During the script-writing process, science fiction author Joe Haldeman and director Stuart Gordon clashed on the vision of the film. Halderman wanted a dramatic, serious science fiction film. Gordon however wanted to liven it up and use stereotypes. In Haldeman's word's, "I would try to change the science into something reasonable; Stuart would change it back to Saturday-morning cartoon stuff. I tried to make believable, reasonable characters, and Stuart would insist on throwing in clichés and caricatures. It was especially annoying because it was a story about soldiers, and I was the only person around who'd ever been one." As they were saying their goodbyes to one another, Gorden pinpointed the problem. He said "Joe, our problem is that you're writing a movie for adults that children can enjoy, but I'm directing a movie for children that adults can enjoy!" See more »

Greatest Giant Robot fighting after World War 3 movie ever.
This was a great movie. There wasn't one minute this movie was on when I wasn't laughing. This movie wasn't supposed to be a comedy, but that's what it ended up being. The one liner's, particularly the one where the Russian says "This time next week, I kill you dead", and just the crappy effects were enough to make this movie great. My favorite part of this movie is when the giant chainsaw comes out of one of the robot's crotch. I mean, come on. How can they be serious. And then you have the fat cowboy who is exactly like Joe Don Baker killing Chinese people. It's great. If you've never laughed at anything, rent this movie, or if possible buy it. Please.
