Thom just wanted to be an astronaut. His girlfriend Celia just wanted to create robots - and for him to not be freaked out by her cyborg hand. How was Thom supposed to know that breaking up with her would make her take out her anger on the rest of humanity using her robots? It seems the only possible way of undoing everything...is to overwrite her memory of what happened 40 years ago. Written by
As a movie it has great shortcomings. The story and acting are half descent for an amateur night but sure are not up to the standard of the production. The story is simple and well structured but misses a strong rhythm and even for the short 12 minutes it has a slow pace with many repeat shots and recurring camera angles even when it goes into 'full action mode'.
The design and production get a A++. It looks totally awesome and the animation is superb. But Like Disney company had seemed to have forgotten after Walt died; Great skill in making the movie is just a tool to tell a story.
It all is clearly a showcase for those awesome design 'skillz'. That is why they still get a 9 out of 10 and I would classify this as a must see event.
