    Peter Hartlaub San Francisco Chronicle

    Robots never stays in the same gear for long, and the abrupt shifts in tone kill the movie's chances of becoming a classic. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    The voice talent behind Robots reads like a who's who of comic actors...But too much reliance is placed on their star power and not enough on an interesting and fresh idea. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    The video-game sequences are impressive, but you know that a 'toon is in big trouble when its most powerful theme is planned obsolescence. show more

    Cluttered as it is colorful, Robots is a visual delight. show more

    Jami Bernard New York Daily News

    Visually, Robots is fun and imaginative. The wow factor is enhanced in the IMAX version, also opening today. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    If sheer cleverness were everything, Robots would be the best computer-animated cartoon yet…Yet, unlike the very best CG animation, Robots doesn't quite connect with the emotions and humor for which one yearns in cartoons. show more

    24-karat stuff, even if it has a soul of tin. With the voices of Ewan McGregor, Robin Williams and Mel Brooks, Robots is a giddy erector-set update of "Toy Story" with a splash of "The Wizard of Oz." show more

    Full of wit, charm and wonder. It's so hilarious, you might blow a gasket. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Like "Finding Nemo," this is a movie that is a joy to behold entirely apart from what it is about. It looks happy, and, more to the point, it looks harmonious. show more
