Robots is every bit as visually engaging as the best of the Pixar (or Dreamworks) digitally animated fare. The landscapes are stunning, the characters are intricately formed, there's plenty of break-neck action, and Robin Williams provides a helping of belly laughs. Despite these positive qualities, Robots never seems more than passably entertaining. In fact, it more often resembles the template for a video game (with the interactivity removed in theaters - no doubt that will be restored for the X-Box and PlayStation 2 discs) than a fully realized motion picture. It doesn't take long to uncover the culprit for Robots' lack of inspiration. The pedestrian plot is aimed squarely at five-year olds.
