Private Luc Deveraux and his sadistic sergeant, Andrew Scott, got killed in Vietnam. The army uses their bodies for a secret project - reanimating dead soldiers as deadly obedient cyborgs. However, their memories come back too.
Jean-Claude Van Damme,

In New York City, Gibson encounters a woman named Pearl Prophet. Pearl reveals to Gibson that she is a cyborg who is carrying vital-information for a group of scientists in Atlanta who are working on a cure to the plague and Pearl hires Gibson to escort her back to Atlanta. But Pearl is kidnapped by "Pirates" a murderous gang led by Fender Tremolo, who wants the cure for themselves and they decide to take Pearl to Atlanta themselves. Gibson, joined by a young woman named Nady Simmons, goes in pursuit of Fender and his gang, as Gibson sets out to rescue Pearl, stop Fender and his gang from reaching Atlanta and defeat Fender who slaughtered Gibson's family.Written by
A score for the film composed by Anthony Riparetti and James Saad was rejected in favour of a completely new score by Kevin Bassinson. Although Riparetti and Saad are still given credit on some posters and other advertising material for the film. The score itself has since been restored into the director's cut of the movie.

The film was heavily cut to earn an "R" rating rather than an "X". Among the scenes that didn't make it to the film: the opening slit throat, a good deal of blood in the village massacre. Also, in the first warehouse fight, Jean-Claude Van Damme is first fighting one guy and then suddenly he's not fighting anyone anymore (soon before the girl throws a villain down the big pit), the guy he was fighting vanishes, his death scene was likely cut.

Inane dialogue,hilariously bad acting,cheesy music,bad special effects and Van Damme's over the top facial expressions all combine to create one of the most enjoyable unintentionally funny movies I have ever seen!We get our first unintended chuckle literally five seconds into the film with the opening narration;"First there was the collapse of civilisation,anarchy,genocide,starvation,and then when it seemed things couldn't get any worse we got the plague.The living death,then we heard the rumors that the last scientists were working on a cure that would end the plague and restore the world.Restore it?Why?I like the death!I like the misery!I like this world!!!"Absolutely hilarious!
