Did You Know?

Goofs

The robot's eyes act as cameras, transmitting an image to the robot's control unit. So the only angle that should be available during the bank robbery is the robot's POV but that is not the case. See more »

Mostly for Laughs
29 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a pair of thugs attempt to rob a jewelry store, a man directing a robot enters. The robbery is foiled but the robot walks all over a floor full of watches. Also, several diamonds disappear. So the guy and his artificial friend end up in the slammer. Of course, the crooks now want this robot for themselves and manage to steal it, but the need the old guy who knows how to run it. They plan to use it to cut into a bank vault. They don't know if it will work or how to get into the vault or whether the old guy will cooperate. The whole Daily Planet crew gets involved and once again Lois almost screws the whole thing up by giving them a viable hostage (she will be harmed if the old guy won't cooperate). The robot looks silly and the far fetched nature of things is lame.
