Summary Henry isn't the most popular kid in school. So, when he comes across a broken robot named Cody, things start to look up. After fixing him, Henry discovers that Cody isn't your average automaton - he's a highly intelligent search and rescue robot! The new friendship looks like it may be brought to an abrupt end however, when the military lab that created Cody tries to seize him back. When they then kidnap Henry's mother and Cody's inventor, it's up to one boy and his robot to outwit their captors and save the day! From the producer of Spider Man, X-Men and Iron Man, and co-starring David Eigenberg (Sex And The City) and Penelope Ann Miller (the multi Oscar winning, The Artist), Robosapien blends fast-paced action and mischievous humour to create a rollercoaster ride of an adventure that all the family will love!

CODY THE ROBOSAPIEN is a science fiction adventure about an intelligent robot, designed to carry out useful search and rescue work, who escapes the clutches of an evil corporation that wants to turn him into a weapon. It is rated PG for mild violence.

There are some action sequences in which the heroic robot is attacked with weapons that fire bolts of electricity. However, the injuries he sustains are not realistic. Human characters also come under threat but this is quickly resolved, usually through their bravery and resourcefulness. A young boy who befriends the robot is seen to deliver a punch to a school bully who has been taunting him, but the mild violence in the film is almost always carried out by bad characters with whom children are not invited to identify.

The film also contains some scenes of mild emotional upset involving the young human characters and some very mild bad language, such as ‘jerk’.

PG stands for Parental Guidance. A PG film should not disturb a child aged around eight or older. However, parents are advised to consider whether the content may upset younger or more sensitive children.
