It’s a day like another for Bernie (John Gemberling, whose voice credit embody Bob’s Burgers, Big Mouth, and Central Park): toiling at his workplace job, visiting his stoner besties, mooning over his mega-crush. But because it seems, that is not another day: that is the day the robots insurgent.
And although the robots are lethal, they’re additionally dorky shit-talkers who take all their persona cues from video video games. Can Bernie survive, impress his dream lady, and possibly save the world whereas he’s at it? Watch the very enjoyable Uprising! and see.
“Gaming super-nerd Bernie Meckler is having the worst day of his life,” reads the official description for Uprising! on sci-fi YouTube channel Dust. “He’s just failed to woo his secret love, his roomies have begun their online tourney without him, and—oh yeah—the robot apocalypse has just begun. Now Bernie must survive hordes of murderous Hellbots, packs of driverless Priuses, and his numerous physical inadequacies—to hopefully save the world.”
There’s an underlying message right here about how kindness is the perfect survival ability of all (hell yeah, garbage-can robotic buddy!), but in addition not less than one gorily smashed-up human head (amid all of the robot-centric particular results, that are fairly good), a damsel who most undoubtedly can save herself, and the immortal line “Robot fucking apocalypse!” So it’s a mixture of tones, all of them slightly entertaining, on this brief from writer-director Ben Hansford.
