The film remains constantly engaging, has strong actors all round and is directed very well.

It's been a while since I've seen this film but I found it pretty entertaining.

Imagine what would happen if someone took ROBOCOP, THE TERMINATOR, ALIENS, and JURASSIC PARK, loaded them into a giant blender, mixed thoroughly, and something extremely entertaining came out!

Extremely enjoyable and surprisingly funny .

Firstly most of the characters I thought were very bland.

When they're at the roof of the building they empty all there weapons upon the killer robot.

It recycles known cliches but remained entertaining for its runtime (111min UK version) and thus I give it a recommendation.

The dialogue, especially the villain's, is quite entertaining; the acting varies from pretty good to bearable and the special effects aren't too shabby at all.

With his constant on screen charisma, he is able to breath life into a character that is both insane and yet fascinating as he plots murder and plays with his toys.

I found her to be uninteresting as a character.

But what I got instead was actually a pretty entertaining and thrilling sci-fi gem.

which is weird, sad, and entertaining at the same time and well, you have to see the film to understand.

The movie is basically a whole bunch of many different genre movies thrown together, only made more entertaining to watch.

While cinematographer John de Borman was competent in the way the camera was handled, the coloring to the picture is very drab.

Maybe the author was trying to obtain something slow-paced like Alien, but instead of being haunting, this movie turned out just boring.

The casting is spot on, Brad Dourif is highly entertaining as the nutcase genius and the rest of the cast are pretty good too.

Dourif, the deft pacing of the film, and the cleverly written script make this predictable farce thoroughly enjoyable.

the name's of the people in it was kind of..stupid..i think people should of sued the maker's of this movie for how lame it was at the end..the first half hour was good but then it just dragged on and on then i was happy..it was over...

He is so over-the-top that I just found him very enjoyable to watch.

+head lurking about trying to kill us" cliche.

Boring .

Death Machine is an efficient, exciting slice of sci-fi action, with more or less everything one looks for in the genre.

Pros: Good creature design, made for fun action with pretty high stakes Can be surprisingly funny Entertaining performances in Dante and Raimi Effective in its themes of the relationship between the corporate and the militaryCons: Slow and confusing start, lasts until the creature is introduced Caleb's conflict with the dead daughter was unneeded Sound design on the creature was immensely cliche, jarring throughout every action sceneBest part: shootout and fistfight in the factory area Worst part: Dante taunting Cale with her dead daughter

Entertaining for what it is.
