Astro Boy (2009)

Directed: David Bowers
Cast: Charlize Theron, Freddie Highmore, Eugene Levy.
Genre: Animation

Plot: Astro Boy must save Metro city from an invention gone horribly wrong.

Metro City is a technically supreme, above the clouds, adobe of the rich and powerful – a place bottom dwellers long for. The movie begins some time before Astro Boy’s origin and shows in detail the reason of his creation. A celebrated Metro City scientist creates Astro Boy as a replica of his dead son. 

Circumstances lead to Astro Boy being cast away of the city. Down below he makes friends with other cast aways who are either lost humans or rejected/obsolete robots.
In time Astro Boy teams up with his friends to save the city which rejected them all.

Nothing unique about the story but it is well made and brings out some pleasant emotions.
