Did You Know?

Trivia

Of all of Angelina Jolie's films, this is rarely discussed. Jolie did discuss it briefly on "Inside the Actor's Studio" in 2005. She said: "I did a fantastic B-movie." When host James Lipton asked if it was a happy experience, she replied: "It was until I saw it." See more »

Goofs

The filmmakers seem to have confused a cyborg with an android. A cyborg is a person who is half machine and half human, while an artificial human like Cash is an android, not a cyborg. See more »

HUGE improvement over the first film
6 September 1999 | by (Auke Bay, Alaska) – See all my reviews

When I heard about a sequel for Van Damme's absolute worst film "Cyborg," I rolled my eyes and thought, "Oh no....Why did they make this? To cash in on the success of a movie that WASN'T a success? There's no way this will be good...."

Well....I was eating my words about fifteen minutes into it.

"Cyborg 2: Glass Shadow" is by no means a masterpiece, nor is it an especially inspiring thriller, but I was surprised how entertaining it was. This might be due to the fact that it completely abandoned the plot of the first film and started from scratch, thus it can be viewed as a completely original motion picture. The plot is pretty standard: late into the 21st century, a company calls PINWHEEL have developed cyborgs that look and act just like real humans, even down to emotions. "If God didn't make you, we did," one of the big business men quotes.

But what if one of the cyborgs begins to recognize independence, as Cash (a beautiful Angelina Jolie) does? That's when Mercy comes in. Mercy is a freelance cyborg who, after the death of his wife, has dedicated his life to helping renegade cyborgs beat the system and flee to another country. The part is played by Jack Palance, who actually does a good job, though he spends most of the time on a computer screen with closeups of his mouth.

At any rate, Cash decides to flee, and she takes along a human to guide her (and he also happens to be in love with her...). His name is Colt, a skilled warrior (Elias Corteas, who bears a close resemblance to Robert DeNiro). Pinwheel sends two people to track them, Danny (a chilling Billy Drago) and Chan (the standard oriental-warrior-cyborg chick). So it's a desparate race for the two to survive in an odd, futuristic city.

It's pretty much a standard plot from there, which is predictable and easy to figure out. But at least it HAS a plot, something the first film can't claim. And this film has good qualities in other areas. The special effects are above average, including the awesome shots of a battery-charged city of 2170! The characters are also well drawn out and defined, with nice chemistry between the two leads and a chilling performance by Drago....That man is evil incarnate. Good score, too.... Does anyone know if the soundtrack is available? Lastly, the action is well-choreographed with some nice settings.

Summing it up, the director knows what he's doing, and he managed to make a so-so plot get lifted by an excellent cast, great, memorable characters, top-of-the-drawer dialogue, okay special effects, and good stunts. Recommended if you're like me: I hated the first film. It's worth taping if it ever comes on TV again...I know I will....

**1/2 out of ****
