Nevertheless, I tried to watch ASTRO BOY with an open mind. While itís fairly slick and well paced, I still had a very hard time getting into it. Obviously, this was an expensive film, with the animated effects coming off as slick (perhaps too much so, as the overly polished animation lacked personality), and the voice cast being very high end (it includes Nicolas Cage, Freddie Highmore, Bill Nighy, Nathan Lane, Charlize Theron, and Kristen Bell). Still, after the first twenty minutes or so, my mind began to wander, and the rest of the film just kinda faded into the background, and by the time it was over I could barely remember a thing about it.
Two Deleted Animated Sequences Inside the Recording Booth: which gives us a look at the high profile voice cast (Cage seems to be doing a lot of this recently).
Rounding things out are three more featurettes, Designing a Hero Building Metro City Getting the Astro Boy Look , and finally, there's also an image gallery
