The movie's admirable theme, that there are things more important than profit, comes across under the virtuoso visuals that peak when endless falling dominos turn into a veritable ocean of the little black blocks being surfed by a robot.

A computer-generated animated adventure featuring few product placements, which is quite a departure from the norm for such children's fare.

... in a world populated by living machines, not a single soul can be found...

Priceless special effects of the cast talking about doing the voices of these mechanical 'bots with a heart...

Although Robots has great animation, wonderful visual invention, and a few clever jokes, it has no compelling characters or story to hold them together.

"Robots" is fraught with silly one-liners, plot contrivances and predictable solutions. There's nothing for mature minds except toilet humor.

If only they had taken another year to create a story worthy of the design!

Does not suffer from Shark Tale syndrome; instead a good story with a good message and great performances.

The story holds it back from the "classic" status... All the same, Robots is cute and colorful. Kids will love it and parents will be entertained enough not to mind.

Far more interested in yelling 'look what we can do!' than in developing any of its characters or livening up its recycled story.

The film is very imaginative and you need to see it several times to appreciate the humor.

Mechanically solid, and that's all most youngsters will care about.

This giddy exposition is polished in its nostalgic atmospheric look but has been assembled with the simplistic precision of piecing together a Tonka toy truck
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Cleverly clanky and colorful.

The subject of robots is reduced to a cute story rather than being motivated by a substantial theme.

A technically fine looking yet dull-as-drill-bits movie whose busy animation creates 90 minutes of chaos onscreen.
| Original Score: C-

An innate awareness that generating underarm faux flatulence is difficult when you're made of metal, but not impossible, is just the spirit we need to see more often.
