The Reviews for Smash and Grab (2019) 1080p

Smash and Grab crystallises the central cooperation of workers for a brief examination on societal segregation.Reviewed byTheMovieDioramaVote: 6/10

Two functioning robots, one that smashes luminescent minerals and the other grabs the crushed rocks to toss into a furnace, are hooked up via power cables with limited space to roam about within a futuristic locomotive's carriage. So restricted, that the two are unable to high-five. They soon witness several droids high above outside equipped with spherical batteries to maintain their power level, a freedom that both robots yearn for. And so, they disregard the rules and operate as a team to escape their confinements for a better life together.

Think of this as Stanton's 'WALL-E' with the cooperative boundaries of the puzzle video game 'Portal 2', specifically the multiplayer aspect. Larsen's visual narrative, equipped with zero dialogue, manages to superfluously establish a story revolving around escape. The working class desiring the middle class lifestyle. Only one tiny scene unfortunately briefly explores this theme, as further exploration could've made the robot's motivation more potent. However, its typical Pixar charm comes from the delightful characters that comprise of monotonous "beeps" and "boops". Both Smash and Grab (yes, that's their self-titled names) exude different personalities and statures from animation alone. Smash's one eye in particular garnering the ability to reflect emotion by increasing or minimising its diameter. Simplistic character models, yet hugely effective in resembling human motion and exerting infectious energy.

The animation, as per usual, maintains the studio's highest quality. Especially the broadening horizons when viewing at the locomotive's exterior shots. There was a grainy aesthetic implemented to enhance a rustic style, although this ultimately made certain darker scenes look too fuzzy in comparison to the more beautifully glowing frames. The 2D panels of the towering floating stacks of minerals against a 3D backdrop also felt out of place. Still, Smash and Grab is an exquisitely delightful short that manages to just implement its themes with the utmost subtlety whilst offering a splendid direct adventure of escapism.

There is a reason Wall-E is feature length and this is a shortReviewed bynutanaVote: 4/10

Wall-E is a beautiful parable with strong messages at its core. Smash and Grab exists because someone thinks that trains, robots and floating cities look cool.

On an ultrafuturistic planet, sentient robots are tethered servants for some powerful, controlling, unnamed entity.

The robots exist because even though the powerful entity can build cities in the sky and sleek high speed automated trains that run on elevated tracks, they are unable to design train engines that are refuelled automatically. No, the fuel must be loaded into the engine one piece at a time.

In addition, the fuel must be loaded into the engine car in enormous ore clumps that must then be jackhammered apart immediately before use. If I was designing the system I would definitely jackhammer them apart at the minesite, but I guess that's just me. Unfortunately, the trains are so sleek that the only way in or out of the engine car seems to be a small hatch, way smaller than the clumps of fuel, inconveniently located in the worst possible spot, the floor.

Regardless, the point of the trains is to transport a different energy source altogether. This seemingly more powerful energy source is not used to power the trains, even though they must take an incredible amount of energy to run. To load pallets of the powerful energy source onto the trains, they simply float the pallet in the air and it glides on. Evidently, just floating them directly up to the cities in the sky is not feasible, hence the need for the trains.

The robots are also equipped with incredibly powerful optical zoom lenses, even though they are designed to work inside of a small box.

I get that maybe I'm not supposed to overthink this cute little short, but if you set up a world where the characters have no reason to exist, how are we supposed to engage with them?

Crazy fun!Reviewed bymihai_alexandru_chindrisVote: 7/10

Lovely characters. Dramatics action. Sci-fi sceneries. Awesome!, in a single work. I enjoyed every minute of it.
