'Ron's gone wrong' Movie Review

The 20th Century Studios Animation brand is not dead, even though Disney closed Blue Sky Studios, its main factory. Proof of this is the premiere of 'Ron's Gone Wrong', the first feature film from the Locksmith Animation studio and the only one to be distributed by the House of the Mouse - the company has signed a distribution contract with WarnerMedia for its next titles. An endearing family tape that is also a kind of cover letter.

The premise of 'Ron's Gone Wrong' is interesting, a world that goes beyond the concept of social networks. With the excuse of looking for friends, a technology company, Bubble, creates a friendly android, the B-bot, with which children will find a kind of robot best friend that will help them find like-minded people -the Tamagotchi in Robot Emilio version alone that bigger and improved-. 

Every kid gets one ... except Barney, whose family has few resources. Finally, his father manages to give him one, only it is a damaged model that he smuggled because he could not afford anything else. This model, being damaged, offers a very different experience than what Barney expected, being a model that seems old and that, curiously, begins to develop its own personality. 

This is where the interesting thing about 'Ron's Gone Wrong' begins, as it seems to be a bet close to the classic family cinema, with an endearing android that could be the robotic relative of E.T. The commitment to new technologies and its minimalist aesthetic bring it closer to the Baymax from 'Big Hero 6' or to EVA from 'Wall-E'.

His critical message about the power of technology does not finish materializing, staying in no man's land

The fact that the model thinks for himself causes the big technology company to consider him a rebel and that is where the questioning of the virtue of the virtual friend begins. 'Ron's Gone Wrong' shows the dangerous power that tech companies have when it comes to collecting data for not just unethical but undemocratic uses. The film seems to criticize the excessive technological dependence of society, highlighting how the supposed social androids have not helped anyone to foster friendships.

However, when it seemed that the film was going to be consistent with what it makes clear, it goes back, softens its Review, and seeks to create a positive concept, leaving its message in favor of real friendships, of bringing different positions closer to no man's land. and causing an adverse effect of what it supposedly promulgates. It gives the impression that the film realizes what it is showing and chooses not to 'anger' what it calls into question.

And it is that point that ends up completely tarnishing a proposal that appeared to be different. Finally, it becomes a tremendously conventional film that does not contribute anything different from what has been seen before in family productions of leading children and pets. The android Ron is tremendously endearing, true, but that his message causes the adverse effect, perhaps it shows that it is still too early to question the review of technology that this proposal initially hid. A missed opportunity.

The Best: The android Ron is tremendously endearing, he has a lot of charisma.

The Worst: That his entire message against technology is silenced by fear of finishing off the review.
