Spencer Griffith's life changes when a meteor falls into a local junkyard, and he finds a Cybersuit, an exoskeleton with AI from another galaxy. When Spencer puts on the Cybersuit he becomes a different kind of person.
After the film's debut, Joseph Mazzello was asked in a magazine interview how he liked the role, with the interviewer assuming playing a kid in an exo-suit must have been exciting. Mazzello replied that it wasn't very much fun since a stuntman did all of the exterior shots of the Cyborsuit and all he got to do for the reaction shots was sit on a stool in front of a screen.
How am I supposed to eat this thing?
Cyborsuit: Insert nourishment into food processing cepticle.
Spencer Griffith: Here it goes.
Cyborsuit: Stand by to receive nourishment.
Spencer Griffith: I'm supposed to eat that?
Spencer Griffith: What is this?
Cyborsuit: One synthesized nebular burger. All non-essential compounds have been filtered ...
The dirt on Spencer's clothing after coming out of a garbage can changes when it switches to him entering the car.
