“To die, you have to be alive first.”
The theme is man's reliance on labour: caste society, illegal immigration, class warfare and advanced machines. Basically, Robots are not allowed to harm life forms and cannot modifications to their intelligence (as they would surpass our intellect in 7 days). But its supremely frustrating, first, to figure out who the real clocksmith master is who is manipulating the robots and secondly, to figure out will the robots help or destroy us in the end. Adding to this is human petty interests, greed and propaganda, making the robots weirdly more empathetic than humans. Humanity is on its last leg, teetering at the edge of anarchy.
This movie is no fun. Its not sexy. The action is boring and its got too many big ideas.
