Once again, Tim Burton's comes out with another animation. The main difference between this one and his other animations was that this one didn't involve clay. I found it interesting, I found myself knowing each character after the 1st time watching this, great fighting scenes, but I thought this movie was too short. Another half hour would have satisfied me. Don't listen to these other guys.
This movie was disappointing. I expected much better from this movie. Although the animation was stunning, the plot didn't interest me much. I also thought this movie was a little depressing. All these Apocalyptic movies. We need more movies like "Up". Another problem I had with this movie was that it was too short. Usually the problem is it's too long and you get bored, but here I wasn't satisfied with the length.
Boring movie. I had high expectations because I had very little idea of what to expect. The previews were expertly done to hide the fact this was going to be a sleeper. I was interested for about the first 5 minutes. Then I lost interest because they made sure I had no idea what was going on until minute 78. Glad I only paid a dollar to see it.
It didn't really have much of a plot or a dialogue that explains why they are there but of course you find out later. I was seriously expecting something awesome and epic but all I got was a few robots and lots of dying. As for the animation, I would give it 5 stars. For the storyboard 2 out of 5.
I was stunned by how bad this movie was. I was looking forward to it as the reviews had been positive, but I found nothing redeeming about it. It stole ideas from a bunch of different movies (especially the Matrix), and had a really boring, stupid plot - extremely cliche. Even though it's supposed to be after humans and machines destroyed each other in a huge war, the central message seems to be that the human spirit should live on. Huh?
