This movie was a big project for me. I started it 5 months ago and am finally finishing. I am a big fan of robot movies and stories and thought it was about time I did my own, so here it is. And for any hardcore robot fans out there, the movie even follows Asimov's 3 laws of robotics. Big thanks to DJ Riott on the music. It wouldn't be the same without. I hope you all enjoy and appreciate this movie.

Very Good

It was a very enjoyable movie, despite the mediocre graphics, it really merited a five from me.

Although it was hard to feel bad for the grey Robot, since he has no feelings. lol

Anyway, Great Job, I hope to see more sometime.

Good job on this.

Well, I cant top the review before this one, and I agree with basically everything Bezman said, so I can only say so much. I liked the transitions you used in between scenes, like the one after The grey Robot is running with the guy, then it zooms out of the window and rotates to the guy in bed. The music does help the mavie a lot, and I can't think of anything that can improve it. Adding sound might not accomplish what you were going for, and I personally liked it without sound. So, very nice work onm this one, and as always I hope to see more from you. Oh, and I also liked when the Robot and the guy High Fived. That was pretty funny.

It actually brought tears to my eyes.

I teared up, possibly because I'm an emotionally sensitive wimp, but more likely because I associated this story with having two brothers, and the feelings of jealousy and competition against each other, when we were young. I made this comparison too soon though, and I definitely didn't expect that ending. But then again, unpredictability is not a bad thing.

Keep it up!

Excellent work...but too short?

Man, that was really touching and beautiful. I loved the stylish minimalist approach and economy of motion in each shot. It reminded me of a Radiohead video that was never made. The music really added a lot to it and heightened the emotion superbly. I think perhaps though it could do with a more interesting ending...I thought of two possibilities...
HAPPY ENDING
Just as the blue robot goes to strike the final blow, the human deactivates him with that little remote control and saves the grey robot's life. They then dismantle blue robot, turning him into wheelchairs for underpriveliged kids or something, and live happily ever after.....aaaaaaaww.
SAD (REALISTIC) ENDING
Human gets outta bed and is about to deactivate blue robot who quickly reacts and chops off the human's hand and kills him. Camera pans out looking at the scene of destruction as humans themselves consider it could be THEY who are 'obsolete'.
