Movie Info

Sometime far into the future international powers settle their differences in gigantic arenas where each nation sponsors an incredible robot gladiator. These gladiators duke it out to determine the distribution of world territories. This might be best appreciated by pre-teen video warfare fans. ~ Rovi

It's quintessentially So Bad It's Good.

...this is - by and large - irredeemably ridiculous.

Audience Reviews for Robot Jox

Some epic robot/mecha fighting going on here with some epic stop motion effects hehe well sort of, its certainly very dated and looks more like an episode of 'Red Dwarf' than a film but its so gloriously tacky and fun.

A Band production (he does churn them out) which does seem to bare a small similarity to the recent 'Reel Steel' but admittedly is more of a mech film. Basically trained fighters combat in massive mechs for control of certain parts of the world which hold value but the fighters are part of a 'Formula 1' type team. Its chock full of silly sci-fi and wonderfully cheesy effects and bluescreen, some of which looks OK some of which looks nasty, but one things for sure the cast do their best to make it seem serious *chuckle*.

Its very easy going stuff and perfect for those sci-fi hounds out there that love a good B-movie and I'm sure we all know of Mr Band's work. Goodies wear white and are team America where as the baddies wear black and are naughty evil team Russia (boo! hiss!) 'crash n burn'.

Stuart Gordon is a legend, just don't give him too much money. Robot Jox was made for nothing and it is beautiful, Space Truckers had a good budget and was awful. Stuart Gordon is a cult b-movie master and should remain so. The effects are old school, give me this over Real Steel and Transformers any day. This is late night, early 90's b-movie gold, it never won any awards but I love everything about it. Jeffrey Combs could have had a bigger part though.
