Goofs

An object in motion will stay in motion until acted upon by another force or object. Pay close attention to the mustard bottle. It is delightfully spinning in a gravity free environment, after the vehicle is stopped, the free floating bottle is in the same space, it should have shot forward until it hit the windscreen. If you pay close attention they place other obvious errors for the viewer to discover. My query, are they intentional or accidental? Regardless they add to the silliness of the film.Makes for fun watching. See more »

Gonzo Space Opera,
13 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

Like Stuart Gordon's other venture into science fiction territory, the underrated and ill-fated ROBOT JOX, this is a nifty little film that was plagued by production difficulties and failed to find a theatrical distributor, which is a shame because its quite an enjoyable viewing experience. Everyone in the cast has fun in this , with Dennis Hopper delivering some unexpected and funny bits of dialog, Debi Mazar and Stephen Dorff providing reliable 2nd banana support and Charles Dance having the time of his life with his horny half-metal madman. This Excellent DVD offers a chance to see this little sleeper in a great looking print with a fascinating and funny commentary by the Director. This film delivers exactly what its titles proclaims.
