Creaky Robot; NOW SHOWING.

Robot Overlords Cert 12A IN THIS determinedly old school British sci-fi adventure, giant heavily armoured alien robots control the Earth.

Teenage Sean (Callan McAuliffe) goes looking for his dad, who went missing in action fighting the invasion.

His mother Kate (Gillian Anderson) is left to fight the attentions of collaborator Robin Smythe (Ben Kingsley). The robots are nicely designed and there can't be enough sci-fi films using Second World War Spitfires in attack.

It has an energetic and engaging cast but looks like an extended episode of Dr Who and feels as if it's been ripped from the pages of comic 2000AD.
