This film was conceived to use the costumes and sets built for a Masters of the Universe (1987) sequel and a live action 'Spider-Man' film. Albert Pyun planned to shoot both projects simultaneously. Cannon Films had to cancel deals with Mattel and Marvel because of their financial troubles, and they needed to recoup the money spent on both projects. Pyun created the film's script, under the pseudonym of Kitty Chalmers, using two previous scripts, "Johnny Guitar" and "Alex Rain". Some network television channels still give the film's title as 'Masters of the Universe 2: Cyborg,' leading people to think it's a sequel. See more »

In 2011 Albert Pyun released the alternate cut of 'Cyborg' on DVD through his website. It is edited by Pyun and contains some previously unseen scenes that were cut from the film to earn a "R" rating rather than an "X". See more »
Yes, of course the movie has action. But that is all it has. Basically, you get to see Van Damme run from a big group of bad guys and beat the crap out of them every time he stops. No kidding, this is just "run to this location, fight, run to new location, fight some more.." ad infinitum. Good action movies know you need breaks and pacing, but this one had none. There was nothing too impressive to me about the fight scenes, either. You just never get that "high stakes" feeling that make action movies thrilling.
