While operating under subjective humor, there is no denying certain moments, like an AI for tech millionaires like Elena, can lead to some laughs. That and the more natural-sounding robots making their assumptions and asking questions about humanity. Also, the humor being equal opportunity when going after the poor who wanted civilization to end and the rich, who figured they could isolate and seclude themselves and wait things out.
Seeing More Of The Last Days Of Human Civilization
It’s rare to get a sequel to a short that is a short. So the opportunity to see more of their post-apocalyptic world and see the various ways humanity tried to survive after the robot uprising was interesting. Especially since it didn’t just focus on one sect of humanity but focused on the rich, poor, and government officials and covered far more bases than to be expected.
Who Is This For?
Those who enjoyed the first entry into the Three Robots series and people who love sarcastic humor that has a slightly dark undertone.
