Product Description

It's the year 2030, and man's worst nightmares have become an oppressive reality in CRASH AND BURN. Big Brother has come to life in the form of Unicom, an all-powerful conglomerate that emerged in the wake of a devastating global economic collapse. A group of dissenters has surfaced to fight Unicom's autocracy and stop the murderous Synthoid — a humanlike robot programmed to kill all those who pose a threat to the organization. Starring Paul Ganus, Megan Ward (Dark Skies), Bill Moseley and Ralph Waite (Cliffhanger), and directed by Charles Band. The ultimate battle between metallic giants begins in ROBOT WARS when a malicious foreign dignitary hijacks the last mega-robot on Earth, the MRAS-2, and threatens to unleash its crushing powers against the people of the Eastern Alliance. There's only one force magnificent enough to stop the MRAS-2: a MEGA-1 robot hidden under the city. It's up to a renegade pilot, his engineer and a brilliant archaeologist to revive the MEGA-1 and reestablish world peace. Starring Don Michael Paul (writer/director Half Past Dead), Barbara Crampton (Reanimator) and Lisa Rinna (Melrose Place).

Well I bought this for the movie Robot Wars, because when i was about 6-10 it was my favorite VHS to rent from the movie store.
Watching it again makes me face palm very hard, but still nice to see somthing that was not availible to me for many years.

The cheese in your nostalgia sandwich Feb. 16 2012
By Mel G. - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
It's the future, and shoulder pads are back in style. These movies have everything you fondly remember about bad early 90's sci-fi. Computer displays filmed straight off a CRT? Check. Vehicle occupants shaking and lurching out of sync with each other? Check. Gratuitous bad one-liners? Check. Horrible blue-screen halos? All. Day. Long. What's not to like?

Out of the two movies included, Robot Wars is easily the more dated, with 90's hair and "futurist" fashion all over the place. Crash And Burn holds up surprisingly well, with only a few characters hamming it up for the camera or dated by their hairstyles. Sure the story's derivative, but there's only so many variations on the "which one of us is the alien/monster/psycho/robot" genre to begin with, and for a low-budget film, it does just fine.

The conversion itself is wonderfully awful as well, with visible film grain galore. Crash And Burn has a few more transfer flaws than Robot Wars, and during the final battle, it seems as if someone were purposefully messing with the video tape on which this movie had been kept for the last 20 years. Somehow, though, even that made me smile. I half-expected a "technical difficulties" card to pop up, accompanied by some bad lounge music. This is a must-have addition to any guilty pleasure movie collection.

These movies are fun, but the no-frills disc won't be the tribute Band deserves July 13 2011
By DVD Verdict - Published on Amazon.com
Judge Mac McEntire, DVD Verdict -- "The cheesy B-movie is an interesting flavor of movie. It might not be quality in a classical cinema sense, but when you're watching a "good" bad movie, you know it. Such is the case with Crash and Burn and Robot Wars. They are clunky, plot-holed, low-budget, and sleazy, but there is that intangible yet all-important fun aspect to them that can't be beat. After the apocalypse, most of the world has been reduced to uninhabitable deserts, and yet everybody's hair looks great. Crash and Burn gets off to a slow start, as we're introduced to this future world and the evil corporation/conspiracy running it. After the lengthy info-dumps are over, our giant-haired hero reaches the TV station, and the robot mayhem finally kicks in. It's true that movie fans have seen it all before--the "killer robot that looks just like a human" is a lift from The Terminator and the "testing the blood to see who's human and who isn't" scene is straight out of Carpenter's The Thing--but it's played with just enough earnestness that you can't help but go along with the ride. But, hey, it's all about the giant robot action, right? That's what the movie promises, right? Well, I'm telling you right now that if you want giant robot action, then you've got...to wait until the last ten minutes of the movie. Robot Wars ups the effects ante with a lot more stop motion robot fighting, but somehow it just isn't as much fun as the first. For one, the filmmakers are thinking a lot bigger, so instead of a small group of folks in one remote location, we're following a bigger cast as they traverse the nightmarish future landscape, visiting numerous locales. I can't fault the creators for wanting to go epic, but they bit off more than they can chew. We don't get to know the characters as well as we do in Crash and Burn. Also the comedy is bigger and broader; there's a joke every couple of minutes in the flick, and not once did I laugh. The actual robot fighting is decent, with the big showdown being between a giant scorpion-shaped 'bot and the heroic MEGA-1. It's up to you if you want to sit through a lot of tedium before you get to that point. The video and audio could be better. The full frame image is soft throughout, and the sound is middle-of-the-road, not really as immersive or booming as you'd expect giant robot fighting to be. Not only are there no extras, but the disc is so bare bones you don't even get things like chapter titles."

Decent Dec 20 2013

There are not a lot of giant-robot movies available, so I put these in the "beggars can't be choosers" category. Both are B-movies that utilize stop-motion for the robots. Still, they are worth watching if you are a real fan of the genre.
Have to give one stair to the movies. Not seller June 7 2014

The movies recommended, just watch terminator or. Crash and burn was another version of terminator but without time travel. The picture of the robot on front was only seen for 2 full minutes of the whole movie... The cover is "bate" to make it look interesting, action packed, futuristic and vintage. Not worth it... Not a sequel to Robot Jocks

Robot wars, at least it has scenes with the robot through out the movie. Not worth it. However not ad bad as crash and burn.
Robot Wars is "PG", Crash and Burn is "R++++". Not a good family pack. Very disappointed .... July 11 2015

Really disappointed with this one. A "PG" movie packaged with an "R+++" rated movie.
ROBOT WARS was fun to see, again (after many years ago), however, "Crash and Burn" has only 5 minutes of "robot" action toward the very end, no noticable plot, way too much "sex" (and flesh) for the kids (yup, what would you expect being combined with a PG movie?????). I would like to return it and just get the "Robot Wars" by itself.
