Stunning visual effects highlight this animated film. Definitly brought the art of animation up a notch. So-so plotline and unmemorable characters hurt this film drastically. To many gaps and unanswered questions. Geared towards an older audience , an entertaining movie none the less. A must see for buffs of animation. (planet Bob , hahaha, i am still laughing)

Titan A.E. is great idea that very nearly worked. It was made as an animated film that wasn't for little kids. The aim is mainly at the 12-year-old to young teenager crowd. To do this, it has many action-flick elements, like fast chases, loud gun battles, a rather gritty hero, and at one point a death of the major character by snapping his neck. During a majority of the film, it pulls the action-animation blend very well. The movie is fast-paced with an appropriate love interest and some interesting plot twists. The animation is extremely well done, with the old-fashioned hand-drawn characters blending well with the computer-generated background. The major problem with this film is the characters. Our hero, Cale (Matt Damon), is drawn with very plain looks. This is also the problem with Akima (Drew Barrymore). In fact, of the humans, only Korso is that distinctive. The most expressive face in the entire movie is that of an alien, Preed, who, voiced by Nathan Lane, is also by far the most interesting character as well. The Drei, the villains, just are too vague to be that frightening. The filmmakers don't bother to disclose the fact that they're made of pure energy until midway through the film. We never do find out the details of why the Drei want to destroy the human race. `They're afraid of what we might become.' is stated by Akima at one point. Become what? And why should they care? Overall, although it has many flaws, Titan A.E. is a fun film with breathtaking visuals. Plus, I love that `Planet Bob' joke at the end. Grade B
