Goofs

When Athena enters the robot, she has on a dark visor. This is supposed to protect her from the new flash weapon and helps her get in the robot without being suspected that she is not Achilles. She is knocked down unconscious in the fight, and Achilles comes to rescue her and fight in the robot himself. When he puts on the suit, the visor is now clear for the rest of the fight, as it was for all of his "in the robot" scenes. See more »

Robot Jox
10 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie i've loved since i was young! Its excellent. Although, it may be a bit much for the average movie watcher if one can't interpret certain subtleties in the film (for example, our hero's name is Achilles, and in the final battle between him and Alexander he's shot in the heel with a rocket, just as Achilles in mythology was shot in his heel). That's a just a little fact that is kind of amusing! Anyway, great movie, good story, it'd be neat to see it redone with today's special effects! Oddly enough, Gary Graham had average success, starring in the T.V. show Alien Nation. This movie is a fun watch and should be more appreciated!
