Atlantis: The Lost Empire is a 2001 steampunk movie.
1914: Milo Thatch, grandson of the great Thaddeus Thatch works in the boiler room of a museum. He knows that Atlantis was real, and he can get there if he has the mysterious Shepherds journal, which can guide him to Atlantis. But he needs someone to fund a voyage. His employer thinks he's crazy, and refuses to fund an expedition. He returns home to his apartment and finds a woman there. She takes him to Preston B. Whitmore, an old friend of his grandfathers. He gives him the Shepherds journal, a submarine and a 5 star crew. They travel through the Atlantic ocean, face a large creature called the Leviathan, and finally get to Atlantis. But does the Atlantis crew have a lust for discovery, or something else?
Fantastic steampunk vehicles are used to explore the inner world of Atlantis, with stereotypical steampunk archetyles and gender neutrality in an Edwardian Era setting.
