Movie Info

Set in a grim post-WW III America, this sci-fi fantasy tells the story of a woman attempting to sell black-market computer chips that allow patrons to experience the nearly forgotten pleasures of sex and drugs. She is hanging out with the gang she works for in a local nightclub when the police raid the joint. She manages to escape and decides to double cross her gang and sell the chips for herself. But first she must escape both the police and the gangsters and make it to the New York underground. She is helped out when she runs into Plughead, an android covered with electrical outlets. He uses these to tap in to the fantasies of other people. The soundtrack by Deborah Holland provides a highlight.

All Critics (3)

Nothing about the thriller is convincing, but is well-made and quite amusing.

Wildly weird futuristic thriller with some bizarre but inventive notions.

Audience Reviews for Circuitry Man

(***): [img][/img] A fun, enjoyable low-budget sci-fi flick.


So...the pretty actress is "the tough guy", Druggie, Plug Head is the "big bad", and the Pleasure Android is the actual "Circuitry Man" of the title? This was the beginning of MISLEADING TRAILERS for me. Lame even by made-for-television standards. Wasteland movies that feature too many wasted land shots = BORING. THANK GOD for stuff like TERMINATOR: Salvation!

This is a pretty entertaining movie.If your a hardcore Si-Fi fan it's worth a peek. Some other good Si-Fi titles are Cherry 2000,Hardware,Trancers and Solarbabies.
