The Adventure of A.R.I.: My Robot Friend (2021)


3/10: Barely enough to fill a trailer
Thursday, April 9, 2020

Kudos to the marketing department and editor - Worth the $5.99 rental? Sure, only because and the amount of work that went into making , finishing & marketing.Who is this movie is made for ? I watched with my 11 year old who commented how bad some of the effects looked. I rated 3 stars because of major flaws. #1, #4, #5 and especially #8. When it comes to being a Family Movie.1) The Robot Friend was simply to big to fit into that Backpack. 2) IF the Robot's power life is based on the amount used - Why waist on - un necessary activities. 3) The Robot knows he has USB port , but not how to charge himself. 4) Flying cars, and Unlimited power, yet these are not discovered or used. 5) The Robot suit ( a rip off of Ironman ) way to small with to many wires to fit Josh. 6) Josh instantly knows how to operate the suit. 7) The...

3/10: Dumbing Down of American Viewers
Wednesday, September 2, 2020

Within 30 seconds it reeked of cheap. First, the dialogue was the most juvenile of pretend science, and would easily fail middle school science. Second, overused effects found in all cheap sci movies such as large electrical (lightning wannabes) discharges to create a cheap wow effect. Third, the usual evil/bad corporate head out to create a weaponized robot - so non-creatively & overused a plot hook it's embarrassing. Fourth, the usual teen nerds (lately to be gender neutral in movies there's a female co-nerd; the only thing missing was a minority representation). Fifth, also done many times before is the search for the "lost" robot creator. Saving grace an extra star for the puppy cute robot

3/10: Wasted Potential

The movie had lots of promise but was undelivered. The cheap sets and substandard acting, let the movie down. Plus the more you get to know A.R.I., the more unrealistic he becomes - not that an AI robot with child like qualities is realistic to begin with.Having said that, the design of A.R.I. is surprisingly nicely done. Very likeable character with a suitable voice to suit. But from time to time the CGI is made obvious compared to the quality of the background. Or rather the overlapping of the CGI over real images does not match well.There is some style-ist violence, so parental guidance is recommended for viewing for the much younger audiences

Noah saves a robot from the scrap pile. Evil adults. Cute robot. A girl friend who helps. Chase. action. Disney ending.This was your typical kid's film. It was not the worst film for adults to sit through, but the characters are not unique or well written. Boring even during the exciting scenes

3/10: Ok movie for kids

The robot is cute but the villains though kinda weak for me. They have this cool mercenary guy but doesn't seem they use it right. They made him to look scary but that's it. No funny fight or escaping scene. Just some tough talks. The mad scientist guy was mad though
