I saw this last Friday and thought it was AWESOME!
Let me get some disclaimers out of the way, though: the acting is mediocre—not BAD (though there are a few over-acted scenes), just not award-winning—and the story is very contrived and predictable.
But it's a BEAUTIFUL movie. And, come on: it's ROBOTS fighting MONSTERS!
I went in excited but almost prepared for disappointment because of the reviews. However, the analytical part of my brain (the one that managed to put together that disclaimer) completely shut down the minute the film started. Mostly because my inner child could stop bouncing in the theater chair squealing inwardly with excitement over robots vs. monsters.
The action blew me away! It drew real, teeth-clenching emotion from me, getting me to lean forward in my seat, anxious to see the end that I knew was coming but needed to see anyway.
This is a short review, I know, but it was a great movie! Anyone who like robots, monsters, or movies should go watch it.
