A few decades from now - Sienna, a rebellious robot-fighting arms dealer, lives on a post-apocalyptic Earth. When the cities start to fall under the control of the A.I. Scourge, a hyper-weaponized robot army, Sienna decides to leave the Earth and journey to the centre of the galaxy, seeking a mythical weapon that can neutralize any form of A.I.Pursued by giant machines, Sienna loses everything she cares about in an effort to save the last vestiges of humanity in an A.I. controlled galaxy.
CONS: Some of the robot voices are hard to understand. A lot of lens flares. Have to watch a few times to figure out the plot as it's really fond of twists and turns even though it seems straightforward at first.
PROS: Finally we have a male character who is the eye candy! I think that maybe some of the annoyed reviews is because SkullCrusher is essentially taking place of the traditional girly sidekick who is there to look pretty. He can act, but his arms are very distracting. ;) The story is interesting, a few moments that caught me off guard. A female action star that is actually kicking ass and gets utterly filthy and sweaty and looks like running in those boots is a giant pain but doable. I'm very tired of watching girls bounce in dental floss and appreciate they didn't constantly refresh her makeup to look dewy instead of tired and gritty.
Essentially all women out there, watch this. There's only a few women in this film but they all have an interesting roll -would have liked to see more of Xarxis(?)- and I took it as a tongue in cheek poke at classic storytelling. If you'd made Sienna a male character I bet a lot of these reviews would have been nicer.
