Put this remote unit in, and I'll give you eternal life.

This movie is an evolutionary piece - from Terminator to Robocop .
Stan Winston did the SPFX !
In this film, a scientist working in a sinister robotics company with a really creepy boss(they always are) gets is killed by them in a horrible lab explosion and has his brain placed inside an indestructible robot body .
The rest of this movie goes on with a romance angle as this Cyborg/Man regains consciousness and wreaks havoc while trying to communicate with his wife, played by the gorgeous(back then in 1986) Terri Austin . (He tries to reconnect with his old life, like in that scene in RoboCop)
The rest of this movie is about breaking things, while trying to defeat the evil his evil boss from recapturing him for some ill-defined 'turn humans into cyborgs' project .
This film pays homage to previous movies like THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL - - as the cyborg breaks free like the giant robot Gort does .
Except for the 'Frankenstein Suite' designed by Stan Winston, this movie's production values are typically Canadian: SLEAZY ! !
Pam Grier stars in this film as an hired killer-commando, a cheap role of the likes she was doing so much of during the 80's .
As for a Sci-Fi Horror B movie, out of 4 Stars, this film ranks about a <3
