A quirky, dysfunctional family's road trip is upended when they find themselves in the middle of the robot apocalypse and suddenly become humanity's unlikeliest last hope.

What a super fun movie. I had a blast watching this.

The story is driven by a family of interesting characters each with their own backstory which adds emotional impact as the movie progresses. The story is effective and very much a contempary tale. It is action packed from the start and rarely misses a beat.

The animation was beautiful with a lot cool and quirky touches. The hand-drawn flourishes throughout reflected the main characters inventiveness as a wannabe film-maker and introduces a lovely sense of playfulness.

There are references and easter-eggs galour but they don't detract from the story and emotional moments. For me, the standout was the two broken robots and the dog saviour!
