Astro Boy (2009)
« on: July 24, 2011, 07:52:06 pm »

I never bothered to this in the theaters, but I heard a lot of good and bad things when it was out. I try not to really listen to what anyone else says and have it influence me in any way because I like to make my own, unbiased opinion. But there was this little voice in my head that was telling me "it's gonna suck" when I put the DVD in and pushed play. Strange thing, after awhile while watching the movie, I kept asking myself "when is the movie gonna suck?". It never did and further more, I found Astro Boy to be quite charming with a lot of heart. It can be describes as a futuristic "Pinocchio", but it's so much more than that.

There are some really cool set pieces that will have you going "wow", and the animation is pretty damn impressive. Another thing this movie has going for it is the impressive star power of the Cast who do a fantastic job of voice acting here. Anytime I can get my Kristen Bell fix, Live or animated, I'm gonna jump on it. I do get why a lot of people didn't like it, with it being to "kid-friendly". But I for one don't have a problem with it. It's a great one to watch with the family.
