Robot Jox (1990)

Robot Jox is a sci-fi movie from 1990 starring people you’ve never heard of, one of which you’d only barely recognize. It was apparently big budget, which ruined its studio Empire Pictures.

The story is one as old as time itself: Its the post WW3 future. War is outlawed, and disputes are settled via human-piloted, giant-robot battles. As you can imagine, its pretty sweet if you’re 14 years old and a huge nerd like I am was.

Anyway, it’s come up from the recesses of my vast pop-culture database because the protagonist character is named Achilles.  The Russian enemy in the movie yells it often, and with a Russian accent. Anyway, here’s the trailer.
