They intend to replace humans with cyborgs.
All humans, Alex. They have to be stopped, before they start a war between cyborgs and humankind.
While you're a cyborg... Why don't you side with them?
They are wrong.
And that's it?
Isn't that enough?

The Japanese VHS features an alternate ending, containing an extended scene with Germaine, and a surprise appearance by Farnsworth at the very end, but also misses the entire stop-motion fight sequence on the plane, even though the sequence with an (inexplicably) badly injured Alex in Einstein's lab is intact.

I had never heard of this movie when I first saw it in the store, but the cover looked cool, and the story sounded neat (well, actually I was more interested in the word "Cyborg" on the cover) so I rented it. I really liked it! Lots of action and CYBORGS!! The plot is a bit confusing, and you never really get a hang of it since they never fully explain it in the movie, but after several viewings I think the plot goes something like this:
LAPD Cop Alex Rain is half-human, half-cyborg (don't expect a mean killing machine àlà RoboCop, though) and he has to stop the Cyborgs before they complete their mission to kill all humans one by one and replace them with Cyborg duplicates. Well, Alex Rain goes to some "low tech, s**t hole called Shang Loo" (quote from the movie) and does a bit of killing and shooting. Well actually he does loads of killing and shooting.
Lots of action, and that's always good. The acting is poor, but Oliver Gruner does a good job as our man, Alex Rain! Poor effects, and a better soundtrack wouldn't hurt. But overall its a pretty good movie! 7 out of 10.
