Quotes

Joe Simpson: [Video footage plays of a mechanical arm bending a metal bar] It operates by servo motors of significant yet undetermined strength.
Hunter: What do you mean, undetermined strength?
Joe Simpson: Well, we're not quite sure. We could have used a thicker bar, but we would have had to build a stronger bench in order to anchor the mechanical arm.
Hunter: Well, congratulations. It looks like you guys have created one hell of a killing machine and you made him virtually indestructible. A nice touch.

Kind of a Terminator rip-off.
2 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

I would also say it was a "Robocop" rip-off too, but it came out before it and for all I know "Robocop" stole from this movie, but I doubt it. A mediocre version of "The Terminator" that has a scientist involved in an accident and his brain and a few other parts are placed in this super robot body meant for space flight. When I think about that it also sounds a bit like "Darkman" doesn't it? The whole scientist in an accident thing. Anyway, this robot has his brain, but if he is touched or something the suit goes off and kills. The scientist has no control over it when it goes through these swings. If this isn't bad enough he is being chased by a really stupid bounty hunter woman. She hates men and would never let her self be killed by one. In fact, she would rather turn the gun on herself rather than be killed by the scientist in the suit. Of course, simply running away from the slow moving scientist never occurs to her, I guess she figured it would be easier to pull a trigger. There is an ending with our hero in quite a fight and then the very ending is kind of cruel. For some reason he is put on display or something.
