50’s B-movie enthusiasts and Robot Chicken fans will most likely love The Killer Robots! Crash & Burn. Trying to categorize this movie is not easy. There’s action, comedy, science fiction and Max Headroom (well, sort of) tossed in this product. To describe it on a different level, I think of this movie as Power Rangers meets Hanna-Barbera meets Michael Bay’s Transformers (in a good way) — or should the style be Warhammer 40K? This product looks like a movie Troma would release.
When considering Lloyd Kaufman appeared in The Killer Robots and the Battle for the Cosmic Potato (2009), I am not surprised that the creative mind behind the band, that movie and this, Sam Gaffin, knows him. This latest flick does not feel like a sequel. If only an added screener of this prior product was offered, I would be interested in finding out if it is or not. Watching this film is about getting an experience over enjoying it for its plot. To feel it can also be found in the crazy insane trailer and this feature is due to arrive on VOD (iTunes, Google Play and Amazon) on July 15th. The full product is just as batty and I love it!
