Robots tells the story of Rodney Copperbottom, an aspiring inventor, who travels to Robot City to meet his idol, Bigweld. Along the way he quickly makes a whole gang of new friends, and together they encounter the evil Ratchet. Under the guidance of his mother, Ratchet has taken over Bigweld's company and is denying the other 'bots the spare parts they need. Is Rodney built from the kind of stuff it takes to save the day?
Good looking but with an uninvolving story

One of the things that set Pixar animated films above others is the fact that they can entertain both adults and children, with both enjoying the story and jokes on different levels, the trouble with 'Robots' is that it fails to do this. The actual story and jokes are so weak that the average adult will get bored pretty rapidly, and the characters are fairly bland so as an adult viewer you don't really become attached to them. In reality 'Robots' is a nice visual journey but not much else. Worth renting if you have young kids, but don't expect anything as good as Pixars' previous efforts.
