An animated action-comedy about an ordinary family who find themselves in the middle of their biggest family challenge yet...saving the world from the robot apocalypse. No big deal, right? It all starts when creative outsider Katie Mitchell is accepted into the film school of her dreams and is eager to leave home and find "her people," when her nature-loving dad insists on having the whole family drive her to school and bond during one last totally-not-awkward-or-forced road trip. But just when the trip can't get any worse, the family suddenly finds itself in the middle of the robot uprising. Everything from smart phones, to roombas, to evil Furbys are employed to capture every human on the planet. Now it's up to the Mitchells, including upbeat mom Linda, quirky little brother Aaron, their squishy pug, Monchi, and two friendly, but simple-minded robots to save humanity. Written by Netflix

exciting, but all over the place
6 May 2021 | by holyraineSee all my reviews

Honestly it was a bit of a meh movie for me. I will give them credit for actually picking one genre and sticking with it (unlike the trailers led me to believe) but it was still a bit of a letdown. It was very exciting the entire time with plenty of action sequences and the animation and voice acting was great, but it was just so all over the place with a blantant uninterest for keeping its focus. The memeyness was pretty excessive and something i could do without, and the script had a LOT of conventinces. But at least it wasnt the anti-technology propaganda movie i was expecting and actually ended with an overall positive attitude towards technology, that is a genuine positive for the movie.
