Overview

Titan A.E. combines cel and CG imagery in this science fiction saga. In 3028, after the Earth is destroyed by an invading alien race, a tiny number of surviving humans roam the universe in ragtag spaceships, trying to find each other and maintain some sense of community. Shortly before the final destruction of the planet, Cale (voice of Matt Damon) was given a map that would guide him to a space station called Titan, secretly constructed as a last hope in the event of alien Armageddon. Cale sets out in search of Titan and the fabled Ice Planet with the help of his friend Korso (voice of Bill Pullman), the beautiful Akima (voice of Drew Barrymore), and a crew of friendly aliens. Titan A.E. was directed by noted animators Don Bluth and Gary Goldman and scripted by Ben Edlund, creator of the comic book series The Tick. Other members of the voice cast include Nathan Lane, Janeane Garofalo, John Leguizamo, and Tone Loc.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Jason Bergenfeld
In the year 3028, Earth's days are numbered, and a nasty race known as the Drej are doing the numbering. As he's about to escape the final blast, young Cale promises his father he'll come back, and accepts his dad's ring as a symbol of the pledge. Fifteen years later, Cale (Matt Damon) journeys across the galaxy with his father's old comrade, Korso (Bill Pullman), and the beautiful Akima (Drew Barrymore), searching for the Titan, an old spaceship that may be the last hope for hordes of nomadic earthlings -- with the Drej in hot pursuit. Veteran animator Don Bluth (Anastasia, Disney's Robin Hood) blasts audiences off to a universe of dazzling special effects, mixing traditional animation with computer-generated graphics in a story that recalls Star Wars and serials of the '30s and '40s. Exciting voice performances by Damon, Pullman, and Barrymore are accompanied by a stellar soundtrack featuring the guitar-grinding rock of Lit and Powerman 5000, as well as the millennium space-age funk of Jamiroquai and Luscious Jackson. A box-office no-show in the theaters, Titan A.E. is a blast on the home screen, where its electrifying space adventure unfolds with frenzied fun. The THX-certified Special Edition DVD release also includes commentary from the directors, a making-of featurette, deleted scenes, trailers, stills, and more.

This is probably one of the best science fiction cartoon movies that have ever been made! The story and plot are excellent, not to mention the ingenious graphics and effects. Don Bluth and his team outdid themselves with this great movie.

Whoever's idea it was to do so much 2d and computer animation together should have been fired. The story was unoriginal (ever see Star Wars?) and the animal characters were goofy.

THe movie in my opinion and our kids was a thumbs up. But just so the consumers know, I'ts Not rated R it's PG. Barnes and noble, needs to get themselves together and reseach this stuff better!

So great, I saw it 11 times in its theatrical run and bought the video the day of its release. Superb animation, breathtaking graphics, believable characters and an intriguing story filled with all kinds of space adventures. The soundtrack is cutting-edge rock and really adds to the intensity of the scenes. There are some space scapes here that you've never seen before, like mesmerizing colorful nebulas, eerily mysterious planets, and a dangerous icefield that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I'd throw Star Wars out the window for this sci-fi adventure. A definate must-see.

I loved this movie so much, that I actually bought it the day after my family and I rented it. It was put together wonderfully and the special effects are awesome! This movie is one of the best cartoon movies ever made. Well, that's what I think. (I also have the soundtrack to this movie and it is the best! Get it today.)

I loved this movie and all the animation, creatively and artfully masterful in content. However, this movie is not rated R. It is PG, and would be great to show to even a kid of 7 or 8. *Some partial back nudity when Cale is being examined and given medicine. But really nothing bad. The littler children would probably just giggle, then get on with watching the rest of the movie.

Enjoyed Don Bluthe's attempt at a sci-fi movie. Inorporating cel and 3d-digi animation made a pretty evenly seemed movie. Only issue that I had with it was the inconsistent 3d animation between the ice scene and the rest of the movie; ILM did the ice scene to a breath-taking quality, but the rest of the movie failed to take the same amount of breath. This was NOT a reason for me to pass up buying the movie myself and enjoying it. Totally worth a rent for the regular Joe/Jane, and worth a buy by the computer, scifi and animation nerds out there (which I¿m a proud member!)

I play video games and the graphics for the scene when Cale is captured by the Drej are just as good as XBox and Gamecube (all fellow gamers, you know what I mean). I didn't see all of the movie but I read the book which is just as good

the best animation film I ever saw. i gave up watching animation films ever since there started to be more and more sappy disney movies. and when my mom forced me into viewing it when i was babysitting for my little bro i didn't think it would be any better. i got totaly hooked, my brother got sick of it.

This movie really kicked! The computer-graphics and the 2d, I think, mixed rather well. The plot line does kind of get lost a couple of times, but it restates itself before you become lost. This movie will make a great gift for sci-fi fans regardless of age or preference of live-action over animation.

I had wanted to see this in the theater, but missed it. When I rented it I thought the transfer to my small screen would diminish the power of it, but I was wrong. The music, the voices, the 3D imagery over 2D space paintings... it was just a great combination. I watched it solo first, but realized that it is totally acceptable for my two boys to watch and they love it. I rate it right up there with Iron Giant for skill and emotional content, and it rates with the original Heavy Metal for combined animation and pure rock and roll adrenaline!

The movie was half good and half bad. Sometimes the 2d and computer graphics together looked a little funky, and the story could have been a lot better. But the voice-overs were good, and the music was good. If you are looking for an animated movie but not a Disney one, check this out.
