At the beginning, I have to say, I was very put out with Hugh Jackman’s character Charlie Kenton. Charlie might be nice on the eyes, but you immediately see him for what he is, s self-centered, manipulative, unreliable and completely wrapped up in robots and winning.
Than you meet his son, I’m still put out with Charlie, but as events progress I start to forget Charlie and get wrapped up in everything else which gets me through the movie until at the end I’m weaving and bobbing around in my seat. So, did I like it, at the end, I would say yes but the movie made me work for it.
P.S I love the robot, his name is Atom. The boy is Max.
