You know, I tried to find my place in the world. I - I thought I found it, but I guess fitting in can be a lot more complicated than it seems, huh?

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 »
Before going to see Astro Boy I decided to read some of the comments
that were posted here. I read reviews by some who liked the movie as
well as by some who did not like the movie. With an average score of
6.4 I went to see the movie with relatively low expectations although I
got the feeling that those who did not like the movie were mostly upset
about the movie not being "true" to the original TV series and were
having some issues with certain characters reminding them of other
characters such as Pinocchio. Well, I did not see the original TV
series so I did not care whether or not the movie and the TV series
were similar enough. I also did not mind that some of the side kicks
may have had some resemblance to characters from other movies. The
bottom line is that my 5.5 year old and I loved Astro Boy!
