Storyline

Eccentric scientist Dr.Daniel and his shy, clumsy assistant Max, lead a quiet life on their space station where they carry out illegal research into androids, until they receive an unwelcome visit from three fugitives from justice, one of whom is female. Dr.Daniel and Max are both interested in her, but one of them has rather more sinister intentions than just romance... Written by Michael Brooke <michael@everyman.demon.co.uk>

Whenever he is shown walking, Max 404 keeps his arms bent at a level that imitates C-3PO in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977). See more »

Goofs

The close-up shot of Max's head is obviously a fake head. See more »

Sci-Fi cult classic
29 August 1999 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

One of my favourites! The film has a haunting quirkiness about it. Klaus Kinski is the perfect mad scientist. The MAX404 android really projects his confusion about and desire to understand his emotions. Loved the soundtrack. This movie is not for those who only like those big Hollywood "sci-fi" films. It will appeal to those who enjoy REAL sci-fi though.
