Storyline

In the year 2041, the rebel Centros are a plague to the survivors of the great toxic gas scare of 1993. A renegade Megarobot pilot and an archaeologist must team up (despite personal differences, a reluctant romance, and official pressure to cease and desist) to thwart the Centro's attempts to resurrect a hidden Megarobot, with which they can challenge the prevailing order.

Goofs

Following the gun battle after crashing in the wastelands, Stumpy finds a canteen on one of the dead hostiles. He picks it up, smells it, and says "tequila" as he hands it to Drake. Drake refuses it and throws the canteen away which obviously has no fluid in it by the way it moves, the lack of spillage, and that it makes a distinctive "hollow sound" when it lands. See more »

This is not a sequel to Robot Jox. Repeat. This is not a sequel to Robot Jox.

In the future, there are warring factions that use robots for transportation because there are terrorists that attack them. A bad guy from the other side takes over the transporting robot and our hero has to fight him with a older robot. Other stuff happens but you really don't remember because the main character's acting is so distracting and the plot is so muddled its hard to figure out the who, what, where and why. This movie was trying to be more complicated then it should and the whole time we are waiting for robots to fight. The robot "fighting" is maybe seven minutes throughout the entire film. You see them walking around here and there but i needs that robot action. Once you see the action, you think to yourself, that was OK, I guess.

It was a pleasure seeing Barbara Crampton in this film. You might remember her from Re- animator and From Beyond, two of her earlier better films. Even her acting dragged and fell flat just because she was playing opposite Don "The worst actor ever" Michael Paul. His machoness and blatant harassment of Barbara Cramptons character is very awkward and uncomfortable. If there were classes about overacting, I am pretty sure "Robot Wars" would be on the final. Don Michael Paul is simply bad. This film is boarder line "so bad its good". Good - no, bad - yes, Entertaining - kind of.
