This film is about a top robot scientist, who copes with his sons death by building a high tech robot to replace his son. I find “Astro Boy” very well made. It has got an engaging and exciting plot with plenty of action. There are also plenty of emotional elements to touch people’s hearts. The leading character, Toby, is well portrayed. he is such a good boy with a sad background. It is easy to sympathise with his situation, making viewers connect with him and hence be engaged by the story. Visuals are great as the sets are vibrantly composed, making every scene a joy to watch. “Astro Boy” is a fun film to watch. Both kids and adults will all be entertained by it!
