Nomination Year: 1997
SYNOPSIS: The sad thing is that I saw this film on video the same year it was released.
So this is what I remember of it:
Our heroine (Kathy Long) is searching for her younger brother, accompanied by a friendly cyborg (Kris Kristofferson). There's also an element of "saving the human race from the cyborg menace" in an effort to make this film stand apart from every other post-apocalyptic kickboxer-turned-actress vehicle. It fails.
At the end of the film, the bad guy shows up, grows a hang glider, tells the heroine "I'll be waiting for you in Cyborg City," and flies away with her brother.
Blatant sequel bait. Bait which (to my great relief) has not yet been taken.
- Best One-Liner
"Oh No, Am I on Fire Now?"
A disgusted cyborg, tired of always getting beaten up, suffers one further indignity: "Oh no, am I on fire now?"
- Inane Dialogue
"This Is Weird."
Heroine hefts the half-body of cyborg onto her back so that they can fight back-to-back. Her incisive commentary? "This is weird."
- Crummiest Ending
Ending voice-over: "We would fight many battles, which would take us beyond Cyborg City, and to other places and times." As they ride off into the sunset after the bad guy.
