Page 2 of 7
March 10, 2013
The robot gives an ironic twist to Isaac Asimov's "Three Laws of Robotics", and the movie is highly enjoyably for three quarters of the way.
March 10, 2013
Explores in subtle and heartbreaking ways how memory becomes a defining part of who were are and where we're going.
March 9, 2013
Often moving and deeply personal, Robot & Frank is a rewarding - if often underdeveloped - antidote to the plethora of loud and overblown movies that tackle the theme of technology's role in our futures
March 8, 2013
The film tries to say something coherent about important issues such as the descending darkness of old age but misses the mark with most of them.
March 8, 2013
A warm drama that drifts into light, goofy comedy, this film is too slight to be a classic, but its subtly sharp-edged script holds our interest and gives the cast something to work with.
March 8, 2013
A small but perfectly formed tale with plenty to say about the nature of friendship.
March 8, 2013
The pair's low-key crime spree provides some gentle suspense, but it's the developing friendship between the grouchy ex-thief and the robot that will beguile viewers most.
March 7, 2013
Despite the amusing premise this isn't funny, moving or eventful enough to merit a trip to the cinema.
March 7, 2013
Robot & Frank does not quite deliver a killer punch, but it's an engaging, humane fantasy.
March 7, 2013
Frank Langella forms an engaging double act with a piece of moulded metal alloy in Robot & Frank.
March 7, 2013
Here's a film with a premise that could have played horrendously in the wrong hands.
March 7, 2013
A fairly cheap trick towards the denouement aside, this is cutely observed, thoughtful work.
March 7, 2013
Robot and Frank were electric. The rest? Sheepish.
March 6, 2013
Enjoyable, well written and superbly acted comedy drama that cleverly blends buddy movies, Sci-Fi flicks and caper pictures into an emotionally engaging film about old age.
March 6, 2013
Frank Langella subtly provides the heart and soul as the crafty Frank, a game retiree whose disreputable inclinations take the story in a pleasingly unsentimental direction - think Wall-e meets The Thomas Crown Affair.
March 6, 2013
Frank Langella plays former cat burglar Frank and the 75-year-old actor holds the entire film together with his screen integrity.
March 4, 2013
An ageing Frank Langella and a disembodied Peter Sarsgaard make for an unexpectedly dynamic double act in this refreshingly unsentimental geriatric drama. Robust and frank.
March 3, 2013
Jake Schreier's first feature is a slight story - it's maybe something that could have turned up in an episode of the Twilight Zone - but it's also tender and rather charming.
March 3, 2013
Forget the sci-fi trimmings and sentimental pay-off - this is a gleefully subversive character study of a charming but unapologetic rogue.
February 17, 2013
It carefully exceeds expectation, helped in no small measure by Langella's wily, wistful lead.
