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