Storyline

Chaank Armaments is experimenting with the ultimate fighting machine which is part human - part machine. So far, the Hardman project has been unreliable and has killed a number of innocent people. The genius behind this project is Jack who lives in a world of models, toys and magazines. When he is fired by Cale for killing a few corporate officers, he unleashes the ultimate killing machine called the 'Warbeast' against Cale and those who would help her.

Death by Metal !!!
13 September 1998 | by (London UK) – See all my reviews

Set in the future, this film turns out a top performance from Brad Dourif, who plays a psycho-pathic weapons designer whose latest creation, the DEATH MACHINE is put into action when Brad resents a colleagues promotion, and engages maximum overdrive in the schizo department.

The film maintains a good pace throughout. Although borrowing from the style used in ALIEN, (that of dark corridors and chase sequences.) it moves on from this with the introduction of a comical element provided by three of the worlds most badly prepared eco-type warriors, who pick the wrong time to expose the corporation for what it is. Needless to say, all are ruthlessly hunted to extinction by a first class front-line moral destroyer.

The storyline, the tense combination of will they survive? and the fluid motion of the robot especially, is what makes the film appealing, with a very strong performance from Brad Dourif thrown in for good measure.

This is definately a guys movie, even though the heroine comes no-where near to romping around a commercial cargo vessel in panties and a tight T-shirt!
