THE PLOT:

A super secret giant robot project has crashed on a remote island. A team of scientist and Seals go in to retrieve them, but the crash has activated the robots and now they're on a search and destroy mission for anyone on the island and a way off the island.

Bad timing for a team of criminals who are searching for long lost stolen loot on that exact same island, so soldier and criminal must join forces to stay alive.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Okay, this has an impressive cast of Sci-Fi greats, several Star Trek faces appear in this as well as Hudson Leick of Xena fame. Even though I love Hudson, I was somewhat unimpressed by her whiny character in this. But that's not her fault, that's how the character was written. The concept works and I do enjoy the story, so all and all I give it a solid 8 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd, the whole concept works, Hudson's character was slightly disappointing. I can't imagine her as the damsel in distress type anymore then I can Rene O'Connor or Sarah Michelle Gellar. But it's a clever movie with a great cast and it does entertain. 7 STARS.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ EFFECTS (The robot drone effects are impressive, but it makes you wonder how could they walk on such skinny legs?)
+ STORY (Basic but works.)
+ CAST (A killer cast from sci-fi and fantasy royalty.)
+ CHARACTERS (Most of the characters work, some don't.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- GOON CHARACTERS (Just because he's a criminal doesn't mean he has to be a girlfriend beating jerk.)
- HUDSON LEICK (Neither of us can picture her as a damsel in distress type who takes abuse from a jerk boyfriend.)

...AND FINALLY...

- FAN BASED (If you don't like massive machines killing people then this isn't the movie for you.)
