New York Post
24-karat stuff, even if it has a soul of tin. With the voices of Ewan McGregor, Robin Williams and Mel Brooks, Robots is a giddy erector-set update of "Toy Story" with a splash of "The Wizard of Oz."

Full of wit, charm and wonder. It's so hilarious, you might blow a gasket.
88
Like "Finding Nemo," this is a movie that is a joy to behold entirely apart from what it is about. It looks happy, and, more to the point, it looks harmonious.

Entertainment Weekly
Zippy, enjoyable sci-fi slapstick jamboree.
75
Robots never stays in the same gear for long, and the abrupt shifts in tone kill the movie's chances of becoming a classic.
75
Philadelphia Inquirer
Cluttered as it is colorful, Robots is a visual delight.
75
Chicago Tribune
Wildly inventive, sweetly subversive.
63
The voice talent behind Robots reads like a who's who of comic actors...But too much reliance is placed on their star power and not enough on an interesting and fresh idea.

New York Daily News
Visually, Robots is fun and imaginative. The wow factor is enhanced in the IMAX version, also opening today.
60
The Hollywood Reporter
If sheer cleverness were everything, Robots would be the best computer-animated cartoon yet...Yet, unlike the very best CG animation, Robots doesn't quite connect with the emotions and humor for which one yearns in cartoons.
30
Wall Street Journal
The video-game sequences are impressive, but you know that a 'toon is in big trouble when its most powerful theme is planned obsolescence.
