When the world needs saving, he’ll discover he was made for the challenge.
Featuring an all-star cast of voice talent, it’s high-flying adventure that soars to new heights!
I was very interested in seeing this movie when I first started seeing the previews in the theaters because I had never seen the cartoon. Today while watching it, I found myself really enjoying it.
Reasons I enjoyed it: the all-star, voice-recognizable cast; the awesome animation, the gripping origins of how Astro Boy came into being; the likable characters; and the laugh-out-loud humor. After watching the movie, I want to get another dog and name it Trashcan. Even the website is pretty awesome.
