This movie is a showcase of poor directing, writing and acting.
In several sequences in the movie the director seems to forget whether it was day or night when he started shooting the scene. In addition the main character John Larkin (Timothy Hutton) wears a white tank top, which he somehow manages to keep spotless during the entire movie.
The plot seems like a pitiable version of RoboCop, with a bit of sex put in it. The sex makes this film even worse as it seems it has been in for no particular reason non other that the pleasure of the viewer. There are simply too many unexplained things in this film and combined with very poor acting this movie probably wins the first prize for tackiness and clichés.
