Most boring of the three
In no way connected to the first two, this is about a company that wants to... (are you sitting down?) turn physical education college students into cyborgs(and no, at no point do two of them battle one another, nor are any of them cops... in fact, the entirely "trilogy" barely lives up to its title at all, and that was briefly in the first one, the most fun of these; ah, however, they *can* survive head-on vehicle collisions, and radiation(oh, here's the best part: Do you know how they did that? By converting cockroach blood into human blood... I swear, I am not making this crap up)... not that those, especially the latter, ever comes into play in this). A female reporter finds out... mainly because she's invited back after seeing something she shouldn't(by the boss who later sends his half a dozen or so half-metal warriors to kill people he just... didn't need to hire, who knew nothing), and, well, he booked the "having the subject gunning down targets that shatter if you throw a stick in their general direction" test *right* after the one he could show her without her realizing anything too dangerous. He also leaves her alone within reach of an important piece of equipment, and she runs off with it. You know, I've heard it's bad to wake someone up who's sleepwalking, but when your scriptwriter is clearly not quite awake as he's typing things out, you may want to break that rule. So two feds who retrieve people who don't pay in time... let me try that again... 2 repo men with guns(and the personalities of paper bags... one is blond, the other is darkhaired, avenges insults to his mother, is apparently a perv and eats a lot) are sent to get her, and through a series of odd misunderstandings, they help her instead. The characters are irritating and unlikable. Acting is poor. Dialog is meh. The exposition is painfully obviously delivered. We do get shootouts(including a rip-off of the police station scene in The Terminator), explosions and physical fights(albeit no sex or nudity! What gives?). Near the end, a couple of the guns are lame. The FX are fine, though it's mainly because this really doesn't go for that much... there's barely any metal-skin in this, in spite of the cover. Some of the music in this is awful, it sounds like a midi track for an old video-game. There is a bit of violence, and a little blood in this. I recommend this to the most forgiving fans of B-movies. 1/10
