Even though Raiden is 8, we have been watching some older films togthers. He really enjoys watching a proper movie and not cartoons anymore. We received the film Robot Overlords to review and watch. So with some popcorn and snacks we watched it together one afternoon.
The adults lost the war and now the kids must save the world! Robots rule the streets and the people are locked in their homes. Stepping outside risks being vaporised by a hulking Sentry or picked off by a lethal Sniper.
Through the ruins of Britain a group of kids, led by Callan McAuliffe (The Great Gatsby), set out to join the Resistance. Hot on their heels however is their old teacher turned robot collaborator Mr Smythe, played by Ben Kingsley (Iron Man 3) and his captive Gillian Anderson (The X-Files).
Starring Ben Kingsley, Callan McAuliffe, Gillian Anderson, Milo Parker, Geraldine James, Ella Hunt, Steven Mackintosh, Craig Garner and Tamer Hassan. Robot Overlords is Directed by Jon Wright.
The film was good and I do think it is set for younger people, the special effects was really good it was full of action and we loved the Robots. It was easy to watch and entertaining for both of us.
