  1. While it is a spectacle of animatronics, digital graphics and other special effects, the actors are never overwhelmed by them as personalities.
  2. 70
    A short, meaningless blast of fun from Disney.

    There's something for everyone in this 70-minute special effects frolic, and lovers of the cartoon will find the movie relatively faithful to its animated predecessor.
  4. 38
    The plot was an arbitrary concoction.
  5. Gadget instead ends up as another mindless, noisy thrill ride that gorges its audience on bright effects and leaves it queasy from overconsumption.
  6. A downright dumb movie that, with its breathless pace, lack of character development and uninventive gags, might be torture for even the kids to sit through.

    A new standard for wretched excess is established by Inspector Gadget, a joyless and charmless disaster in which state-of-the-art special effects are squandered on pain-in-the-backside folly.

    Inspector Gadget was and still is one of my favorite cartoons from the 80s.
    There has been a lot of remakes and follow ups including movies
    (the movies sucked by the way).
    Nothing comes close to the original series from, i beleive 1983.

    Please, Disney. Stick with your animations, not preposterous reboots of inane TV series.
