Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: There's very little that the filmmakers haven't borrowed here, making Astro Boy feel as copied as its title character.
Fresh: Awesome. Truly.
Rotten: David Bowers' retro-cool update on the titular icon looks so great, it may take a while to notice it's a clunky political parable wrapped in a tonally confused fairy tale.
Fresh: Osamu Tezuka's groundbreaking 60s anime series gets a stylish CGI update in this sci-fi animation.
This is a big kid movie too.
Verry good movie! I have been watting for this one to come out. Good for young and old. Buy it you will need to watch it more than once to get all of the background info from it. Just so you understand ck out the color of the boot jets. This might just be one of thows movies that the kids will need to be played over and over untell it drives the parents nuts. (FYI I am 32 and I love this movie)
I remember my dad and me watching the TV series when I was 6 and older, and it brings back so many fun childhood memories. :)
it's a REALLY good movie! The first part is sad but otherwise, my favorite movie!
