Robosapien is an action packed, fun family film and is available to buy on DVD from 27 May 2013.
Allan (David Eigenberg) has designed Robosapien for the Kinetech Corporation as a search & rescue robot for use by the military. When the owner of the company decides to change the function to search & destroy and sell to the highest bidder Allan objects to its use as a weapon and sets it free and deletes all the files relating to the project.
Henry (Robbie Coleman), an unpopular kid who loves science finds the broken robot and manages to put him back together again and names him Cody. He realises that it is not just a dumb toy but a highly intelligent robot they bond and their friendship grows.
Allan and Kinetech are both searching for missing robot and Allan eventually finds him and takes him away causing lots of upset for Henry.
Will Henry get him back and keep out of the clutches of the evil Kinetech?
Overall, this is a great family film that all ages will enjoy. It has lots of action and humour and the CGI is excellent. Robosapien is a film about true friendship, albeit between a boy and his robot.
Highly recommend for all the family.
