Entertaining and beautiful to watch, but also messy and lost.

I remember thoroughly enjoying Titan A.E at the cinema almost 15 years ago and, though I enjoyed watching it again, it was a different experience. Back then it was a film about a daring trip through space to save humanity. Now, it’s a beautifully animated film with a promising premise but a lack of clarity and direction. It’s a shame to think that the studio was closed after this, but it just didn’t match their previous film, Anastasia. It’s worth a watch, but be prepared to scoff at the impossibility of the ending; I didn’t remember it ending like that!
