“Rons Gone Wrong” is a movie for everyone who ever thought they had to settle for the gorgeous, knockoff version of the toy they really wanted as a kid. Probably all your friends got new iPhones, when you were stuck with an old sibling’s hand-me-down flip phone. Or, in my case, I can remember a time when it seemed like the whole world had Super Nintendo, but I was somehow wound up with Sega: the console didn’t have “Duck Hunt”, “Super Mario Brothers”. Or any great game, and no one wanted to come and play. Apparently, I survived, but the chip on my shoulder did not completely heal.
“Ron’s Gone Wrong” acknowledges that feeling of frustration, transforming it into comedy. Its inappropriate main character, Barney Pudowski (voice of Jack Dylan Grazer), feels similarly deprived. A jug-eared, prophet-characterized seventh-grader who goes to school with chicken legs in his lunchbox, Barney has serious problems making friends. And then comes an invention called a b * bot that promises to solve his problem.
The mass produced by an Apple-like company called Bubble, the B * bot is a pearl white contraption that looks like a cross between the EV (“Wall-E” fame) and the 20th generation iPhone. The AB * bot seems to like the same thing as its owner, helping to record and share their happy memories on social media, enabling them to attract more friends. At least, that’s what it’s meant to do.
On Barney’s birthday, a funny, sharp, tongue-in-cheek tune opens, “Ron’s Gone Wrong.” All the other kids at school already have their own B * bots, and Barney desperately hopes that someone might wrap up and wait for him when he gets home. But the father (El Helms), who is loving but inattentive, doesn’t know what his son wants and gives him a rock collection kit instead. Womp womp.
Acknowledging Barney’s frustration, Dad and Bulgarian grandmother Donka (Olivia Coleman, happily from her laurel) run to the bubble store and get the only B * bot they can get: a refusal that falls behind the delivery truck. Barney stays by her side the next morning when she discovers that she’s got her wish, immediately naming her virtual partner Ron (Jack Gallifianakis) … until she empowers the robot and realizes the thing isn’t working.
At the moment this movie ল an unequal but entertaining first feature of London-based Locksmith animation, which Disney contracted with Fox before it was pressed into the studio পারে could go a hundred different ways. Instead of choosing a clear story to follow, Locksmith’s co-founder Sarah Smith (an veteran of the British comedy company) and writer partner Peter Bainham (who, like Smith, cut his teeth working with Armando Yanucci) are determined to wake them all up. But that’s where robots become villains and turn on humanity. “The Mitchells vs. the Machines” got there first, and yet, “Ron’s Gun Wrong” still tells his characters to infiltrate the parent company’s headquarters, which is very close to comfort.
But let us not go beyond ourselves. In the same month that Facebook crawled over coal in front of Congress, a whistleblower leaked documents showing that the company knew and used its services unhealthy for children, sharing the view that “Rons Gun Wrong” technology could be harmful to child development. For. This includes Smith and colleagues Jean-Philippe Vine (an veteran of both Ardman and Pixar Studios) and Octavio E. Their device.
The villain here is a Toby named Andrew (Rob Delaney), a mock tortoise-clad bubble executor মূলত originally the Steve Jobs devil-who dreams of using B * bots to collect consumer information from their owners. But Ron is working offline and has threatened to lower the company’s share price, so he must be crushed.
With lots of fun bonding scenes between the boy and his bot, “Ron’s Gone Wrong” acts a lot like an update to the 80’s hit “Short Circuit”, where Galifianakis’ negligence, the no-filter shot, proves an ideal match for an AI’s absence of 98 % Code. Since Ron’s brain is broken, Barney must start from scratch to try to teach the device how friendship works. In addition to the usual security locks in place, Ron Barney can attack bullies who harass him and do things that B * bots shouldn’t do properly.
In addition to a knitted hat on the side of his “head”, Ron’s character is a little more than a glowing white capsule, with an early smiley face দুটি two 8-bit eyes and a semi-circular face যা revealing the full range of his personality that pushes animators to be creative. Ron’s screen flashes at regular intervals, when his movements are very favorite (his severed arm is constantly closing), which makes for a memorable character. Like Cult Favorite Stitch or Iron Giant, Ron’s screen-off merchandise is likely to have more life than on-screen.
Still, it’s a shame that the mile-to-minute plot of “Ron’s Gone Wrong” isn’t much attention. Smith and Bayanham (who previously collaborated on two Earthman features, “Arthur Christmas” and “The Pirates! Band of Misfits”) could spend more time slowing things down and exploring the offbeat dynamics of Barney and Ron, rather than what The bubble thinks of deviation rather than obsession. The climax sees Barney doing exactly what has been alleged against the company, forcing a one-size-fits-all idea of friendship towards everyone. But many of these cartoons are a disaster for their heavy-handed corporate critique: when tested-marketed, four-quarters of the combinations ask kids to be skeptical of consumer culture, at the same time urging them to “collect them all”. Doesn’t help but raises questions about their sincerity.
