It always fills me with a certain sense of joy when the little movie that could starts to really show everyone out there what its made of. Rogue Warrior: Robot Fighter is just that kind of movie. We here at 365HQ have been keeping an eye on this flick since it was sold to Sony towards the back end of 2016 and as we near its release, it is sweeping up on the festival circuit.

A few decades from now… Sienna (Tracey Birdsall), a rebellious robot-fighting arms dealer, lives on a post-apocalyptic Earth. When the cities start to fall under the control of the A.I. Scourge, a hyper-weaponized robot army, Sienna decides to leave the Earth and journey to the centre of the galaxy, seeking a mythical weapon that can neutralize any form of A.I.
Pursued by giant machines, Sienna loses everything she cares about in an effort to save the last vestiges of humanity in an A.I. controlled galaxy.
