Trivia

When 7723 is in the lobby of IQ robotics early in the movie a loudspeaker can be heard saying "The red zone is for loading and off-loading of passengers and robots only." This is a reference to a gag in the film "Airplane!"(1980) wherein the announcers disagree over the purpose of the red zone vs the white zone (1st announcer: "The red zone is for immediate loading and unloading of passengers only. There is no stopping in the white zone." 2nd announcer: "No, the white zone is for loading of passengers and there is no stopping in a RED zone.") See more »

Crazy Credits

No robots were harmed in the making of this film. The filmmakers do not believe that robots are evil. They are good. Definitely good. Super super good. In fact, when the robot overlords take over we will be the first in line to bow at their benevolent feet. Or wheels -- or whatever. See more »

Great visuals but story and characters fall short
8 September 2018 | by d3daniel19See all my reviews

The visual finish on this movie is close to on par with recent animated blockbuster films which is a great achievement.

Unfortunately I feel like it was held back by some questionable choices of voice actors (that didn't seem to match the characters), low quality voice acting and a story that doesn't really make you care about the characters enough to worry about what is happening on screen.

So all in all a great effort, with some notable downsides.
