This opening sequence was not what I expected at all. In the opening scene, Hugh Jackmans character Charlie, is driving down the country side, passing amazing sights like a circus and the green meadows off the country side. This showed he was isolated from others, but yet he was a peaceful person.
However, this is contrast to how he is actually, he is a man who wants money and even trades his only son for it. the film is mainly about his journey with his son as they train a robot to be a fighter. The film is quite good and the opening was very well done and surprising as the trailers never showed any sort of peaceful aspect.
Here is the trailer and you will see that the peacefull opening is not in the trailer.
