Critic Reviews of "Astro Boy"Philadelphia InquirerJuly 06, 2010
Like its supersonic, jets-in-his-feet hero, the movie itself feels totally robotic.Orlando SentinelJuly 06, 2010
The animation bar has been raised, and not just by Pixar. Poor little Astro Boy hasn't a prayer of clearing it.Time OutFebruary 05, 2010
Bowers's play-it-straight attitude towards the material combined with the crisp, if unspectacular, animation doesn't allow 'Astro Boy' a moment to bob its head above the ever-swelling digimation pack.At the MoviesOctober 26, 2009
I just felt like this was a mistranslation -- almost trying to combine the slightly sinister, cold world of Japanese anime with the warm, sentimental, fuzzy, bouncy world of Hollywood kid animation.New York Daily NewsOctober 23, 2009
David Bowers' retro-cool update on the titular icon looks so great, it may take a while to notice it's a clunky political parable wrapped in a tonally confused fairy tale.Los Angeles TimesOctober 23, 2009
There's very little that the filmmakers haven't borrowed here, making Astro Boy feel as copied as its title character.American ProfileSeptember 30, 2011
He may be a reconstituted robot, but this little cyber-kid's got some real heart.Cinema CrazedFebruary 07, 2011
A charming and entertaining animated science fiction adventure that doesn't club us over the head with sensory overload...ComingSoon.netDecember 28, 2010
There is quite a bit of solid craft at work in Astro Boy ... but it feels rushed, ill-prepared and derivative. And that's because it is rushed, ill-prepared and derivative.Cinema AutopsyJuly 06, 2010
A suitably fun and entertaining hero for a new generation.Observer (UK)July 06, 2010
He's a cross between Superman and Pinocchio, but carrying a whole movie on his back in the absence of serious graphic invention proves too big a task.Bullz-Eye.comJuly 06, 2010
While Astro Boy might not exude the kind of originality we're used to seeing in Pixar films, it makes up for it with plenty of humor and charm.
