Dove Review

This amazing movie focuses on some important values-like self confidence, being true to one’s self, letting go of the past and moving forward. It also emphasizes the point that our actions can change our future.

The animation is flawless and the characters are well defined. There is some minor cartoon-like violence and just a few minor issues which we list under the “other” category below. This film is imaginative and loaded with good things including some interesting plot twists. Every family should meet the Robinsons! They will be glad they did! This film is space-friendly and family-friendly all the way! We award this film five doves and we recommend it for every family member.
