Mr. Van Damme's Gibson is so opaque that he makes Mel Gibson's Mad Max seem weepy by comparison.
Few genres amuse me more than post-apocalyptic fantasies about supermen fighting for survival. Cyborg is one of the funniest examples of this category, which crosses Escape from New York with The Road Warrior but cheats on the budget.
It's just another martial arts film, all dressed up with no place to go.
where Sergio Leone focused in on squinted eyes and twitchy trigger fingers, Pyun highlights pectorals shivering under rain machines. I'm not complaining.
Martial arts fans will find plenty of action to hold their interest here, but those in search of plot and character are advised to look elsewhere.
One of Van Damme's earlier, finer moments
Laughably bad futuristic Van Damme actioner.
Largely plotless and cheaply made.
In the end it's a little unfair to assess Van Damme in this picture, since Robert De Niro would have trouble seeming credible in these surroundings.
Another Terminator style plot line and a Mad Max rip of sorts, its not too bad for an early effort, when I was young I watched it purely for the action and martial arts sequences, it hasn't got much else. The main baddie is pretty evil looking and as usual the final showdown at the end of every Jean Claude film is a martial arts fest and pretty cool.
The worst Van Damme movie I've seen, and I've seen nearly all of his
If Jean Claude Van Dame were a little bit younger, then he would've had a more successful career in this generation. Prime example: Cyborg.
This movie is so bad on so many different levels. I swear they were running on a $100 budget after JCVD's salary.
The sound was awful, the camera work bad, the background and props looked like a middle school play, the graphics were low standards even for 1989, and the worst was the acting! The bad guy just raised his arms and screamed AAARGH! Wow, that's menacing.
It's nice to watch JCVD round house kick his way through a movie... but it's sad to watch the guy he hits NOT sell the fight and then for the sound to be a half second off.
Geez, kill me now.... I'd rather watch a whole season of crap like Laguna Beach than watch this movie again.
