Apocalypse in movies is not a new concept. It’s either has to be a zombie apocalypse or some kind of toxic chemical release that eventually threatens the existence of humanity. That’s about it. But what if we tell you, there’s something called robot apocalypse. too? Remember Terminator? Robots killing people and causing destruction?
Just a teeny tiny difference is that in The Last Bus, the tiny robots don’t mercilessly kill but make people vanish. When it comes to zombies, everyone knows to aim for the head, thanks to The Walking Dead. When it is about the toxic gas release, everyone knows they need a cover for nose and mouth. But no one knows how to tackle the flying robots who have somehow turned homicidal.
