"What? I got machine guns... in my butt?"

As a kid, I was a big fan of the Astro Boy anime series. It had action and cool robot characters - it was all great fun. Many years after the original series, a 3D animated feature film of the anime was to be made, and unlike most, I wasn't annoyed about it. I thought it could actually work.

Note: I know nothing about Astro Boy apart from this movie.

I hereby accuse this movie of various villainies and crimes. Astro Boy rips off various other films, is filled with cliches, there's an abundance of plot holes, and enough cop-outs to go around. This movie is a blundered mess. My main problem; it's an enjoyable blundered mess.

""So overall, this is a decent movie. The good parts are really good, even if it can be generic at times, and some parts make no sense. It’s not perfect, but I think it’s the most underrated animated film of 2009. Take that for what it’s worth" GRADE: B+"

Failed movie franchises part 2 (88 movies items)

" Note: Before the movie was released, they talked about doing a sequel and hoping the movie will be a big hit at the box office. The movie really tanked at the box-office and nothing happen in the past few years. I never saw it and I don't plan on too. I remember the TV ads for the movie looked awful. "

“"What? I got machine guns... in my butt?"

Many years after the original series, a 3D animated feature film of the anime was to be made, and unlike most, I wasn't annoyed about it. I thought it could actually work. Directed by David Bowers, Astro Boy has a lot going for it. There's a great voice cast, pretty animation, and exceptional robotic battles. The issue is that this just feels extremely lame. I can't bring myself to hate Astro Boy, but I still have to say it is very flawed family film. For children, the lame screenplay can be ignored due to the flashy look of the film, but adults I doubt will enjoy the film as much.

Astro Boy is about a child named Toby Tenma (Freddie Highmore). He's a robot genius, like his father, Dr. Tenma (Nicolas Cage). During an unfortunate robot malfunction, Toby perishes in an explosion. Dr. Tenma is greatly saddened by this loss, so he uses his son's DNA to create an exact robot replica, and when the boy awakes, Dr. Tenma never tells Toby about his transformation. However, some critical changes have occured. In fact, this ” read more
