80's or early 90's Asian Film (Live Action) with possible Robot or Machine thing

I remember very little from this. I rented it from Blockbuster back in the day. It was most likely Japanese or Korean and may have been black and white or it just very dull colored and may have possibly been a silent film with just a score. The only visual that I remember is a large robot/machine thing coming down a hallway in a warzone type environment (kinda like the future scenes in Terminator but way less blue in color lol). Post-Apocalyptic maybe, not sure. I believe I remember the main character being a kid or kids. The robot/machine thing had guns as well if I remember correctly.

Thank you in advance for any help.

Unfortunately, it is not Burst City. I am familiar with that film. Thank you anyways though.

I wanted to answer with this originally, but the kid description stopped me. The people in this movie aren't really 'kids', but you may be remembering them as younger. The movie is Japanese and in color, but you said it may have been muted or toned-down color, which this one has. It also has a robot with guns, scenes of the robot coming down hallways, and definitely a "Terminator" vibe and a post-apocalyptic  look to it. Below is the IMDb page, which includes a trailer.

Here is a video trailer from YouTube which has more scenes of the robot.
Unfortunately it is not Gunhed. Although, I did come across Gunhead years ago while searching for this exact film and it's a pretty decent movie haha.
