Storyline

A group called Mobius is conducting a project to create the perfect soldier. There latest attempt whom they dub J type Omega or J*O*E. The project is overseen by two scientists, one of them is Michael Rourke and a former Marine Colonel A.C. Fleming. Now Joe is faster, stronger, and more durable than any human, but he lacks one thing that Mobius deems necessary - a killer instinct. When Joe repeatedly fails to execute someone, the project is deemed a failure and Joe is to be terminated. But Fleming who thinks of Joe as a son is reluctant to carry it out, and Michael Rourke, who doesn't think Joe is a failure takes him and hide somewhere, where Rourke can teach Joe about the world outside Mobius. They offer their services as soldiers of fortune. When one of their operations reaches Mobius, they still want Joe terminated, so they send Col. Fleming to carry it out. But is he really going to do it? Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Good Villains Wasted
13 September 2002 | by See all my reviews

Plenty of goodies in this show, all sickening, as you'd expect. But there's a glimmer of hope when you see Don Swayze playing aa extortionist thug who has a laugh at our hero's expense with his gang, and big, beefy, sexy Doug Shanklin as Alpha, a clone created specifically to kill J.O.E, the goody-two-shoes clone, decked out in black leather of course.

sadly, neither of these baddies plays a large part in the film. The role of chief villain is instead wasted on Mike Preston, who's hopeless. What a pity.
