Atlantis: the Lost Empire is a great, thrilling movie, had me on the edge of my seat. This is a great movie about a boy who lost his grandpa and he got this "shepard's Journal" and he looks for the lost city of Atlantis.

It's a really good movie!!!

My first contender for best film of the year. "Atlantis:The Lost Empire" has plenty of action, adventure and romance.

What's special about this movie is that "Atlantis" could be achieve without the use of computer imagary like it has with "Shrek." I happen to like "Shrek," but "Atlantis:the Lost Empire" is much better because I can identified with the characters better than with "Shrek."

The film has plenty of Jules Vernes imagery as the film center on a nerd name Milo (with the voice of Michel J. Fox) as the voice of Milo. He came up with the theory that Atlantis exists though a book that was written in their native language. He organized an expedition to find the lost city.

The film is filled with memerable but wacky characters, lots of action and a romance between Milo and a native girl. Sure "Sherk" has lots of buzz, but "Atlantis: The Lost Empire" has somewthing much more. It has a heart.

"Atlantis" is not your typical Disney movie. It is an action-packed and violent thrill ride that probably isn't suitable for kids under eight.

True, there's the Disney staples of quirky sidekicks, pretty girls, and hateable villains, but there are also some very in-depth ideas that require a bit more comtemplation than usual, not to mention gunplay, columns of fire, a threat to an entire species, and a huge villain trying to chop the loveable main character into bits with an ax.

"Atlantis" is filled with fantastic visuals and some neat effects, but once again, take that PG rating with a grain of salt as this movie is a bit more intense than most animated Disney romps.

Simple, easy-going, fun! A movie the whole family can enjoy ... I wouldn't rush to see it but it makes for an enjoyable afternoon. Some suspense, innocent romance, visual artistry ... it all works!!

It's all right. The Drawing looks like you average Saturday morning cartoons ant there's a lot of places that leave you hanging. (he can't drive a truck but a mechanical fish from another world. He's an expert.) I can't help but compare it to Road to Eldorado and say, "What happened?" They're both movies along the same plot line but Atlantis just lacked. There's a lot that they could have done with the movie (I mean Atlantis! This kind of movie should know no boundries.) that they didn't.

Maybe cutting out a few of the "Wow! Look at that!" moments and adding some more plot twists or even explaining some of it better could have made a much better movie. Anyway to each his own. I hope I didn't dicourage any of you who read this from seeing the movie. (just don't pay too much)
