Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Like a lot of movies, Astro Boy has been designed to function on different levels and serve different audiences, but in this case these multiple meanings and points of address have created a confusion of tone. – Manohla Dargis, New York Times, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: There's very little that the filmmakers haven't borrowed here, making Astro Boy feel as copied as its title character. – Glenn Whipp, Los Angeles Times, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Awesome. Truly. – Amy Biancolli, San Francisco Chronicle, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Osamu Tezuka's groundbreaking 60s anime series gets a stylish CGI update in this sci-fi animation. – Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010

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!
