Plot
Smalltown robot and would-be inventor Rodney Copperbottom (voiced by Ewan McGregor) heads for Robot City in the hope of showing off his latest creation to businessman Mr Big Weld (Mel Brooks). But all is not well when he gets there, and he finds himself fighting against the evil machinations of some corrupt robot bosses.


Verdict
Kids will love it and their adult companions will be warmly entertained - but it's far from a computer-animated classic.
