Review: Robots

Fox got the taste, opening their animation studio with Ice Age a few years ago. Upping the stakes with realism (fluid 3D animation with amazing textures, material and reflection rendering), we get to see how robots live. This world leaves a lot to imagination, and hence it’s opportunities galore when it comes to visual jokes. It’s enough for the full hour and a half, but then again, it’s necessary as there’s no real story to speak of. There are no meaty roles to delve into either, with no character worked out beyond the obvious two dimensional properties. With the current most expensive cross advertisement budget of this year, it’s not worth the hype. While I probably won’t remember any of the characters names (unlike the bigger 3D animation hits like Toy Story or Shrek), it fun enough to see once.7½.
