Robot and Frank doesn't give an adrenaline rush like your standard daring high end cat burglar films; instead it shows how positive the whole burglar experience can have on an elderly individual's health.

The robot has an irresistible personality that adapts itself so well that not even a crotchety senile elder can resist his charms and soon Frank finds himself a real friend.

Robot and Frank is a movie that offers a number of angles to an inevitable dilemma, aging. It may invoke subtle internal questions on what your own old age might hold or how your family might deal with senility.

Set in the near future it reminded me of the relationship our society currently has with our mobile phones. You know how it feels when leave it at home or when the battery runs out just when you need it most and you can't charge it? That's the way we'll be feeling about our robots in the future.

Overall, it is a movie that will not stir too many emotions. Would I recommend it? Not if your normal choices of movies are Action, Horror or Sci Fi etc. but if you like G rated films or just want to watch something low key then this is for you.
