Great Action Movie!
3 March 2002 | by (Houston, TX) – See all my reviews

This movie was pure brilliance.

First, the most noticeable thing about this movie is how the same background music repeats throughout the movie. Now, usually this would destroy a movie, but surprisingly makes this move all the better. Blake Leyh does a great job on the music.

Onto the plot, the plot was pretty good. There could have been some improvements as far as the speaking parts, but the fight scenes and the action was all too great. There was a lot of violence and blood; stuff that makes an action movie good. There were several cool weapons used as well as hi-tech features and futuristic looking structures.

Basically, this movie is Terminator 2 with some modifications. First replace the young boy in terminator 2 with a beautiful and sexy woman, Mary. 2nd replace the bad cyborg in Terminator 2 with an even more vicious looking and stronger bad guy, and finally replace Arnold Schwarzenegger with Joe Lara, and with a few plot alterations you have American Cyborg: Steel Warrior.

The action in this movie is non-stop, from the exploding of the underground lab, to the fight scenes with the cyborgs, to the cannibals, to the lesbians.

This movie is a must see for all action movie fans!
