Astro Boy Movie

Contains spoilers


I went to see Astro Boy today. Being a fan of Astro since my childhood I had high expectations for this film. surprisingly enough, although being Americanised it was a pretty good movie! I actually found the gags to be funny and Astro's fight scenes to be pretty cool especially the Robot Games scene. I guess this is to replicate the arc of Astro's original heritage when he was sold to the circus.

But I think I would have enjoyed the movie alot more if I didn't have an annoying kid behind me yelling throughout the movie and bawling when Astro was brought back to Dr Tenma to be deactivated,

"NO ASTRO YOU CAN'T DIE!!!!"

The movie was tops and yep I am even more tempted to buy that figure that I posted earlier now! Although having a very Americanised theme it is actually good not like some bad examples that have came out as of late ....cough...cough.... Dragonball Evolution. However the scene where Astro brings a crippled Metro City to safety onto the surface world so reminded me of Superman Returns to me it didn't seem too original!

Overall I did enjoy the film and shall wrap up this review by giving it a three and a half star rating out of five.
