Convoluted Trash

1/10

Adaman is an U.S. Army made robotic soldier with the mind and memories of a serial sex offender lose in a Latin American country. As the wife of the local dictator tries to escape the country with her ex-husband's help, Adaman kills the ex-husband. His (the ex-husband's) mind is placed in the body of Adam, Adaman's robot twin and sent out by the scientists who created them both to destroy their prototype error. The U.S. and local armies strike up a deal to capture them both.

Lots of back story, that serves no purpose. Lots of deal making and back-stabbing, confused by the fact that the lead characters are indistinguishable from each other. Action and sex, poorly shot around to meet broadcast television standards. These things make the story hard to follow.

Harsh gel filter colored scenes, intermixed with black and white or soft focused sepiatone brown shots makes it painful to watch.

This movie is so bad, it's not even laughable.

Move over Plan 9 from Outer Space!

What an absolute waste of time. Films this bad can only be done on purpose. I can understand a film crew being so close to a project that they can't see if it's a turkey but Millennium Man was so bad it must of been obvious even in pre-production. The wobbly camera, fast editing and silly colour filters make watching this even more of a challenge. Do not plan to see this film, do ANYTHING else instead.

Painful and depressing

1/10

Another insult AND injury from Glen Larson.

In the 1950's the Evil Monster Robots would clutch the blonde girl in their "arms" as depicted on the movie posters. Now they have taken to raping her outright with all the grunts and details instead of cut-aways.

Larson's previous wretched runs of science fiction were harmless at best, just kid stuff--talking cars, a good guy cyborg, goofy Cylons, Boxey and (oh gawd!)Twiki. All fit for lunch boxes, comic books, toy lines and other ephemera. This flick must be from his dark side; it makes Battlestar Galactica look good.

The only bright spot is the wonderful Shannon Kenny (Invisible Man, 2000) who still shines despite the material she is handed.

Why?

1/10

There were made-for-TV movies that ended up being pretty decent TV shows, with adequate runs for those series. Kung Fu: The Legend Continues. The Invisible Man.

I could only assume what kind of series these guys planned to make out of this. What kind of weekly bad guy they would make. But even this TV movie is riddled with problems. Story aside, one would be surprised the show was even made.

While the style the photographers used was an interesting experiment, it had been viewed -- as evidenced by the other comments here -- as sloppy and inconsistent. The choice of digital video in 1999 is a bold choice, but the weak editing destroys any type of 'vision' this movie may have had.

The big glaring mistake the producers made was the decision to use the same actor for both the hero and villain. Granted, the two characters share only a short amount of time on screen, but it's still impossible to distinguish between the two. They look identical, act too similarly. Maybe slight differences, but chances are only an acting coach can spot them. And, okay, granted their eye colours are different. But is that enough to distinguish the two, when usually the characters aren't made up in their Terminator 2 head styles?
