Weird, confusing, violent, with poorly-written script

Not worth the time! I think it could've had potential to be a decent movie, but the translation from Thai to English was awful -- with dumb jokes, lots of mumbling "um" and "uh", and boring, uninteresting dialogue. The story was confusing and weird. It was also very violent and disturbing during certain parts. I wish we hadn't wasted our evening watching this! My 10-year-old and 8-year-old boys thought it was weird, but they said they liked the robot characters.

This title has:

Too much violence
