One of the most amusing highlights of the film, which I failed to pick up on when I was a child, was that the Cosmic Key gets picked up by a musician and his girlfriend, who believe it to be a new Japanese synthesiser.

Nice concept, quite good visuals, decent blu-ray
Not nearly as good as it feels like it should be (*)
Visually spectacular, Stanton's easy-going direction, epic action, believable leading couple
A familiar plot, slow start, and a touch too long (*)
The franchise is back on track
The Raid in all but name (*)
So bad you might laugh a bit, kids might like it(although they'll probably get bored with the lack of action)
Numbskullish screenplay, dire acting, weak special effects, sluggish pace, no thrills, no tension, no excitement...and it goes on (*)
Original
Poor ending (*)
similar by Media Format (DVD)
Some above average performances and a good storyline in the main part
Terrible ending (*)
The Best Alien Invasion So Far.
None! (*)
Looks great
Silly idea (*)
Solid direction, effects, casting and writing.
It isn't particularly original. (*)
There's no denying it, robots rock! Especially when they're evil robots with beady red eyes...
Blatant product placement, plenty of continuity errors and the GCI robots out-act the humans. (*)
similar by Classification (Parental Guidance)
Good Characters, Good Cast, Quite Funny At Times, Good Special Effects.
Not Enough Fnuny Moments, Can Drag On A Bit, Sometimes A Bit Too Kiddy. (*)
Funny film, great special effects, fabulous extra features
Run of the mill sequel, Average script, The product placement is a touch much. (*)
