Review of Meet the Robinsons
Average Overall Rating: 10
Brian: Technical Rating: 9.9
Gut Rating: 10
My expectation for this movie was very low. Reason one: when I saw the preview I chuckled but figured it to be a renter. Reason two: this was a Disney project and well we all know how bad the recent batch of Disney movies have been. If only I would have remembered-
Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long.
We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we're curious... and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
Keep moving forward.
I must say I was absolutely thrilled and pleasantly surprised by this movie. The story is based on a book by William Joyce A Day With Wilbur Robinson. This is defiantly an owner and highly recommended for both adults and children alike.
The movie is about an orphan boy who grows tired of doing adoption interviews and getting turned down. He has a gifted, creative mind and tinkerer temperament. He decides that the Ideal parent who would want him would be his birth mother so he sets out to learn who his real mother is. He sets out to invent a machine that will unlock his memory of his mother but a mysterious bola hat villain interferes.
- a great uplifting story: The story left me with a warm feeling, motivated and inspired to do and be more at the end something that is sorely lacking in our modern media.
- Good message of keep moving forward, learning from your mistakes, and being mindful of those around you. This was a nice plus especially for entertainment geared toward children. They don't get preachy with the morally uplifting messages but instead show you them in action.
- attention to details and continuity: This was absolutely fun for the second watching to see if they included in little events but since I do not want to spoil any plot points I can not say more to that point. Trust me you will come to the same conclusion after watching.
- Redemption of the Villain character
Dislikes / Concerns
- Kidsey: This movie was intended for a children audience so knowing this I did not take points away that would be silly but I felt it still should be said. Even though it was a bit childish it was still an excellent tale that as an adult I could enjoy.
