Astro Boy is visually appealing, which kids will enjoy, but the story is a darker than you might expect. But then this is a Japanese story which explains a lot: namely that slightly bizarre things will happen for no apparent reason. For instance some of the characters seem to change their personality without any explanation which is a bit of a jolt.

The voices were great. Nicholas Cage and Donald Sutherland both have distinctive voices and add depth to the characters.

Based on the reviews I was hoping for something much better than this. It’s certainly not on the level of most of the Pixar films. And it isn’t the best animated movie of the past few months either – Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs gets that distinction. But fortunately it isn’t bad either.
