5.0 out of 5 stars Hot Jelly Baby. 15 Jun 2005
By Eve
I agree with the previous reviewer-who summed up this movie excellently.
It's not big budget, it is mocking of the genre e.g. One of the characters is called Scott Ridley - not Ridley Scott, if you want your scfi/horror without humour then may be you should skip this but you would be missing a nice little flick with several good moments. Yes there are some plot holes, just about every film has them yet some how the lower budget films get most flack for them.
Brad Dourif once again shows just how watchable he is as the computer geek with an interface problem, in the end I felt sorry for the villain! The rest of the largely unknown cast do well enough, as does a strong female lead. Don't take it too serious, relax and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars I showed him my thing and he drop dead! 9 Jun 2009
Death Machine is one of those movies you hear about or stumble across late at night on tv, as i did first!
i initially liked the movie, it has a cool look, an interesting score, a suberb cast: Brad Dourif as the mad genius who unleashed the Warbeast, he is even more frightening than his creature, Ely Pouget has a Sigourney Weaver Alien attitude to her and is still vulnerable at the same time, but most interesting is John Sharian as on of the three stooges, ah nope! as one of the enviromentally friendly terrorists who are up to sabotage the Shaank Co.!
The movie has a wicked sense of humour and some great satire to it, nice action, plenty of gunfire and explosions!
if you like science fiction, killer robots and mad men in general, if you are up for something wicked, but yet intelligent, Death Machine might be the right choice!
The Dvd comes in the director's approved version in its original 2.35:1 widescreen, sound and picture are good, no bonus material, but worth the money!Death Machine [DVD] [1995]

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally 16 Nov 2004
By A Customer
Finally this movie was released the way it should have been all along, with wide-screen and proper footage. Sub-titles are still amiss, but who cares? Compared to the chopped up version that was released in the US a while ago, this version looks beautiful. 15 or so minutes of god knows why thrown out stuff are now back, adding a great deal to cohesiveness of the events and to the comedy aspect, not to mention that wide-screen actually allows to see what the hell is going on unlike the dreadfully cropped full-screan that was available before.
As for the movie itself, a lot of people complained that this movie is bad because its a terminator/alien/robocop/bladerunner/whatever ripoff. Others complained that the movie's attempt to be funny by making fun of the titles mentioned above were overly blatant. Sheesh. How about a happy medium? I personally think, that this movie, despite miniscule budget, barely known (besides Brad Dourif) actors, and it's "unoriginality" is amazingly well done and is right up there in my personal top list. It does a great job at making fun of genre cliches, itself, and everything in between, while remaining suprisingly smart from the technological standpoint, and entertaining throughout. The closest similar movie that I can think of is Evil Dead 2, except Death Machine is a sci-fi/horror. I hope that those of you who decide to buy it based on this review will not be dissapointed. It has it's share of great moments. Just don't take it too serioulsy, relax, and you'll surely enjoy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Death Machine. Saw it, bought it, loved it!! 2 Mar 2009
This is a film that I loved so much that I bought it twice, once down the market on VHS, and loved it so much that I bought it again on DVD. I bought it the first time expecting the usual "monster killing person" routine while wearing psuedo futuristic clothing that would date the film. I was wrong.

I was quite impressed not just by the storyline, but the action scenes and the technology behind the inventions involved in this film. Not bad for a film that was shot on a low budget. The down points are there are scenes in the film that looks like it belongs in a 1980's arcade game; the characters are all seemingly named after film directors but otherwise the film is timeless. No strange futureistic clothing, except where it's absolutley necessary such is in the "Hardman Project"

Sure, it's a film that borrows much from other films such as Alien and Terminator with a splash of the first Die Hard film in there for good measure all set within a bladerunner style world but this all adds to it's uniqueness. Unlike Terminator or Alien where humans simply run about trying to escape a seemingly unstopable "Warbeast", the characters who are trying to survive in this film have their own defense, the "Hardman Project".

The characters are well rounded, if a bit strange. The good guys are weed-smoking humanitarian hippies who watch too many films or have spent too much time listening to Karate Kids, Mr Miyagi.

Brad Dourif is a great bad guy in this film, an evil mechanical engineer genious who spawned the idea for the "Warbeast" and the "Hardman project", and who also has the mind of a 12 year old, which, I guess, where the arcade game graphics come into it.

5.0 out of 5 stars "..COOL SCI-FI GEM.." 4 May 2012
This is yet another cool, long lost sci-fi from the 90's. Death machine has a pretty decent budget and good robot monster effects! the story is simple and kind of uses bits of other movies like ALIENS and TERMINATOR but does have a little originality too. The cast is good and the character names are hilarious as a few of them are taken from directors like Sam Raimi and John Carpenter and there's even a Scott Ridley! Overall it's good sci-fi low budget but not too cheesy fun, some gore but a few cuts here and there, the picture quality is VHS but it adds to the feel of the movie, if you like this sort of thing it's a gem for a few quid.
