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" . . .
