It is cliché over innovation every time with A.X.L.
October 13, 2018
Intriguing sci-fi thriller that explores what can happen when robots become smarter than humans.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

A.X.L. is let down by a script that's good on science yet bad on characters and story.

When all is said and done, you're left with the nagging question: why didn't they just re-release "Monster Truck" instead?

August 31, 2018
After 2016's Monster Trucks laid a giant goose egg at the box office, what made the folks at Global Road think this similarly themed shaggy mechanical pal tale would fare any better?

Didn't anyone notice that the story made no sense, that it was just remnants of Short Circuit, E.T., WarGames and other better movies, strung together more or less at random?

I could keep going on about just how bizarrely off kilter A.X.L. is, but it's one of those things that you'll either want to steer clear of forever or just experience it for yourself.

August 30, 2018
Like its titular character, A.X.L is a pastiche of familiar parts constructed in a lab, a blend of science-fiction and extreme sports tropes that result in little more than an audition reel for the film's young stars.

It doesn't offer anything new or exciting and it doesn't need to be in a theater. It's just there. You can watch much better family films at home.

August 27, 2018
Pro-STEM twist in often-violent sci-fi boy-and-"dog" tale.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
August 27, 2018
A wholesome boy-and-his-dog adventure and an inoffensive PG trifle.... Meets the basic narrative requirements.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
August 25, 2018
It's utterly forgettable.
Full Review | Original Score: D
August 24, 2018
It's a boy and his dog story with elements of "Pretty in Pink," "Rad" and "The Wraith," and it's those references that kinda make this movie work.
August 24, 2018
A.X.L. feels in desperate need of repairs.
August 24, 2018
Meanwhile, the scientists who lost A-X-L spend half the movie watching these events unfold on a computer screen, doing not a danged thing because they want to see how it all pans out. They are, it must be said, lousy scientists.

By the time he develops rabies and has to be put down out back behind the shed (sorry, wrong boy and his dog story, but you get the point), we simply don't care. (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, Profanity, etc. - also Available)
August 24, 2018
... derivative of Short Circuit while generally lacking charm, surprise, or imagination.
August 24, 2018
What's missing is any genuine personality from the robot (or the human characters, for that matter).
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
August 23, 2018
As cuddly as a Battle Bot, as warm as anything you'd find in the Craftsman section in your neighborhood Sears.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
August 23, 2018
While familiarity shadows the endeavor, "A.X.L." gets by on little blasts of excitement and the core relationship between a meek young man and the robotic war dog he befriends.
Full Review | Original Score: B
