While I was only about 12 when I first saw this movie, I think it is fair to say that I initially enjoyed the ending scenes (aboard the Ark)due to the labour action- and because of this, I wasn't quite as keen on the second one.
It's a film that hits on many levels- younger audiences will enjoy it for the robots, while more mature viewers will become wrapped up in the cunning, socio-political plot with more twists and turns then a labour wiring diagram.
Make of it what you will, everyone will see something differet but either way, its 100 minutes well spent.
