    One of The Best Dora DVD’s…Graet Fun, December 17, 2004

    This review is from: Dora the Explorer – Pirate Adventure (DVD)

    My 2 year old is Dora obsessed. She has the couch, dinnerware set, books, blocks, doll, dvd’s, swimsuit and slippers and sheet set. We own all her DVD’s with the exception of 1, and this is my daughter’s fave. The first feature is 40 minutes and it takes Dora and ALL her friends on an adventure to get their treasure chest. Dora for anyone who isn’t familiar basically has the same layout for every episode but in this the songs are a little different. Swiper even sings his Oh Man! There are two other episodes which are about 20 minutes each. All of the episodes incorporate Spanish as we follow Dora and Boots on their adventures. My fave are the special features on this disc. There are flash cards and previews and even a snippet with Oobi but the best is the Sing Alongs. This dvd always gets my daughter singing and dancing. I do sometimes feel as though I’m surronded by Dora but it’s worth the monotony for me a slong as my daughter enjoys it. This is a dvd tthat will be sure to please any Dora fan or toddler.

    Dora es MAGNIFICO! 🙂, March 30, 2004

    This review is from: Dora the Explorer – Pirate Adventure (DVD)

    My 3 yr old is a Dora FANATIC. My ongoing joke is if they would come out w/ Dora toilet paper, my home would officially be completely Dora. 🙂 But of all the videos she has (and I beleive she has them all) this one is great. I have to admit, that as an adult, this was a little annoying at first. (Hearing the little friends and Dora singing “Empuje! Empuje!” really loud over & over was nearly enough to send this stressed out mom over the edge….) However, I have grown to love it. First, she has picked up SO MUCH Spanish from this video, much more than she has from her other videos or Dora books. I’m amazed. Also, she seems to be growing to appreciate the musical format, which is great, since I hope to begin taking her to some Broadway productions soon. Yes, Dora marketing is very Savy… our Dora LIVE tickets are purchased and I think we have anything that you can buy… but it is well worth it. My daughter has learned so much from this character, and I’m not only talking about Spanish. I just love Dora.

    Stunning Vision, Fun and Action, But a Confusing Plot, August 2, 2002
    By 
    Sir Charles Panther “Life is hard. It’s hard… (Alexandria, Virginny, USandA) –
      

      

    Overall, this is good fun. It’s an exciting film, highly imaginative, and visually spectacular, with a story that moves very quickly albeit thoroughly confusingly. I happily recommend it for family viewing.

    Compared to recent Disney releases such as Cinderella II – Dreams Come True (Special Edition), 101 Dalmatians 2, and all of the other poorly done and profit-driven knockoffs, this film is an original gem. The animation is excellent, the characters are interesting and fun to watch, and the overall story is compelling, as well as very fast-paced. The movie certainly is suitable for kids as young as three or four, despite some of the more esoteric, non-sensical plot twists. We’ve got spectacular scenery, gadgets, battles, action, and explosions and fire, more than enough to keep the little ones fully engaged throughout. No sex, no drugs, no profanity, and only a little bit of blood (although the bad guys most certainly do get killed, neither graphically nor gloatingly).

    Most impressive in this film is the artistic vision. Atlantis provides a fantastic opportunity to be creative, and the animators do not disappoint. The relatively modern (1907) setting allows some technical and scientific freedom for the animators, which was taken full advantage of. Everything is huge, massive in scale, from the steamship and its submarine, to the Leviathan guardian, to the tunnels and artifacts of Atlantis. For me, this is the most enjoyable part of the film, simply looking at the landscapes and backgrounds the animators have provided as backdrops for the action. This is excellent work, truly spectacular.

    The cast is wonderfully diverse, ethnically, physically, and in terms of education, abilities, and hygiene. It’s a really truly honestly and genuinely wonderful rainbow of diversity and teamwork, because, you know, it’s only when we let go of our prejudices and overlook stereotypes that we can triumph over adversity. That being said, the strangest and filthiest member of the crew is the non-stop butt of jokes, derision, and less than thoughtful treatment by the rest of the team.

    There’s a minor problem, though. As dad to a six- and three-year-old, I’ve seen this film maybe 60 times in the past three months. As many times as I’ve watched it, I still don’t grasp the entire concept of the Atlantean power crystal, how it “chooses” a host, what the crystal-host does, what exactly becomes physically of the crystal-host, and how the chosen individual interacts with it. Sure, the impossible-to-miss end-state is a human-interfaced and -generated automatic defensive system which protects the entire city, but all of the story elements don’t make it clear how this all comes together. This is a bit anal, I know, but it just doesn’t make sense.

    Violence, yeah, there’s enough of it, but precious little blood, and no gore. It’s family-friendly violence, where the bad guys disappear neatly and completely in spectacular swirling, spiraling balls of beautifully rendered, parti-colored fire, with no suffering depicted. Early on we see an entire submarine and crew go down, and a little memorial service to commemorate the loss of 200-odd folks. There is also some good explosions during the final battle, with ball-of-fire ends to both bad guys and much fewer non-star Atlantaean good guys. None of the bad guys make it out alive, and the two bad-guy leaders die more or less visibly, but again, without blood or gore. The one, probably most direct instance of violence, is the bad-guy leader punching the enfeebled king of the Atlanteans in the stomach. The king later dies of his (internal) injuries, but the time-separation between the act and its results lessens the impact of the killing.

    The uplifting aspects are just as powerful, and in the end the focus of the story. We have the love story between the leads, as well as a totally predictable yet nonetheless powerful shift in alliance from the established team members to that of the Atlanteans when it comes time to do the right thing. We see love and sacrifice, traits my six-year-old picked up on with no prompting from me.

    All in all, this is a very enjoyable film. I dwell on the violence to inform only, so don’t take it to mean that the film is full of violence; it is not. Overall, it’s about adventure, the excitement and wonder of discovery, and what can be done when you choose the hard right over the easy wrong.

    AWESOME!, June 16, 2001
    By 
    JM Yoda (Nebraska, United States) –

    I saw ATLANTIS last night, accompanied by my 65 year-old mother, and we both had a great time. No, it’s no LION KING or BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, but it’s not meant to be either; it’s meant to be something different for Disney, and it is. The action scenes are amazing, sometimes evoking for me images from the STAR WARS movies. The dialogue is often sharp, fast and hilarious (maybe a little too fast to follow for younger kids), and lots of our fellow adult audience members were laughing out loud. The voice talent is, as always with Disney, fantastic; Michael J. Fox does a terrific job as Milo, Leonard Nimoy is perfect as the aged Atlantean king, Cree Summer is proud, intelligent and earnest as Princess Kida, and Milo’s fellow adventurers are all equally well done. I didn’t find the storyline at all difficult to follow, and while the concept of the giant crystal that keeps Atlantis alive is a bit “new-age”, I don’t think kids will have a problem with it. It’s sci-fi, it’s fantasy, it’s adventure – it’s awesome! It’s also a whole lot more than what you’ve seen in the previews and commercials, so go see the movie TODAY! You’ll have a great time, and it might just spark your interest in the search for the real (hey, there is intriguing evidence) Atlantis. Adventure lives!
