After the Earth is destroyed by an alien race over a thousand years from now, a few surviving humans shuttle around the galaxy in spaceships trying to find someplace safe to reunite. Young Cale (Damon) is in possession of a map detailing the safe haven of the space station Titan, and with the cooperation of Korso (Pullman), Akima (Barrymore), and some friendly aliens, he sets out to find it.

Amazing. Simply amazing. The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits an animated picture that is so pristine and dimensional, that some of the space scenes almost look real. Colors are bold and vibrant, with deep, pure blacks. Hues are solid, with no apparent chroma noise. The animation is sharp and finely detailed, with no distractions that I could find anywhere. This is a beautiful picture in all aspects of image quality. (Suzanne Hodges)
Once you complete the simple PCFriendly installation for Titan A.E., you are brought to the very well created main menu, complete with sound. There is really only one feature to this title, to go online and play the Titan A.E. Adventure. The Titan A.E. Adventure is an entertaining game, where you fly through space trying to find the Titan spaceship to save the world. You must plot a course, and fly between different star systems to find the spaceship. On your way, you have to blow up asteroids and enemy spacecraft to make it to safety. It is actually very difficult once the enemy appears, because there does not seem to be a way to dodge the enemy fire, and it really does damage to your shields when they hit. From the main menu, there are also links that send you to the beginning of the film, or the DVD-Video main menu. This is something new, and is really more then what is needed. I assume they just could not find anything more creative to put onto the main menu. Playing the movie from the PCFriendly software works fine, and the DVD-Video main menu works well using a mouse. There really is nothing to this title, actually it is only a few links: to the Web, and to the DVD-Video side of the disc. I am really disappointed with Titan A.E, because there is so much more that could have been done. (Danny Richelieu)
