Set during the peak of Cold War paranoia, the first film from the director of The Incredibles tells the story of a kid who establishes a close friendship with a giant robot that fell from space.
“¡Su-per-man!”, says the iron colossus, and assume Kryptonian’s pose. That instant in Brad “The Incredibles” Bird’s animated film works as a nice and loving press that comprises the sci-fi and fear from the ‘50s (the time when the film is set), the Fleischer’s classic animation, and both epic and a kind sense of the connection between characters he distilled from Steven Spielberg’s E.T.. The fable of a kid and his robot has (sadly) become an exception, due to Pixar and its imitations. The theme now returns featuring new scenes that stay on the course of its warm instincts, invincible ideas (everything is in 2D, except for the Selenite giant in CGI), and a stainless will to captivate us, the way only cinema can.
