Astro Boy (2003)

Plot: Famed scientist Dr. O'Shay finds a robotic boy in a lab and reactivates it. The robot, dubbed Astro, has a special system called "Kokoro" that gives him human-like emotions. Astro protects his human companions from danger, but he himself is being targeted by the deranged Dr. Tenma -- as well as by people who hate and fear machines... (B+)

Characters: B

Art & Animation: B+

Voice Acting: Dub -- B

Music: A

Objectionable Content: Virtually none

Other: Yeah, it's a kids' show and some parts are dumbed down (especially later, when they decide to bring Astro's "sister", Zoran, into the picture). But overall, the stories are well-done and interesting to watch (especially when they go into Astro's backstory).

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2.5/5
