Though perhaps it didn't live up to the standards that were held by many Astro Boy fans, this heartfelt anime picture manages to tug on the heartstrings while creating a range of comedic scenarios. Freddie Highmore and Nicholas Cage try their best, but I can't help feeling as though as they were the wrong voice actors to portray such popular figures. Nevertheless, Astro Boy possesses visuals to impress most and characters that will appeal to kids. It has fun theme to it, however teens and adults won't feel as engaged as the movie's target demographic. In the end, Astro Boy is good enough, and it has a simple, well paced plot to please it's younger audiences, and create a tolerable time for it's older ones.
