Movie Review: Robots

Even though it's a kid's movie, I really enjoyed this movie. There's enough wiz-bang eye candy in this film to fill three movies. It was made by the folks that made Ice Age, and let me tell you, they give Pixar a run for their money and may even exceed them with this one. The attention to detail is phenomenal. I thought the voice acting was really good, although Robin Williams was a little over the top, but that's what you get when he's involved. The film centers around Rodney Copperbottom and his quest to follow his dream making inventions for master inventor Bigweld (Mel Brooks). Leaving his hometown to go to the big city, Rodney meets new freinds and an enemy named Ratchet (Greg Kinear), who has overthrown Bigweld and plans to eradicate the older robots for financial gain. It's up to Rodney and his gang of Rusties to save Robot City! I give this film ****1/2 out of *****, it was much better than I anticipated and a great film for kids and adults.
