In 2020, Elias van Dorne (John Cusack), CEO of VA Industries, the world's largest robotics company, introduces his most powerful invention--Kronos, a super computer designed to end all wars. When Kronos goes online, it quickly determines that mankind, itself, is the biggest threat to world peace and launches a worldwide robot attack to rid the world of the "infection" of man. Ninety-seven years later, a small band of humans remain alive but on the run from the robot army. A teenage boy, Andrew (Julian Schaffner) and a teenage girl, Calia (Jeannine Wacker), form an unlikely alliance to reach a new world, where it is rumored mankind exists without fear of robot persecution. But does this world actually exist? And will they live long enough to find out?

Short Review

I only watched it because the poster looked like a Hunger Games knock off. I skimmed through it and got the gist of the story. The parts I stuck around for, I mostly laughed at because of how corny and bad the acting was. Every scene, I was literally calling what was going to happen word for word. There was a part in the movie where the main actor gets slashed across the chest and through his sweater by a sword to reveal he's not human or whatever. When the moment to reveal what the wound looks like, he has to unzip a perfectly clean sweater that has a wet water splotch on it (no visible sword slices on the sweater, mind you) to reveal his cut open shirt underneath and his wound. Like what?! Home boy was dying and he had time to limp over and zip up and sweater. Suspension of disbelief (if there even was any) was totally ruined. Anyways, go watch one of the other young adult movies that have handle these plots better. Atleast the cgi and vfx were decent. I'll give em that 1/10 (I'll never watch again)
