Storyline

A retired Agent from an Intelligence Agency is contacted by the Agency in order to stop an ultra-secret robot that is killing some government officials. That will be not an easy task, because the robot looks human and it was specifically built to be an efficient killer, not to mention that it is almost invulnerable.

YAWN! A Real Bore
14 November 2016 | by Rainey-DawnSee all my reviews

A lame TV movie version of Terminator - sorta. We have a robot that looks human that goes around killing people he's programmed to kill. And it's a very boring film. Mainly a bunch of talk with some action scenes thrown in for some so called excitement.

I have no clue as to the type of film they used to film this movie with but it looks dark and dirty, just dingy looking. A drab film quality to go with a drab story - I guess it works well together.

This is not a film that Terminator fans should seek out - it's not nearly as exciting nor is it a quality film like Terminator. Instead it's just a lame, boring made for TV movie. If you miss this one, you aren't missing anything at all but some ugly 1980s hairstyles and clothing.

1/10
