Completely pointless
2 May 2014 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Another example of everything that can go wrong with sci-fi. You would expect a short to focus on story instead of special effects but not this time. This plays like the first line of a script someone was writing before the power ran out... and they just thought they'd go ahead and produce it as was. There's not even enough to prime a story, it's like hearing the first 4 words of a joke. And not a terribly clever or original one.

As if that wasn't bad enough, the execution is also pretty bad. The direction is banal. The acting is terrible, especially the robot's voice.

Nothing there. Hell, the ending credits have more creativity than the rest of it. And they should, they account for half of the total runtime.
