Storyline

It began as an experiment. The ultimate bodyguard - half man, half machine - programmed to do anything. Anything! Global Cybernetics, Inc. is making technological history. They can create a bio-mechanical, plasma-driven, Techno-Sapien - the best security system money can buy. But building one requires a human corpse. And when GCI's bodyguard, Taylor is mysteriously gunned down, he becomes the company's 7.4 million dollar prototype, the "TS-4." At the "TS-4's" unveiling, worldwide demand is immediate. Driven by greed, company chairman, Dr. Connors secretly programs a new model to hunt down other superior humans for Techno-Sapien mass production. His sinister plan is revealed when Security Council head, Barkeley, discovers a missing and dead, well-known athlete in an activation unit. Chairman Connors frantically sends his Techno-Sapien on a killing spree to destroy the entire company. Barkeley and top programmer, Natalie, team up with the "TS-4" to find and terminate the doctor's ... Written by Lamar Card, Director <pcmovies@directorsnet.com>

Pretty much a knockoff of "RoboCop"...and not exactly cerebral.
12 March 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This film is about humans who are transformed into robotic fighting machines. It seems that there is an organization with offices in Russia and the United States that takes dead or nearly dead people and transforms them into these cyborgs--resulting in something STRONGLY reminiscent of "RoboCop". In fact, the idea is so similar, you can't give "Shadow Warriors" any credit for originality.

One day, one of their TS-03 models goes crazy and begins killing everyone in the Russian facility. So, it's up to a newly developed TS-04 to put a stop to him. Oddly, however, not only does the TS-04 begin killing, but it also is able to overpower the newer and better TS-04 when they have a confrontation. The only logical explanation, JUST LIKE IN "RoboCop", is that someone has deliberately tampered with the TS-03. Who and why is unknown.

If you are a person like me who is not a huge fan of all-action films, then this film will be tough going. Compared to the Schwarzenegger and Sylvster Stalone films, this one is MUCH more action-oriented. There is practically no dialog through much of the film and it's kill, kill, kill--as if actual plot and characters weren't especially important. Mindless is the best way to describe the result.

The only reason I watched the film at all was because in an interview Quentin Tarantino said it helped inspire him with his "Kill Bill" movies--though I just don't see it. Tarantino's films, though violent, are very intelligently made and clever. I just don't see any of that in this film. It's all very obvious and low-brow--with nothing of any interest to anyone who wants more than just gunfire and punching.
