Trivia

Gabriel (Kris Kristofferson) trains Nea (Kathy Long) to fight Job (Lance Henriksen) and his army of cyborgs that are bent on harvesting the blood of 10,000. This foreshadowed Kris Kristofferson's role in the "Blade" trilogy, which he played Abraham Whistler, mentor of vampire hunter Blade (Wesley Snipes). See more »

Goofs

When Simon somersaults down the hill after Gabriel during their fight scene the trampoline used by the stunt double is clearly visible. See more »

Alternate Versions

When the film aired on premium cable channels, there is an added scene between David and Matthew. After the fight at the river, they make it back to camp and David tells Matthew how lucky he was that Nea missed his kill zone. Then, Matthew rubs the top of his head and says that he needs an aspirin. See more »

Knights: Another poor Cyborg tale
8 November 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Knights is the third movie in the bafflingly constructed Cyborg franchise which started with the Jean Claude Van Damme movie Cyborg (1989).

It tells the story of a girl who is trained to fight cyborgs who are intent on slaughtering countless humans in order to create an unstoppable army.

The girl in question is played by Kathy Long, for those unfamiliar she's more well known as a professional kick boxer and a stuntwoman than an actress. I guess you could say she was the 1990's Zoe Bell.

Full of high octane action (Mostly melee) this is another weak addition to the franchise which is insanely disjointed and I simply don't get it.

Starring industry veterans Lance Henriksen and Kris Kristofferson it's mediocre stuff and demonstrates that even the greats have blotches on their records. Henriksen inparticular is really quite awful here.

3 movies in, not impressed.

The Good:

Scott Paulin

Some okay choreography

The Bad:

Simply really generic stuff

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

Lance Henriksen has done some absolute stinkers
