'Kiss my shiny metal ass!'

Advantages: There's no denying it, robots rock! Especially when they're evil robots with beady red eyes...
Disadvantages: Blatant product placement, plenty of continuity errors and the GCI robots out-act the humans.

The future is here (in just 20 years!) The year is 2035, and despite only being 30 years into the future, downtown Chicago is unrecognizable, glimmering with all manor of brand spanking new technology and that holy grail of futuristic sci-fi, the ...
