Overall, not a bad film but not that good either....
24 January 1999 | by pdkSee all my reviews

Overall, not a bad film but not that good either. Shades of Robocop here, a bit of Borg technology there, but I thought it failed to gel into an enjoyable whole. Richard Grieco was nasty, but not nasty enough. The mayor was a joke. The acting on the whole was below par. The heroine wiped out the bad guys too easily (doesn't she ever reload?). She should have at least been stabbed or shot a few times to show her super quick healing powers in action. No chance of that though with her armour. I guess given a low budget they didn't do too badly, but the outcome was merely average. Watch out for the grisly ending!
