The gun used by Gibson Rickenbacker (Jean-Claude Van Damme) are paintball guns, Tipman SMG-60's. This is important in the abandoned factory scene. Rickenbacker runs behind a dumpster and unscrews a 9 oz. CO2 bottle then, inserts another one to simulate "reloading" the weapon. See more »
Gibson puts his knife in his mouth for no apparent reason other than to appear to be a tough guy. He takes it out again immediately afterward. As if that weren't bad enough, he puts it in with the 'sharp' side (though obviously not sharp, or it would have cut his mouth as it was pressing against the corners) facing in toward his tongue.

First there was the collapse of civilization: anarchy, genocide, starvation. Then when it seemed things couldn't get any worse, we got the plague. The Living Death, quickly closing its fist over the entire planet. Then we heard the rumors: that the last scientists were working on a cure that would end the plague and restore the world. Restore it? Why? I like the death! I like the misery! I like this world!

Not one of Van Damme's best films, but a good one to watch. The first of his sci-fi movie roles (the better ones are Universal Soldier and Timecop), this takes a different approach than the martial arts tournaments that Jean-Claude Van Damme played in before. It is true that at times the plot is slow and some of the action scenes are cheesy along with some questionable sound effects, but at this point in Van Damme's movie career I don't think he really gives a crap. Compared to such post-apocalyptic films such as The Matrix trilogy, the Mad Max movies or Escape From New York, it falls slightly short. In short, Cyborg is forgettable but it's enjoyable.
