Entertainment Weekly
Zippy, enjoyable sci-fi slapstick jamboree.
Robots goes for a color scheme that is cool, muted, instantly aged. Director Chris Wedge wants the eye to concentrate on the gags he and his writers (including veteran comedy craftsmen Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel) have stuffed into the film.
It's meant as high praise to say that, very early in Robots, the extraordinary starts to seem perfectly ordinary.
Jim Broadbent is the wild card in the cast; he screeches and growls his way through Madame Gasket's lines in the best traditions of British drag.
Cluttered as it is colorful, Robots is a visual delight.
The A.V. Club
The amiable but thin comedy Robots does have a little more going on, but not quite enough to make a difference, although it looks good enough to distract viewers from that fact for a while.
Dallas Observer
Robots doesn't rely on being current, which will ultimately render it as timeless as any great fable. At its center is a big, beating heart.
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.
L.A. Weekly
On a storytelling level, Robots is in dire need of an upgrade.
The visuals are spectacular at times, but the screenplay is trite, intermittently vulgar, and just not funny.
