Disney's live action rendition of the animated TV series sees
the half-human, half-robotic detective, tooled up with mechanical devices for any event, face off against his evil twin, also geared with similar devices.
For kids, this will probably be highly enjoyable, but it
doesn't really capture the essence of the original cartoons.
Considering this is a Disney film, the production values
really should have been better, especially the tacky CGI effects.
