I was half way through this but i had to turn this movie off when the boy starts dancing with the robot...... That says it all doesn't it really, i should of known better when i saw the name spielberg (produced it) as all his stuff is the same sappy formula over and over, but i wanted to give it a chance...... Afterall its fighting robots, It should be good right??? Well no its not the characters are stupid, especially the little boy... he speaks Japanese he programmes robots he dances with aforementioned robots and he can negotiates fight prices .......... Like cumon!!!!!!!!!
Even just small annoyances like are we really meant to off taken such a technological jump in such a short period of time..... Everything about this film is predictable and terrible, please don't buy it, Hollywood and especially Spielberg need to be thought a lesson
