"You Have No Idea What You Can Do Under Pressure!"... "Stop Sniveling! Shut Up!"...

MANDROID is a remote control robot, built in Romania by Karl Zimmer (Robert Symonds) and his team, one of whom, named Drago (Curt Lowens) is jealous and wants his due credit. Zimmer has also been working on a revolutionary new fuel source. Of course, the USA is very interested in the fuel, dispatching a CIA operative named Joe (Patrik Ersgard) and a scientist named Wade (Brian Cousins) to gather information and possibly procure the fuel. Meanwhile, Drago wants to see MANDROID transformed into a lethal weapon of war, and so he sets out to cause trouble. Mayhem ensues, and Drago gets more than he had anticipated, turning him into a murdering madman! Oh no! He gains control of MANDROID! Let the death and destruction begin! Since this is a FULL MOON production, it could / should have been far more schlock-tastic than it actually is. Is it absurd? Well, yes, but not in a too-terrible-to-be-enjoyable way. In fact, this movie is one of the best "serious" efforts in FM's catalog. Charles Band was wise to shoot his films in Romania, cutting costs while gaining access to some pretty awesome scenery and structures. For his part, Lowens makes Drago a memorable villain. EXTRA POINTS FOR: The totally bonkers, shootout, bloodbath denouement and obligatory epilogue!...
