Although this film is overlooked, I have a real love for this one. I think it is very sweet and has a great story. The story is very imaginative and promotes some actually thinking. This is not just a film for kids as it caters quite a bit to the adults as well. It has a great heart and very funny as well. The 3D presentation on the disc is very good as well. I really enjoyed the 3D effects and they did not over use it at all. The video is perfect and very vibrant. The film is also very colorful, especially works well for the 3D. The sound is also notable with Disney’s DTS-HD 5.1 Master. If you have never seen this film, this is your chance and it is a must. If you are able to enjoy this film in 3D, I would recommend it very highly.
The bonus features are decent and standard for a Disney release. There is a fairly interesting audio commentary from Steve Anderson. Easily the best feature has to be the “Inventing the Robinsons” featurette, which provides an informative look at the film’s production. The deleted scenes included are interesting and even include an alternate ending. “Keep Moving Forward: Inventions that Shaped the World” is an interesting featurette discussing the production. “Bowler Hat Barrage! Game” is actually fun and aimed for the kiddies. There is also another kids game called Family Function 5000: Family Tree Game”, but not a good. There are two music videos…one I love and one I do not. First we have have music video for “Kids of the Future” by Jonas Brothers, before they were mega stars. Lastly then there is “Little Wonders” performed by Rob Thomas, which is such an amazing song and a great video.
