Before the solar sails are set this film is sheer adventure perfection, w/ a wonderful melding of Stevenson & steampunk. But then it missteps & feels more like an uninspired retread of the book. The dated rock songs & lowbrow gags are offset by sidekicks, Thomspon's Amelia, & Pierce's Doppler. Despite it's flaws, the sense of adventure & blend of CGI & hand-drawn animation make this an underrated Disney film.
Visually this is probably the least impressive Disney's movie, using a lot of early 2000 cgi. I didn't really enjoyed it that much, there are to many parts when tries too hard to be "cool and hip", the rest is decent but at all forgettable. Definitely a product of its time.
