Amazingly BETTER than expected
I just came from an advance screening of Astroboy where I dutifully took my kids at 10 am to watch “this” thinking that if I was lucky I would be able to doze off for a few minutes during the movie. Boy, I couldn’t! The story was captivating from the beginning. Yes, it was very directed at kids, you know, the far off humour and such, but when I saw Toby, the genius’ “kid”, I felt that the movie was after all NOT just a Pinocchio rip-off where an old man made a robot-boy because he was bored or lonely… the reasons behind the creation of Astroboy were tragic and even mature. Of course, if you are a manga aficionado, you may be thinking “duh! that’s how’s supposed to be”, but I am NOT. I barely watched a show now and then when I was a kid (I’m 36 years old… too young for Astroboy), so I wasn’t really aware of the story. So I thought, well, this development has to be a fluke inherited from the original story, from then on it should go downhill… but it did NOT. The story is full of tragedy, though decisions that if you think them through you can even understand (like a father understanding that memories cannot truly replace his son), and redemption that may be obvious to superheroes experts, but are very well exposed to a new generation of kids that will witness a clear fight between good and evil (positive and negative forces) adorned with an excellent and adequate portion of comedy. Not just a kid’s movie, but a movie that I will surely watch again when my kids “force” me to buy it and to watch it with them dozens of times. Go, Astro!
I watched the first half of this movie on the laptop and then browsed the internet while the second half played on without me.
You will find that the beginning of the movie does not match the 1980s story development…I have not watched the 1963 series to see if there are any differences between the series.
I really did not appreciate the “joke” about one of the characters committing suicide. One of the Ice Age movies had characters yelling “jump!, jump!” in it too which led to me turning it off in the first 5 minutes. I thought cartoons of this era were always supposed to have an overlying message the watcher was supposed to look for and then it is confirmed at the end of the story.
To continue with the corrupt message, the whole plot was to stop robots for being destroyed. There was one scene where they destroyed a robot and it was made in to a total joke. Then there was a long scene where Astro Boy is killing robots left, right, and centre in some sort of attempt to stop robots from being killed? I didn’t get it. Perhaps the intent was to be mindless entertainment but that was not mission of the cartoon I grew up with.
