Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jason Gibner
Set in a future where everyone wears surgical masks, looks good in skintight silver jump suits, and pesky robot-driving Russians are our enemies, Robot Jox is a film with mammoth ideas and an ever bigger desire to get those ideas onscreen. With sets that look like a high school drama class production and a bare bones cast, it is obvious that director Stuart Gordon is doing the absolute best he can with what was clearly a minute budget. Whatever money did go into Robot Jox went toward the film's greatest moments: gigantic robots fighting it out in Death Valley. These moments, comprising the film's opening and finale, feature some deliciously corny stop-motion animation by David Allen. In an age where special effects basically mean digital effects, seeing this practically extinct style of animation is an absolute delight. The only serious problems with Robot Jox occur when the robots are not onscreen. The middle of the film consists of a bland love story, and a seemingly endless string of pointless scenes. Actor Gary Graham seems to be in on the joke, however, smirking away as the film's memorable, overly heroic robot captain, Achilles. Once the film does reach the ridiculously action-packed climax, filled with secret-weapon green lasers and huge flying robot hands, all is forgiven. Perfect for children or anyone with a soft spot for cheese covered '80s science fiction, Robot Jox is a lighthearted, low budget giant robot fighting blast.
