Trivia

Several references to Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969); including trick shots by Marlboro, the sudden appearance of a "super-posse", the reference to Marlboro's hometown, and jumping from a great height into the water. See more »

Goofs

The Ruger Super Blackhawk .454 can deliver a 250 grain (16 g) bullet with a muzzle velocity of over 1900 feet per second (580 m/s), developing more than 2000 ft·lbf (2.7 KJ) of energy. Marlboro Man's shoulder that Harley shot him in would have been blown clean off (to paraphrase Inspector Callahan), not leave him going, "You shot me!" See more »

Quotes

Marlboro: My old man used to tell me before he left this shitty world, five rules of playing pool for cash. Lesson #1, always shoot with a cigarette in your mouth.
Big Indian: Can't smoke with no fire, asshole.
Marlboro: I quit!, Lesson #2, always know the table before you shoot.
[Marlboro shoots the ball]
Marlboro: Lesson #3, make sure you chalk that stick... REAL GOOD... before each shot!
[Marlboro shoots the ball again]
Marlboro: Lesson #4, never make a bet... if you can't pay the debt.

True 'Cult Classic'
9 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a great movie and a true 'cult classic'. Yes I realize it's a spin on Butch Cassidy but it's a good one and it works. Completely overboard action sequences, cheesy and campy humor galore.

I'm sick of people giving this movie a bad rating because the action isn't 'believable'. It isn't SUPPOSED to be believable. Is a movie about gigantic, talking, transforming, sentient robots doing battle with each other 'believable'? Give me a break that movie was one big long commercial.

If you're a fan of 'cult' flicks you will like this one. If you'll take the time to check out the profiles of the people leaving bad ratings, most of the bad ratings are coming from British people with awful taste and even worse teeth.
