Critic Reviews for Robot Monster

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (9) | DVD (4)

The Tru-Stereo Process (3-D) utilized here is easy on the eyes, coming across clearly at all times. To the picture's credit no 3-D gimmicks were employed.

3-D raises the rating a mini-bar...but what a George Nader classic this is!

One of the most hackneyed, and lowest-budgeted, science-fiction films ever made.

A really terrible monster movie, but a really entertaining viewing experience.

August 5, 2004
Capital Times (Madison, WI)

OK, it''s cheesy, it's stupid, it's cheap, it''s nearly inept, but, by golly, it's a hoot to watch.

November 29, 2003
Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

A triumph of ineptitude, a bona fide turkey that deserves to be served up on the same table as anything by Ed Wood.

A man in a gorilla suit with a diving helmet and a bubble machine. Trash nirvana.

Audience Reviews for Robot Monster

½

Ro-man, an emotionless alien gorilla in a diving helmet, hunts down the last surviving hu-mans on earth. It turns out it's all the dream of an eight-year old boy, which explains why unrelated footage of battling dinosaurs pops up every now and then. Indefensible, and indispensable.

Watch in horror as a man in a gorilla suit wearing a fishbowl with a TV antenna terrorizes beach going teens. Very funny.
