2.0 out of 5 stars if you are a Terminator fun 13 Dec 2001
By A Customer
Heavily influenced by The Terminator, APEX features time-travel, heavy weaponry and battle robots. The APEX units are rather strangely behaved and incredibly inaccurate with their weapons (although to its credit, the movie does claim that the firefights are occurring at distances of several hundred meters - if only the camera work backed that assertion up...) Still, it's good dumb fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars "..BRILLIANT SCI-FI GEM.." 24 April 2012
APEX is one of the best sci-fi movies ever! And certainly one of the best sci-fi of the 90's, the story is pretty good and the budget for the movie at the time was awesome with some quality effects. The apex machines themselves are excellent and are as cool as other classic robots like the terminator and Robocop etc any day, it's just a shame they never made any sequels. This is a gem of a sci-fi movie and should be viewed by fans of the genre if you have not seen it. Long lost classic!

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting time travel film 22 Oct 2008
By Mr. Jonathon T. Beckett TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Scientist Nicholas Sinclair is part of a scientific team sending robot probes through time for research purposes. One is sent back to an apparently barren desert in 1973, only for a family to get lost and stray into the robots landing area. Fearful that the probe will kill the family, Sinclair attempts to destroy the robot, but to no avail. He then decides to travel back in time to save the family. When he returns back to his present, he discovers that he has altered the course of history, and the world he has returned to is a very different one to the one that he left. Sinclair must now attempt to return to the lab(set amongst ruins in this new world) to reprogramme the original experiment
This film is a bit of a paradox in itself. Whilst in the original world it carries its themes off with considerable style, and continues to do so when Sinclair travels back to 1973. Where it really comes unstuck is when Sinclair comes back to his present, only to find that his world has changed. Then it sadly becomes just a routine shoot em up with lots of big explosions and macho posturing. What a shame, as with such a strong beginning the film promised so much more.
Still, the film is crammed full of ideas and is an enjoyable enough way to spend an hour and a half. Despite its budgetary limitations, the sets and the special effects are excellent. Good fun. 3 out of 5

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and horrible 25 Sep 2013
By Kev
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I read the storyline on Amazon and thought, what a good film to buy. After watching it....what a dreadful film. The story itself was fine but the acting and the so-called special effects...horrendous.
