A must see film, Robots is very funny, has a great storyline with meaning, and one not to mention stars the voice of my favourite actors - Robin Williams!
I personally have owned this dvd since it came out in 2005 and when I'm looking through all of my films for something to watch, as soon as I see Robots I wouldn't even think twice and just stick it on.
The film guarantees vibrant colour, quality picture and crisp sound. The characters are lovable and they all have different personalities. It's not overloaded with too much music throughout the film but the music that is in the film really brings out the fun in the scenes it's featured.
It's great for all the family, for anyone, any age and any gender, and I can imagine will be loved for years and years to come.
You can buy this dvd as cheap as chips now which is always an added bonus :)
WHAT IT'S ABOUT
Rodney Copperbottom is a young inventor robot who is off to the big city to find and work for Bigweld, the president of a corporation that makes spare parts for robots. However, Rodney discovers that the conniving Ratchet has taken over and wants to introduce upgrades into the market and scrap the spare parts, and any robot that can't afford to buy the upgrades would get melted down and turned into something else! Rodney meets up with a group of other rusty robots and plan to find Bigweld and bring him back to stop Ratchet's dastardly plans.
