They are silly. Spielberg spent all this time and money with engineers and designers to try and depict what the future would "really be like" (and in some cases, like the mall, did a convincing job), but then he includes stuff like these plants that would feel cartoonish even in an X-Men movie.

Eh, it's not really the worst film I've ever seen. But the sense of betrayel is greater because I know Spielberg is capable of making a much better film out of this same scenario.
