Robots (2005) review

A good movie

Ever since ‘Toy Story’ became a critical and financial success, CGI animation has been an ever expanding market. Nowadays, you have two giants, ‘Pixar’ and ‘Dreamworks’, but behind those two , you can find a multitude of smaller studios trying their hands at this popular genre. One of them is Blue Sky which is probably the 3rd on the podium, just behind the two giants, above all thanks to the Ice Age franchise. Personally, I really liked ‘Ice Age’ and I was really curious to see Chris Wedge’s following directing effort. Eventually, I went to see it with my wife and my step-kids in the movie theater and I thought it was actually pretty good. Indeed, it really looked gorgeous, much more than ‘Ice Age’ which had a rather minimalistic animation style. Here, there were many impressive details and they created all these amazing daft robots. Furthermore, there were also some impressive action scenes (the best one being the travel through the city with Rodney and Fender). The only issue was that the story was a little too pedestrian but I thought it was still entertaining enough. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a smashing success at the box-office, especially compared to the huge numbers reached by the Ice Age franchise so this flick has always been rather underrated. To conclude, even though it is not really amazing, I think it is actually a pretty good animated feature and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
