Giant Robot Action Pack – The DVD Review

30 June 2011 6:24 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Forget Transformers! The ultimate retro giant battling robot movie was Stuart Gordon’s Robot Jox (1990 aka Robojox) filmed in Italy with old-school stop motion giant robot battles shot here in the U.S. These rock-em-sock-em style behemoths complete with flamethrowers, lasers, giant rope-saws, and rocket propelled boxing gloves were crude, but their crunching and bashing were a sight to behold in the days before CGI. It was a fairly expensive movie from producer Charles Band’s Empire Productions (which churned out gems like Re-Gordon’s Re-animator and the original Troll) but was poorly marketed and was said to have bankrupted the studio. Robojox, though poorly written and acted, was a lot of fun when I saw it at the theater over 20 years ago, a sort of live-action mecha anime, and it is available in a nice full-screen DVD on the MGM label.
