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. Written by

The film was banned in several countries, including Iraq, China, Malaysia and Australia among others. The Board of Film Censors accuse the film of excessive violence (perhaps the most famous scene from the film, the scene of the elevator, where they were censored 12 seconds), and screening for drug habits (in one of the scenes of the film, the cast of actors smoked several giants cannabis cigarettes). But undoubtedly the most censored of the film was the character played by Brad Dourif, Jack Dante. The character was accused of violent acute psychosis, profanity, lewd behavior, incitement to murder and incitement to rape. Some countries also censored a scene in which dead babies showed the arms of the company, and this scene reported on numerous occasions. See more »

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!
