At this point, I would like to ask a practical question. If you are bonded together and you suddenly know everything about the other person, wouldn't you get lost in their memories and forget about fighting the monsters and controlling the robot?

Also, how did we get to the point that traditional weapons are useless against these monsters? I know I'm nit-picking, but it's the one thing about this movie that I just can't get past. If a robot can rip a monster apart, then why can't a warhead?
