Not to mention that the idea of building a mech or gundam or whatever, in the form of a bipedal human, is just retarded. Stupidly inefficient. You'd waste a shitload of energy just trying to make it bipedal human like. There are infinitely more efficient forms if we're making a giant badass mech. And it definitely wouldn't be powered by two people at the same time. Derp.
This. I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks this movie looks turrible/Barkley.

Some of that stuff could be done with hydraulics. Virtually everything on the sprayer and combine is done with hydraulics. But yeah, the response rate of the pump to do quick motions would have to be other worldly. Not to mention risk exposure of having the hydraulic hoses exposed to maintain range of motion.

I'm as big of a sci-fi nut as the next guy, but this movie does very little for me.
