Editorial Reviews

It’s the year 2030, and man’s worst nightmares have become an oppressive reality in Crash And Burn. Big Brother has come to life in the form of Unicom, an all-powerful conglomerate that emerged in the wake of a devastating global economic collapse. A group of dissenters has surfaced to fight Unicom’s autocracy and stop the murderous Synthoid a humanlike robot programmed to kill all those who pose a threat to the organization. Starring Paul Ganus, Megan Ward (Dark Skies), Bill Moseley and Ralph Waite (Cliffhanger), and directed by Charles Band.

The ultimate battle between metallic giants begins in Robot Wars when a malicious foreign dignitary hijacks the last mega-robot on Earth, the MRAS-2, and threatens to unleash its crushing powers against the people of the Eastern Alliance. There’s only one force magnificent enough to stop the MRAS-2: a MEGA-1 robot hidden under the city. It’s up to a renegade pilot, his engineer and a brilliant archaeologist to revive the MEGA-1 and reestablish world peace. Starring Don Michael Paul (writer/director Half Past Dead), Barbara Crampton (Reanimator) and Lisa Rinna (Melrose Place).

4.0 out of 5 stars The cheese in your nostalgia sandwich February 16, 2012
Verified Purchase
It's the future, and shoulder pads are back in style. These movies have everything you fondly remember about bad early 90's sci-fi. Computer displays filmed straight off a CRT? Check. Vehicle occupants shaking and lurching out of sync with each other? Check. Gratuitous bad one-liners? Check. Horrible blue-screen halos? All. Day. Long. What's not to like?

Out of the two movies included, Robot Wars is easily the more dated, with 90's hair and "futurist" fashion all over the place. Crash And Burn holds up surprisingly well, with only a few characters hamming it up for the camera or dated by their hairstyles. Sure the story's derivative, but there's only so many variations on the "which one of us is the alien/monster/psycho/robot" genre to begin with, and for a low-budget film, it does just fine.

The conversion itself is wonderfully awful as well, with visible film grain galore. Crash And Burn has a few more transfer flaws than Robot Wars, and during the final battle, it seems as if someone were purposefully messing with the video tape on which this movie had been kept for the last 20 years. Somehow, though, even that made me smile. I half-expected a "technical difficulties" card to pop up, accompanied by some bad lounge music. This is a must-have addition to any guilty pleasure movie collection.

There are not a lot of giant-robot movies available, so I put these in the "beggars can't be choosers" category. Both are B-movies that utilize stop-motion for the robots. Still, they are worth watching if you are a real fan of the genre.

Judge Mac McEntire, DVD Verdict -- "The cheesy B-movie is an interesting flavor of movie. It might not be quality in a classical cinema sense, but when you're watching a "good" bad movie, you know it. Such is the case with Crash and Burn and Robot Wars. They are clunky, plot-holed, low-budget, and sleazy, but there is that intangible yet all-important fun aspect to them that can't be beat. After the apocalypse, most of the world has been reduced to uninhabitable deserts, and yet everybody's hair looks great. Crash and Burn gets off to a slow start, as we're introduced to this future world and the evil corporation/conspiracy running it. After the lengthy info-dumps are over, our giant-haired hero reaches the TV station, and the robot mayhem finally kicks in. It's true that movie fans have seen it all before--the "killer robot that looks just like a human" is a lift from The Terminator and the "testing the blood to see who's human and who isn't" scene is straight out of Carpenter's The Thing--but it's played with just enough earnestness that you can't help but go along with the ride. But, hey, it's all about the giant robot action, right? That's what the movie promises, right? Well, I'm telling you right now that if you want giant robot action, then you've got...to wait until the last ten minutes of the movie. Robot Wars ups the effects ante with a lot more stop motion robot fighting, but somehow it just isn't as much fun as the first. For one, the filmmakers are thinking a lot bigger, so instead of a small group of folks in one remote location, we're following a bigger cast as they traverse the nightmarish future landscape, visiting numerous locales. I can't fault the creators for wanting to go epic, but they bit off more than they can chew. Read more ›

Both of these movies were low budget . The action was ok for what they were, but my two boys (6 & 11) thought the acting was a little lame.

4.0 out of 5 stars giant robot double June 18, 2014
before 'pacific rim' and 'atlantic rim' we had these films about giant robots. in crash and burn the robot only has a cameo role as the film is more about fighting an evil corporation that has developed 'synthoids' to infiltrate the population

1.0 out of 5 stars Have to give one stair to the movies. Not seller June 7, 2014
Verified Purchase
The movies recommended, just watch terminator or. Crash and burn was another version of terminator but without time travel. The picture of the robot on front was only seen for 2 full minutes of the whole movie... The cover is "bate" to make it look interesting, action packed, futuristic and vintage. Not worth it... Not a sequel to Robot Jocks

Robot wars, at least it has scenes with the robot through out the movie. Not worth it. However not ad bad as crash and burn.

Well I watched one of them halfway through and it brought back memories of seeing them on late night cable. However, my son then broke my disk.

These movies are alright, but are not real classics in the sci-fi world. I found them to be a bit long winded with no action. sorry
