Great Movie, Outstanding Soundtrack,
This review is from: Circuitry Man 1 & 2 (DVD)
First, this movie is one of my favorites. The film is solid the acting is great, and the music is beautiful.
Deborah Holland's "You're Makin Me Crazy," is such a beautiful song. I would love to see more films she scored.
Anyway, to the movie itself: You gotta love it. This is a fun, futuristic road movie. Jim Metzler is great as he was in A Gun a Car and a Blonde. Dana Wheeler Nicholson was also great; you really felt for her character, tough, attractive woman looking for something she will probably never find, but she won't give up. Lu Leonard as Juice is outstanding. Vernon Wells as Plughead really sets the mood of the film. The characters all fit well in this film especially Denis Christopher's Leach. But the show stealers are Paul Wilson and Andy Goldberg as Squaid and Beane. Paul Wilson was also great in a movie called The Devonshire Terror with Donald Pleasants and Suzanne Love. He had hair too.
This DVD Pak is great especially the commentary.
As for Circuitry Man II on the flip side, it is a good solid follow up to the original, and although Debra Sheldon is very sexy and tough and the love scene with her and Metzler was great (especially that song Walk Away), I really would have like to see Dana Wheeler Nicholson back.
Jim Metzler is a great actor and should really be seen in more films. He is a great leading man.
There was talk about a Circuitry Man 3, anyone know about that? I hope they make it.
Circuitry Man was plugging before the Matrix copied Dark City. If they do make a 3rd installment, I hope they bring back Dana Wheeler Nicholson and definately let Deborah Holland Score the film.

I was in video distribution when this hit VHS and I remember liking it a lot. I totally forgot it existed and now I'm figuring I need to re-visit. With your review I'm figuring I need to plop down my $17.00.
