A cop is for ever haunted and hunted over a Cyborg he kills.
2 February 2006 | by yeodawgSee all my reviews

This sexy, slick, sci-fi, shoot them-up, is a bit unpolished, but sure is fun to watch. Kick-boxer Olivier Gruner is so busy bucking them down he hardly has time to show some love round house kick style. The movie takes place in a post apocalyptic future wasteland, where having cybernetics implanted in you is as common as liposuction. O.G.plays an undercover L.A.P.D. cop who is sent to assassinate the leaderof a rebel group of Cyborgs, reported to want to control the remaininghumans. Once he shoots the leader the shooting doesn't stop and he's has a running gun battle with her fellow Cyborg rebels. He's mortally wounded and during recovery he has time to reflect on how much of him is human and how much of him is Cyborg. Being recruited by the rebels that say they're trying to save humans from rogue Cyborg officials. He's also asked to return to L.A.P.D. to fight the good fight against the rebels. Not knowing who's telling the truth he drops out. He goes mercenary and sells his skills on the black market to the highest bidder. This starts his downward spiral. The only way he can uncover which conspiracy is the truth, is to go back undercover for the L.A.P.D. Sexy: It starts off sexy with the opening scene being the hero and rebel leader amorously making out and disrobing each other, in a hotel hallway both planning on killing each other. Slick: Half this movie is Hooligans in 500 dollar Italian suits, loading and cocking tricked out machine guns. Shoot them up: Cyborg with belt fed 50 Caliber machine guns and mini-guns attached to their bodies that fire until lock back. This movie had more was made when Desert Eagles and H+K MP-5's were cheap. The scene in "Underworld" where Kate BECKINSDALE shoots through the floor to escape the Lykens was knocked off (sampled, stolen) from this movie. Unpolished: this movie was obviously written for a bigger budget. Pedestrian special effects don't do it justice. But this movie doesn't apologize for nothing. The movie poster says it all, he hero and a hot Cyborg chick holding tricked out MP-5's, enough said.
