Best-selling author Michael Crichton wrote and directed this science fiction thriller that combined the influences of Blade Runner (1982), comic books, and Crichton's ongoing fascination with the dangers of high technology.

This Michael Crichton robotic nightmare is so trite that the story seems lifted from Marvel Comics.
Once it turns from the hardware and the action to people, you can hardly believe your eyes or your ears.
Mr. Crichton has a much better feel for the film's gadgets than for its human players.
Selleck provides a thoughtful performance, coming across as a real, feeling person instead of the expected Rambo-esque tough-guy stereotype.
A nifty futuristic thriller which effectively casts rock-star Gene Simmons as a very bad guy who just oozes evil. A fun flick.
Sci-Fi fun with the always solid Selleck
Fun sci-fi romp, with an absolutely classic turn by Gene Simmons as the villain. Coulda done without the extended make-out scene over the end credits.
It's rubbish, frankly, but rubbish in the nicest, most entertaining way possible.
A weak s-f offering.
