Storyline

In the year 2074 the PinWheel corporation creates a 'almost-human' cyborg Casella Reese, aka. Cash designed specifically to charm/seduce her way into a rival manufacturer's headquarters and then self-detonate. Things go awry, when she starts to have feelings for a human Colton Ricks, aka. Colt 45 who works for PinWheel as a martial arts instructor. He falls for Cash as well, and with the help of Mercy, they escape. PinWheel Corp. sends Danny Bench, a 'Cyborg Tracker' after both Colt and Cash. Violence ensues. Written by Joshua Burgin <joshua@netaxs.com>

Trivia

Reese is a nod to Kyle Reese, Michael Behin's character from 1984's "The Terminator" which was about a cyborg from a post-apocalyptic future. 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 »

Nothing great here
15 August 2002 | by (Escondido, California, USA) – See all my reviews

I read a bunch of the other reviews on this site for this film and at first I was a bit shocked that people liked this film better than the original "Cyborg". But, the more I thought about I guess I might have to agree, the special effects are better, Angelina Jolie is in this one (need I say more?), the fights scenes are about the same, the acting is about the same and the story is equally bad. So, I guess I'd agree that this film is a little better than the original, but they're both pretty bad movies.

I think it's safe to say that Sci-Fi is my favorite genre and I think this movie was just awful. It had some cool things here and there, but overall was not very good. The only reason I can see to sit through this movie is to see the beautiful Angelina Jolie (she looks incredible in this film!)!!! The rest of the cast was ok, but definitely nothing special. I did enjoy seeing Sven-Ole Thorsen in the film though (from "Gladiator" and a good amount of Arnold Schwarzenegger films).

Unless you're a die-hard sci-fi fan and/or an Angelina Jolie fan, I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to see this film. But, if you do end up seeing this movie, I hope you enjoy it. Thanks for reading,

-Chris
