Robot Jox (1989)
Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.
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.

Critic Reviews for Robot Jox
Gordon's saving grace is that the stop-motion animation and model work on Robot Jox looks really cool, even now.
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'.
A Stuart Gordon sci-fi movie that takes the Thunderdome to mecha catergory. The effects are really good and the acting is solid, but things are a little too blantant about what they represent, and whether or not he intended to
A Stuart Gordon sci-fi movie that takes the Thunderdome to mecha catergory. The effects are really good and the acting is solid, but things are a little too blantant about what they represent, and whether or not he intended to, Gordon made an anti-female movie, seriously, the misongny runs rampant here! The female lead steals, bitches, fights, drugs, accuses, beats up, nags, and then destroys the property of the main character. The bad guy simply gets too 'in-the-heat-of-the-moment' during the ending fight and goes too far, but he soon snaps out of it, and the male leads look as if they are about to embrace and kiss tenderly. Overall, fun.
