Dr. Kaff (or Dr. Cops; 카프 박사 in Korean), an evil scientist bent on world domination, creates an army of giant robots to kidnap world-class athletes and conquer the world. To fight off this attack, Dr. Kim creates Robot Taekwon V. Kim Hoon, the taekwon-do champion eldest son of Dr Kim, pilots Robot Taekwon V either mechanically or through his physical power by merging his taekwon-do movements with the robot. Comic relief is provided by Kim Hoon's younger buddy, elementary school student Kim Cheol.

Disclaimer: This is a review of what I could find of the western adaptation of "Robot Teakwon V", Voltar the Invincible. which seems to be edited down and possibly incomplete, seeing as is under and hour and ends almost mid-sentence, though it does tell a complete story. There might be a spoiler though spoiler is an ambiguous term so its not my fault, nothing is.

In the world of animation, there's the concept of the "Terribad" anime. That is, an anime show or series that is *so* bad, that it's actually entertaining to watch. The mere act of making fun of it while watching it provides enjoyment. (It's the same principle that drives shows like MST3K)

First off, let's not forget that this movie is culturally very important, as one of the earliest popular Korean animated movies that went on to become a widely loved hit within the country with many sequels. We can recognize and honor that history, while at the same read more
