1986) Ally Sheedy, Steve Guttenberg, Fisher Stevens, Austin Peddleton, G. w. Bailey. 99 mins. From the director who brought you Blue Thunder and War Games, comesthis standard formula romp, featuring acronymous, but lovable, electronics, nasty, militaristic bad-guys, a gutsy, animal-loving heroine and plenty of car chases. The ultra-advanced military robot, S.A.I.N.T. No 5,18 struck by lightning and miraculoust comes to life, an occurence signified by the fact that he begins to find butterflies and furry animals cute. Escaping from the electronics firm which spawned him, No 5 soon befriends mobile-cafe owner Ally Sheedy and, discovering the concept of death, decides that he
doesn’t want to be disassembled.
The bull-headed security chief wants to destroy him, the President of Nova electronics want to stop him before he causes havoc and a bad press, the scientist who built him wants to analyse the ‘malfuntion', Ms Sheedy wants to save him. The chase is on, and fairly predictable it proves too. The best moments derive from No 5‘s love of old movies and crass commercials, acquired on an all-nightTV binge, which results in an entertaining series of robotic impersonations which range from John Travolta's dancing, to a Three Stooges slapstick routine. An enjoyable enough piece of lightweight nonsense and the radio-controlled star does possess a certain charm. (Richard Reece)
