Storyline

1914: Milo Thatch, grandson of the great Thaddeus Thatch works in the boiler room of a museum. He knows that Atlantis was real, and he can get there if he has the mysterious Shephards journal, which can guide him to Atlantis. But he needs someone to fund a voyage. His employer thinks he's dotty, and refuses to fund any crazy idea. He returns home to his apartment and finds a woman there. She takes him to Preston B. Whitmore, an old friend of his Grandfathers. He gives him the shepherds journal, a submarine and a 5 star crew. They travel through the Atlantic ocean, face a large lobster called the Leviathan, and finally get to Atlantis. But does the Atlantis crew have a lust for discovery, or something else? Written by <laserwatch007@yahoo.com>

Trivia

Jim Varney (Cookie) died just before finishing the film. The "I ain't so good at speechifying" line near the end is the only line not spoken by Varney. Steven Barr did the voice for that scene. See more »

Goofs

In several scenes, the submarine's crew are seen wearing gas masks akin to those developed for trench warfare. Gas had not been deployed as a weapon yet, but the concept of a gas mask dates back to the 9th century. A gas mask was patented in America in 1849 by Lewis Haslett, for filtering dust. Furthermore, the African American inventor Garrett A. Morgan invented a gas mask in 1912 that proved useful for gas/smoke-filled environments. Military use of gas masks did not occur until at least 1915, but Rourke runs a private army with unconventional equipment, to say the least. It is not difficult to imagine him or an associate seeing the need for protective masks in a dusty, potentially gas-filled underground environment. See more »

"We witness the Mother of all Races, to once again see it disappear "
11 May 2012 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Facinated with the ancient story of Atlantis, we have here yet another attempt to resurrect it from a watery grave to entertain modern audiences. The film is entitled " Atlantis: The lost Empire " and once again it's left up to the animators of Walt Disney studios to offer us this charming rendition. James Garner's recognizable voice plays Commander Lyle Rourke an opportunistic, adventurer who leads a team to the wondrous and fabulous city of Atlantis. Michael J. Fox is the voice of Milo Thatch, who's grandfather left him a book detailing the route to reach the mythical city. John Mahoney, Phil Morris, David Ogden Stiers, Don Novello, Jim Varney and Leonard Nimoy head an all star cast to the water kingdom. It's a magical place with colorful sceneries and highlighted with flying vehicles, all of which are designed to bring to life the city beneath the sea. The film has garnered much praise and countless awards in it's quest to become what for Disney is yet another Classic movie. Cree Summer adds a royal flair as Princess 'Kida', while Claudia Christian, Jacqueline Obradors and Florence Stanley complete the wonderful assemblage. The entire movie is another triumph for directer Gary Trousdale and writer Kirk Wise. Easily recommended. ****
