Synopsis Osamu Tezuka's classic character finds a home on the silver screen with this CG-animated film. Freddie Highmore (THE SPIDERWICK CHRONICLES) voices Astro Boy, a robot who is a disappointment to the man who created him to replace his dead son. Astro Boy leaves his home in the high-tech Metro City and has an incredible adventure, but he must return to save both his relationship with his father and the citizens of Metro City. ASTRO BOY also features the voices of Nicolas Cage, Donald Sutherland, Nathan Lane, Billy Nighy, and Eugene Levy.The animation fuses Tokyo-pop bright cartoonishness to a sleek big studio style...3 stars out of 4 -- ASTRO BOY is better than most of its recent competitors...[Director David Bowers] nicely blends Eastern and Western animation styles for this CG outing, giving the movie a zippy, retro style that's nicely in tune with its Space Age origins.The voice talent is snappy, and there are some funny one-liners from Nathan Lane, Bill Nighy, Kristen Bell and Donald Sutherland.3 stars out of 5 -- [V]ery funny, action packed and pithy.[W]hen Astro becomes a robot gladiator, the movie turns happy demolition derby, and the virtuoso collisions just keep on coming. -- Grade: B[I]t's inspired by the beloved 1960s television cartoon of the same name, created by Japanese manga/anime icon Osamu Tezuka.3 stars out of 5 -- Fun, colourful and full of action...
