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.

Summary

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.
