Critic Reviews

  1. If sheer cleverness were everything, Robots would be the best computer-animated cartoon yet…Yet, unlike the very best CG animation, Robots doesn't quite connect with the emotions and humor for which one yearns in cartoons.
  2. 60
    Though the script is best described as mechanical and it takes a while to get into gear, this computer-generated "reach for the stars" story is a well-calibrated piece of entertainment.
  3. 50
    On a storytelling level, Robots is in dire need of an upgrade.
  4. The visuals are spectacular at times, but the screenplay is trite, intermittently vulgar, and just not funny.
  5. The movie can be funny in fits, but too often the scripters go for the obvious and uninspired.
  6. Reviewed by: David Edelstein

    The visuals have so much intrinsic motion that it's too bad Robots is oppressively rollercoasterish.
  7. The story fails to really engage on any level save the kinetic.
  8. In the end, though, Robots is hollow and mechanical, an echo chamber of other movies and an awkward attempt to turn the intrinsically scary sensitive-robot theme into something heartwarming and cute.

    A funny, hilarious adventure that looks visually amazing, with a decent storyline, and has such a great chase scene, and a great battle scene.A funny, hilarious adventure that looks visually amazing, with a decent storyline, and has such a great chase scene, and a great battle scene. Actors like Robin Williams steals the show and are given funny things to say. Overall Robots is funny, charming, and such a delight to watch. Full Review »
