Description

ROBOT JOX
USA | 1989 | 35mm | 84 min.
Director: Stuart Gordon
Cast: Gary Graham, Anne-Marie Johnson, Paul Koslo
Decades before Pacific Rim, director Gordon and writer Joe Haldeman conjured up this futuristic action movie set in a world where war has been outlawed and replaced by gladiatorial matches between giant robots, piloted by men known as robot jockeys. In a way this is the original live-action Transformers movie, but with more handmade charm.
