Editorial Reviews

When a plane carrying a pair of top secret military robots crashes on a deserted Pacific island, a team of Navy SEALS must go in, find them, and try to "turn them off." But that's not so easy! The Shock Wave robots were originally built as the next generation of Mars Rovers, but were so successfully designed that they were quickly reengineered to replace the Army's infantry as the first wave of attack when trying to control hostile territories and root out terrorists wherever they may be. An armor-plated walking arsenal, each unit is equipped with sophisticated lasers, guidance and weapons systems, advanced locomotion and terrain maneuverability, and state-of-the-art artificial intelligence technology. The longer they're on, the smarter they get. Now it's up to the specially selected Navy SEA unit armed with the latest military prototype particle canons specifically designed to destroy band-wired robots to contain the threat and salvage any of the technology that they can. But the robots have grown too smart, and they've figured out how to dismantle the guns, leaving our team helpless against this mechanical onslaught. With time quickly running out, this team must figure out how to outwit and deactivate the machines before they become the new dominant species on Earth.

3.0 out of 5 stars This Movie Seems Familiar January 30, 2007
Format:DVD
If you have seen the movie Curse of the Komodo then you will recognize a lot of this film. Artificially intelligent war machines prove to be more indestructible and less controllable than designed (they look like they stepped out of The Incredibles). On goes berserk in the film's opening and we never learn its final fate. Two more are being carried on a plane that crashes in the Pacific. The military puts together a team to locate the plane and the missing war machines. Meanwhile, a group of crooks rob a cruise ship, flee in a helicopter, and are forced down onto a Pacific island by a storm. On the island they run into the activated war machines who attack and steal their helicopter (an interesting new twist). The military arrives, runs into the crooks, and they all join forces to stop the robots and get off of the island.

The robots prove to be very hard to stop even with a special weapon meant to be able to do so. There are two deadlines that the team must meet. One is to get off the island before the military nukes the island to stop the robots. The second is to stop the robots before they rig the helicopter to get them off the island. Of course the team needs the helicopter to leave as another storm is preventing their radio from working to summon their own. The film is then filled with action, special effects, and peppered with scenes of the military debating how to handle the situation. Who survives and how will have to be left to the viewer.

The main difference between this film and Curse of the Komodo is that this cast has been filled out with a lot of recognizable names. There are three Star Trek members from three different series, one from Lost in Space, and Tim Thomerson of so many Full Moon projects.

2.0 out of 5 stars Can't shake that "made for sci-fi" channel feeling. November 8, 2006
Format:DVD
The story line itself is not entirely bad. A bit worn, but workable for a sci-fi flick. Tired old "set 'em up, pick 'em off" plot. And some awful acting. Awful to the point of funny. One girl, on the plane at the beginning, gripped by the machine's claw, frees herself, and then, with the machine not even touching her, she runs, jumps and throws herself on the floor in a heap. I keep thinking this must have been the setup act for a CGI scene that they forgot to do. It's hilarious.

But the movie spends what seems about half it's entire length reiterating the same scene. Guys standing in front of the machine shooting at it with AR-15's. I mean, it doesn't work, and they continue to spend their entire time trying to shoot it with guns they know won't do the job.

After the twentieth gun battle with two guys standing on front of the machine shooting at it, and the machine standing there unfazed, I'm yawning.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent B-grade movie. July 25, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
First, just let me say, that the four star review I gave this movie is reflective of B-movies only, not theatrical releases. That being said, this is one of the better B-movies I've seen in awhile.
The story isn't anything special, nor is it as silly and contrived as so many I've seen. A plane full of military robots crash on a deserted island and a crack military team is brought in to recover them. Also in the mix is a group of thieves whose own helicopter crashed on the island after a heist(what are the odds???).
As one reviewer mentioned, the soliders spend a lot of time shooting at the robots, but it is either to try and divert their attention away from one of their own before the person gets killed, or in an attempt to hit a small weak point on their heads. Personally, I didn't find it all that boring. The only scene where it really got on my nerves was in the very beginning, when a solider in the back of a pick-up fires off about fifty continuous rounds from a handgun while trying to escape...over rough terrain...and the robot is a hundred yards away...and he has no idea the thing has a weak spot. I would have rather listened to him scream like a little girl for five minutes then keep shooting that stupid gun. At least that would have been funny.
Speaking of funny, as another reviewer mentioned, there is a early scene(on the plane that is carrying the robots) when a woman throws herself to the floor as if one of the robots tentacles did it, but the closest one to her is going after somebody else. Priceless. In most of the "Making of" segments, you never really get to see the actors reacting to the CGI effects that aren't there.

4.0 out of 5 stars pretty cool for a direct to video thing. November 18, 2006
Format:DVD
with tons and tons of direct to video junk coming out every month i thought this was kind of cool. the cg that they can pull off these days with little budgets is amazing. i thought this movie was pretty entertaining for the most part. you gotta love the robots that just kill everything. if you want a goofy-action-robots-killing-people movie this one is for you. give it a shot. you can do lots worse.

3.0 out of 5 stars Open Skull And Extract Brain... January 10, 2009
Format:DVD
Want to see Michael Dorn without his head-ridges? How about Robert Picardo in non-holographic form? Well, they're both right here in SHOCKWAVE! Dorn plays an army general and Picardo is a scientist in this Jim Wynorski cheeze-log. Luckily, Jim's a big fan of killer robots (and who isn't??), so SHOCKWAVE has two unstoppable, clanking metal marauders running amok. We also get a 5-man SEAL team, a trio of homicidal robbers, a chopper pilot, and a science babe to serve as robo-fodder. As added attractions, there's Bill Mumy (Lost In Space, Babylon 5),and Tim Thomerson (Trancers, Near Dark) in fairly useless cameos! Plus, George Tekei (Don't call him Sulu!) as an airline pilot. SHOCKWAVE is a watchable saturday afternoon time-annihilator... P.S.- My favorite part is when one of the robots hurls the head robber guy into a 6-ton boulder, and it wobbles! Priceless!...

5.0 out of 5 stars so hammy its great!!!!
This is not a movie for the hard core sci fi fiends. Instead it is an old movie whose poor special effects help it to have some charm.
