Treasure Planet Review


Very Good
Children, put down your books. Thanks to Walt Disney Studios, you no longer need them. In today's world, a video store membership card and a working knowledge of animated Disney classics proves to be a much more valuable educational tool than a library card. Want to learn about early American settlers conquering the New World? Rent Pocahontas. Pending pop quiz on Greek mythology? Try Hercules. Put down Sir Edgar Rice Burroughs. You've got Tarzan.

The art of reading a book is slowly fading away. Disney realizes this, and even makes a not-so-veiled reference to it at the beginning of their latest literary plunder -- er, adaptation -- Treasure Planet. When we first meet our hero, 10-year-old Jim Hawkins, he's engrossed in a swashbuckling pirate novel. However, it's really a 3D pop-up novel, where interactive visual effects act out the stories for kids "reading" them. The process has begun.

Treasure Planet Review


Weak

Sucking all the "classic" out of Robert Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island" and filling the void with sci-fi video game graphics and Disney-fied adolescent angst, "Treasure Planet" is literally nothing more than a cartoon caricature of its inspiration.

Aiming squarely at cool-conscious pre-teen boys, writer-directors John Musker and Ron Clements ("Hercules," "The Little Mermaid") have re-imagined young hero Jim Hawkins (voice of Joseph Gordon-Levitt) as a sullen space delinquent from a broken home who sports a bad '80s pony tail and idles away his time "solar surfing" on a jet-engine sailboard and getting in minor scrapes with robotic cops.

That is, until a 3-D holographic treasure map falls into his hands, revealing the location of the fabled Treasure Planet where a space pirate hid all his booty. "This could be the answer to all our problems," he insists to his struggling, bistro-running single mom. So Jim sets off on his grand adventure in an old-fashioned but space-faring, three-mast, solar-wind-powered sailing ship that has been hired by nerdy, Goofy-reminiscent Dr. Doppler (voice of David Hyde Pierce) -- an alien astrophysicist and a regular at the diner who is trying to win the affections of the boy's mother by taking him under his wing.
