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

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. ****
