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 »

I watched because of Barbara.
12 September 2003 | by jadzia92See all my reviews

I saw Robot Wars by an early morning screening. If it weren't for the fact that Barbara was there I would most definitely slept through it. Seeing Barbara was the only exciting thing about Robot Wars, because apart from that there is nothing enticing about the movie. The makers of the movie obviously knew they had a dud on their hands otherwise they will not have resorted to having a scene of Barbara in a towel after having a shower. Pity she didn't appear naked after all she did appear nude in other things she appeared in most especially Fraternity Vacation, which was the first time that I have ever seen her without any clothes.

Robot Wars would have been doubly good had Kathleen Kinmont, Barbara's Fraternity Vacation co-star had been there instead of Lisa Rinna.
