5.0 out of 5 stars Quiet obliteration 21 Mar 2014
By J. Osey
Life during giant robot wartime has never been so accurately captured than on this film. A stunning portrayal of raw power and emotion. I give it 8 thumbs up.

So why the three stars? It's a movie of its time despite the rough edges and it has that low low-budget feel of 80s/90s sci-fi/not-quite-horror movies like Troll, The Dungeonmaster, et al. In short it fairly typical of films with the hand Albert or Charles Band at the helm, and as a bonus the cast includes scream queen Barbara Crampton. This film is no Robot Jox and is unlikely to ever gain a similar cult following, but it is better than Crash and Burn.

If you didn't see Robot Jox around the time it was released there is probably little of interest here, but if you did then it's worth seeing at least once. Personally I'd seen trailers for Robot Wars for years but never managed to track down the full film. I'm glad I have finally watched it, but doubt I'll watch it again any time soon.

If you do rent this one don't miss the bonus features (??) of trailers from a similar vintage :-).

5.0 out of 5 stars First There Was ROBOT JOX...and then came ROBOT WARS! 9 Jun 2002
By Michael Fleishman - Published on
Metal against metal. Blow upon blow. Powerful arms reach out to grab and choke, electrifying lasers light up the sky as they ricochet off solid plates of steel.
The ultimate battle between metallic giants begins when a malicious foreign dignitary hijacks the last mega-robot on Earth, the MRAS-2, and threatens to unleash its crushing powers against the people of the Eastern Alliance. There's only one force magnificent enough to stop the MRAS-2, a MEGA-1 robot hidden under the city. It's up to renegade pilot (Don Michael Paul), his engineer (James Staley) and a brilliant archaeologist (Barbara Crampton) to revive the MEGA-1 and re-establish world peace.
Will the MEGA-1 be able to survive the onslaught of the new robot and its superior technology? A phenomenal battle lies ahead...

I'd say it reminded me of a film student's college work. But I've seen plenty of student films that were amazing!

This? Unwatchable garbage.

Sure; I like old-school cheesy movies. This ain't that. It's something some passionless jerks slapped together hoping to get lucky and make some money. Soul-less garbage.

Now I have to see if I can trade it in for $1 to Amazon!
3.0 out of 5 stars Robot Wars 8 Feb 2011
By Carl Manes - Published on
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.

Such a crappy old movie, I had to buy it! Has nothing to do with "Robot Jox", crappy "special effects" and acting. Its one of those "I saw this movie, and it was worse than the movie you are complaining about" movies! I wish they had it on DVD though, that would have been even better!

Buy it! I think I paid next to nothing on it and when people look at your movie collection they go "what the heck is this?!?"

A Kid's Review - Published on
This is a very good movie I recomend it for sci-fi lovers of all ages.The only bad part is at the begining when your sitting through the credits,of course you can always fast-forward through that.The movie is 106 minutes long,and is rated pg.
