I love movies, and believe that you should at least watch a movie once, to at least say that you have seen it, you really can’t knock a movie if you haven’t seen it. I like this movie enough I added it my collection to watch it again. I only do that with films I like

great family flick for all ages, well worth veiwing at least once

Astro Boy is a fun and exciting animated film that has a deep interesting story about it. Its about a scientist who builds a robot to replace his dead son; but when the son discovers that he's a robot, he goes out into the world to find his life's purpose. A little boy who's love for science took him further than he could ever use in his young imagination.
-Great at delivering movie expectations and graphics
-The characters all fit into the story well.
-Its colorful with a lot of action
-Kids will like this movie!
Honestly, I was mainly fascinated by the way the main characters hair triangle kept changing sides. ;)
Good movie. Watch it and enjoy.

There are many similarities between this movie and Spielberg's Ai but, I must say, I loved Astro Boy much, much more. Reason is, it delivers the feelings of Astro Boy way better. I felt tears in my eyes towards the end of the movie. I know, it's an animation, but it's that good. Trust me! I recommend it highly.

Astro Boy has been around for a while. Although he is basically unknown in the states, he's been around since the 50's. Originally a manga character who went on to inspire a lot of Japanese comics and animation (the video game character Mega Man is basically a direct inspiration of Astro Boy). And this movie was an attempt to bring this character to a new generation.

The origin story for the character is actually the same. Robotics inventor father, grieving after the death of his son creates a boy robot in his likeness. Boy robot becomes a fighting robot designed to defend mankind from evil. Not exactly heady storytelling, but it works.

There is some obvious political leanings in this movie, but it isn't up front and in your face with it with it. It's used more as a storytelling element. The main crux of it all is a robot fighting bigger robots.

The fight scenes were really fun for the kids who I had put the movie on for. But other than that, the movie fell a little flat for them. Anything involving plot or too much talking, and they would get restless.

But in spite of that they did enjoy the film. I myself thought it was alright myself, but I'm in no hurry to watch it again. It's just a perfectly acceptable reboot of the franchise.

Certainly, if you have kids, then this deserves a chance to come up on movie time rotation. It's worth watching, even if it isn't the best overall.

Astroboy is an interesting movie. I went and saw this movie a few days after it released in theatres. I kinda remember the cartoon as a kid and this helped to relive those memories. Astroboy is a robot that has superpowers and uses them to save people and the world.

Astroboy is a character that dates back to the 1950's when it was created by Osamu Tezuka. Astro is really well known in Japan and there were several of the cartoon series came here to the United States.

The movie follows the story pretty well but at the same time adds a few new things here and there to not just be a copy and paste kind of story.

There are some spoilers ahead:.......

In the manga (or comic) and now Movie is a boy named Toby who dies in an accident and his father Dr. Tenma builds a robot to be just like Toby. The scene may scare some children that are really young but personally they did it tastefully and there are no gory scenes or anything. (For the parents you see a bright flash and his hat is lying on the ground). Alot of parents were upset by this however many movies made by Disney and so forth have had characters die in their movies constantly but people still praise them.

I suppose since it is a young boy they feel that it should not occur but the producers of the film wanted to keep the orgin of Astro as close as possible.

The movie was pretty well done. There's some drama in along with action and that was pretty good. It helped lead into the action sequences instead of being non-stop action or drama. I liked this film since it was something everyone could enjoy. I went with my mom, dad, and 7 year old niece. She really enjoyed it and the whole family wants it on DVD and blu-ray. I do not remember any bad language as well.

Astroboy is a remake of an old, very popular, black and white TV show in Japan.

The movie does a decent job of re-creating the atmosphere of those shows, but more importantly, stands on it's own two feet in it's own right.

It's fast paced, full of action, and has a decent story. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that it suffers from the same problems the original did. It has a very simplistic approach to very real, and complex, problems.

Warning! The following contains spoilers!

In a future where pollution and climate change have driven humanity from Earth's surface to a single city floating above the clouds, a scientist with his priorities out of whack works to create the most powerful weapon of war ever built for an unstable and unerringly stupid politician, and because of it, his precocious son, Toby, is vaporized during the first weapons test. Inconsolable, the scientist thinks he can build a 'perfect' duplicate of Toby: a robot that not only looks and sounds like the boy, but has all of his memories. Inevitably, the scientist eventually realizes that this new Toby is not a perfect duplicate, and is only a constant reminder of his catastrophic failure as a father, and rejects the 'boy' asking his superior "Dr. Elephant" to shut down and disassemble 'Toby'. Confused, betrayed and in fear for his 'life', Toby runs away, and escaping to the surface, which has become the ultimate landfill for the city above. There he get's his 'real' name, Astroboy, after befriending the broken robots and other beings inhabiting the littered surface.
