    Qualifies as a pleasant time-killer, but it's 20,000 leagues beneath what it might have been.

    Rousing in an old pulp science fiction sort of way, but the climactic scene transcends the rest, and stands by itself as one of the great animated action sequences. show more

    Unfortunately for Disney, the real obstacle confronting the submarine isn't the giant lobster. It's a foul-smelling ogre, and it's no contest.
