Prototype X29A - 1992

Or it might just be called Prototype.  But the front distinctly says X29A.

Another Terminator rip off, here we goooooooooooooo.  I just couldn't quite get into this movie.  And I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one here.  Prototype X29A is not remembered, it's not cult, it's not really anything besides a low rent robot movie.  Which you know, is fine, it's just uh, not that exciting.

In this one, there's this corporation that builds robots that are attacking a resistance movement, there's Hawkins who is a disabled guy who just wants to walk again, and there's sexy woman Chandra, who I think was part of the resistance and who wants to have sex constantly.  Lots of topless girl in this movie.  Hawkins enters the corporation trying to score himself an obligation-free robot body.  Of course the robot body wants to do it's own thing and starts killing people.  Hawkins is turned against his girl Chandra, and it's the robot body with his mind versus her.

"Were the actors in this in anything else", I can practically hear you beg to know?  Oh come on dude!  You can't actually want to know.  Of course not!  Most of them have under 5 other movie titles on their IMDb pages.  The director is apparently someone who's been around, but...you know.  The actors in this are pretty damn bad, and this movie does have a significant degree of hurt.

This is another one where it's kinda like, what else do I say here?  The robot for one does look great.  This is one where you see the robot a lot of the film, and it's good cause the costume looks nice.  It looks like the kind of thing you'd see for sale in a magazine as a kid, and it would be like $300.  Even if you did somehow get that costume, it wouldn't look half as good as the picture did and you'd be hella pissed off.
