Storyline

In the year 2041, the rebel Centros are a plague to the survivors of the great toxic gas scare of 1993. A renegade Megarobot pilot and an archaeologist must team up (despite personal differences, a reluctant romance, and official pressure to cease and desist) to thwart the Centro's attempts to resurrect a hidden Megarobot, with which they can challenge the prevailing order.

Goofs

The film has been mirrored in some of the docking scenes. When Mega Robot 2 is walking up to the dock at Crystal Vista carrying Leda and Annie the dock is on the left side of the robot. However, the attendant opens the door on the right side of the cabin (Leda and Annie are sitting in the back corner of the cabin). After the passengers exit the camera switches to an outside view and you see the left side of the robot and no docking tower. Later, when Mega Robot 2 arrives with General Wa-Lee you again see the docking tower is on the left side. See more »

A Passable Giant Robot Flick
5 June 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

There's nothing quite like watching giant robots doing battle over a desert wasteland, and Robot Wars does deliver. Sure, the acting is lousy, the dialogue is sub-par, and the characters are one-dimensional, but it has giant robots! The special effects themselves are actually quite good for the period. They are certainly not as polished as today's standards, but it contains a minimum of computer graphics and instead uses miniatures, so it has aged fairly well. Its shortcomings are easily overlooked given the films short runtime, and it does have a certain tongue-in-cheek humour in parts that make it quite enjoyable. I would recommend this to any fan of giant robots or cheesy sci-fi who is looking for a lighthearted hour of distraction.
