Storyline

A retired agent from an Intelligence Agency is contacted by the Agency in order to stop an ultra-secret robot who is killing some government officials. That will be not an easy task, because the robot looks human and it was specifically builded to be an efficient killer, not to mention that it is almost invulnerable.

Fairly unremarkable TV movie influenced by The Terminator
19 May 2014 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland, UK) – See all my reviews

An ex-CIA operative is convinced by his old boss to return to action one last time to help track down a rogue agent who is going around killing people connected with the Agency. The only trouble is that the said agent is seemingly a lethally designed cyborg.

This is a mid-80's TV movie, so it's probably fair to say that expectations should be lowered accordingly. Seeing as it was released in 1986, it's only fair to surmise that it derives much of its influence from the recent smash hit film The Terminator. Obviously, it's a very poor man's Terminator though. But its combination of sci-fi with paranoid political intrigue was not such a bad concoction to be fair. It's delivered with just enough effort to ensure it's watchable. But it's best to accept in advance that the thrills on offer in this one are of the bargain basement variety.
