I really enjoyed Robot Jox, am I the only one who thinks that cover was fairly accurate of the movie? They were... kinda static for the most part. XD

I thought so too. There's nothing especially misleading on the cover.

To me, the artwork looks colorful and the robots look very agile, with a burning city in the background as if they were fighting off the apocalypse, in the movie, the scenes were very bleached, the robots were slow and stiff, and they were basically (IIRC), just fighting over empty land. I see why it was mentioned.

Shark movies posters are always great, but a lot of the movies leave something to be desired.

Something like that is more of a dead giveaway of what you're in for.

True enough, the cover suggests far more spectacle than the movie delivers. Mind you, I tend to forgive this movie's shortcomings, due to the sheer brilliance of having the hero try to drink the alphabet. Just the idea of that made the whole movie for me, back in the day, and it's still what I remember best.

I've got a huge poster of that movie on my wall, never been able to find the film in the U.K & doesn't seem like it'll ever be released on DVD over here, the clips I've seen looked alot of fun though.
