A killer robot on the loose, a psychotic Brad Dourif, cheesy 90's one-liners... there is a plenty to enjoy in this action-packed thrill-ride. In some ways, I found it similar to Hardware, another movie that we had recently watched and reviewed, except it swaps the artistic angle for more and more action though it also has some similar flaws, the main being that this movie does tack on a little longer than it should have. The character Yutani in this movie even has the same awkward personality about him that Shades had in Hardware.
While the cheesy 90's flavour is a nostalgic positive, it's also a little cringey at times like with that stupid looking gear that they use for the Hardman project. It's almost like putting on a more sophisticated Nintendo powerglove as a full body suit. However, Death Machine overall is a good movie with some decent actors in it. Most fans of action, sci-fi, horror movies should have fun with it.
