There was a movie that I watched once in my childhood(around 15 years ago). There were robots creating other robots. Some brains (green colored) in enclosed shells (filled with a transparent liquid). And they are a threat to the human race.

I just cant recall anymore. Can you please help me with the name of this movie.

    Where were the brains? Were they on top of the robots or floating around on their own. – Valorum Apr 18 '16 at 9:37
  • Was it animation art or a live action movie? – Gerald Schneider Apr 18 '16 at 11:00
  • Could it be Terminator? – Alessandro Sanfilippo Apr 18 '16 at 13:28
  • Was it a comedy? I'm not sure about robots creating other robots, but the brains in enclosed shells makes me think of Mars Attacks! from 1996 (my god is that movie really twenty years old?!?!). - imdb.com/title/tt0116996 – Pepijn Schmitz Apr 18 '16 at 16:22
  • I think the brains were on top of robots. No, its not Mars Attacks; I've seen it. Seen all Terminator movies; I, Robot etc. – vintrojan Apr 19 '16 at 6:14

Could it be the loose adaptation of Asimov's works, the Will Smith version of "I, Robot".


It certainly has robots building robots, and various times when the robots glowing brains are exposed and a climactic scene with a large robot brain.

Will Smith's character even makes a direct reference to "Robots building robots" in a rather cringeworthy line.

Robots building robots. Now that's just stupid.

  • The movie is only 12 years old though. – Gerald Schneider Apr 18 '16 at 10:59

    That's around-ish 15 years. It didn't sound exact from the question. – John Meacham Apr 18 '16 at 11:01

    12 years is 15 years +/- 25%. Close enough to my mind. – GeoffAtkins Apr 18 '16 at 13:37

The movie can be 'Automata'. Here is the link of its trailer.

    This came out in 2014. The OP said they watched it about 15 years ago. – Molag Bal Apr 18 '16 at 13:25
