| Story doesn't matter - What a journey!
After reading a number of negative reviews of this film, I went ahead and bought the DVD. I had read that, although the movie was mediocre, it was the kind of film that's great for showing off your DVD player.

I am thrilled to own this movie.

True enough, the story is cliched. Yet I didn't think about it for a second while I watched the film unfold. I was completely caught up in everything I saw on the screen. If it was a slow scene, I just gazed at the beautiful eye candy. And during the incredibly inventive action scenes, I was surprised to find myself at the edge of my seat.

There are some who say that the mix of 3d and traditional 2d animation didn't work. I couldn't disagree more. There are times when the two styles were a glaring contrast. Yet, as the movie progressed, the two became as one to my eyes. I have no problem calling this a revolutionary step forward in animation.

I loved A Bug's Life and Toy Story. But this trip, in my eyes blew those films away.

Finally, though I wouldn't consider this film 'adult' by any means, the slighter darker tone made it much more accessible as an adult viewer. Every year I sigh when I see a preview for another assembly line Disney film. (Hey, let's dumb down the gothic horror 'The Hunchback of Notre Dame' and give him cute sidekicks!) The look of Disney films hasn't changed in years. (If anything, they look more simple) This film, as cliched as the story was, was visually inspired.

The original Fantasia needed no story. It was an appreciation of music and animation. Let this be the new Fantasia. If you want to experience breathtaking and beautiful animation, I couldn't recommend this any more.

Trivia

Mary Gross was considered for the role of Akima.


Quotes

Akima: Should I get out and push?


Goofs

(at around 1h 5 mins) During the chase scene in Tigrin Ice rings, when Akima says the line "I can't move they'll see us", her hand is grasping the ship's controls in her left hand but they are missing from the CG set.


Crazy Credits

The credits for the lead actors are each displayed as a computer readout displaying the actor's name, footage of the character played as well as vital statistics and personal data.


Alternate Versions

The DVD includes deleted scenes, which, while some are still in pencil form, make the film more complete. They are as follows:

  • "Green Drink" - This is a longer version of the scene where Cale and Korso discuss the Titan. It includes Cale fixing the broken machine and more dialogue about his father and the Titan.
  • "Akima's Rescue" - This is another version of the scene where Korso and friends find Akima in the trade area. In this scene, she blows up an alarm and frees all the slaves.
  • "Ice Crystals- Extended Version" - This is basically an extended version of the famous ice crystals scene. It includes more dialogue between Cale and Akima (in pencil form), and scenes in different angles.
  • "Alternate Ending" - This is an extended ending where the Drej actually talk (not in subtitles) and more dialogue between Cale and Korso. Most of it is in pencil form, and it ends right after the Drej are destroyed.
