Put this remote unit in, and I'll give you eternal life.
This isn't life, Alex. You think it is because that's the way you treat life. I wouldn't spend a second in eternity with you.

A scientist working on a top secret experiment is killed in an explosion but the corporation that funds his experiments transforms him into a robot.
A resurrection science fiction film that despite being a B-low budget affair has a grander 80's film quality feel thanks to some gritty, raw and rough round the edges special effects.
Richard Cox and Pam Grier are watchable and some performances are above average. However, they are counter balanced by what should have been better supporting actors. Edith Rey and David Preston's dialogue is sometimes flawed, yet their story fairs better exploring some moral dilemmas.
Although it predates Robocop (1987) I remember the main draw to watch it was because of The Terminator (1984). That said, the Vindicator shares more with Frankenstein and the Wraith (1986).
Jean-Claude Lord's Vindicator was of its day. It has some nice visual moments. The certain charm it held in my mind since 1986 was mostly warm nostalgia - as on revisiting The Vindicator it's not as fast paced as I remembered it.
While fun at the time, in retrospect it's for comparable curiosity only.
