attempt at realism, so to speak

HI,

Practically every thing in the movie was taken from UFO encounters of some sort reported through the previous years.

Whether it was the type of uniform, the insignia, the concept of guardians, the type and location (somewhat) of the base, etc. you get the idea, was made to resemble UFO contact reported information.

For me the most catching part of the movie was when one of the robots said "I think I can." when responding to a request for assistance from a guardian vessel under attack.

It came out shortly after one of the star wars movies and was labeled in the press as a "star wars" ripoff wannabe.
