They are robots. And they are boxing! And we’re supposed to root for the underdog robot. Because he’s scrap metal. A trash heap. A hunk of junk. It’s a robot, people! Why should we care which metal-based form wins a boxing match? Is it voiced by Vin Diesel and afraid of guns? Then who gives a shit? This shit’s dumber than exploding frog turds.
And no, i can’t wait to see it, either. I mean, on the one hand, it’s robots boxing. But on the other, IT’S ROBOTS BOXING. And Hugh Jackman is going to spar with a robot. It’ll be released in October, just in time for Oscar season.
