In this low budget sci fi/horror set in the "near future" of 2003 (haha), a crazed inventor sics his top secret pet project - a giant killer robot - on his employer's new CEO after she fires him. The so-called "Warbeast" then chases her all over the company's high tech skyscraper.
I have read a lot of rave reviews of this flick online claiming it to be some sort of undiscovered cult sci-fi classic, but I wonder if those people saw the same movie I did. This was a loud, irritating flick pieced together from bits stolen out of "Aliens," "The Terminator" and "Hardware," that gave me a screaming headache. Don't bother.

A masterpiece in every facet of film making.

"A genuine classic of the sci-fi genre, Death Machine kidnaps the audience into a dark world of unfulfilled desires, humanitarian terrorists, and psycho death bots. Brad Dourif delivers yet another oscar caliber perfomance as Jack Dante, a man whose heart is torn between explicit love for his upper management and his primordial urge to terminate all forms of life. A triumvirate of warriors guided by a needlessly painted man must put an end to Dante's wave of destruction--THAT IS THE DEATH MACHINE!!!! And boy, does Mayhem ensue. Stylized with crisp cinematography, a pulse pounding soundtrack, spine-chilling dialogue, and ingenious plotting, Death Machine made its way onto no Top Ten lists of 1995---EXCEPT MINE!!!!!"
I took a chance on this one based on the stirling reviews...

"And it really did pay off. I thoroughly enjoyed this sci-fi/techno-thriller/horror romp...YES! A ROMP! Norrington wrote a great script and the action sequences are tight. He also gets great performances from his actors. Dourif, of course, is fantastic as the mad scientist with a love-lorn crush on his boss that leans to the murderous side...What seperates DEATH MACHINE from the majority of B-movie straight-to-video fare goes way beyond great special effects and lots of action and gore. The characters are actually ENGAGING. Usually, with low-budget horror, I'm HOPING most of the characters are done away with, but not with DEATH MACHINE. I liked these characters. I didn't want them to die. Of course, this heightens the overall tension of the film and makes it a great viewing experience.Dourif might be a scene-stealer, but this is Norrington's film all of the way. He wrote a fantastic script. His direction was on the mark. And he got the most out of his cast.DEATH MACHINE is definitely worth the 9.99. Without a doubt."
Buy R2 version

"This movie is great when you see the original version.
This version is crap.....
UK release is in widescreen and runs about 12 mins longer."
