Astro Boy 2009

24 Oct

Set in futuristic Metro City, Astro Boy is about a young robot with incredible powers created by a brilliant scientist in the image of the son he has lost. Unable to fulfill the grieving man’s expectations, our hero embarks on a journey in search of acceptance, experiencing betrayal and a netherworld of robot gladiators, before he returns to save Metro City and reconcile with the father who had rejected him.

An adaptation of the first anime ever created.

Now showing in theaters.

OB: Not really an Astro Boy fan but I watched the animated series before. I’m curious to watch this movie because they said that they used amazing CGI here. Let’s hope for a good watch!
