Battle Drone (2018)

This is the cheesy mess you get when a stuntman wants to become a writer and director. Stay a stuntman.

Mitch Gould’s attempt to write and direct this film failed miserably. The only redeeming quality and the reason for a 3 and not a 1/10 is the concept of the story, and the fairly decent costumes of the ‘drones’.

The dialogue was so cheesy, it made Louis Mandylor’s character unbearable, as was his acting, and for that matter the rest of the cast. The blame for the acting failure goes primarily to the director for failing to direct his cast properly.

The slow-mo action scenes were also unbearable. This entire dragged out film was basically me watching a 5 year old play a video game and pause to change the viewing angles in slow motion. Right from the starting credits, I was hoping I wouldn’t see any more of this cheesy directing, yet the film was full of it. Then you have the endless dragged-out gun fights of constant back and forth shooting where both sides just keep missing. Did a 5th grader write the screenplay? And what’s with the western themed score?

Any comparison to Predator, the A-Team or the Expendables is an insult to either franchise.

I’m guessing either someones rich dad funded this mess or someone won a lottery – and wanted to become a filmmaker.

This film hurt to watch. Don’t waste your time with it. A very generous 3/10 from me.
