Gamers will have a bit of deja vu watching this, but it is a well managed movie with some cool, controlled performances among the detonations.
The plot is basically that of Walter Hill's Southern Comfort, but with robots instead of rednecks (something I never knew I wanted until I saw Kill Command) and a healthy dash of the Alien franchise thrown in for good measure.
Steven Gomez' feature debut, Kill Command, is a stunning piece of eye candy for those who like their cinematic technology to bite back.
You won't give a mechanical monkey's uncle what happens to any of the generic grunts... but there's still some fun to be had in the well-executed action sequences and superbly-realised killer robots.
Kill Command mostly sucks. Mostly.
Steven Gomez's sci-fi thriller comes on like the ultimate James Cameron homage and fortunately, the retro vibe extends to the storytelling, which is a brisk and well-judged balance.
A film that defies the somewhat limited budget provided.
This science-fiction film takes a horror film premise - a small group of people are picked off one by one by a ruthless foe - and manages to strip it almost completely of scares.
As robo thrillers go, this has its moments, but the mechanical script could have used a little more in the way of human warmth.
This low-budget robot war has a lot more going for it than many bloated Hollywood studio equivalents.
The special effects and cinematography are almost seamless, which makes this a really cool movie to watch. The story is reminiscent of many other robot/future technology movies. The cast is not to impressive, but they direction is pretty good.
Like Dog Soldiers meets The Terminator, except nowhere near as good as either. Cliché sci-fi but with some great original designs.
I found this a guilty pleasure, the cast try hard even if one of the marines uses a deep vin diesel voice, subtitles required. The buildup is utterly brilliant, the sub was pounding and the sci fi element had me hooked. The film slips once you discover the villain isn't a deadly killer robot, I think the robot needed to dissect the humans, sounds bad but the killer robot lacks menace. I hope there isn't a sequel but I'm also intrigued where they could go. The ground has been set and there is definitely places to go.
