Big budget CGI animated version of the cult Japanese cartoon, in which a scientist creates a robot duplicate of his late son that goes on to defend the city against various mechanical monsters and other evil doers. The animation's nice enough but the movie never quite finds its "tone," as it constantly goes back and forth between slapstick action comedy and emotional drama. My kids enjoyed it and I got a few chuckles from it but I doubt there will be any repeat viewings.

A definite "overlooked" gem, I can't compare it to the manga/anime its based on, but I CAN say as a standalone movie, this movie was very enjoyable. Actually has a very sad premise which I will NOT reveal here (so don't ask) for a "kid's" movie. A warm, touching story similar to Pinocchio combined with lots of action sequences will keep the kids (and adults...like ME) happily entertained!
