STARRING: Jean-Claude Van Damme,
Deborah Richter, Vincent Klyn, Alex Daniels, Dayle Haddon, Blaise
Loong, Rolf Muller
1989, 86 Minutes , Directed by: Albert Pyun
Description:Jean-Claude Van Damme, a.k.a. "the Muscles from
Brussels" plays plays the protective escort for a half-human, half-cyborg
woman whose programming contains a possible cure for a plague that's
threatening to wipe out the entire population of Earth. But the woman is
kidnapped by Van Damme's evil nemesis (is there any other kind?) while
they are en route to her Atlanta headquarters. That leads Van Damme right
into a lion's den of sadomasochistic torture and torment.
This boring and dreary martial arts
affair about good and evil Cyborgs battling it out in a
Mad Max-like post-apocalyptic landscape
is something that Jean Claude Van Damme would probably rather have consigned
to the dust heap out of pure embarrassment. Instead it's been
relegated to the great video shelf dust heap. Largely plotless and cheaply made.
Also, for some reason
characters in the movie are named after electric guitars, for example Van
Damme's character is named "Gibson Rickenbacker" . . .
