Rain falls on post apocalypse...
14 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Olivier Gruner stars as Alex Rain, a cyborg who has lost all his faith in humanity after barely walking away with his life after a gun fight with terrorists, However his former employers want him back and they want him to get rid of a renegade agent and to insure that he does this deed, they implant a bomb in his heart, not impressed by his former employer's antics Rain goes AWOL and joins the rebels. There are many similarities between this and Pyun's other movie Cyborg. Although where as I remember everyone in Cyborg laughing at the antics on screen, I remember everyone walking out of this one saying how good it was. I however was no fan. I thought the narrative was a bit hard to follow and while the action sequences were well staged, I often found myself distracted by the circumstances surrounding them. (Same thing with Cyborg.) However Nemesis is better than Cyborg, there is more depth in the script however there isn't enough exploring of the depth that could have made this thing great. Indeed there are some very good moments to be found here but had Pyun explored these (Mainly the relationship between Gruner and the renegade agent Jared(Played well by Marjorie Monaghan) as well as Gruner's dilemma to being a cyborg) Nemesis might have really been something. Nemesis has it's fans and I can see why, I just was often bored with the corporate clichés and confused narrative.

Ed note:However it's still way better than any of the sequels, so if you must watch one from this prolific series, see only this one.
