The hero of "Robots" is Rodney Copperbottom (voiced by Ewan McGregor). He's been assembled and raised by his parents to believe that anything is possible. He gets a similar idea watching TV where he sees Bigweld (Mel Brooks), the master inventor who rules a giant corporation in Robot City. Bigweld declares his door always is open to any new inventor, so when Rodney is old enough, he leaves his hometown for Robot City carrying his invention. When he arrives in the big city he meets a robot named Fender (Robin Williams), whose body parts fall off at inopportune moments, and his kid sister, Piper (Amanda Bynes), who is a tightly wound ball of energy. But when they arrive at the offices of Bigweld Industries he is shocked to find that the door is decidedly closed. It seems that Madame Gasket (Jim Broadbent) and her shiny robotic son, Ratchet (Greg Kinnear), have somehow pushed Bigweld out. They're plan is to eliminate the manufacture of spare parts that the robots need to keep themselves functioning, and instead produce only expensive "upgrades." So ordinary robots who can't afford these upgrades, find they've become "outmodes," and vulnerable to city sweepers that snatch them off the street and deposit them in Madame Gasket's Chop Shop where they are going to be melted down and turned into shiny new upgrades. So Rodney, Fender and Fender's gang of outmodes set off to challenge the greedy new rulers of the massive corporation. Ratchet's female assistant Cappy (Halle Berry), rebels and joins up with the good guys. There are many marvelous sequences, particularly a wonderful cross-town express that flings Rodney and Fender through the mechanical metropolis like a cross between a monorail and roller coaster. Bigweld also has a great time creating a sea of lined-up dominos. Then there's a climatic battle between the corporation's robotic army and the retooled and refitted robot misfits that explodes into a wonderful frenzied spoof of action-movie battles. It's all a funny, intelligent, and wildly inventive movie that the whole family will undoubtedly enjoy.
