Critic Reviews for Robot Overlords

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (4)

  • Surprises are few and far between, but what makes it a bit better than average compared to other live-action kids' films is the jaunty banter.

  • The pic's general good humor - plus the tony adult presence of Gillian Anderson and Ben Kingsley - compensates to some degree for its cheapjack construction, but not enough to extend its appeal far beyond pre-teens in Blighty.

  • Robot Overlords would be better as a children's television series than a cinema release, despite the presence of Ben Kingsley and Gillian Anderson.

  • It's brisk enough, and Wright's fondness for types sustains it: there are well-judged contributions from Ben Kingsley as a snippy collaborator, and Tamer Hassan as the guvnor of a pub in permanent lockdown.

  • Lively action on a low budget.

    Apr 9, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • While Robot Overlords looks like it's been made on the budget of a Doctor Who episode and features binary acting, there is enough spirit to entertain.
