    Tom Hank's "Finch" Evokes Strong Emotional Reactions From Fans

    Finch will pinch your heart.

    Buddy road trip movie. Post-apocalyptic movie. Heartwarming family film. These are some of the hats that the latest Tom Hanks film, Finch, dons.

    Finch and his dog

    Finch is a movie that strongly reminded viewers of Hanks' Cast Away and Turner & Hooch, and was released last week on Apple TV+. Set against the bleak backdrop of a post-apocalyptic US, it tells the story of an engineer who embarks on a road trip to San Francisco with a dog, a robot, and an android called Jeff as his co-passengers.

    SNL comedian Leslie Jones loved it a lot:

    Fans agree it's quite an emotional ride:

    #Finch is a charming & sweet little sci-fi with a lot of heart, strong visuals, a great score and an ending that packs a surprising punch. Tom Hanks gives one of his best performances in years and Caleb Landry Jones is equally great as Jeff. Made for the dog lover in all of us

    Dog lovers, it will be impossible not to cry:

    I wasn’t expecting much from #Finch , as the marketing didn’t do much for me. Even though it is fairly formulaic, the film has so much heart to it. Hanks is excellent, the bond between the trio will make you smile, and the direction is solid. It is a great movie for dog lovers!

    A man, an android, and a dog on a road trip — triple treat:

    A man, a dog & a robot... FINCH is a sweet, charming and well-intended post-apocalyptic vehicle for Tom Hanks and a surprisingly funny android. It also has its moments of thrills, I always enjoy the survival aspect of those type of movies, appreciate the little things. #Finch

    #Finch is such a heartwarming & emotional journey of friendship - with one of the most impressively animated (and genuinely funny) robots yet. Tom Hanks is of course brilliant, along with his adorably cute dog. Yes I may have cried a little too... Review coming soon!

    A nice humanizing touch to the android. Reminds me of Chappie:

    Jeff’s parka jacket isn’t being spoken about enough… #Finch

    Turner & Hooch references were bound to happen:

    I am just glad to see that both Turner and Hooch survived the apocalypse. #Finch
