‘The Mitchells vs. The Machines’ was released on Netflix on April 30.

The Netflix film “The Mitchells vs. The Machines” is a recent 2021 movie.

In the movie, a 15-year-old girl named Katie Mitchell goes on an extensive road trip with her parents, younger brother and her dog so they can drop her off on her first day of film school. While they are on the trip, the world quite literally begins to end, and somehow, they are the only family in the world who is not abducted by robots, who began to take over while the family is on this trip.

When my little brother insisted on watching this movie during our family movie night, I was skeptical. I judged the cover of the movie and thought it looked too childish. However, I was pleasantly surprised.

This movie is mature enough for both children and adults to watch. The humor is enough for those of any age to enjoy. You automatically develop a fondness for Katie’s little brother, Aaron, and her pug, Monchi, for their part in the humor and for their quirky personalities.

The film shows the conflicts of a parent and child relationship. In the end of the movie, it shows the watcher that it is never too late to fix things with someone if both parties actually try. It also shows the struggles that one might have relating to others and the frustrations that come with it.

Another topic that is brought up in the film is the idea of the overuse of technology, for that is what originally caused the apocalyptic reality of the film. The movie really brings out emotions of happiness, sadness and contentedness. It is an emotional rollercoaster, but in a good way.

You watch as the family bonds more from the apocalypse. Their journey to trying to rescue the entire human race makes them stronger as a family. This is a movie that all weird families could relate to everywhere.
