Format: Amazon Instant Video
Teen game-wizard, Kyle Baxter hacks into the CYBER-TRONIX database to see how he fared in a game contest. At the same time, a CT tech genius, Dr. Russell Bennett (John De Lancie- THE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE, TVs STAR TREK:TNG) is tinkering w/ the new, improved EVOLVER robot. Unknown to the CYBER-TRONIX people, Kyle has cheated and wins the contest. His prize? The EVOLVER robot of course! At first, EVOLVER is a "cute" novelty, playing laser-tag-like games w/ Kyle and his friends. Obviously, if EVOLVER remained harmless, then this would be another SHORT CIRCUIT. So, EVOLVER is an AI robot w/ a mind of its own. As a learning robot, it corrects itself whenever it makes a mistake. This makes it not only a superior game player, but also a stealthy, though clunky, killing machine! EVOLVER quickly becomes dangerous, trying out its now-lethal techniques on an unsuspecting high school jock. Kyle and his family have no idea that EVOLVER is more than a toy. It's a sophisticated weapon, secretly developed for military use. As the bodies pile up, EVOLVER grows ever more difficult to defeat. It's up to Kyle and Dr. Bennett to find a way to stop this droid of doom! If you like killer robot movies like CHOPPING MALL, then you should love this. The cheeeze-factor is into the stratosphere, making EVOLVER a terabyte's worth of fun! Co-stars Cindy Pickett (STEPDAUGHTER) as Kyle's mum. A classic!...

Format: DVD
...but can be fun if you view it with no expectations. This 1995 sci-fi flick stars Ethan Randall (who is now Ethan Embry) as a whiz-kid teenager who wins a video game robot (Evolver) in a contest he rigs. The Evolver was created by a scientist played by John DeLancie, who at one time was working on a similar robot for the Department of Defense. Of course, this experiment went wrong and Evolver ended up shelved because it killed some soldiers in a test run. Anyway, you know what to expect. Evolver evolves into a killing machine who picks up suggestions for murder from watching tv programs, and soon Evolver is running rampant out to kill his "enemies." Voiced by the marvelous William H. Macy, Evolver is reminiscent of the robot on tv's LOST IN SPACE in that he also develops his own sick sense of humor. Director Mark Rosman keeps the pace interesting, and if everything has been done better since, EVOLVER is a moderately entertaining movie, a little too violent for small children, however.

I have to say that the action in this film was creative and exiting. Sadly, the acting and dialogue was horrid. The plot was predictable. All of the actors other than Ethan Embry were just plain bad at acting. If there was halfway decent acting and dialogue in "Evolver", the film would have been a spectacurlar success. For that reason, I have to say that "Evolver" is one of the most well made 'bad' movies that I have ever seen.

This film follows in the tradition of the Child's Play and Puppet master films. It is a pretty entertaining low budget sci fi effort and is very funny at times without taking itself too seriously.

For the time, with little or no CG available, this is a good movie. The actors are interesting. the plot is standard but the effects are good. A fan of this genre should check this one out

This movie I thorougly love!!! A young man named Kyle played by Ethan Embry plays a robotic laser-tag like video game called Evolver fantasticaly! When he wins a video game contest of Evolver by changing the scores of his opponents, he wins an Evolver Robot!! The robot, Evolver is like a real life version of Lazer Tag. Evolver is quick, very smart, and plays for keeps!!! There are 4 levels to play with him, and every level you beat him, he gets tougher and deadlier.

He also loves to play!!!! When Kyle, or his hot female team-mate Jamie played by Cassidy Rae do not feel like playing with him, he goes looking for others to challenge him!!!! He will do anything to make quick work of anyone who challenges him!!!!!

Only through sneaking up on him, and tricking Evolver is Kyle able to finaly nail the sucker!!

Evolver does get in some good kills!! Anyone who has seen the movie know what I mean!!!! John Delancie is one of those victims he finishes off by blowing up the Cybertronic Van!! BOOM!!

Only reason I watch this is for Cassidy Rae!!!! Thanks to this movie, I now am collecting all the movies she is in!!! She is truly gorgeous!! It's just fun watching her and Ethan team up to defeat this robot.

William H Macy who is also in Mr Holland's Opus who plays the principal gives Evolver is robotic voice!!

Similar robotic themed movies you might like are:: Short Circuit, and it's sequal with Johny 5!! I have them both!! Chopping Mall which are 3 security robots who go after some teens trapped in a mall trying to kill them!!! Have that one too!!!!!

Enjoy!

I bought this as a gift for my daughter. her and I watched the movie together when it first came out. She asked me to find her a copy. And I did at Amazon. She likes her reliving the past with her dad.

An older movie but enjoyable like war games and other movies of this time frame. Worth the time to sit down and watch. Might even recognize some actors from other scifi classics.
