An average college student becomes a reluctant hero after going to work for a bio-mechanical engineer, then getting stuck in a revolutionary new battle suit after his mentor is murdered by a scheming arms dealer. Dr. Arthur Blake was on the verge of completing his life's work when he was viciously gunned down by Sebastian Reed, who plans to get rich by marketing the powerful suit as the ultimate weapon of war. Realizing that he is now trapped in a high-tech metal exoskeleton, Kyle narrowly escapes death thanks to the late Dr. Blake, who has created an artificial intelligence program based on his likeness and installed it into the suit's helmet. Determined to get the suit at any cost, Reed kills Kyle's parents and abducts his girlfriend before unleashing an army of ninjas and a murderous robot to track it down. Now, with a little help from Dr. Marissa Lee - who has her own reasons for wanting to see Reed suffer - Kyle finally harnesses the true powers of the battle suit, and prepares for battle.
