Jack is smitten by the new kitten and when she spurns his advances and fires him. He sets loose the ulitmate Vegimatic in the building. His newest robotic weapon which he calls Warbeast. Now, Hayden and a group of execs and eccho terrorist are out to survive.

Jack will stop Warbeast, he has the only remote. But Hayden has to agree to return his job and go out with him.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Here's the deal. I am a big fan of Brad Dourif, have been since CHILD'S PLAY. Three years ago or so I met Brad Dourif at a fast food restuarant close to where I live. He's a great guy. But that doesn't influence me in my reviews one bit. I like this movie, I think Brad Dourif is great at being the insane villian type. Now there are some character issues, I mean these peace mongers don't understand without weapons certain Governments of this world would walk all over you and steal you basic human rights. Also, some of the dialog in the movie is a tad on the corny side. But I love WARBEAST. That is one cool robot monster and I for a party of one would have loved to see a DEATH MACHINE 2: WRATH OF THE WARBEAST. But it's not to be. Anyway, I give DEATH MACHINE...8 STARS!

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd. There are character issues in this. There is this Cop that refuses to listen to a word they say. Doesn't watch the news and don't know the new CEO when he sees her, I geuss. I won't say what is going to happen. But the moral is. Move, when someone says move. I too give DEATH MACHINE...8 STARS

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ CAST (The cast does a great job with the material they were given.)
+ WARBEAST (Warbeast is a cool walking vegimatic.)
+ BRAD DOURIF (Brad Dourif is one of history's greatest horror actors with Vincent Price, Bela Lagosi and Boris Karloff.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES)

- CHARACTERS (There are minor character issues.)
- DIALOG (The dialog got corny at places.)

AND FINALLY...

- NOT FOR EVERYONE (If you aren't big on Horror, then this isn't for you.)
