It starts out as and animated version of Real Steel with robot fights, followed by the introduction of a Scooby-Doo-like quest, but not before they throw in a bit of Pixar-like emotions to set everything up. And then away she goes – a great action movie for kids of all ages!
It is paced well, with beautiful visuals, and keeps you entertained throughout. And once you accept the many, many borrowed themes as nods rather than rip-offs, they are quite fun. Iron Man, Planet of the Apes, How To Train Your Dragon, The Avengers, The Iron Giant, this movie borrows from them all. Also the combination of East-meets-West works well – the movie takes place in San Fransokyo, basically heavily merging Japanese architecture and ethnicity into San Francisco.
The movie is primarily an action flick, with various Disney life lessons about friendship, teamwork, and dealing with grief thrown in – just enough to make it interesting, not so much as to lose the kids along the way. Take it as light entertainment and it is an excellent way to spend 90 minutes with the family!
