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

Variety
Appropriately for a film about robots, efficiency is the primary virtue of Astro Boy, a well-oiled CG-animated superhero pic that makes up in competence and vitality what it lacks in originality. Full Review

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

USA Today
Though some scenes may be too intense for children, the action is slick, with robot clashes and airborne chases leaving the strongest impression. Full Review
Glenn Whipp
Los Angeles Times
Plays like "Transformers" for tots, a "Pinocchio" story that stays true to its source material's storied past without adding much in the way of interest, outside of some clankingly obvious political subtext that will alienate people of all stripes. Full Review
