Okay, we had Alien in 1979, The Terminator in 1984, Runaway from 1984, Aliens in 1986, Predator in 1987, plenty of high tech horror stuff to learn from... and this movie is from 1990.
We have spent 70 minutes already and there's been only ONE attack scene from the creature?
Come on, you can do better than that.
@ella_kane @mdhughes Nah, I don't buy it. They could have split that five minute scene into two (or maybe three) two-minute horror scenes, each more brutal than the previous. A shot of the robot getting more powerful as it began collecting more and more parts would have been way better.
Wait - there WAS a similar movie in this vein: Moontrap (1989). A war robot found in a moon colony started rebuilding itself from scrap. The movie was a flop, but they got the suspense right.
@rick_777 @ella_kane And my post when I watched it for the first time in decades: https://mdhughes.tech/2017/12/21/mark-13-thursday-music/
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
