Disney has released double the action and double the adventure for the first time in a 2-movie collection Blu-ray Combo Pack – “Atlantis: The Lost Empire, and “Atlantis: Milo’s Return” can be purchased on June 11, 2013!
The must have 2-movie duo is filled with stunning visual effects that come to life like never before in digitally restored high definition picture and sound. These are captivating stories of teamwork and friendship. Disney sent these movies over to use to review in exchange for my honest opinion.
Set your course for adventure as Milo Thatch and his fearless crew dive into the mysteries of the sea. The group’s underwater expedition brings them face-to-face with gigantic sea monsters, spectacular spirited and the mythical land of Atlantis while they discover the power of teamwork and friendship.
“Atlantis: The Lost Empire is one of Disney’s most go-getting films. It stands out apart from other popular Disney films with it’s use of science-fiction, pulp storytelling, and non-musical format. As well as aiming towards older audiences. Brought to you by the creators of “The Lion King” and “Beauty and The Beast.
In this particular film, settled in 1914 the grandson of Thaddeus Thatch: Milo Thatch works in a boiler room in a museum. With is thoughts about the truth of Atlantis, has a mind set of getting there, but only with the Shephard’s Journal. He can’t get there, or even try with out funding, his boss won’t even think about doing it. So upset Milo heads home to find a woman there who leads him to a friend of his grandfather: Preston B. Whitmore. He gives him more than he needs to voyage to Atlantis that leaves Milo speechless. Watch the movie to see if Milo is able to get to Atlantis and prove everyone wrong.
I have seen this movie way back when it came out in 2001. I really liked the movie, along with any other Disney movie! I just loved the different approach that was brought to it. The science-fiction and no singing actually made me more interested in the movie and how it was well made then focusing on the pretty colors and cute characters like other Disney movies. “Atlantis: The Lost Empire” is truly a splurge of opening opinions about the whole topic. It was spread out well, with its great animated effects and dialogue.
With talented voice actors/actresses: Michael J. Fox as Milo Thatch, James Garner as Cmdr. Lyle Rourke, John Mahoney as Preston B. Whitmore, and Leonard Nimoy as King Kashekim Nedakh.
Although it turns towards an older audience it is a great film for the whole family and all ages.
In the second film, “Atlantis: Milo’s Return”, is composed up of 3 episodes. On the first episode Milo and Queen Kida come about a small town called Krankenstad, lead by Magistrate Edgar Volgud. In the second episode, the missed team from “The Lost Empire” head over to the Southwest to find a sandstorm and meet a land prospector Sam McKeane. And lastly in the third episode, Preston B. Whitmore has a conflict with his old enemy, Erik Hellstorm.
Watching this some-what film/series of episodes after “Atlantis: The Lost Empire” was actually a little bit disappointing. It seemed less thought out and more of a mystery cartoon show. Although it is the sequel to the first Atlantis it isn’t much like it. With a different approach towards characters and newly found plots it wasn’t much of a favorite for me. It would have been better if they took the 6 creators held it back for more work on it instead releasing it in 2003.
With voice actors/actresses: James Arnold Taylor as Milo Thatch, Kree Summer as Kida Clancy Brown as Volgud.
All in all I sort of enjoyed (both) movies.
