Did You Know?

The two hookers were also drug users in an earlier draft of the script. However, Charles Band requested that this aspect of the screenplay be toned down because he thought the hookers as initially conceived were too vulgar and over the top.See more »
Continuity: (at around 1 min) Winston is shown holding his hands together, when it zooms out his one hand is on Aarons chair. It actually goes back and forth 3 or 4 times.See more »

I am a glutton for punishment, 27 May 2003
Author: darren_steven from Hell

The cacksters that brought you Arena and Robot jox now bring you this. CRASH AND BURN.

When i was a kid, two films in Gold video, Cheadle Hulme, always stood out Arena and robotjoxs. My dad being a sensible man always refused to rent either of them; because they looked crap.

I have bought all of these films and have to say crash and burn is the worst of the lot. It was the giant robot that did it for me. Why did these people make loads of films about dodgy stop motion robots?

It says on the cover of the box "From the makers of Robotjox and Arena," like this is some badge of honour, trust me it is not. Robotjox had a touch of class but this movie is cack. Watch it for its badness. It seems to have been filmed in an old warehouse, that just happens to have a huge hulking robot rusting away in the garden. Aaaahh

BAD BAD MOVIE. Damn you Transformers you caused these films to be made.
