3.0 out of 5 stars Bad in an interesting way February 14, 2005
Format:DVD
The first Cyborg film was an early entry in Jean-Claude Van Damme's filmography. Directed by one of the great hacks in the industry, Albert Pyun, "Cyborg" told the harrowing story of a world decimated by a devastating plague. Only a few shreds of civilization remain in this blasted world, a world largely populated by ragtag bands of survivors and packs of murderous cyborgs. A few of the more enlightened types at the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta send out a female cyborg with instructions to recover a cure for this horrific plague. Problems quickly ensue, particularly once a band of especially heinous cyborgs learn of this mission and attempt to capture the Disease Control's operative; they believe doing so will allow them to return to Atlanta and find a wealth of weapons and other valuables. In order to avoid these murderous goons, the female cyborg hooks up with Jean-Claude, who plays some sort of protector/tracker for hire. Of course, Van Damme's character has a tragic past that ties in with the very same goons involved in tracking down the female cyborg. Lots of action sequences, most of which aren't that bad, follow. "Cyborg" is actually an entertaining science fiction film.

What does the above description have to do with "Cyborg 2"? Nothing, actually, since the second film has zero connection with the original. In this outing, the movie introduces us to an unpleasant future world in which two megacorporations vie with each other for supremacy of the world cyborg market. One of these companies, Pinwheel, hatches a plot to sabotage its competitor by rigging up a female cyborg named Cash (Angelina Jolie) with a special explosive called Glass Shadow that will detonate at an important conference.

4.0 out of 5 stars surprisingly good June 18, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I brought this film ONLY because Angelina Jolie is a lead character. I'd read the reviews, and I knew it was a science fiction film (not my favorite genre), but I brought it anyway.
I was pleasently surprised. This is a good film! The lead characters do a great job with the material, and the special effects are immpressive for a early 90's film. If I, a person who avoids science fiction like a plague can enjoy this, there's hope for everyone!
If you're a Jolie fan, don't miss out on this film! If you want to see a science fiction sleeper, give this film a try!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the "Cyborg" I was expecting.... January 16, 2005
Format:DVD
I have come to the conclusion that the writter of "Cyborg 2" wrote a script called "Cyborg" until he found out there was already a movie called that. He went "Oh Hell!", rewrote the script by slapping in a few "references" to the original film and slapped a "2" in the title and called it good. As you can tell this film has little to no connection to the original Van Damne actionier. Its basically a totally different film thats only connection is that they both have a "cyborg". Say what you will, but I enjoyed the original Cyborg for what it was. It was a no brain karate flick with some sci fi undertones that took place in a post apocalyptic "Road Warrior" like future. This sequel however has the action take a back seat as the as the sci fi/love story takes over in a post apocalyptic "Blade Runner" like future. This could be a good or bad thing in some peoples eyes. I was expecting something along the lines of the first film and I did not get that. Apparently the director/writer of Cyborg 2 thought it necessary to make another sequel, a sequel I will not bother to watch.

4.0 out of 5 stars a teenage jolie July 22, 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I think this is a movie that jolie fans would want to see because it shows Angie at a time at her life ( 17 or 18 ) that isn't documented anywhere else. All her other films show her in her 20's, but this movie shows her still young. It's quite interesting to watch. The only thing that struck me to this film was Angie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Young Jolie November 4, 2008
By mrsardo
Format:DVD
It's cheesy, it's kinda lame, sure. Yet, there's Angie in her first big role. I watch movies like Tomb Raider 2 and Wanted now, and then I look back at her early career, such as in this campy thriller. It's a fun movie, if only because we can see how far Jolie's career has progressed. Changeling, by the way, is fantastic. Hopefully she won't retire just yet.

3.0 out of 5 stars 19 yr old Angelina, enough said March 4, 2008
Format:DVD
This movie was overall so-so. If you happen to catch it on cable tv, its worth a watch but I wouldn't sprint to the rental store to get it. On the other hand, I believe, this flick has Angelina Jolie's first nude scene (if your in to that then I DO suggest sprinting to the rental store). This movie seemed to substitute nakedness for violence throughout. Both movies in the cyborg series are practically unrelated so if you've missed the first (I highly recommend you see it though) you wont be out of the loop...

2.0 out of 5 stars This is a sequel? February 27, 2008
Format:DVD
It escapes all reason sometimes when someone decides to make a sequel to a movie. It's even worse when the sequel is in no way related to the original. This is what we have with Cyborg 2. You could have called the movie anything and nobody would have known the difference. It's as if they tagged it onto the original Cyborg movie to get people who liked the first one to come back. Shame on you guys for doing this because not only have you made a weak movie but you try to sell it off as a sequel just like a snake oil salesman. Cyborg 2 is not worth much of anybody's time, which is sad considering something actually could have been done with the franchise.

The plot is actually interesting and is something I would expect to see from a Blade Runner type cyberpunk film. Corporate greed going too far in a high tech dystopic society tends to bring out some interesting developments. The problem is they don't do anything with this plot. Once the main characters find out what they need to do the movie just goes through the motions. Another thing about it is it's not even related to the last movie. Though they try to make the post apocalyptic look the same as Cyborg in some places but you also have the Blade Runner-esque cities that don't really match the original themes. They don't even mention stuff from the last movie like the plague or what happened to the last cyborg. They aren't even talking about the same kind of cyborgs here! The last movie they were a little bit human. Here they are all robot. It's not a sequel.

At least the villains in this movie have stronger motivations than the last. Too bad the subsequent actions don't make any sense.
