Had potential
18 February 2012 | by mergatroid-1See all my reviews

This movie was almost good. The acting was on and off, as some of the actors seemed pretty good while others should not quit their day jobs.

The robot effects were pretty good. They did not quite convince me they were really there but they came close. I have to give them points on the story. It wasn't bad and if given a bigger budget it could have been pretty decent.

Too bad about the script though. Again, one of the things that stick out most about bad movies for me is how bad the script is. I've seen some movies with pretty good actors, but the movie sucked because the script was so bad you could tell the actor didn't even want to say the lines.

So, not a bad story about robots running amok and killing everyone they come across, not bad effects (the effects company shows great promise IMO) but hit and miss acting and a poor script.

I watched it once, I doubt I'll watch it a second time.
