Adult Swim Smalls and Michael Marczewski take us into the future in this thrilling animated short film.
We’re taken into a seedy backroom located in a cyberpunk-style version of Tokyo. There, we see two miniature robots fighting to the death. When the battle finishes, a new contender steps up, ready for the challenge. Battle is about to commence, but then, one of the robots realises that it’s his friend that he has to to fight. He lets his guard down and tell his mate who he is. The two have a chat and are gutted that they’ll have to face off against each other.
They’re not keen on fighting, but realise that they have no choice, because of “the code”. So, we strap in for a vicious battle to the death. But, instead, it’s actually pretty underwhelming. After one quick poke, one of the robots feigns death, so he doesn’t get hurt badly. It’s a quirky and funny short film that features some breathtaking animation. The video looks like something out of Blade Runner and is a stunning short film to watch. It’s brilliantly adds in comedic elements too, making the whole thing very entertaining to watch.
