Oh, and the finale is a true shocker!...
Bindy Sue Frønkünschtein
The primary thing that makes ANDROID a damned good SF flick is that the script is very well written and contains some pretty thought-provoking ideas.
Michael R Gates
He seems to yearn for knowledge about the human race, wants to interact with people on earth, but Dr. Daniel won't let him.

A fave from my teenage years - this is a charming and intelligent sci-fi B-movie with good peformances from all involved. Klaus Kinski plays a wayward nutty frankenstienesque scientist living alone on a space station with his android servant: Max 404, a bumbling android who yearns to know what it means to be human. Kinski believes himself to be on the brink of a major breakthrough but the corporation are about to pull the plug on his dodgy experiments. Enter three escaped convicts that fly into their airspace whilst on the run from the law - when Kinski learns there is a woman on board he allows them to stay as she would be ideal for his grand experiment. Max too is fascinated with her - queue many humourous, touching and tragic moments and a great minimal synth soundtrack - this film is a little known sci-fi gem with a heart - just don't expect star wars!

Androids... automatons that are created from biological materials and resemble humans...from Fritz Land's 1927 classic Metropolis to Ridley Scott's 1982 masterpiece Blade Runner, the notion of artificial life becoming more human than human has long been an interesting and somewhat neglected aspect of science fiction genre within film (personally, I think the main interest in this type of technology is put forth by men wanting to create their ideal woman and perform whatever sick, twisted desires lie within their perverted, depraved souls...I mean a woman who will do whatever you want, whenever you want and not complain about you leaving the toilet seat up? Free will is certainly a wonderful thing, but it shouldn't get in the way of having a good time).

Android (1983), directed by Aaron Lipstadt, whose primary work afterwards has been on TV shows like Miami Vice, The Equalizer, and Quantum Leap to name a few, stars the talented, but entirely creepy and obtusely intense Klaus Kinksi (Crawlspace) along with Brie Howard (Tapeheads), Norbert Weisser (Midnight Express), Crofton Hardester (The Devastators), and Don Keith Opper (Critters) as Max 404. Not only did Don have a starring role in the film, but he also wrote it...

The film mainly takes place on a fairly deserted deep space research station, once bustling with life, but now home only to Dr. Daniel (Kinski) and his android companion/man servant Max 404. Dr. Daniel has been feverishly working on a new prototype droid, one much more advanced than Max (all this work is done in secret out in space as due to a past incident on Earth involving rebellious androids and the killing of many humans, androids have been least that's the gist of what I got).

When I saw that the 1982 film "Android" came out on DVD, I knew I needed to take a look. I have recollections of watching this movie on cable back in the early 1980s, but I remembered almost nothing about it. It's a movie brought to us by Roger Corman, the man behind the 1980 B budget space opera "Battle Beyond the Stars." It's a film starring Klaus Kinski. And it's a movie that shamelessly rips off "Star Wars," "Blade Runner," and probably a half dozen other science fiction flicks of the time. Oh yeah! The presence of Kinski alone makes "Android" required viewing in these parts. I'm a big fan of the man with the golden hair and penetrating gaze, and I'll go out of my way to dig up virtually any film that has Kinski bringing his unique presence to the story. Sadly, Kinski disappears for large parts of the movie, but that's acceptable. He's as weird as always when he does take the time to show up. Besides, the rest of the story manages to hold the viewer's interest entirely independent of the manic Kinski. The words "interest" and "Roger Corman" don't often go together, but "Android" somehow pulls it off.

"Android" opens in a galaxy far, far away...well, somewhere in California where you can shoot a film on the cheap. It's set well into the 21st century when humanity has extended its reach across the solar system. Mankind has also managed to perfect the art of building androids, high performance machines that look and act like humans. Of course, some problems arose with the androids, problems requiring a ban on building new prototypes on earth, so companies now engage in secret research on floating space stations. That's where the movie takes place, with a scientist by the name of Dr.

Obscure but worthwhile 1982 sci-fi from the Roger Corman stable that benefits from a better-than-average script than what you usually expect from a low-budget studio. Klaus Kinski portrays a Dr. Frankenstein (of sorts) living alone on a space station with his "homemade" manservant, the android Max. Max is played in a quirky, almost charming fashion by Don Opper (who also scripted). When Max innocently overhears that the good doctor is planning to dismantle him so he can concentrate on perfecting his next generation model, (a female,of course) he starts "acting out", much to Kiniski's chagrin. Complicating matters are three recently-escaped felons who easily con Max into giving them safe haven on the doctor's space station. "Metropolis" was the most obvious touchstone here, but observant sci-fi buffs will also detect echoes of "Silent Running" and "Bladerunner". Beware the packaging blurbs that bill this as a wacky comedy. There are comic moments (some unintentional, from either Kinski's over-acting or the rest of the cast's relative inexperience), but there is enough real violence to qualify it more as a "dramedy". Barely screened as a theatrical release in 1982 (a few second-tier international film festivals at best) and long out-of-print on VHS, "Android" has slowly picked up a cult following over the years, mostly from the odd 3am cable showing throughout the 80's. As the director and writer point out on the commentary, if this film had been released in today's more "indie-friendly" environment, it would have enjoyed much more mileage. DVD transfer is excellent. Kudos again to Anchor Bay, one of the few re-issue studios that seems tapped into the zeitgiest of the true film collector.
