Consensus: Though its characterizations are weaker than usual, Treasure Planet offers a fast-paced, beautifully rendered vision of outer space.

Bill Stamets
Chicago Reader

It's laced with literate humor, and the directors cite N.C. Wyeth's illustrations for the 1911 Scribner's edition of Treasure Island as the inspiration for their marvelously detailed fantasy world.

There's enough meaty plot and character left beneath the fancy effects to make watching the film a satisfying experience.

It just may inspire a few younger moviegoers to read Stevenson's book, which is a treasure in and of itself.

Matt Brunson
Creative Loafing

The addition of an insufferable robot named B.E.N. (Martin Short) cripples much of the film's momentum and renders many of the latter scenes unwatchable (a friend once dubbed B.E.N. "the Jar-Jar Binks of animation," and she was absolutely right).

I think kids will find it really entertaining, and parents will find it amusing enough.

One of the most gorgeous Disney films ever.

Given the amazing artwork, if a better character [than a cyborg John Silver] had been inserted, we'd be talking about "Treasure Planet" as another Disney classic.
