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

Mar 15, 2005

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.

Mar 14, 2005

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.

Mar 11, 2005 | Full Review…

As miraculous as the setting is and the realization of Wedge's vision, the story fails to really engage on any level save the kinetic.

Mar 11, 2005 | Full Review…

The innovative look is undercut by the predictable story and a drawn-out, overblown ending.

Audience Reviews for Robots

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.

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.

The animation in this robot adventure is a beauty to behold. There is so much detail, so many breath taking long shots, lovable characters and a lot of gags that work great. Add the usual amount of movie quotes and the somewhat expected plot points and you may not exactly get the most surprising comedy ever made, but still one that leaves you with a broad smile on your face. The creators just know exactly what buttons to push with their audience. You can either object to that or have a great time with this family friendly adventure.
