Surprisingly, I liked it
28 September 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

ROBOTROPOLIS is a cheesy B-movie spin on the classic sci-fi staple of robots turning murderous, so there are the requisite nods to THE TERMINATOR and WESTWORLD, but actually this is a film which has a style all of its own. Financed by US money but actually made in Singaporea, I found myself really enjoying the premise and set-up, which is a surprise as I normally find such B-movie fare to be pretty dull.

The story is set in the near future and sees robots acting as guardians of society - a bit like the ED-209s in ROBOCOP. Yes, they eventually run amok, but before then ROBOTROPOLIS has quite a slow build-up. It's as realistic as it can get given the premise, and I enjoyed the way it didn't devolve into mindless action from the outset as so many do. Plenty of thought has gone into this, and the production values are better than you'd expect.

In some ways ROBOTROPOLIS reminded me of the found footage genre; the whole news reporter angle is a little reminiscent of the eco-horror THE BAY. Zoe Naylor (THE REEF) is pretty nice as the sympathetic lead, and I enjoyed watching the corporate shenanigans play out. Yes, the robot CGI is amateurish at best, but nonetheless this is a surprisingly enjoyable little B-flick.
