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.
