Astro Boy

Astro Boy

This westernized, CG-animated take on Osamu Tezuka's 1952 classic looks spectacular with its shiny blue tint and towering, smooth-edged architecture. It manages to stick fairly close to the original's narrative as well, relating the story of a heartbroken scientist (voiced by Nicolas Cage) who tries to bring his dead son back by creating a robotic version of the lost lad (voiced by Freddie Highmore). Unfortunately, the film doesn't quite capture the simple joy and heartfelt emotions of Tezuka's 2-D black-and-white original. Kids will enjoy it, older fans will be a touch disappointed.
