MORE INFO IMDb
In a post-World War III world, war has become outlawed and disputes between the super powers are now settled by genetically enhanced super soldiers known as Robot Jox who operate skyscraper-sized robots that combine to become the ultimate killing machines. Stuart Gordon's entry into the way-too short-lived subgenre of robot warrior movies of the early 1990s has all the flash and bang of a young Michael Bay on a shoestring budget. Joe Haldeman, whose sole film credit is this movie, creates verbal poetry with lines like "I kill you already... (points to head) in here.," and "You make my drink taste like blood!" Audio pearls fly at you fast and furiously as the world's two biggest super powers, The Market (good) and The Confederation (bad), face off in a battle for Alaska.
A film about gigantic robots battling it out in exotic locales can't be bad, and that's why we're bringing it to you for some Late Night at The Alamo fun! Gordon tried to make a live action anime, and I dare say he more than succeeds. Throw in an over the top Texan named "Tex" (duh!) who serves as a glorified one man cheerleading squad, and a menacing evil Russian bad guy named "Alexander"(double duh!) whose robot has a gigantic chainsaw penis, and you got yourself a party.
