This film is action packed from beginning to end. Plenty of suspense. Plenty of action. The whole movie is definitely satisfying and will give you your adrenaline rush fix for the week
Any one who has followed my reviews at all probably knows that I am a huge MMA fan so it is a no brainier why I got this. Rich Franklin who is a former UFC Middleweight Champion now fighting in Light Heavyweight stars in this movie and I mean stars in this film. Most films with a famous athlete promote a film as if that person is a star only for them to have nothing more than a cameo or small part at the most. I was not expecting this film to be an instant classic so expectations were low which in this case may have actually helped.
The film is obviously about a Cyborg who is guess what a solider, sounds like a famous JCVD movie to me. Rich actually stars as Isaac which stands for something but it escapes me at the moment, and he is going rouge. When he escapes a team is sent out on the hunt for him and the mission is to terminate on sight, yikes. Once free he comes along a police officer named Lindsey Reardon played by "Saved by the Bell" alum Tiffani Thiessen. Whether she likes it or not she is his new side kick or maybe hostage depending on how you look at it. The film goes from action to a road film back into action and from were I am sitting it was actually enjoyable, at least with the brain off.
Writers Christopher Warre Smets, John Flock, and John Stead [also director] created a cool if some what "seen this before" storyline but it works for this material. The film moves along at a great pace never really feeling like it is being held up. While you won't find too much originality in the script or from the story you will no doubt be entertained if you don't go in expecting a grand film. Rich Franklin who is a light heavyweight fighter for the UFC actually does a good job for his acting debut.Read more ›
The story: Isaac (Rich Franklin, The Hammer) is a prototype superhuman soldier who escapes from a government lab and kidnaps a local sheriff (Tiffani Thiessen, Beverly Hills, 90210) en-route to fleeing from a gang of mercenaries hired to bring him back.
Yes, it's a dull take on Universal Soldier. Isaac is pumped up on nanobots that give him rapid healing capabilities and greater-than-average strength; he's also had his memory wiped, so there are shades of Luc Devereaux via a couple of unexplained flashbacks. Lindsay Reardon, the policewoman, might as well be a blonde reporter for all the use that she is: the fact that she's a policewoman is largely a moot point, since she requires her share of rescuing. Later on, the film does a slipshod job of explaining Isaac's past and existence, and doesn't even touch on why such a soldier needed to be created.
Action: The genre label on the DVD box reads "action/sci-fi," and while there's plenty of sci-fi as far as the backstory is concerned, "Cyborg" suffers from a decisive lack of action. There is exactly one short, uninspired shootout between Isaac and the mercenaries, and four hand-to-hand fights - three of which do not top fifteen seconds in length and one which, for lack of a better term, is a chick fight. The only worthwhile encounter is the final Isaac vs.Read more ›
But he breaks out and tries to find his origin. Enough said.
Stereotype shaved head assassins try to take him down, etc. Will he find the truth? Sorry, no spoilers here.
Another Canadian cheapie, but better than some. No nudity.
Don't rush out to get this thinking it is the must see movie of the decade, but do watch it. Don't expect greatness and you will probably be pleasantly surprised, as I was.

This is a low budget unknown new classic. Great characters and a fast moving thriller with twists and turns.Published 5 months ago by mark c. meade
I like Sci-fi as well as the next and I've watched loads of cyborg movies. The biggest draw was, I suppose, the wrestler, but over all it was kind of disappointing. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Kathleen Simmons

OK if you like Tiffany Amber Thiessen. General bad doctor and super soldier flick but watchable. It is ok to rent. Purchase is iffy.Published on June 14, 2013 by Hector A Joya
I started watching since it was free but like a lot of the "free" stuff on Prime, it was not worth my time. Acting was either over the top, non existent or just awful.Published on June 5, 2013 by Kindle Customer
