I'm searching for a Sci-Fi movie I saw in my childhood (late 80s - early 90s). The movie was about a crew on a spaceship with two similar looking androids or robots; one evil trying to kill the crew and one good fighting to save the crew.

The Robots had a similar head shape like the Human Helmets from Battlestar Galactica and some kind of green color in their face.

There was this special scene i can remember where they tried to reach a save room but one human didn't made it throu the closing door and his face was slammed against the glass of the door by the robot while the other human couldn't help

    Did they look human, or kind of like trashcans with faces (eg, Black Hole) May 15, 2017 at 20:35

Could this be the Doctor Who serial "The Robots of Death"? This is what the robots looked like:

enter image description here

Green faces, check.

Evil robots trying to kill the crew, check.

Good robots trying to save the crew, check.

They vaguely look like the helmets from Battlestar Galactica, half a check.

  • Very similar but still not the movie i'm searching for :/

Could it be The Black Hole (1979)?

USS Palomino encounters a long-lost and apparently abandoned ship stuck mysteriously surviving near a black hole. On board they find Dr. Hans Reinhardt and his menacing-looking robot Maximilian (who looks a bit like an original Cylon), along with other robots and masked servants.Menacing red robot

The Palomino crew have a robot companion which finds a battered-looking earlier model of itself and which later helps them fight Reinhardt's minions.Palomino crew and robot

More minion bots. More minion bots

Missing the green about the face, though...

  • yeah.. the green faces are missing.. those movies look more like 60s and 70s to me. the movie im searching for has this 80s style

Could it be Starship (1984)? (It was also called "Lorca and the Outlaws" and "2084".)

Here is the TMDb synopsis:

Jowitt, a mercenary without recluse institutes a totalitarian regime in a small mining city of an arid planet, Ordessa, helped in that by androids incapable of any emotion. The young Lorca and his android professor, Kid, are both in this tended situation. To find the liberty, they must at any costs seize a spaceship, the "Red Star", but they quickly have to face an android killer...

Here is an image of one of the androids:

Android from "Starship"/"Lorca and the Outlaws"/"2084" (1984)

I think that jibes with the description.

The entire film appears to be on YouTube:

I think the scene described in the question is at around 1:20:00 on that YouTube video.

  • You are awesome!!! That's the movie.. thanks for your help mate :D
