Peter Weller stars as an outpost commander on a planet overrun with deadly robots in this rotten sci-fi film. Weller and a sharpshooter recruit set out across their hostile, war-torn world to make contact with the enemy, but both sides are soon overwhelmed by the ultra-violent “autonomous swords.”

The movie’s confusing backstory swiftly gives way to slipshod plotting and dialogue. Rated R.
