Movie: Astro Boy

During the end of December I watched Astro Boy .  Its an OK movie, the movie synopsis sounded good and it turned out alright.  This is an animated story about a future earth that gets trashed and a city decides to literally uproot itself and float above the ground to isolate and protect its citizens.  A scientist designs an advanced robot model to help protect the city and the president asks for too much, blah, blah, son dies, replace son with really advanced robot, insert rare energy source, doesn’t like fake robot son, robot son runs away, blah, blah, robot son comes back to help city and save the day!  If you already don’t know or can’t tell, I don’t like Nicholas Cage (no link, I don’t like him and I don’t want you to look him up).  Even his voice drove me nuts in this one… Deep Thought: At what point with artificial life have a consciousness (or at least one that humans consider a consciousness)? Likes: Robot Boy not knowing he has powers, junk yard robots, the RRF Dislikes: putting junk somewhere you can’t see it (that’s not responsible for an advanced group), bad leaders (the Metro City President and his staff) It was OK and entertaining, I’m giving it a 5/10 not great, but not bad.
