An easy 90 minutes
28 March 2015 | by barnet-43527See all my reviews

Enjoyed this with the family, totally cheesy and predictable but with a great mainly UK cast of young and old that hits the spot. Quite happy with the world domination theme set somewhere in the future with mind control and Techno robots but also the great use of Tec, mixed in with Northern Ireland & Isle of Man . This film is never going to be The Transformers movies but touches like the use of a Spitfire suggests this one may hold symbolic value for our newly confident film industry. An easy 90 minutes for all the family with Roy Hudd, Gillian Anderson and Sir Ben Kingsley, safe and sound for the holidays and ready for a quick DVD release.
