When Evolver crushes the guy under the car by lowering the jack, Evolver does so by pushing down the jack handle. This is not correct. The handle twists to release the pressure. See more »

Entertaining sci-fi/robot movie
15 October 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Evolver (1995) is a very entertaining movie with a good 80's feel about it, it's about this kid called Kyle who is a champion at the game "Evolver" and his prize for being champion is a real life "evolver" robot for himself.

At 1st the robot is friendly, innocent and just wants to play the game with Kyle and his friends, but then things get bad as the robot starts to turn into a real life killing machine, killing off various people and setting out to kill Kyle.

This movie is fast paced and never boring and it's certainly better than what i thought it was going to be, so i highly recommend this movie to people who like video games, sci-fi AND Robot movies!! The robot looks like the ones that were used in the 1987 horror movie "Chopping Mall" with afew new features!! 7/10 for this movie.
