Quotes

[President Stone's airship slowly flies through a hovering campaign screen reading "Prosperity and Peace / Vote Logan" picturing Logan holding a dove, causing it to slowly fall]
President Stone: How can my approval ratings be this low? I was very popular in high school. I've cut taxes for some very influential friends. What more do people want?
General Heckler: We're trackin' an unidentified object flyin' over Metro City, sir.
President Stone: The Surface dwellers are firing at us? Oh, this is what I've been waiting for! Declare war on them! ...

Crazy Credits

After the end credits, a card stating "When in Hong Kong, visit Imagi Studios" The art is the same classic style as the opening, with a tram touring a back lot. This is much like what Universal studios did at the end of their films. See more »

I don't know who said they thought this was a Rip-Off of Pinnochio but it isn't and never was. I don't know why people insist on taking movies and trying to find other movies "they ripped off". For me as a kid it was one of my favorites and every time my 11 year old grandson comes over we watch one of the old B&W episodes I have on DVD. I took him to the theatre to see this just me and him and we were both like a couple of kids.(I'm 55) I'm not going to spoil it for anyone that has not seen it but I believe it is a great family movie, or at least one you can let your child watch without supervision. I enjoyed it a lot. My Grandson looks forward to our weekly viewings now with his Grandpa. As a long time ASTROBOY Fan I wish we could figure out if it is one word or two ? All my old stuff the ASTROBOY runs together. Anyway I believe this is a fun entertaining movie and not for all, but give it a try for your kids and grandkids. I think they will enjoy it.
