He may be a reconstituted robot, but this little cyber-kid's got some real heart.

A charming and entertaining animated science fiction adventure that doesn't club us over the head with sensory overload...

There is quite a bit of solid craft at work in Astro Boy ... but it feels rushed, ill-prepared and derivative. And that's because it is rushed, ill-prepared and derivative.

While Astro Boy might not exude the kind of originality we're used to seeing in Pixar films, it makes up for it with plenty of humor and charm.

This charming, futuristic family flick has enough firepower to overcome an awkward premise and Nicolas Cage's general creepiness.

You need good villains in a movie. And if they're named "Ham Egg" then all the better.

What makes this peppy kids' film interesting is the human/robot apartheid system that has evolved in the futuristic world that Astro inhabits.

It is a bold and even poignant idea and the movie certainly zips along. It's not in the Wall-E league, but it's well made and inventive.

While a fuel cell or two short of animation's final frontier, Astro Boy capably fills the space between Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius and Wall.E.

Fun, colourful and full of action, David Bowers' 'toon will have little trouble diverting those of a similar age to its perky, wide-eyed protagonist.

The film presents some fairly adult themes in an understandable way, and it's also less cheesy and sentimental than a lot of animated fare. But it still packs in some exciting action sequences and impressive comic relief.

Welded together with parts from similar but superior fare such as WALL-E, Iron Giant and The Jetsons, the much-loved Animé character flies into cinemas for a toon that should just about keep the kids amused.

Sci-fi digimation, whirling round the screen like the furniture in a drunkard's bedroom, whisks up the characters in its tornado.

Most of the side characters feel badly underwritten, although the gifted cast makes the most of them.

February 5, 2010
Although boasting some nifty set pieces despite its lacklustre and cheap-looking computer-generated animation - can't touch the brilliance and storytelling skills of the films that Disney/Pixar and Dreamworks are turning out these days.

There's plenty of exciting action to keep little ones amused and enough clever and funny touches to make sure adults aren't bored either.

David Bowers' stunning CG landscapes... resonate with a chaotic bunch of half-realised ideas left floating in mid-air like Metro City itself. Yet for all the deficit of grounded substance... there is never a dull moment.
