** Not to mention that when they are received by the Atlanteans, Helga says that there wasn't supposed to be people in Atlantis and that that changes everything for the operation. Even looks a bit unpleased when Rourke just says it will all remain the same.

* Why did the Crystal even need a person to fuse with? Especially the second time, when fusing with Kida only made the situation worse by making the Crystal able to be captured (it didn't even fight back or anything). And why did the Crystal give back Kida at the end, when it didn't give back her mother? Why ''didn't'' it give back her mother?

**Her mother was connected to it for too long. The king said that if "Kida remains bonded to the cystal for too long, she will be lost to it... Forever." So I assume her mom was just bonded to it for a bit to long when it sank the city and the crystal just absorbed her.

** For starters, World War II might NEVER have happened. No Hitler, no Nazis, no Holocaust, no bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, etc.

** Even most mercenary companies, who accept that they will be killing enemy soldiers just to get rich, generally recognize that it's not ''right'' to strand non-combatants in a situation that will inevitably kill them. EvenEvilHasStandards is pretty common for a reason.

* When Milo gives his "it's all about money, huh?" chastisement, all of his friends are in the middle of leaving him behind in Atlantis to die with the Atlanteans, and are subsequently convinced to instead do the right thing because of his speech. We all see them actively change their minds and walk over to stand with Milo. Except for Sweet. As we see only moments later, Sweet has been inside the palace tending to the dying king, not among the other mercenaries even though he had originally been part of their plan. The crew was clearly only seconds from driving away before being convinced by Milo, so we can only assume that they fully intended to leave Sweet behind too. Which can only mean that Sweet had a HeelFaceTurn even ''before'' Milo's speech, most likely right when Rourke punched the king and he immediately tried to help him, saying, "This was not part of the plan." All it took was hurting one defenseless old man to convince the doctor that this plan was all wrong.

prevailing over all. And that's awesome.

*** Agreed. That page had a great big shiny star-diamond thing on it that took up almost half the illustration. It's not hard to figure that's the most important moneymaker in the quest.

** It certainly isn't, considering what happened to Rourke just minutes later.

* Kida often brings up that Atlantis is in ruins. We see for ourselves that the city during the story is pretty much unrecognizable as the preserved safe area that was protected from the wave in the prologue in the prologue, and even have Milo and Kida's swim to show us just how much of Atlantis is flooded and uninhabitable even inside their safe haven bubble under the sea. It begs the question as to why no one tried to repair the buildings. Then we learn about the Crystal being the power source of Atlantis. It's not a stretch to think that after the Crystal was sealed in the chamber, the power keeping the city functioning weakened to the point where they could no longer operate the technology to make big repairs and were forced to abandon large parts of the city as they flooded or collapsed over the years.

* Or the fact that the Atlantis they found was only a small portion of the whole continent, or even the original capital. When the surface adventurers first arrive, the city is pretty much unrecognizable even as the preserved safe area that was protected in the prologue. At the end of the movie the water level drops and the missing parts of the city from the prologue can be seen.
