Robots get a bad rep. Many films choose to present them as cold, calculating murder machines - mankind's not-too-distant-future overlords. However, some automatons are damn decent chaps. Think Robbie the Robot (Forbidden Planet), Haley Joel Osment in AI, and Ash in Alien. Hmm, actually, scratch that last one. Hasbro's Transformers line, translated to the silver screen by none other than professional pyromaniac Michael Bay, is chock full of these pleasant automatons.
They are the Autobots, and together they help planet earth to fend off their smelly neighbours the Decepticons. They also perform a bunch of wacky skits and cause billions of dollars worth of property damage. Alas, no one's perfect. Today's filmic list looks at the very best of these charming clankers, from the skyscraper sized, to the mini and mischevious. Autobots, roll out!
