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 »

Not a very good flick.
28 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

I bought this movie at a flea market mainly because it had a neat box. It's really not all that good. Let me put it this way, the title is misleading. The giant robots are pretty cool. But you don't get to see them that often. This could have been a good movie but it isn't quite good enough to bother buying (or renting) unless your a hardcore sci-fi fan. Oh, and the acting is pretty bad, too.
