DVD Review: Astro Boy
Astro Boy (PG)
IN a future city where robots and humans coexist in a segregated society, a top scientist mourning the loss of his dead son creates a robot boy in his image.
Powered by mysterious “blue energy” the little robot has super-strength, x-ray vision and the ability to fly.
But when the city’s mayor wants to use Astro Boy’s powers for his own corrupt ends, the boy robot is forced to go on the run.
Helped by new human friends, AB hides his real powers, until he must return to Metro City to help his family.
Great-looking CGI adventure with a clunky moral message.
