Mildly amusing premise that got crushed trying to be serious
What if in a not so distant future, robots become more or less the entire workforce of society? Sure, this idea has been presented before, and many "robots turn against humans" movies/stories are out there, but what if you present it in such a deadpan amusing way with the least talented actors you can find and let the idea fall on it's face the second it gets started. That is what you have here. So the robots turn on the humans for no apparent reason and start killing everyone, so the news crew that was filming the first murder must run for their lives (where are they going? good question). Back to the crew, this is by far the highlight of this movie, the presentation of the news is so damn funny, i could care less if it was intentionally made that way or not, it is pure comedy gold. Absolutely saves this movie from some REALLY low numbers since every other aspect of the movie stinks. So, run they will, chase the robots will, some die, some don't, the end. Except for the robots who make it to the sequel (it isn't a sequel at all, just a strange cameo type role in "Battle of the Damned" (see other review)Bad, yes but in a good B-budget way. You will laugh, trust me and it is nice and short, which helps. 3.9/10 +3 for the laughs, .9 for the movie outside of that.
