The film W.I.S.O.R fails on many levels: The film is full of standard New York City film footage that has nothing to do with the robot. Rather than have footage of the engineers talking about the project the filmmaker shows them talking about god, baseball and American attitudes. A film about designing a robot that work in steam pipes should be full of graphics; instead only a single graphic of the robot inching along a pipe is shown over and over again.
The filmmaker tried to jazz up the film my added a robot voice that simply repeats what the engineers have previously said. The videotape of the engineers working on the project kept switching between color and black and white.
The film ends with the robot being loaded on a truck and sent somewhere leaving the viewer to decide if the thing ever worked at all.
