Hammerman Ikon Film Guide

Director: Chris Wedge, Carlos Sandalha
Cast: Ewan McGregor, Robin Williams, Halle Berry, Greg Kinnear, Mel Brooks

A robot boy moves to the big city to become an inventor in this computer animation from the makers of Ice Age. The film has a wonderful look and more visual gags than you can absorb without a pause button, but it's undermined by a formulaic story (you can do anything if you believe in yourself) and bland characters. Many aspects of the robot world reflect the human world, which doesn't make much sense since the machines have built themselves.
