FRANK & ROBOT is a poignant tale of man and machine
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 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
Robot and Frank were electric. The rest? Sheepish.
January 7, 2013
Ultimately, it feels as though the filmmakers have settled for the soft option one too many times, and the result is a pleasant but unmemorable watch.

The final twist is a little forced, but otherwise the actors ensure that the fanciful plot stays grounded in recognisable emotions -- and Langella and Sarandon have more romantic chemistry than most screen couples at any age.
August 31, 2012
"Robot & Frank" hits all the right notes - romantic, fantastic, tragic and sweet.
August 30, 2012
Langella ... is tremendous.

It may not seem like an even playing field pitting an actor as powerfully intense as Frank Langella opposite a robot, but that's the game plan behind the waywardly endearing, slightly futuristic fantasy Robot & Frank.
August 24, 2012
Much of Robot & Frank is (frankly) resistible, including the climactic narrative twist, but there is also a likeable oddness that transcends the sentimental contrivance.
August 24, 2012
An endearing movie about a human and his mechanical new buddy.
August 24, 2012
Just about the time that Robot starts to grow on his curmudgeonly client, so may this movie -- a sci-fi fantasia that's surprisingly sweet and old-fashioned -- win over any skeptics.
August 23, 2012
Turns out to be a hard, funny and realistic movie about the future.
August 23, 2012
Charming, playful and sly, it makes us believe that a serene automaton and a snappish human being can be best friends forever.
August 23, 2012
The key to making all of this come together is Langella, who effortlessly conveys the complexity of Frank's anger and confusion even when playing a scene for laughs.
August 23, 2012
A small, sweet character study that affords Frank Langella another opportunity to shine.
August 23, 2012
"Robot & Frank" is the sort of undernourished, underpopulated production that indie fans must all too frequently settle for. It's a theatrical feature hell bent for home video.
August 23, 2012
"Robot & Frank" isn't sure whether it's a comedy or drama, buddy movie or sci-fi fantasy, family melodrama or social satire.
