"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.

When I was a kid, I used to watch the ‘Astro Boy’ cartoon and while I wasn’t a huge fan, I was always fascinated by the introduction when you saw this little robot come to life. Unsurprisingly, they decided to adapt this cartoon and since the animated market is rather saturated, it was pretty much a flop.

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.

"While it isn't terribly original, and it seems to have a political agenda that may rankle some viewers, Astro Boy boasts enough visual thrills to please its target demographic."

Unsurprisingly, they decided to adapt this cartoon and since the animated market is rather saturated, it was pretty much a flop. Still, there were some interesting things in this flick and there was some darkness rather unexpected in such a familly friendly. Indeed, during the first half hour, it was pretty much a mix of ‘Artificial Intelligence: AI’ and above all ‘Frankenstein’. It was quite striking and almost unsettling the way Dr Tenma try to resurrect his lost boy through this robot and his rejection of this little robot was also quite heartbreaking. Since ‘Up’, I had never seen such a dark i” read more

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

Great Animated Films. (50 movies items)

"A great reimagining of the anime classic, bringing the question of "what is humna?" asked by Ghost in the shell down to a more child friendly level. Beautiful animation brings out the iconic art style of Ozamu Tezuka."

"I'm staying with family in Spain right now, and there are 4 kiddos in the house with us. The TV has been on much of the time, with a variety of kid-friendly movie fare. I could list them all, but I figure it makes sense to only list the ones I actually sit through most/all of. So far this is the only one I've done that with, and it was as good as the first time I saw it."

"New DVD This movie was surprisingly good. This was made by the same studio that did TMNT, and I think they have stepped up their game since then. The visuals look vibrant, and the character motion is appropriately cartoony for the subject matter. The story is touching, if a little on the kid-friendly side of the fence. The voice cast is excellent, including Bill Nighy, Eugene Levy, Nathan Lane, Alan Tudyk, and Donald Sutherland. Astro Boy even managed to get a decent voice performance out of"
