So, of course, this year's most popular animated robot would have to be WALL-E -- and as that particular Pixar flick continues to find itself on top ten "best of" lists (as well as juggling plenty of award nominations), we here at Cinematical thought you should consider another animated robot; one that's, well, a bit more aggressive. Below we've posted a short film called World War, which was created by animation student Vincent Chai for a final project. The film takes place 100 years after the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, and it follows a robot who's trying to bomb the city once again. However, when something goes wrong, it leads to a major square off between robots ... and a pretty cool fight at that. Kudos to Chai for putting this together; it looks rad. Something tells me we'll see more from this kid in the future.

Check it out below and let us know what you think.
