F.R.E.D.I. is a 2018 science fiction family film that tells the story of a young boy named James who befriends a high-tech robot named F.R.E.D.I. (the acronym stands for "Functionally Roboticized Ethical Droid Intelligence"). The movie is directed by Sean Olson and stars Kelly Hu, Angus Macfadyen, Candace Cameron Bure and a cast of talented young actors.

The film is set in the small town of Marquette, Colorado, where James (played by young actor Lucius Hoyos) lives with his single mother (played by Hu). James is a tech-savvy kid who loves to tinker with robots and gadgets in his spare time. One day, while exploring a forest near his home, James stumbles upon F.R.E.D.I., a highly advanced robot who has been stolen from an underground laboratory by illegal arms dealers.

James is immediately fascinated by F.R.E.D.I.'s capabilities and sets out to learn more about her origins. Gradually, he discovers that F.R.E.D.I. was designed by a brilliant engineer named Dr. Andi Palmer (played by Cameron Bure), who dreamed of creating an artificial intelligence that could learn and grow like a human being. But when the military began to take an interest in her work, Palmer grew uneasy and hid F.R.E.D.I. away to keep her safe.

As James learns more about F.R.E.D.I.'s past, he becomes determined to protect her from the criminals who are hunting her down. With the help of his best friend and a savvy young hacker, James sets out to find Palmer and unravel the mystery behind F.R.E.D.I.'s creation. Along the way, they must evade the bad guys, who are hot on their trail, and contend with F.R.E.D.I.'s own emerging consciousness.

The film is a heartwarming and entertaining adventure that explores themes of friendship, loyalty, and the nature of artificial intelligence. The relationship between James and F.R.E.D.I. is especially touching, as the boy sees the robot not as a tool, but as a living being with thoughts and feelings.

Despite its small budget, the film boasts impressive special effects and production design, with F.R.E.D.I.'s sleek metallic body and glowing blue eyes standing out as especially memorable. The performances are also strong across the board, with the young cast members delivering solid performances and the adults adding depth to their roles.

Overall, F.R.E.D.I. is a charming and inspiring family film that will delight viewers of all ages. With its blend of fun action, lovable characters, and thought-provoking sci-fi concepts, it is a movie that will spark the imagination and leave a lasting impression.
