The future is run by greedy corporations who control the last remaining resources on Earth using giant mechanical defenders known as the Megarobots. When one of the devices is stolen, the Eastern Alliance must seek the help of their rogue pilots in order to locate and return the missing machine. ROBOT WARS is an unofficial sequel to Stuart Gordon's futuristic adventure ROBOT JOX, directed by famed B-movie producer Albert Band (father to Charles). It employs many of the same second-hand sets and miniatures that had been used in both ROBOT JOX and another spin-off, CRASH AND BURN. As is the case with many of the films he worked on, Dave Allen's impressive stop-motion animation and special effects take the center stage in this otherwise average Sci-Fi adventure. Barbara Crampton, Don Michael Paul, and Danny Kamekona turn out a few entertaining moments as well, but the plot often feels like an afterthought while the film prepares for the final battle between the two metal beasts. Still, there is a simple pleasure to be found in watching a giant mechanical scorpion battle an armed Mech, making ROBOT WARS a fun find for B-movie fans.
