Flawed but basically interesting
Robot Jox tries hard, but is fundamentally a series of fight scenes strung together — robot against robot, man against man, man against woman. The premise had potential, but it seems the script wasn’t really given the couple of more drafts it needed. Still, it was fairly good, for a science fiction action movie. Part of it was because the script was by Joe Haldeman. For those who aren’t familiar with the name, Haldeman wrote the award-winning science fiction novel “The Forever War.” It’s considered one of the very best powered battle armor novels, right up there with Robert Heinlein’s “Starship Troopers” and John Steakley’s “Armor.” And this movie is really more like a giant powered battle armor movie, rather than giant robots. It’s closer to what fans would have wanted instead of the travesty that was Paul Verhoeven’s “Starship Troopers,” which bore only a passing resemblance to the novel it was based on.

Despite some assumptions, this really isn’t based on Homer’s “Iliad.” A couple of names are all they had in common. Achilles having his robot’s foot blown off had no parallel in the Iliad, which didn’t include Achilles’ death. Nor was the ancient Achilles a noble warrior. He was the mightiest, but also vengeful and petty. Even the robot jock killed off in the first scene doesn’t fit. He was named Hercules, while the Greek Iliad would have had Herakles.

The effects were fairly good for the time and the budget. True, it wasn’t comparable to “Terminator 2” a year later, but that movie cost ten times as much. The stop motion was almost as good as the robotic walkers in “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi.” Better, in fact, than a lot of Ray Harryhausen animation, which is highly regarded, but quite dated.

Don’t bring high expectations into this and you probably won’t be disappointed. It’s better than a lot of other low-budget flicks and even some big-budget blockbuster wannabes that have better effects but far worse scripts.

Rock N Sock Robots
Before there was Pacific Rim, Real Steel, Power Rangers, and others. There was Robot Jox. This sci-fiction fighting robot concept has two federations fighting over territory using giant mechs in a post- apocalyptic world. The two federations are the Russian Confederation & the Western Market after fifthly year after a nuclear holocaust between USSR & USA, open war is forbidden by the surviving two nations. To resolve conflicts, the Market and Confederation hold gladiator-style matches between giant robots, piloted by “robot jox”. The most successful powerful robot jox Market has is Achilles (Gary Graham) whom supported by robot designer “Doc” Matsumoto (Danny Kamekona), a walking, talking Japanese stereotype. Talking about stereotypes, there is the strategist redneck, Tex Conway (Michael Alldredge). Tex is the only jock to win all ten of his contract fights, and Achilles is closing in his record. Achilles’ tenth fight will be against his bitter rival, the Confederation’s Alexander (Paul Koslo) in a desert land. The desert land was created when the nuclear war wasted the ozone layer, causing deserts and drought to pop out. Without much trees to give oxygen, outside the cities, people either have to wear protective clothing or stay under panels. Those rich enough are able to watch the fight in roof bleachers. Front row tickets to see a giant robot death match with stray missiles and lasers. What could possibly go wrong? During the battle, Achilles attempts to intercept a wayward projectile launched by Alexander, and his robot collapses on top of the bleachers full of spectators, ending the fight. This is where, there is two version of the film comes in. After Achilles’ robot falls on the spectators, there are more shots of both Achilles’ bloody face and of the dead bodies in the stands. The Motion Picture Association of America film rating system database indicates that Robot Jox was originally rated PG–13, but trimmed to obtain PG. In the PG version, these shots were cut. In a post-match conference, the referees decide that the match is inconclusive and schedule a rematch. Achilles, shaken by the accident and the deaths of the spectators, insists the fight was his contractual tenth match and retires, much to the disapproval of his fans. A group of genetically engineered “gen jox” also known by their slang name ‘tubies’ are breed just to fight. Athena (Anne-Marie Johnson) a gen jox is chosen to replace Achilles. Concerned that she may not win, Achilles agrees to fight Alexander again, which infuriates Athena trying to seek glory. I don’t know if this is cause by him having a thing for Athena or just the fact he realizes that a female genetically engineered athlete, Athena, will replace him, and he might be a sexism pig. He just goes ahead and steals the spot light, and take over when Athena is quickly defeated. Without giving too much away, the movie is interested with pseudo-science terms, there seem be a bit of racism conflict between tubies and normal humans. I would love to see more of that, but the ending leaves a bad taste in audience. It’s ends when things are not clearly solves and a very cheesy ending with both sides agreeing to not fight each other after what it seems like them nearly killing each other for minutes. The film is supposed to be a science fiction adaptation of the Iliad, but after watching this movie, it is clears it is not. The film seems to be a bit of rip-off of the Battle Tech series from the 1980’s. I do like seeing good old fashion stop motion and animatronics. While, it is outdated, it’s was pretty good at the time. Check it out if you’re a fan of fighting robots with your own risk. While it’s a good B-list movie, I would rather play Rock ‘n Sock Robots than watch the movie multiply times.
