Robots (2005)



Critic Consensus: Robots delights on a visual level, but the story feels like it came off an assembly line.

Robots is a corporate product, after all -- but a sleek one.

There's no story here. It has a kind of an interesting look. It's sweet and it's just not funny at all. The jokes are very tired.

Robots is more than a load of spare parts, but there are some sprockets and rivets missing.

Moves along at an entertaining, if increasingly familiar clip.

Audience Reviews for Robots

After finishing Robots I felt it was entirely reliant on its extremely impressive animation becuase the plot was far to thin and not particularly interesting. But what saved the film for me was the quite funny voice of robin williams who pretty much steals the show. Essentialy Robot's is good from a technical level but is instantly forgettable.

Robots may not be the best that the people at Blue Sky have done, but its still an entertaining romp of a film for kids and adults alike. Sure the comedy is hit or miss, and some of the film has some slow and stupid moments, it still makes up for it with its characters, CG, and its voice acting. The cast for this film is hug, Ewan Mcgregor, Jim Broadbent, Amanda Bynes, Robin Williams, Harland Williams, Drew Carey, Greg Kinnear, the list goes on, I don't think I've ever seen an animated film with such a huge cast, and they all do fantastic jobs as these characters.
