I would normally keep this to one line, but I have three complaints about this movie and I want to get them out there.

  1. I did not realize, this was partially my own fault, this would be a two hour long commercial for a Disney theme park. It was a good commercial, but still nevertheless a commercial.
  2. While knowing this is a Disney commercial, Hugh Laurie using words like “frick” did not quite create the massive super villain destroying the world motif they were going for.
  3. The relationship between Clooney and the young robot – even keeping in mind that this was a robot – still felt uncomfortable in that final scene together.

All in all, there were good theatrics and good acting from the cast, but those three points listed above plus a weaker story kept me from enjoying the movie. Grade: C-
