If I’m honest, this film has come out of the blue to me but I’m strangely intrigued as it’s directed by Jon Wright, the man who gave us the brilliant indie hit Grabbers, and has a tremendous cast in Calln McAuliffe, Gillian Anderson And Sir Ben Kingsley all getting involved in the fun.
In Robot Overlords, the adults have lost the war to robots and now the kids must save the world. These overlords rule the streets and the people are locked in their homes, so stepping outside risks being vaporised by an evil Sentry or picked off by a lethal Sniper. Britain is run by a group of kids, led by Callan McAuliffe, but on their heels is robot collaborator Robin Smythe (Sir Ben Kingsley) and his captive, the awesome Gillian Anderson playing Kate.
