When I was a kid I had this film on VHS and I use to watch it again and again, until I lost it. I remember it was really scary movie to me at that time, I even had a few nightmares about the Synths chasing me, so this movie means much to me. Since this movie isn't well known, it was hard to get another copy, so I kinda gave up hope to see it again. But now after many years I decided to watch it again and I bought it on internet, hoping that this movie will be still very enjoyable to me as it was when I was a kid. And I must say that I enjoyed every minute of it. I'm a big post-apocalyptic movies fan and I have seen a lot of them, but this is still one of my favorite. It's not one of those toxic wasteland post-apocalyptic movies it's more similar with movies like Terminator or Cyborg 2, but it has some originality in it, like cyborgs who have conquer the world, but have left some people alive to satisfy their human desires. I have already mentioned that this movie use to be scary to me, so I guess I have to explain why. What use to scare me, was how powerful and merciless those cyborgs were and how well it was portrayed. Even a main good guy, was afraid of them. There were few scary scenes where people are fighting cyborgs and those people looked so helpless against them and those cyborgs seemed to enjoy killing. And also those Russia's streets where it was all filmed, reminded me of a neighborhood where I grow up, that made this film look even more realistic to me. Action scenes are also worth mentioning. Though this film is made on a low budged, I think that action sequences looked great. OK, maybe sometimes it was to slow, but I've seen many action movies of that time who were made on a bigger budged but had a much worse action sequences. In this movie, there was some shootouts which looked pretty good, especially in those scenes where people who get shot fly few meters back and then crush to some table, that looked pretty impressive. Darby Hinton showed some great kicks (he was studying Jet Kun Do, Bruce Lee's fighting technique). What's about acting? Well I've read some other comments on the internet which said that acting in this film was horrible. I disagree with that. It wasn't nothing special, but it was good enough. Personally, I think that Darby Hinton and Leonard Donato where really great. Other actors were good too. I liked the soundtrack, it gave this film a creepy atmosphere. It's also well directed, because like I said, there is always that creepy atmosphere in this movie and that is probably what I liked the most in this film. So, if you like post-apocalyptic films, you must see this one, it's a really dark vision of future.
