Set in the near future when robot technology has created some strikingly human-like products, the film opens with loonball Japanese scientist pervert Ryuichi Sakamoto (Lam Chung), transferring his consciousness into one of his cyborg creations, which immediately becomes a killing and raping machine.

Audience Reviews for Nu ji xie ren (Robotrix)

Barbarella lives - well-photographed pin-ups valiantly struggle against the awesome forces of inanity. Would perk up the Playboy Channel, though.

Cheesy goodness. Martial arts, robots, psycho killers and softcore erotica make this quite enjoyable. This flick probably had Verhoven saying, "Why didn't I think of that?".

"Dr. would you be so kind and remove his eyes now?"

This movie is a tad ... disjointed. It doesn't follow a plot line so much as it just shows you a bunch of things happening. This lets you make the story fit your imagination. So since a review wouldn't really do this movie justice I'll simplify things and tell you the 32 things I learned by watching Robotrix.

1. Robots rape people.
2. It is possible to decapitate someone with a picnic basket.
3. It's easy to recover from robot rape.
4. German robots can be defeated by American ones.
5. If left unsupervised, policemen will use androids as sex slaves who never get tired.
6. You have to be dead before your consciousness can be transferred into an android body.
7. If you're an android, big magnets are bad.
8. Androids can run down vertical cliffs without falling over.
9. Germans program their androids to be gymnasts.
10. Once your consciousness has been transferred into a robot body you can be revived a bunch of times after dying a bunch of times.
11. If you take a dead man's eyes out you can see the last thing they saw before they died.
12. If you punch someone hard enough you will leave a punch shaped hole in their chest.
13. Sometimes people pick fights with robots at conventions.
14. Middle Eastern people are stereotypically rich.
15. It's not easy to convince police officers to play in hot tubs.
16. Androids are basically people without all of that blood and bones BS.
17. Taking a fight outside means taking it into the men's bathroom.
18. Don't piss off crazy Japanese robot scientists.
19. Computers can track people just by taking a picture.
20. Causing kids to fall to their death makes you afraid of heights.
21. Androids can lift their face skin off, prove that they're an android, and then put their face skin back the way it was.
22. When you're through having sex with someone it's ok to throw them out of a second story window.
23. It's not easy to get away from a sex crazed android maniac while in the act.
24. There are always plenty of useless pipes around that you can rip off of walls and attack people with.
25. It's easier to attack someone hand to hand than it is to snipe them with a rifle from a high position in the middle of an open desert.
26. If you put a gun in someone's face they'll give you their Porsche.
27. If you're following someone, don't let them see you or else you'll die a very painful death.
28. Crime bosses let their girlfriends get felt up by bar patrons and then get indignant when the patron wants to sleep with them.
29. When you're making a movie in Japan it's easier just to name the bad guy Yamamoto and be done with it.
30. Poisonous gas can knock you out before you even breath it and then instantly become inert if you're the bad guy.
31. Sometimes you win lucrative contracts by showing up and kicking the crap out of the other guy.
32. Killing a cop and then turning them into a cyborg is not the same thing as Robocop because the cop is a woman and not a man.

And lastly. I learned that there is always a contingent of Belgians in the Sinai. Wait, that's Independence Day.
