A good one for the kids. Wasn't quite sold on Nicolas Cage providing Astro Boy's Dad's voice, but everything else worked pretty well.
Great family movie. Takes me back to when I was a kid. It even has some very clever, funny bits.
A really top movie for all. It was great.
The boys loved it and the adults thought it was entertaining too.
This Americanized copy of a great Japanese creation is no relation to The Lion King of Kimba The White Lion.
Sad story not suitable for children
Great adaptation of the original TV anime series. Takes me back to my childhood fantasies
The kids really enjoyed this movie and my son is now (gratefully) an Astro boy fan instead of a Ben 10 fan. Quite sad/scary at the beginning when 'Toby' is vapourised, but my children didn't appear upset at all as this film dosn't seem to go to heavy on the emotions, more the action.
Nicely made cartoon, movie.
Well worth watching many times.
kids found some of story scary but hey kept wanting to watch it again and again
My son and I both loved Astro Boy, however, it's a shame they didn't use the movie from the original sound track.....Astro boy bombs away............
I watched the cartoon on TV as a kid and loved it. I thought this was a very good prequil. Great for the whole family. Don't need to know anything about Astro boy before watching this movie.
Good movie for the whole family, good story line with a happy ending. Highly recommended.
Wow what a movie. I am a kid of 48 and I loved it. Some underlying themes of pollution and loss of loved one, greed vs goodness made this also enjoyable for those not enamoured by the story line. Many of these issues are happening to day....
good story line, good action, good emotion ( yep I cried when the Astroboy was 'resurrected') worth watching
REALLY GOOD QUALITY MOVIE. DVD WAS ENJOYABLE.
Thumbs up from the whole family! 4 year old launched himself around the room pretending he had rocket feet and husband who is an Astroboy fan from way back both loved it! Great family movie!
My children loved this movie.
As a fan of the original series and at the very creation of Anime I could only see improvement but the movie fell short. Bad plot line mixed with annoying characters couldnt lift this to its once great predecessor.
Great movie. The kids loved it and the graphics were fabulous on a plasma.
I have never watched the original's, but I thought this was a great movie, and the kids loved it too!
I loved watching Astro Boy as a child. This is a much more updated version of the show. Gret for all the family. Now I'm going to add the originals to my queue :)
Fantastic movie, my son and i loved it, will be buying this one as you can watch it alot and still dont get boring, excellent kids movie :)
I remember the story of Astro Boy from my childhood, but this was a great modern version. Both my daughter
Kids enjoyed the movie, with a few laughs also.
My kids absolutely loved this movie!! It was really well made : ]
Loved Astro Boy as a kid, loved it now! One for the whole family
More than just an animation with many insightful ideas and issues. It comes to show that being human does not equate to automatic possession of humanity. A wonderful movie that will entertain the kids and enjoyable to the grown-ups.
The script was a little melodrammatic, but it was entertaining. Very good for kids - not so much for adults.
My 4 year old loved this movie and I liked it too.
My kids loved this movie!!! It had them truely captivated = 8 and 10 year old boys. :)
Most five year olds would struggle to sit through this movie. If you are an adult dont bother at all.
Good movie, without taking anything away from the orginal television series. The computer animation makes it more crisp, but i feel it does take a little bit away from what you expect from a classic childrens television show. Astro Boy for a new generation to love.
great classic. differenet having nicholas cage as a voice over
We hadnt watched original series so cant compare the adaptation of the movie. However, my son has watched this non stop over the weekend -- he absolutely loved it!
Really quite cheesy and we just kept waiting for the story to actually start...
Not a complete waste of time but I think childhood Astro Boy fans would be disapointed. Maybe it was just cool because I was little back in the day?
A very solid hollywood product, but not as good as the 1980s or even the 2003 animated versions. Although the voice acting and the scenes are first rate, there is something missing for all of us who were expecting something more akin to the animated series.
Four stars for the fans of the tv-series, but five stars for kids.
If you like adventure,action and a bit of humour in your animated movies, this is well done. Good family movie.
REALLY enjoyed this movie, much better than I expected!
good family movie. Loved it.
