What a beautifully written movie. From the moment this movie started till the last flicker of light on screen I found myself caught up in the wonder that animated stories of my childhood provided.

Technology has advanced greatly in the past twenty years, especially in the field of animation. I have found that some animated movies spend so much effort on the visual that the storyline falls apart or never makes an impact. This movie will not disappoint in either respect. The animation is top notch, with lifelike characters whose facial expressions and emotions are far more genuine than those of some of the actors we pay to see onscreen. The story itself is a marvelous coming of age tale of a young robot who learns to believe in himself and brings together a mismatched gang of outmode robots to prevent their world from being overthrown by a pair of greedy, self-centred and completely unusual duo.

The diversity of the characters mimics real life, and the message of being happy with oneself is delivered in a colourfully wrapped box with a big red bow.

Notable characters who make the movie worth seeing:

Fender -
Robin Williams (phenominal performance... he has a gift, see this movie for William's alone)
Rodney -
Ewan McGreggor (he lends a perfect voice to this character... giving life to this innocent nieve character)
Tim the Gate Guard -
Paul Giamatti (this guy is just hilarious... playing this tiny little character on a huge power trip)

I even enjoyed the musical score of this movie. This one is definitely a family favourite, and for children of all ages!
