What, you wanted something eloquent? Too bad. This thing looks like hell. It certainly doesn’t look like a major motion picture which cost millions of dollars. FilmDrunk says it looks like a Sci-Fi Original Movie, but I think it’s more like an ABC Family Original Movie, a la Samurai Girl–the special effects don’t look any more special than you’d find in an episode of Kyle XY, and despite ostensibly being an action film, you can tell there’s going to be no actual violence in the film–just the lower end of PG-rated brawling. But hey–thank god they renamed it Dragonball Evolution, right? They certainly dodged a bullet there!
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
