    BRILLIANT TRASH

    Originally intended to be the sequel of MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE, a box office bomb, CYBORG is the post-apocalyptic story of a Slinger (hired protector) named Gibson Rickenbacker (Jean-Claude Van Damme) who sets out for revenge against Fender Tremolo (Vincent Klyn), the hellish villain who murdered the woman he loved. If the names Gibson and Fender sound familiar, it's because all the characters are named after guitars or accessories like Roland Pick, Marshall Strat and Pearl Prophet. Fender also possesses The Cyborg, an half woman/half machine who has the technology to wipe out the plague that infests the world. Director Albert Pyun (THE SWORD AND THE SORCERER) and screenwriter Kitty Chalmers (JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH) borrowed plot elements and styles from legendary filmmakers like John Ford, Akira Kurosawa and Sergio Leone -- and their films -- STAGECOACH, THE SEARCHERS, THE HIDDEN FORTRESS, THE SEVEN SAMURAI, A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS and THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY. The film is essentially a western -- punctuated with droves of kung fu and savaté -- and dressed in the melancholy garment of post-apocalypse à la THE ROAD WARRIOR and ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK -- only with 1/3 of each film's budget. Don't watch the film expecting state-of-the-art special effects, great acting or complex storytelling. This is a grade-B trashy sci-fi flick -- the 50s had 'em like MONSTER FROM GREEN HELL and THE GIANT GILA MONSTER -- and the 80s had just as many, such as CYBORG and COMMANDO. For a trash classic, the film’s soundtrack boasts an above-average score by composer Kevin Bassinson “SMALLVILLE” (TV). As far a trashy cinema goes, CYBORG stands at the top of the heap. Roger Ebert included the film in his pretentious book `I Hated, Hated, Hated This Movie' -- all the more reason not to miss it!

    ''He's The First Hero Of The 21st Century!''...

    ...so read the byline on the poster for the post-apocalyptic Van Damme action feature, ''Cyborg''. This was the first Jean-Claude Van Damme movie I saw on the big screen, so therefore it has sentimental value to me. In his first role that did not stereotype him into the martial arts genre, Van Damme plays the part of Gibson Rickenbacker, a Slinger, who's job it is to ''get people out of the city''...in safety and past the marauding hordes and barbaric pirates who roam the country freely. One pirate in particular, Fender Tremolo (Vincent Klyn - ''Kickboxer 2 - The Road Back'', ''Point Break'' & ''Nemesis''), has crossed paths with Gibson before. In Gibson's quest to bring to rest the evils of his past, he also helps a cyborg, Pearl Prophet (Dayle Haddon - ''The World's Greatest Athlete'' & ''Bullets Over Broadway''), who is carrying vital information from New York to Atlanta to the last group of scientists and doctors alive, for a cure of the deadly global plague that mankind is now suffering. Fender wants to subdue the cure for himself, so that he will be a ''god'' and all humanity will have to bow to his will. It is the ultimate race to save not only the cyborg, the cure, and therefore the human race...but an old friend he finds along the way as well. This is a great, fun film...and for action fans, a must see!
