Trivia

When Al Pereira gets off the bus upon his arrival in Alicante, an audio report in Spanish, likely on radio, is advertising the Alicante release of the movie 'Alphaville, une étrange aventure de Lemmy Caution (1965)' mentioning it's "by Jean-Luc Godard, the director of 'À bout de souffle (1960)' and that it stars Eddie Constantine and Anna Karina. Since Constantine is also the star of this film, this breaks the fourth wall. See more »

Goofs

The movie starts with an Ambassador being gunned down in Argentina and then a cardinal in Holland... but when a robot is arrested immediately after that, one detective tells another that Interpol reports that a cardinal was gunned down in Argentina and an ambassador in Holland.... reversing the order.... hardly the sign of a good detective....

Attack of the Robots (1966)

** (out of 4)

Spanish sci-fi/spoof about a mad scientist who creates some robots to kill off those with Type-O blood. Like many early films from director Jess Franco, this one here is technically well made but, as with the others, it offers nothing original and in the end it comes off rather slow and boring. We've seen this type of film so many times that this one here really doesn't have a single thing going for it.

Also, to be fair, I must admit that I prefer Franco's work from the 1970s, which is another reason why I didn't care for this one as much as others.
