Robot Jox (1990)

Director Stuart Gordon (“Re-Animator”) takes a stab at sci-fi in this film about futuristic gladiators. The warriors man gigantic robots, which resemble Transformer toys, and battle for their nations to win properties such as Alaska.

The concept isn’t bad, but the execution comes off like a Japanese monster movie starring American television actors. Rated PG.
