Entertaining; on par with a Sci-fi Chanel original movie

"Look, this ain't a piece of art, nor is it a big budget special effects feature. On the other hand, I was expecting a lot less, and found myself entertained. Yes, it's low-budget. Yes, it's definately B-movie. But if you're in the mood for such fare, then this will satisfy.
Actually, I would give it 3.5 stars, but Joey - er JOSEPH Lawrence is awefully cute, so I'm rounding up."

"Thoroughly enjoyed this entertaining sci-fi feature. As with movies of science fiction one has to use his/her imagination which includes overlooking the overwhelming impossibilities of them (abilities, inventions, etc.). I must add, however, that some impossibilities do not remain impossible and at some future date become possible.
A great find and to me a movie worth the purchase!!!!!!!!"
Very watchable, as entertaining as some big budget sci-fi mo

"I bought this movie on sale, half expecting to turn it off after the first 10 minutes, like a lot of other bargain bin movies I get. This was actually interesting enough to watch all the way through. Acting was good, plot ok. All in all, not a bad sci-fi movie."

"Android Apocalypse: 4 out of 10: Well it did not make me want to poke my eyes out with a dull fork... so it has that going in its favor.
Dateline the future... Phoenix is a domed city surrounded by a horrifying wasteland. (Kind of like now) Humans are in short supply so androids that look exactly like humans do most of the work. Our mullet wearing racist (androidist?) hero loses his shoveling things job to an android. A few eighties flashback fistfights later and he finds himself on the run through the wasteland handcuffed to an android. (Joey Lawrence of Blossom of all people.)
The leads are actually quite good and it is unusual for white trash to be a hero in these (or any) type of films. That is a nice change of pace. The story on the other hand is pretty awful. For example the ending is so truncated they either ran out of money or forgot the whole apocalypse promise of the title.
While Lawrence does his best data impersonation, the other androids are all over the map. Many of them emote more than their human counterparts, while others are clearly the same five grips wearing facemasks.
Set design also needs work. The prison is clearly a factory. The humans headquarters is a glorified office park complete with fernage. (I was having Overdrawn at the Memory Bank flashbacks) In addition, items such as blankets with do not remove tags and Jeep Cherokees litter the film.
Overall a decent if slow Sci-fi time waster. Just do not get you hopes up for an apocalypse.
