A extreme adoption...
Even though a popular classic was chosen for creating a cartoon movie ('Treasure Island', by Robert Louis Stevenson) the result was a little disappointing, mainly because of the extreme space setting used. The original story took place at the 18th century and was a typical pirate story, having the least to do with light-speed spacecrafts. In this way the potential advantage of a great scenario disappeared. The overall concept of a space-pirate tale fails to persuade even the younger watchers, while the slogan: 'It's only a cartoon' doesn't seem to apply at this case.
On the other hand a couple of good features appeared. The character design and animation were wonderful. The scene with the explosion in the end is very impressive as well as all the sky-skateboarding scenes. Finally the soundtracks of the movie were delightful.

Yikes! One of the most nauseatingly painful piles of mouse vomit I've ever had the misfortune of being forced to sit through. The elaborate computer visuals do not make up for the annoying and pointless characters in a hacked-out story.

HIT THE NAIL RIGHT ON THE HEAD
Get ready to buckle up with space shattering secret. A secret of a whole planet filled with the treasures of a million star systems and only one boy named Jim Hawkins was the only map.
This adeptation of the story of 'TREASURE ISLAND' but with a futuristic twist. It has all the same qualities of the original story, with a DIsney twist and a bit of Disney magic, that well delight the new generation as well as the older generations
Way to go Disney, Keep up the good work -- Walt would be proud!
