It's laced with literate humor, and the directors cite N.C. Wyeth's illustrations for the 1911 Scribner's edition of Treasure Island as the inspiration for their marvelously detailed fantasy world.

I think kids will find it really entertaining, and parents will find it amusing enough.
Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper  full review
 
There's enough meaty plot and character left beneath the fancy effects to make watching the film a satisfying experience.
Daphne Gordon, Toronto Star  full review
 
It just may inspire a few younger moviegoers to read Stevenson's book, which is a treasure in and of itself.
Eleanor Ringel Gillespie, Atlanta Journal-Constitution  full review
 
One of the most gorgeous Disney films ever.
Bill Muller, Arizona Republic
 
Enjoy the spectacle.
Desson Thomson, Washington Post
 
It's all quite vividly imagined, down to the tiniest details.
Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
 
Despite more betrayal and loyalty than a Chris Carabba box set, there's no real good or evil here.
Laura Sinagra, Village Voice  full review
 
'Treasure Plane' starts with the clever idea of transforming the story into an old-fashioned space opera, and the animated visuals are handily up to the studio's best. Yet the film's total appeal may be undercut by a script that rarely feels inspired.

Treasure Planet doesn't have the charm of Disney's last homegrown release, Lilo & Stitch, or the dazzling artistry of Spirited Away. But it's a capable and diverting holiday season adventure for a family audience.
Claudia Puig, USA Today  full review
 
It's a pleasant enough way to mark time, which is exactly what the rest of the Disney crew is doing -- until inspiration, like a beam from the far end of the galaxy, strikes again.
Glenn Lovell, San Jose Mercury News  full review
 
When the Disney people go after your holiday dollar, they don't leave anything in the paint box.
C.W. Nevius, San Francisco Chronicle  full review
 
Sci-fi meets sea-faring fantasy, and the mix isn't half bad.
Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
 
Has its moments, but it's pretty far from a treasure.
Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel
 
Better than OK, but no Spirited Away.
Lou Lumenick, New York Post
 
If Treasure Planet falls short of Lion King's classic status, it still proves there is plenty of room in animation for movies that aren't geared exclusively to 8-year-olds.
