This is one of those films that I think succeeds really well in entertaining the whole family. It looks like a kids film but there's plenty here to keep adults entertained too.

The story centres around a young orphaned boy, Lewis, who is desperate to be adopted but whose overzealous demonstrations of his not always working perfectly inventions scare many would be families off!

Lewis is also desperate to meet his mother but since nobody ever saw her leave him on the steps of the orphanage nobody knows what she looks like - except Lewis. He is convinced that somewhere in his mind he has an image of his mother locked away and sets about inventing a brain scanning machine so he can find out what she looks like and track her down. This is where the fun really starts as the machine Lewis builds is of great interest to a shady character wearing a rather unusal bowler hat...

Once the adventure kicks off Lewis is whisked away into the future by a new friend who is trying to convinve Lewis of the importance of him finishing his brain scanning machine and, yes, ultimately saving the world!

I don't want to give any more away of the plot, it's not mind bending but some smaller children may be a little confused by the time travel aspect of the plot but I can't see it mattering much as the film has so much to hold their attention.

The picture on Bluray is again simply astounding. In fact this is the cleanest looking film I've ever seen. With the film being computer generated there is no film grain or normal/natural analogue noise in the picture anywhere as it's existed in digital form from the studio to the home. The colours are amazing - everything is so bright and clear and sharp, utterly beautiful.

Maybe not as many jokes for the adults but this is still a great family film.
Image quality is clean and crisp with good colour.
Sound is also clean though did not notice much use of the surround channels. Maybe that's a good sign?!
Rented this and recently my youngest (8) asked if we still had it to watch again, so it must be pretty good.

A quality family film and beautifully rendered too.

But British parents and fans should be aware that the 'US' special editions on 20th Century Fox of both the standard 2D and the 3D issues are REGION A LOCKED - so it won't play on our machines unless they're chipped to be 'all regions' which most aren't.

Plumb for the UK versions instead - and avoid costly mistakes...

I first had the pleasure of watching this film on holiday, and I must say i'm addicted. The surreal and hilarious film about Lewis, the orphan inventor and his adventures in the future when he gets stuck there. The humor is fast, the setting (and the Robinsons themsleves) brilliantly imagined, and the villan is absolutely ace. you can't help but love him and his bowler hat sidekick, Doris. (Yes, you heard me right).
There are some moments of comic genius (just look out for what the frog and T-rex say - it had me in stitches) - but it is a kids film. It blatantly is, and that's what charges it with such energy. It can be enjoyed by anyone.
Not only that, but it's got a few twists in it that you really don't see coming (and a couple you do).
Either way- a throughly enjoyable way to find your inner child :)

"Meet the Robinsons", directed by Stephen Anderson, is an excellent film for kids, and also for the kind of adults that love good animated movies. I am one of them :)

The main character is Lewis, a 12-year old orphan that is a science whiz. Lewis' biggest dream is to have a family of his own, but he hasn't been able to get adopted. When, after a particularly stinging rejection from a prospective family due to an experiment gone wrong, Lewis fails miserably at a science fair, his confidence is crushed and he ready to give up on science. Life has many surprises in store for him, though, among them a trip to the future and tons of new friends, that will teach him that, in order to achieve success, all you really need to do is keep moving forward.

On the whole, I can say that I really liked this quirky and engaging Disney movie. It is a family film with a very good message, that also happens to be lots of fun. Recommended...

There simply isn't enough of this stuff around at the moment. Boys with gadgets, thrilling action, mad inventiveness - and even an ending that shows a more healthy way to resolve conflicts.
And all in glorious blu-ray detail.

Having just watched this film, and just read the review "90 minutes of your life you will never get back", I can completely say with 100% confidence that this movie is a masterpiece in its own rights.

Besides it being a very intelligent, positive and moving piece by Disney, it is an action packed, feel good family movie filled with laughs along the way.

The twists and turns that bring you closer to the end will bring smiles and tears to your face (which I didn't think would), with the ending hiting the nail on the spot... "Keep moving forward"

A definate must watch!!
