Our Score
Talk about starting with a bang! Don Bluth (The Land before Time, An American Tail) kicks off this animated spectacular with nothing less than the blowing-up of the Earth, forcing survivors Cale (voiced by Matt Damon) and Akima (Drew Barrymore) to put one over on the offending aliens by reactivating a hidden spacecraft, the eponymous Titan. Three parts Star Wars to one part Star Trek, Titan AE ("After Earth" in case you were wondering) imaginatively blends top-quality cel and digital animation, resulting in something well beyond mere eye candy for kids. One particularly glorious scene has ephemeral space "angels" riding the bow wake of a starship in the same way that dolphins ride the bow waves of boats.


In the year 3038, an alien race has annihilated almost all of mankind and destroyed the Earth. A scientist escapes the planet on board a craft that is destined to be humanity's only chance of future survival - the spaceship Titan. Fourteen years later, his estranged son plucks up courage and sets out on a perilous journey to find the ship and reunite with his father. Animated sci-fi adventure, with the voices of Matt Damon, Bill Pullman and Drew Barrymore.
