Quotes

[first lines]
Catalina Jones: [in sultry TV commercial] I love a man who knows what he wants. But if what he wants is Wild Times whiskey, well, then I love him even more. With its full body and breathtaking smoothness, Wild Times is the whiskey that goes down easy. That smooth, great taste, it could almost make a girl jealous.

User Reviews

 
Juvenile attempt at Cyberpunk
26 August 2017 | by bobconstansSee all my reviews

Hardwired is like a (bad) Max Headroom fanfic RoboCop ripoff - including trying to make it look like it was made back then, except the production values don't look as good. It might have worked as a parody sketch if they'd kept it under 10 minutes. The special effects are particularly unbelievable. Throughout I kept feeling it was more like a Made-For-TV Movie, and with the ending more appropriate to a TV Pilot, it makes me wonder. It's not even so-bad-it's-funny, merely pathetic, so avoid this even for Schlock B-Movie nights.

I'm fairly generous with my Ratings, so 3 might be high.
