You'll love this delightful story. I bought it as much for myself as for my kids. Graphics were supreme.
Based on William Joyce's beautifully illustrated children's book A DAY WITH WILBUR ROBINSON, this lively computer-animated Disney film follows the adventures of Lewis (voiced by Jordan Fry and Daniel Hansen), a young orphaned inventor who is determined to find his birth mother by using a "memory scanner," a device of his own creation. When Lewis meets a boy from the year 2037 named Wilbur Robinson (Wesley Singerman), they begin a charmingly strange time-traveling journey that involves Wilbur's eccentric family, bowler hats bent on world domination, song-and-dance frogs, and a frustrated Tyrannosaurus Rex. Boasting the debut of cutting-edge 3D technology, MEET THE ROBINSONS is helmed by first-time feature-film director Stephen J. Anderson, who also voices numerous characters, including the mustachioed villain, Bowler Hat Guy. (Other notable vocal actors include Angela Bassett, Tom Selleck, Adam West, Harland Williams, and Laurie Metcalf.) ROBINSONS also marks Pixar head John Lasseter's first outing as an executive producer on a non-Pixar movie, resulting in a film that features some of that company's signature energy and wit, but stands on its own outside of that universe. While ROBINSONS' literally all-over-the-place plot can be a little difficult to follow at times, its stunning retro-futuristic visuals and amiably wacky characters easily keep viewers entertained.
This movie is the best use of Blu-ray technology that I have seen yet. An amazing story with the best use of 1080p picture thus far.
The story is an excellent one appropriate for all ages (possible tear jerker at times). Full of laughs and eye candy, Meet The Robinsons gives you all you expect from a family movie. Good with or without the kids.
The movie is about a boy named Lewis growing up in an orphanage with dreams of finding his real mother. A talented and ingenious inventor, Lewis invents a machine that displays your forgotten memories. With the potential to change the future of the human race, Lewis sets off on an adventure with his friend, Wilbur to prevent an Evil "Bowler Hat Guy" from causing great harm to everyone's outcome.
The disc comes loaded with plenty of extra features including two video games that can be played through your Blu-ray player with the remote. If you're scepticle about buying the movie, rent it and you'll realize that that money could have been put toward the purchase. I highly recommend this movie to anyone and everyone.
“Meet the Robinsons” was initially based on the book by William Joyce entitled “A day with Wilbur Robinson.” While Disney’s movie focused on a young inventor name Lewis who specializes in innovative inventions. Lewis adventure begins when he meets Wilbur and journeys across time to avert any changes in the space time continuum.
The film pays homage to a number of established iconic movies such as Back to the Future, Star Wars, Casino, and generic Kung-Fu inspired action sequences. “Meet the Robinsons” also tackles a number to issues such as friendship, responsibility, integrity, and the importance of a family unit/parental figure in one’s life.
It’s a great movie and one that every family should take time out to see.
My wife and I saw this movie when it was out at theater this year and we moved it. So when it came out on DVD we purchased it!
If you have not seen the movie it is great - it is fast paced with very few if any slow parts. It will hold a kids attention 0 after all it held mine and I had ADHD!.
The story was a great story in itself with a good message.
The DVD came with great bonus features including deleted sciences with commentary from the director as to why the scenes were deleted.
The DVD also came with 2 full length music videos ("Little Wonders" by Rob Thomas and "Kids of the Future" by Jonas Brothers -it sounded like a remake of an 80's hit called something like "Kids of America") which were awesome to watch.
The only thing I was disappointed in this DVD was the games that came with it - or should I say game. I expected a better game from Disney than a click on this photo to help build the Robinson's family tree. I was expecting something with the flying cars, chasing the villain, etc.
Overall, it is worth the price to purchase the item and fun to watch. A great DVD to have on had this holiday season to keep the kids entertained!
Surprising? Yes! The Promos led us to believe this would be another action-packed animation film with lots of physical comedy for easy laughs and little intellectual content. We were very wrong, my husband and I had to sit again and watch after the kids went to bed. Action packed, lots of laughs - absolutely. But great story line, best I've watched in a while from a kids film. Our whole family loved this! Young to old! (I had to give a little sniffle at the end; sorry - I had to - it was just way too cute!) To quote my favorite line ever uttered by Larry the Cucumber, "I laughed, I cried, it moved me, Bob." This movie rated MUST OWN by the Millers. PS - watch AND LISTEN closely for Tom Selleck! :)
