Do NOT watch this movie. I have a 5-year-old who loves robots but this was an absolute waste of time. The most hackneyed script imaginable, every possible trope was used. Also, a lot of violent gun use in what appears on the surface to be a very family friendly movie. Beyond awful.

This title has:

Too much violence
