Young, ambitious Milo is given a journal that will lead him to Atlantis, a city that vanished under a wave years ago. At the bottom of the ocean he and his crew find more than a lost city.

Atlantis: The Lost Empire is based loosely on a story about a city that might have existed about 12,000 years ago. This technically advanced city had flying machines, boats, magnificent palaces and technology you only read about in science fiction books. In one night this city mysteriously vanished under a wave and ever since then people have been looking for Atlantis.

In 1914, our hero, Milo Thatch, is given a journal that will lead him to the lost city. With the best crew available he sets out to find Atlantis. His character is the typical goofy dreamer who longs to be a historian. He can't even quit his job without being laughed at, he gets seasick, he stutters half the time and he trusts the wrong people.

You don't need to use your imagination for this movie. The graphics and animations do the work for you. Just sit back and enjoy the trip. Milo and his crew find the lost city and come across this beautiful place with a small village of surviving Atlantians. Every movie has to have a villain and Atlantis is no exception. The power source keeping the villagers alive is stolen and Milo must save the day.

There are several funny parts to the movie like when Milo tries to impress a girl by jumping in the water and his shorts balloon up. But what makes this movie the strongest are the characters. The voice of Milo belongs to Michael J. Fox and you totally feel like the character is alive. Other characters, like Captain Roarke, Sweet (a very large doctor), Mole (a fat, dirty man who likes to dig) and several others don't all have famous voices behind them but are still perfect for the job.

Although the graphics are great and the story line is okay, most of the events don't have you hanging on the edge of your seat. In fact, several times when the crew manages to easily escape danger the event is quickly forgotten about. The characters seem to have the solution to every problem they come across including guns, trucks and even planes. The ending is no surprise but you leave with a smile on your face. This fantasy movie won't be talked about over and over for the next few years but it's worth watching on a rainy day - and you won't be singing in the rain. Unlike most Disney flicks, this one has no singing.
