I was very surprised of how much I enjoyed Astro Boy. With its storyline, cast, and great animation Astro Boy is the perfect family film of the 2009 fall season. Astro Boy is about a robot boy who is built for love by a mad scientist. But, as the president of Metro City wants to capture and take the robot's power, Astro must stop the president and the negative supply awaiting to destroy anything, including Astro. This movie was spellbinding as it was distributed by rookie studio Summit Entertainment, the studio that has brought us the Twilight series. Despite being a family film, it's also a dark and sad film. Not as dark and sad as Where The Wild Things Are, but is sad for reasons I can't explain. Young children might also get scared by the evil robots that try to destroy Metro City and Astro Boy, so kids over the age of 6 may enjoy this film as much as I did. This film also features A list stars such as Nicolas Cage, Bill Nighy, and Nathan Lane. Furthermore, this movie should be seen at any cost with the family, or if you're just a fan of the original Japanese manga from the 50's. Either way, just see or rent Astro Boy and enjoy it with yourself, your friends, or your family. I can almost guarantee you'll enjoy it alot.

Hello viewers of this blog,

Due to recent comments of spam and profanity present from obnoxious kids who think they are the funniest people in the world, I would like to request that the comments posted here are in good taste, meaning that they have no Anti-Semitic remarks, profanity, sexual innuendo, or any insults to myself. You can criticize the review and give pointers on how to make them better, but how about we be adults about this. Ok? Thank you, and have a nice day.
