I am a huge fan of Robert Zemeckis, though I have missed his last few films in the theater. This one, however combines two things that I love: Steve Carell and Action Figures!
Carell is actually an excellent actor whose work should have been recognized with awards a long time ago.
I love the imaginative nature of it and how he is seeking to express himself artistically when he loses his ability to draw. There is a danger that this could veer too much into the corny, but I'm hoping Zemeckis will keep it from falling off the rails.
