Great family movie; a little "poetic" licence with the original comic book character but a worthwhile purchase at this price for a rainy weekend afternoon.

The debut on the Sky Movies channel(s) was last Friday; still playing until the schedules change this Friday.



Excellent movie.


Great Film.

Billie Lou Watt died in 1977.

Or did you mean Candi Milo was your & your son's preferred voice actor?



I was expecting to hate this as an overly Americanised version of Astro Boy, but i was pleasantly surprised. Excellent AV on the disc too, but it contains probably the most pointless extra of all time - "Getting the Astro Boy Look". Basically sticking as much gel into various kids' hair as possible and filming it.

if your little one is into robots, and good vs evil fighting then this is cool.

This is my little boy's absolute favourite film. If you feel its a good price then I'd recommend
