Movie Info

In a complex sci-fi tale set at some point in the not-too-distant future, an evil industrialist named Francis Turner (John Saxon) has created Paco Querak (Daniel Greene), a cyborg who is 70% robot and 30% human. Paco has been programmed to murder a blind ecologist whose environmental activism does not sit well with Turner's bottom-line motivation. But once he is set up to do his job, the 30% human component in Paco only permits him to injure the ecologist, not kill him. With the local police (and eventually just about everyone else) after him, Paco detours to Arizona to look for his true identity. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for Vendetta dal futuro (Hands of Steel) (Atomic Cyborg) (Arms of Steel) (Return of the Terminator)

½

A crime syndicate and the FBI hunt a renegade cyborg in a future where arm wrestling is a popular sport and highway signs warn when you're entering an acid rain zone. Some unintentional comedy and an action-packed final third can't help this cheap, lame Italian TERMINATOR (with a touch of BLADE RUNNER) ripoff get off the ground.

The action scenes are decent, but the rest of the film is dull. The plot isn't exactly awful, but it's not too original either. John Saxon still plays a good role, but he doesn't have a lot of screen time. It has some good moments, but nothing too memorable.

Its 1997 and it sucks even more than it really did in '97 (so bad, in fact, that the apprently stopped manufacturing cars sometime in the mid 80s!). A cyborg attempts to kill a powerful scientist and then hides at a roadhouse bar in Arizona. He gets involved in the local arm wrestling scene. He is being pursued by his manufacturers who are pissed he didnt complete his job as well as the FBI. The memory of his previous life starts to come back as he tries to figure out why he is now an assassin. There is an arm repair scene similar to that in Terminator. Overall too damn cheesy (but thats too be expected from an 80s Italian action flick) By the outline I gave you'd think there was something more comedic here. There wasn't.
