Had potential and made good use of low budget
Despite being a low budget movie the locations, sets and cgi were done well.
The number of characters made it hard to relate to anyone. The amount of crying and memorials for people we didn’t get to know felt pointless.
When the robot finally became self aware it was cliche and predictable.
Eventually it lost any goal. Was it uploading, starring a robot army, navy seal one on one, nerds conflicting choices, drug smuggling takedown, or watch drowning...
A few less characters, more setup, and higher stakes than the failure of a military test and some human casualties would have made it more thrilling.
Not a terrible movie, but I wouldn’t watch the sequel.
Poor Acting, Undeveloped Plot, Waste of Money!

This movie, if you can even call it that has poor acting and the plot is poorly developed and not well explained. (SPOILER ALERT) A private businessman and a military leader send robots to a remote village and robots hunt people for 2hrs. There is no back story or explanation as to why, other than to test the robots. There are sooo many holes in the plot and lots of missing info. The ending leaves a lot of unanswered questions and a lot to be desired. Honestly, there are way better movies, you will regret wasting money on this movie!
Another great idea turned into crappie screenplay.
CGI is the only thing made well. The rest is sooooo bad.
Fall downs in the scenario all over the place.
Actors play close to zero, often exaggerated.
Advanced robots taking up to 2 hours to kill a bench of untrained, bleeding winning people.
This could have been wrapped up in 10 minutes.
Over 2 hours of overstretched non sens.
Robots can sometimes run but when they chase humans, who knows why they only walk and start loosing them again and again.
Waste of money.
If you like Robots...
You're definitely going to like this movie!! This is NOT Terminator robots from the fantasy future, this is SCI-FI Artificial Intel military robots sent out to the Vietnam jungle for illegal field testing against drug lords, unfortunately some people are in the wrong place wrong time and have to get whacked....well because there can't be witnesses that's the plot DUH! However the ROBOTS are FREAKING AWESOME. The CGI is top notch the MACHINES are why you watch this movie all the details, sound of movements, their dexterity is excellent, their design is the best I've seen, they paid so much attention to detail that in a cave scene you can see the robots "ears" twitch as it's listening.... ridiculous who does that!
This movie was way too bloody and grotesque to be considered the action adventure that it labels itself as. Innocent people being murdered for no reason. Either the director is a sadist or just sick in the head. It should be labeled horror. No thanks.
I would have liked this movie a lot more if it wasn’t for the overly stupid, whiny and loud when I should’ve been quiet characters. Very annoying characters.

The acting in this movie to say the least was stale, very stale. The dialogue was extremely cheesy and not natural but the action was somewhat ok I guess.
Dumb - dumb - DUMB!
The acting is terrible, the directing is worse, and the men even cry when they get hurt! If you have the chance to skip this movie TAKE IT!

This movie had so much potential to be great. The robot design/cgi was awesome. The basic robot AI self-learning concept was great. But the movie with the cheap actors was just ridiculous. Basically, it was a horror B-movie. I've never seen more crying in a movie. It would take 6 Rom-Coms to equal the amount of crying in this movie. And the teenage pre-med students were screaming and making more noise in the face of lurking danger than anyone with a shred of common sense would do. "Hello, we’re here, come and murder us!"
Oh, and a Navy SEAL, who deserted from service. Sorry, that's less believable than the robots.
Very poor acting and way too long...
Not worth the money or the time.
