Special Effects That Are Less Than Special
7 July 2017 | by william_kosterSee all my reviews

Let's start with an asteroid/planet in outer space that changes directions, then cut to a view of the spinning Earth -- a desktop Earth globe complete with hemispherical seams and latitude/longitude lines -- from which is launched a cartoonish rocket carrying Voyager 2. Subsequent to its launch, Voyager 2 crashes into the planet Robotus -- and visibly shakes it!! -- causing mayhem and setting fire to some of its robotic inhabitants, who run around screaming (robots scream?).

After the carnage is over, the robots meet to discuss the so-called first strike weapon launched by the humans, complete with Voyager's "crummy music" and "bad pictures", and decide to teach the humans that robots are the superior species by using human technology -- like smart phones -- against them. They launch a spaceship from Robotus -- which looks like a giant, orange-light-lit Cocoa Puff -- to Earth.

At that point, I stopped watching. How this movie got 4 1/2 stars out of 10 is beyond my understanding. I had always thought that "Robot Monster" and "Plan 9 From Outer Space" were the epitome of bad science fiction movies, but this is right up (down?) with them. As a project by elementary school children, it just might be okay. As a commercial movie effort, it's amateurish and laughable at best.
