Overview

Criticized for its murky cinematography, bad special effects, and dialogue that would embarrass Sylvester Stallone, this Japanese co-production was widely regarded as a costly flop. Set in the year 2035 after evil supercomputer Kyron-5's war against humanity ends with defeat, the earth is left scared and plighted, lacking most natural resources. Computer chips have become more valuable than gold and the place to find such treasure is on the island 8JO, where Kyron still lives. Ex-pilot and cyber-buccaneer Brooklyn (Masahiro Takashima) and his gang of cutthroats venture to this techno-jungle looking for his silicon booty. There he meets Nim (Brenda Nim), a commando who is part of the Texas Air Rangers looking for a renegade robot. The group is soon under attack by a fleet of dreaded flying Aerobots. Meanwhile, Kyron-5 is hard at work hatching his revenge against mankind. It has invented a substance containing more energy than plutonium called texmexium. After successive onslaughts of Aerobots, the four survivors -- Brooklyn, Nim, and two lovable moppets named 7 and 11 -- find the texmexium and start to build Gunhed (Gun Unit/Heavy Elimination Device) a giant robot designed to kick Aerobot tail. More mayhem and cool explosions ensue, but not before Brooklyn gives an impassioned and surreal speech about the Brooklyn Dodgers.
