Great genre-movie, a must see for fans
This was a real gem! A small movie that really made the most of its budget. It was a great thrill-ride and a lot of fun. I have to admit that the basic story is a total ROBOCOP rip-off, but still the movie knew exactly how to play the story and make it into something genuine and fun. There were a few scenes that were a dead-on copy of the original ROBOCOP and I would have rather see the makers give it an original twist, which they shamefully didn't. Nonetheless this is a great movie with tons of in-jokes and funny cameos. Especially Tom Savini and Bruce Campbell are absolutely brilliant. There is also a lot of sick twisted humor in the movie that gives it the stuff to be a cult movie. The best thing in the movie tough is Nicole Eggerd. She makes a much better super-hero than her Baywatch ex-costar Pamela Anderson did in Barb Wire. The biggest difference; Nicole can act! Next to that, this movie has the balls to be dark, in stead of sexy. Great directional debut by KNB-EFX-master Robert Kurtzman too! An absolute must see!!!
