Katie Mitchell (Jacobson) and her family set off together on a road trip to drop her at her new prestigious film school. But while en route, a robot uprising threatens to ruins their plans - and possibly end human civilisation as we know it.

Flicks, Liam Maguren

Just a few decades ago, the complex thought of artificial intelligence gaining sentience and overthrowing the human race was found in only the most far-reaching and cerebral science fiction stories. In today’s world, where an eight-year-old can learn how to code while ordering a burrito on the same device, the idea of a robot uprising doesn’t seem all that buzzy (or implausible). So perhaps it’s unsurprising that a very modern and riotously goofy film like The Mitchells vs. the Machines can also take on these themes with ease.

While the film certainly lays out the dangers of technology run amok, it also sees its power to connect people.

Manages to deftly move between thoughtful satire, compelling family drama, and painfully hilarious comedy.

A subversive delight that should appeal to Gen Y adults and their tech-savvy kiddos alike.

For audiences content with rapid-fire juvenilia, the busy patchwork of prefab elements will likely be entertaining enough.
