Storyline

Unicom is a powerful organization overseeing most of the world after its economic collapse. They have banned computers and robots in an attempt to insure "life, liberty, and the pursuit of economic stability". When a Unicom Synth robot infiltrates a southwest TV station and kills the manager, a revolutionary against the gestapo-like corporation, a lowly Unicom delivery man must help the rest of the station survive through the incoming "thermal storm". Written by Michael Silva <silvamd@cleo.bc.edu>

Trivia

The two hookers were also drug users in an earlier draft of the script. However, Charles Band requested that this aspect of the screenplay be toned down because he thought the hookers as initially conceived were too vulgar and over the top. See more »

Robot Jox 2: Crash And Burn
6 August 2007 | by anne_somethingSee all my reviews

I really liked this movie, a typical B movie thriller of the early 90s

There's one thing i need to point out tho

In some European markets, this movie is officially called Robot Jox 2: Crash and Burn - here's the VHS cover - http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a277/lovegunner/203804745.jpg

It's interesting that Charles band directed the movie (he was Robot Jox' producer) and that Robot Jox theme plays in the opening sequence of the movie.

An official sequel?

I've never seen that title anywhere else than in Europe

Other than the musical theme, title and giant robot at the end, the movie doesn't have to do anything with it's prequel
