Number of Times Seen – At least 5-10 times (Theater, video, dvd and 18 Dec 2013)
Brief Synopsis – A murdered Detroit police officer is recruited as the first cyborg cop to clean up the streets of the town.
My Take on it – I really liked this movie as a kid and it was somewhat disappointing to see it again now.
I actually have some great memories of watching this movie on video. When it came out on video, my bets friend and I rented it and watched it more than once on the same day and as 13 year old boys might do, we watched the gory parts in slo-mo.
Re-watching it now, I am proud to say that my memory of most of the movie is still quite intact and I recalled (and anticipated) many of the scenes that I loved as a kid.
The story here is pretty lame though and it turns this movie into a generic 80’s action cop movie.
I wonder how good the remake of this movie will be when it debuts next year.
Let’s hope it’s a bit more cerebral than this one is.
Bottom Line – Liked it much better when I was a kid. It’s pretty much a mediocre 80’s cop movie.
Rating – BAFTA Worthy
