Robosapien review

Another film based on a toy robot

Inspired by the titular toy, Robosapien combines CGI and live action with fairly banal results.

Escaping the clutches of a bad-guy bureaucrat (an enjoyably OTT Kim Coates), the ‘bot befriends a science-loving moppet (Bobby Coleman).

Director Sean McNamara has a background in kids’ TV and, sadly, it shows: the overbearing soundtrack, the sledgehammer subtlety with which it tackles ‘issues’.

Though likely to wow only the very young, Robosapien is mercifully short and – a couple of face-palm inducing dance numbers aside – stays just the rightside of insufferable.
