Now I Fear Mall Security...
20 December 2000 | by (Sunland, CA) – See all my reviews

Cheeky, but fun, 80's flick about killer robots. Has a pretty coherent plot without any major holes (except for maybe why a computer is put on the roof), not 1, not 2, but 3 robotic villains (who are rather polite for killer robots), and idiot humans that you want to see die anyway. It's a shame it's out of print.
