When the film was first released on VHS in Germany, so many violent scenes were cut out that it ran only around 58 minutes, not even reaching feature length. See more »
Towards the end of the film, just after Gibson removes a bandage from his wrist, the camera pans upward, revealing a large gust of smoke and a crew member in the bottom left corner. See more »

The UK video version was heavily cut by 3 minutes and 15 seconds, to remove high amounts of violence and imitable techniques that were considered too extreme for an '18' rating. These included numerous edits to punches, kicks, neck breaks, a hand severing, a pole being rammed into a man's mouth and shots of a blade concealed in a man's boot. In 2000 all previous cuts were waived by the BBFC and in the same year TCF released the uncut film on DVD. See more »
Lord, forgive them, for they know not what they do!
I love CYBORG, there isn't one intellectually stimulating moment during the entire 87 minutes (and 14 seconds actually..well on MY copy) That alone deserves recognition! But hey..Van Dumb WAS learning his craft here..it took another 27 movies before he mastered the art of screen inconsequentiality.
Cyborg is total fun. Where else ya gonna find a robotic damsel in distress, the good guy crucified without any lasting discomfort and the bad guy a vision in Armani leatherwork and wrap around Police sunglasses!
You can comfortably watch this movie......miss as much of it as you like while you cook dinner...and it makes not the slightest difference! I figure it was a class act! In MY book it beats the bejeesus out of THE ENGLISH PATIENT!
