My Thoughts

My kids love movies with animals, so I was sure that Robo-Dog:Airborne would be a big hit with them. This story centers around a boy named Tyler. His father is a genius and he created him a dog that isn't like any other. He might be a robot, but he's till Tyler's best friend. Things are going great until Robo-Dog disappears at a science fair. His memory get wiped out, but he's rescued by a little girl and her IT guy father. They fall in love with Robo-Dog too, but want to do the right thing and find his owners, especially after they realize just how special he is.

Robo-Dog is a sweet movie with endearing characters and a interesting story-line. My teen kids said he was like the Inspector Gadget of dogs.  Both the animals and the humans did a great job in their roles, and the settings were very realistic. This is a an adorable movie and a great choice for family movie night. My daughter has watched it three times already and can't wait to see it again. Grab a copy for yourself on Amazon.
