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