Meet the Robinsons
Think your family's weird?
In this animated adventure, brilliant preteen inventor Lewis creates a memory scanner to retrieve his earliest recollections and find out why his mother gave him up for adoption. But when the villainous Bowler Hat Guy steals the machine, Lewis is ready to give up on his quest until the mysterious Wilbur Robinson shows up on the scene, whisking Lewis to the future to find the scanner and his mom.
About as generic as you can get.
Meet The Robinsons is another one of those Disney movies where they were making what felt like a very awkward transition from their traditional animation style to the newer fangled CGI animation style that all the kids seems to be enjoying much more these days. Even though it had only been one year since Chicken Little Disney took a huge leap in the style and it looked much better.
Still the animation wasn't the thing that Chicken Little wasn't as good as it could of been, I thought that the animation was fine, much like I do here with Meet The Robinsons. The main problem they both have is that the script and screenplay for both movies needed one more…
Decent funny parts, a more complicated story than usual and a dinosaur upset with its tiny arms. Worth a watch for that moment alone.
Meet The Robinsons is a good one, but it's just shy of being a very good movie. For every really strong point, there's something holding it back a bit, it feels like it was made with a lot of heart but ironically not by the greatest minds around.
As a baby, Lewis was left at the orphanage by his mother, and ever since that day he has been a bright and unusual orphan boy longing to find out why she abandoned him. His mind works overtime to invent gizmos and gadgets, and he believes he can build a machine that will tap into memories for the local science fair. But suddenly another young boy warns him about the dangerous man…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Una buena historia, de gran manufactura y ya sabe, directa para su target, chavales y claro, adultos.
Mejor un pasado difícil y dramático que garantice un futuro prometedor.
Really great family comedy with a wonderful message, inventive animation and engaging characters. I especially love Wilbur Robinson and his mom Franny. But my one problem with this movie is that when it gets dark, it gets really bleak and depressing and that takes some of the joy out of it. But overall it's very cute and unexpectedly hilarious.
watched on a whim during a pre-packing binge and was charmed and genuinely weirded out despite the awkward, awkward animation!! also bowler hat guy's animation was PUH-RETTY DELIGHTFUL!! basically lots of a little shining moments in a movie that's really kind of awkwardly formed? i guess
Watched it with the kids. My nephew was enthralled. It's completely predictable, the story plots you could see coming from a mile away. Even with that, it was still a very enjoyable watch. It's cute, good for kids. The villain is absolutely the best, that character was hysterical.
