Storyline

One thousand years from now, aliens destroy Earth in fear of the Titan project. Some humans escape, becoming a downtrodden Diaspora, living in impoverished settlements. The mysterious Titan spacecraft also escapes, and its inventor has hidden it before dying. A spacecraft captain and its pilot, Korso and Akima, two humans, seek out Cale, the youthful son of the dead scientist and explain that he must help them find the Titan, which holds a mechanism to unite and save humanity. Cale refuses, but the arrival of the killer aliens persuades him to join Korso. Can he avoid his pursuers, know friend from foe, find the Titan, and embrace his humanity, a nature he has despised until now? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

Cale: Yeah? What is the truth?
Korso: That the human race is outta gas. It's circling the drain. It's finished! The only thing that matters is grabbing whatcha can before somebody else beats ya to it.
Cale: No, I don't believe that.
Korso: Then you're even more like your father than I thought... a fool.

Alternate Versions

The DVD includes deleted scenes, which, while some are still in pencil form, make the film more complete. They are as follows:
  • "Green Drink" - This is a longer version of the scene where Cale and Korso discuss the Titan. It includes Cale fixing the broken machine and more dialouge about his father and the Titan.
  • "Akima's Rescue" - This is another version of the scene where Korso and friends find Akima in the trade area. In this scene, she blows up an alarm and frees all the slaves.
  • "Ice Crystals- Extended Version" - This is basically an extended version of the famous ice crystals scene. It includes more dialouge between Cale and Akima (in pencil form), and scenes in different angles.
  • "Alternate Ending" - This is an extended ending where the Drej actually talk (not in subtitles) and more dialouge between Cale and Korso. Most of it is in pencil form, and it ends right after the Drej are destroyed.

Don't dis this movie!
9 July 2005 | by Travis_MoranSee all my reviews

The first time I saw this I was 13 or 14. I saw it in a theatre with some friends. Most of em didn't really seem impressed but I really thought it rocked. I really like Cale's character. He seemed to "click" as a normal guy you wouldn't mind being identified with. And that Goon character was just fantastic. I really liked the scene with the giant ice crystals, and the sound effects during that scene were awesome. And I noticed this movie had a lot of Starwars references, but who cares. Didn't bother me in the least---in fact I like that kind of thing.

I was sort of disappointed at how this one just sort of dried up and blew away (I don't even think it played a whole week at the theatre). Luckily a friend, knowing I liked this movie, gave me a DVD he'd bought and no longer wanted. So, again, I watched and enjoyed this unappreciated great creation. Somehow it seemed even better now.

As usual, I'll leave all the technical discussions to other reviewers (of which there are a multitude). I try to review on an entertainment level only...yeah, I suppose I'm the shallow guy who only sees what's right up front.

Anyhow, if you care a whit about sci-fi, don't miss this one even if it is animated. It doesn't really have that "anime" feel to it. So if you're turned off by anime, check this one out anyway.

BTW, this movie is great for family viewing.
