final story nods its hat toward Norse mythology. It features a man wanting to destroy the current world and rule over a newer, better one. Of course, he can't do this as a mere mortal, so he uses a spear that is magically inclined and becomes "Odin." If you know anything about Norse mythology, you know that Odin is similar to Zeus, only he rules the cold north. Once again, Milo and his crew have to save the day.

So what ties all of these little adventures together? Atlantis, of course. Using a mythology that ties just about every culture together, we find through these three tales that Atlantis is the center of the cultural universe. In other words, all gods come from Atlantis, and their powers are all knowing and all caring when placed into the hands of the right individuals. It looks like Kida and Milo and his team are the folks intended to control all of this power.

These tales aren't as horrible as others have stated. They just have to be looked at as individual stories and I'm sure you'll get more enjoyment out of them. If you have young sons in your family, they'll probably get the most enjoyment out of this movie. Much like its predecessor, it relies on mythology and technology to move the story along. Those are two things that keep small children(8 and under)from getting to interested in this movie.

In all honesty, I'd rent this before buying it. If your kids enjoy it, then you may consider investing in it."
Whoever wrote this movie should quit the film industry!

"I don't expect much from Disney's straight-to-video sequels, but this one has simply got to be the worst of them all. First off, this film has absolutely NOTHING to do with the city of Atlantis. Instead, it focuses on three separate and unrelated "mysteries" that have an eerie resemblance to episodes of Scooby Doo. All the characters return and Kida decides to see what it's like on the surface. She's supposed to go and help, but all she does is dally around being stupid. Her involvement has nothing to do with the movie until the end. This movie is only a mere 80-minutes, but after the first 45, I was ready for this film to end. Bottom line, it's hard to believe that the writers at Disney Television can lack the imagination and creativity to make a movie that's even a little bit worthwhile. I seriously could've come up with a better story....one that's about Atlantis! Avoid this at all costs!!"
