||IMDB Rating: 5.4/10 from votes
||Genre: Action, Animation, History, Sci-Fi, Short
||Stars: Kibwe Tavares, Yung Swizz'Agg
||Synopsis: Brixton has degenerated into a disregarded area inhabited by London's new robot workforce - robots built and designed to carry out all of the tasks which humans are no longer inclined to do. The mechanical population of Brixton has rocketed, resulting in unplanned, cheap and quick additions to the skyline. The film follows the trials and tribulations of young robots surviving at the sharp end of inner city life, living the predictable existence of a populous hemmed in by poverty, disillusionment and mass unemployment. When the Police invade the one space which the robots can call their own, the fierce and strained relationship between the two sides explodes into an outbreak of violence echoing that of 1981.

I had recently been pretty taken by Tavares' film Jonah and read of
this previous film. The general feeling about this seemed to be it was
a great short with impressive animation used in support of an
intelligent and political core; having seen it myself I'm afraid I have
to be contrary to these. The animation for sure is impressive and I
applaud the effort going into it even though it is clear that Tavares'
vision exceeded his reach at this time, because that does show at
times. The expansion of Brixton to be more of a broken and mechanical
future is good and generally the animation of the robots is good
although there is a certain clunkiness to some of the movement and some
of the camera movements which put me in mine of those limited Saturday
morning cartoons you see. Still, for a short film it works very well.
The thing that will make this more than a showcase though is the
narrative and I already saw that Tavares can do that as he did well
in Jonah. Unfortunately in this case the message seems to be more
tacked on rather than part of the delivery. The robotic riots are
linked back to those in the early 80's in Brixton and the suggestion is
that things will repeat forever if we do not actually address them
hence badly treated robots rising up in the way the Afro-Caribbean
community did then. This is a very simple point and I didn't think the
film did it well since it really just delivered some effects on the way
to merging into a photograph from the era; to actually deliver it
really needed to have more commentary and subtext throughout the short
but it didn't and as a result felt fragmented.
It is a shame that ultimately Robots of Brixton is more about what
Tavares could do rather than what he did. The impressive effects and
the attempt to have a social commentary as part of the film grabbed
people's attention but it is a shame that the film as a viewing
experience is not all it could be. It was positive to see how much
better Jonah was compared to this film as it shows him moving in a very
