  • Purists should have a field day enumerating the differences between the original "Astro Boy" and this high-gloss reimagining. Someone has to. show more

  • There are tiny glints of humor and intelligence at work, and the action and animation rockets along slickly and stylishly. But unlike the protagonists of almost any and all of the Pixar titles, Astro Boy's namesake lacks even an iota of soul. show more

  • Looks so great, it may take a while to notice it's a clunky political parable wrapped in a tonally confused fairy tale. show more

    Oh, ASTRO BOY! Fills that number one requirement I ask of any motion picture. ENTERTAIN ME! Sort of an updated version of the Pinocchio storyt. Fun special effects, emotional story line and, come on...look at Astro Boy himself. Adoable CGI creation caputing the emotion of a real boy. Pay close attention to President Stone's've gotta love his expressions! Really a feel good movie..
