Part gladiator battle and part Japanese giant robot demolition derby, rock 'em, sock 'em Heavy Gear puts the "extreme" in extreme sports. Slickly produced in the CGI style of Roughnecks: The Starship Troopers Chronicles, this TV series, about a mechanical whiz kid who wants nothing more than to be a Heavy Gear ace, is based on a hit video game and it shows. The premise of battles between warring "platoons" on a far-off planet, played out as a series of bread-and-circuses arena games, is a tad absurd. For sheer spectacle, however, these robot wars are like a wild fantasy of professional wrestling, right down to the colorful good guys, the villainous bad guys, and the screaming crowds hanging on every ground-shaking pile-driver punch. Though originally shown on TV, the series has been rated PG-13 for "pervasive action violence." The mecha-violence is bloodless but almost nonstop at times and does put characters in life-threatening situations, so parents of younger kids should be wary. --Sean Axmaker

3.0 out of 5 stars Good graphics .. no plot. October 29, 2002
Heavy Gear is a CGI animated show, derived from a videogame of the same name, about the adventures of young mechanic who gets to realize his dream of becoming a robot warrior.
While the graphics and animation are extremely well done, the show is clearly targeted at a fairly young audience (8-13). Older viewers expecting a show with the sophistication of Starship Troopers will be disappointed. Each episode is more or less a 1/2 hour CGI movie that feels like a video game session (put a bunch of robots in an arena and fight it out with a bare semblance of a plot).
