Storyline

In his hidden laboratory deep in Russia, Dr. Karl Zimmer has invented the Mandroid, a humanoid robot which follows the motions of a man in a special control suit. He has offered the invention to the USA, who have sent Smith and Wait from the CIA for inspection. However Zimmer's partner Drago has different plans, wants to sell Mandroid to the military. The night he tries to steal Mandroid, he becomes exposed to the highly toxic Superconn. But he can flee and won't give up on Mandroid, even though he's terribly disfigured.

After Terminator, after Robocop, there was MANDROID!
24 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

Machines aren't inherently evil... they do what they are programmed to do. The real evil lies in man.

So imagine an unstoppable machine, piloted merely by human thought. Now imagine this machine falling into the wrong hands?

Imagine no more, this is Mandroid!

A fairly laughable B-grade thriller/science fiction/horror mix, Mandroid really has its moment. My favourite is when the American CIA agent gets shot in the chest point blank, but it's no big deal to him. He gets up as if nothing happens, gets up and runs after the bad guys.

When he eventually comes to his end, he's plugged by about 20 bullets before he even goes down. All the same, he calmly has time to fire his empty gun, draw a new gun from his jocks, and put the final bullet in his enemy, all in a an extended "who'll get the last laugh" scene with a bad guy.

A laughable plot, ridiculous scientific/technical elements, and nothing but the finest B acting and effects, Mandroid has it all.
