I remember this one well...less then precious memory
13 July 2000 | by (Hawaii) – See all my reviews

There is probably a reason I'm the only one who remembers this film. I was 12 when they aired it on TV and it preceded Robocop by 11 years. This was one terrible film. The only interesting scene was when the robot cop is being tested: they have an old lady rob a store, and she tosses the gun to a street kid. The robot correctly arrests the old lady.

The main reason this movie sucks so much is the following bit of dialogue: Ernest Borgnine says, "This is like something out of 1984", the scientist says, "1984 is only 8 years away and our technology is vital...." Yes, you heard that right! The scientist was trying to live up to the ideal of "1984". Considering also there were no robots in the great novel of the worse possible future society, it's more than obvious the writer of this script did not have a CLUE as to what the book was about.
