Audience Reviews for Tobor the Great
This is one of those movies which makes robots seem less scary and more like friends. I usually don't like that, but I think this movie is fun anyway.More
I was actually surprised by how much I liked this, childrens b-sci-fi Solid story, pretty clever and highly entertaining. The acting is less than spectacualr but thats to be expected given what this is. A little too corny at times, but all in all an easy movie to sit through and pretty good times.More
