Atlantis: Milo's Return is an animated adventure film that was released in 2003. This movie was a direct-to-video release and serves as a sequel to the animated film, Atlantis: The Lost Empire, which released in 2001. The film was directed by Tad Stones and features the voices of James Arnold Taylor, Cree Summer, John Mahoney, and Jacqueline Obradors.

The story of the film picks up after the events of the first film. Milo Thatch, the protagonist from the first film, is now a part of the Smithsonian Institution. He is approached by his friend, Queen Kida, to help her protect the city of Atlantis from a group of greedy fascinators who want to steal the city's secrets.

Milo and Kida team up with their old friends, the crew of the submarine Ulysses, to fight against the villains. The Ulysses crew is made up of characters such as Vincenzo "Vinny" Santorini, Dr. Joshua "Josh" Sweet, Audrey Ramirez, and Wilhelmina "Wilhelmina" Packard.

This film can be divided into three stories or adventures that Milo and the crew undertake. In the first adventure, the Ulysses crew travels to Norway to investigate a sea monster sighting. There they encounter a group of Vikings who lead them to a hidden underwater volcanic kingdom that is filled with precious gems.

The second adventure takes place in the Southwest desert of the United States, where the crew discovers a colony of ancient Native Americans that were once thought to be just a myth. As they explore this lost civilization, they uncover a plot by a greedy businessman to destroy the ruins and take their sacred treasure.

Finally, in the third adventure, the crew travels to the Mediterranean, where they discover a lost city that is being menaced by a group of ancient Titans. The Titans are trying to take over the city and use it as a base for their return to conquer the world.

Throughout these three adventures, the crew of the Ulysses is faced with various challenges and obstacles. They have to deal with dangerous sea creatures, booby traps, and treacherous terrain. However, with their ingenuity and teamwork, they are able to overcome these obstacles and triumph over the villains.

The animation style of this film is similar to that of the original Atlantis film. The characters are well-designed, and the backgrounds are rich and detailed. The film also features a score by James Newton Howard, which adds to the film's overall adventurous and epic feel.

One of the most significant aspects of this film is the relationship between Milo and Kida. In the first movie, it was clear that the two had a connection, but it was never fully explored. However, in this sequel, their relationship is explored in depth. It is clear from the start that the two characters have feelings for each other, and the film does a good job of building their relationship throughout the three adventures.

Overall, Atlantis: Milo's Return is an enjoyable adventure film that will appeal to fans of the original Atlantis film. While it may not be as good as the original, it still has its moments of excitement, humor, and heart. The film also ends on a bit of a cliffhanger, which could leave the door open for another sequel.

Atlantis: Milo's Return is a 2003 fantasy movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 20 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.1.
