They can’t fool me. This is Rock Em Sock Em Robots: The Movie. Pure and simple.
That being said, more ridiculous concepts have made for entertaining movies. However, given the track record of director Shawn Levy, this is probably gonna suck. He does well with character-driven comedies like Date Night, but his special effects pictures tend to lose me. Besides, it doesn’t look like they missed a cliche with this one. Can you guess the ending?
