    Boring, Irritating Sounds

    ** TOTAL SPOILERS **

    The movie is boring. Nothing of interest happens from about the 5 min
    mark until about the 40 min mark, 25 to 30 minutes of that could have
    easily been scrapped and it wouldn’t have matter one bit.

    It has far to many annoying sounds, especially early on. Several times
    there is a high pitched whine that goes on for way, way too long. Other
    sounds that would normally not be an issue, like the alert buzzer in
    the spaceship, become irritating because the scenes are dragged out far
    too long.

    As soon as the story actually starts moving, the twist becomes
    painfully obvious, to the audience at least, though the protagonist is
    a slow one and seems oblivious to what is, literally in a couple cases,
    right in front of his face. SPOILERS… Oh my God. He’s back. He’s
    home. All the time, it was… They finally really did it. Those
    Maniacs! They blew it up! Ah, damn them! God damn them all to hell! On
    the more technical side, the main/only actor did a reasonable enough
    job, with what he was given. The effects weren’t spectacular, but they
    were good enough with a few, like the robot dog, being pretty good. The
    camera work on the other hand was as boring as the story. Nothing
    except plain straight shots, lacking any flare or even a hint that the
    director understands camera angles are a tool to help tell the story,
    not just a device to record it.

    An interesting concept, but that is pretty much the only positive thing
    I can say about this movie. 3/10 would not watch again.

    Surprisingly excellent

    If like me you spend more time paging through streaming services
    looking for something decent to watch than actually watching movies,
    then you probably have a similar process of compiling a shortlist of
    movies that don’t have stupid titles, don’t have stupid covers, aren’t
    made by a certain science fiction channel, and don’t have a blurb
    featuring the words ”zombie” or ”found footage”. I then run my list
    past IMDb’s and other aggregators’ reviews to arrive at the Least Worst
    Film.

    And thus it was with ”Robot World”, which nearly didn’t make the cut
    because it doesn’t feature at all on most review sites, and has a
    different name on IMDb (”Reconnoiter”), all of which are usually very
    bad signs indeed.

    But on this particular evening the competition was unusually dire, so I
    decided to go for it, and boy was I glad I did!

    This film has a tiny crew, no doubt a tiny budget, and practically no
    cast at all. Yet it delivers a tight, well-plotted, well-paced story
    with considerable aplomb, and surprisingly decent visual effects to
    boot. At times it reminded me of Moon, Sunshine, or Extant, and is
    heavily influenced by 2001 and Battlestar Galactica. Maybe a hint of
    Blake’s 7 (upholstery, mainly).

    This exceedingly fine British film is 1000 times better than most of
    the dross out there that has 1000 times the budget, and I hope that
    Rendered Pictures go from strength to strength. It is so refreshing to
    be *pleasantly* surprised by on online movie these days.

    Do yourself a favour and watch it, then find their website and read the
    production blog, and marvel at how such a film came to be!

    UNFORTUNATELY watched this movie Because ”1000 Times” . . . yada yada. Don’t waste your time (unless thoroughly bored).

    So boring

    The basic idea of the movie is an interesting one but everything else
    is terrible. There’s a huge lack of dialogue/monologue and I might have
    been OK with that if it wasn’t for the annoying cinematography and
    boring story. Most of the movie is shaky as if it was shot by a cell
    phone in the hands of someone with multiple sclerosis.

    The premise is interesting except they give away the ‘big secret’
    halfway through. The one and only human character is really slow with
    figuring things out, leaving viewers to sit through the rest of it
    wishing they could smack him.

    If you have young children who don’t want to go to sleep at night, this
    might do the trick.

    Waisted

    I bought this movie at Walmart. I don’t remember how much I paid for it
    but it was more than $5 and too much in my opinion. The story could
    have been great. I love robot movies and apocalyptic movies. The cover
    looks good, the description on the back looked good. But the movie was
    not. If it was about half the as long maybe it would have been better.
    Actor did OK given what he had to work with. But I felt like I was
    watching a silent movie with mood music playing in the background for
    70% of the movie. Loads of things wrong with this movie that prevent it
    from being what it could have been. If you have an hour plus to waist
    and can watch this movie for free! This is a good way to waist it. If
    you can’t fall asleep and are browsing through the free movies and this
    movie pops up. Put it on, YOU WILL FALL ASLEEP!

    A slow-witted, family-made UK film.

    Not much going on here at all

    I was intrigued by the picture used on Amazon to promote the movie, and
    the description sounded like it would be at least fairly interesting.
    Not even close. Worst of all, I paid $3.00 for it. Free would have been
    bad enough.

    We see these Acme Corp robots just a few times (looking NOTHING like
    the high tech robot used to promote the film), but there’s little
    insight into why they’re going about killing everything in sight. To
    protect the few survivors of the holocaust? But by the looks of it, the
    robots would kill them too. Who knows? And maybe the details were there
    somewhere, but I got so bored with such a slow paced, unproductive
    story line, if you can call it that, I kept skipping ahead.

    There’s a few revelatory moments, but the majority of the film is just
    very long, drawn out moments, one to the next, over and over again.
    Here’s a suggestion, if you want torture, try the less time consuming
    variety, like maybe a good punch to the face as a superior alternative
    to this movie.

    Kidding, right?

    The only interesting things in this flick are the robots (which
    actually do exist as I have seen them in trade publications). The cover
    photo has NOTHING to do with the content BTW and that robot does not
    appear anywhere in the movie. I’m not sure how this film could have won
    any awards as listed in the Trivia section. Perhaps that Trivia comment
    should be checked for accuracy. The action, if one could refer to it as
    that, is slowwwwww and the annoying ”black screen” pauses only add to
    the pain. The character is clearly not the trained astronaut or
    military figure one would think would be sent on such a mission. He
    doesn’t even know how to use the simple device he finds about halfway
    through (though most 6-year-olds today would have no problem using it).
    By the end of the movie a possible ending begins to appear … and is
    then abandoned entirely thus the movie … does NOT end! It just stops
    mid-yawn.

    Solid Movie, Could Have Used More!

    I loved this movie. Judging by the artwork I expected a dumb movie that
    I could just have a have a drink, watch, criticize and and go to bed. I
    was pleasantly surprised by the believable graphics, (most sci-fi films
    over due it and it ends up looking plastic and fake) the amazing plot
    and eeriness of it. I value authenticity in sci-fi films and this film
    has it all. Definitely a thinking mans’s movie. The only thing I would
    criticize is the artwork, (they were clearly trying to sell it as
    something other than what it was and that alone is the closest I come
    to understanding why it has such low ratings) and lastly the ending
    could have been a little more complete.

    A decent story for a twilight zone episode, not for a full length movie.

    Don’t expect rock-em sock-em action from this robot movie. This is not
    the worst sci-fi flick I’ve ever seen. The premise is great, it just
    isn’t enough to fill 82 minutes. This would have made a great Outer
    Limits, or Twilight Zone episode. Though the budget was obviously
    pretty low, they did a fairly good job with what they had. The space
    scenes looked pretty good. The CGI robots were pretty bad, but again,
    I’ve seen worse. Aside from a home movie reel of people having a
    barbecue, the only person you see throughout the entire movie, is the
    protagonist. Well, him and a dream baby, for no apparent reason. Ian
    Rowe’s performance was pretty good, but he didn’t have many lines to
    deliver either. Maybe four or five total throughout the whole movie.
    Overall, the movie is a bit boring. There were some robot fight scenes,
    here and there, but even those were lackluster, and, well… robotic.
    I’m a die hard sci-fi fan, so I kind of enjoyed it, but if you don’t
    REALLY like science fiction, I’d avoid it. If they had more money to
    sharpen up the graphics, and if it were fleshed out a bit more, it
    could have been a really great movie. If you do watch it, expect a slow
    paced, not terribly made, low budget movie.

    You’d be better off watching Blade Runner!

    This is so bad, even the kids don’t have a piracy torrent for it
    online! All this sh|t is on YOUTUBE for at least 2-3 years now, we
    already have gyro-balanced robots now! Geez, what a load of bullocks,
    I’ve seen ALL this crap already. So WHO is this putz that decided to
    take experimental D.o.D. crap and make a sci-fi flick out of it? Well,
    the story is NOT EVEN FIT FOR SCI-FI CHANNEL, so skip it. Read a Bible!

    Another Fine Example

    Another great example that well done science fiction does not require
    dozens of idiotic CGI fight scenes , dizzying sequence after dizzy
    sequence. How ever much they made this movie for was well spent money.
    All it takes is a little imagination and not have a need to see karate
    chop moves on speed or ridiculous romantic side stories juxtaposed
    against a backdrop of over played and under thought fight scenes. This
    movie did not need a slutty looking girl dolled up to the max to keep
    you watching. Well done, Very enjoyable.
