About the Movie

Featuring an all-star voice cast and a groundbreaking visual style that pushes the boundaries of animated filmmaking, Robots is a dazzling, fun-filled feast for the eyes and a riveting good time for all ages! Heading for the big city to pursue his dreams of helping robots everywhere with his talent for invention, a small town robot named Rodney Copperbottom (Ewan McGregor) embarks on the adventure of a lifetime. With the help of his misfit mechanical friends--Cappy (Halle Berry), a beautiful, dynamic and savvy bot with whom Rodney is instantly smitten; Bigweld (Mel Brooks), a master inventor who has lost his way; and a group of misfit 'bots known as the Rusties, led by Fender (Robin Williams) and Piper Pinwheeler (Amanda Bynes). Rodney and his pals take on the evil corporate tyrant Ratchet (Greg Kinnear) to prove that "you can shine no matter what you're made of".

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Will keep adults amused while the kids focus on Robot City's highway system. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: The innovative look is undercut by the predictable story and a drawn-out, overblown ending. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Robots is a corporate product, after all -- but a sleek one. – Ben Kenigsberg, Village Voice, Aug 19, 2005

Fresh: For an animated movie accompanied by its own line of Burger King toys and sugary breakfast cereal, Robots certainly provides a lot of Kafkaesque moments for the kiddies. – Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Customer Reviews

No way...

This movie really doesn't have a plot. Robot saves other robots. YAY. Who cares. It's just my opinion, but, this movie stinks.

Perfect for a Rental!

It's short and sweet, but it's kind of overrated. All you need is one viewing of it, and you'll enjoy it, then forget about it; if you're into slapstick entertainment, rent this movie, and be glad you had a nice little half-hour with your Ipod.

There's Better Animated Films Than This...

I'm not a big fan of Robots. Some things worked, some things didn't. I've just been spoiled by much better films than this. It's a rent, but not a buy.
