Yesterday, we brought our kids to the cinema to watch Astro Boy. The poster looked cute and my kids didn't want to watch Christmas Carol because it looked scary. Geez! Honestly, it was a really nice and entertaining movie. Even the animation looks superb!
It's about a genius boy who was too curious, wanting to know about a new project his scientist dad was about to launch for the president. He managed to sneak into the lab to preview the launch but it had gone wrong. He was trapped on the wrong side of the lab and vanished when they tried to stop the disaster from getting worst. The distraught dad decided to replicate his son, using the DNA from his missing son's hair, and Astro Boy was born.
The only part I didn't get it was:
1) The first disaster, which happened when they merged the red core and blue core, created a blast which had absorbed his son, making him vanished.
2) There was another merger between the red core and blue core towards the end, and the blast had spitted out the president which was absorbed earlier.
Why hadn't the blast spitted out the son then?
Hmmm... probably I was too tired and confused. Anyway, great movie to watch with your kids!
