In this underwhelming animated movie, a little kid (voice of Freddie
Highmore, sans his British accent) gets killed by a rampaging robot and
is resurrected as a super robot boy with the boy’s memory. He
must deal with the mixed feelings of his scientist dad (Nicolas Cage)
and a group of plucky human children led by an especially plucky girl
(Kristen Bell) who doesn’t like robots. The whole premise is a
little boring, and it’s not helped by the fact that the animation
here is lackluster. The plot involves some robot fights and some
political garbage surrounding a bland character voiced by Donald
Sutherland. They got Sutherland’s big teeth right, but
that’s about all they did correctly with this venture. It’s
a box office bomb, so there will probably be no more.
