Movie Info

In an America ravaged by atomic warfare, nomads spend their days scavenging for scrap in a blasted landscape. That's how ex-soldier Moses Baxter (Dylan McDermott) comes into possession of some spare android parts. He buys them as a present for his artist girlfriend, Jill (Stacey Travis), who plans to put them in a sculpture. What they don't know is that the pieces come from a new kind of android that is capable of reassembling itself -- and is programmed to kill.

    I can't sit here and tell you that Hardware is outright "good", but what I can do is recommend it anyway. At least I can if you think your tastes might be even fractionally similar to mine. If you go in for 80's cinema, cyberpunk, PiL, Motorhead, Iggy Pop, Post-Apocalyptia, Psychedelia, sex, drugs and rock & roll, practical effects and Dylan McDermott, or you think you could go in for any of those, then give Hardware a chance. At a runtime of just 94 minutes, you haven't got much to lose.

    A collection of interesting ideas and style that isn't matched by the final execution which falls into a lot of familiar horror tropes. However, I appreciate that the filmmakers actually followed through with their cynical themes.

    Hardware is silly but fun at the same time. It tried too hard to scare and just looked silly, but I do enjoy the concept of a post apocalyptic dystopia filled with paranoia, oppression and robots.Slightly preposterous but the amount of fire power redeemed the film.

    Post-apocalyptic, cyberpunk horror based on a short comic book story called "Shok" about a self-repairing combat cyborg that terrorizes a lady in an apartment block. Pretty good I thought. I liked its interpretation of a post nuclear holocaust world. Pretty cool soundtrack too with cameos from rock legends Iggy Pop and Lemmy from Motorhead. Takes a while for the action to get going but there are a couple of awesomely bloody deaths. As for the cyborg itself I didn't find it too menacing really and it moved quite awkwardly too, the low-budget obviously played its part in the special-effects department. But the "M.A.R.K. 13" does have enough character to make it as memorable as other villainous robots like "ED-209" from the Robocop films. Good film overall, but not great. It's earned its cult status though.
