Consensus: Robots delights on a visual level, but the story feels like it came off an assembly line.

Moves along at an entertaining, if increasingly familiar clip.

There's no story here. It has a kind of an interesting look. It's sweet and it's just not funny at all. The jokes are very tired.

Stephen Hunter
Washington Post

As miraculous as the setting is and the realization of Wedge's vision, the story fails to really engage on any level save the kinetic.

Cole Smithey

The movie's admirable theme, that there are things more important than profit, comes across under the virtuoso visuals that peak when endless falling dominos turn into a veritable ocean of the little black blocks being surfed by a robot.

Robots is more than a load of spare parts, but there are some sprockets and rivets missing.

The innovative look is undercut by the predictable story and a drawn-out, overblown ending.

Kam Williams
Princeton Town Topics

A computer-generated animated adventure featuring few product placements, which is quite a departure from the norm for such children's fare.
