|Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001)|
A worthwhile venture that may not go down as a modern animated classic, but it does expose Disney as a studio more than willing to break free of tradition and try something a little different, for once. It's about time.
Blu-ray also includes "Atlantis: Milo's Return!"
As with "Lilo & Stitch," Disney's "Atlantis: The Lost Empire" is only harmed by its rather generic animation, a phase in the early 2000s that the studio thankfully graduated out of. One can't really fault the transfer for this, though, which is clear as a bell and true to source. The 5.1 audio is nothing if not enveloping; this Blu-ray sounds terrific.
