Cyborg Soldier (2007/First Look DVD)


Picture: C+†††† Sound: C+†††† Extras: C-†††† Main Program: C



So many years after the Terminator films had their success, there is a fourth film coming and many imitators, with the TV series subtitled The Sarah Connors Chronicles felling like one of those rip-offs.So when we got out hands on John Steadís imitator Cyborg Soldier (2007) we expected a disaster and got an unintentionally funny mess with Tiffani Thiessen trying to toughen up and Bruce Greenwood hanging in there as a robot (Rich Franklin, trying to do Schwarzenegger Americain) killing machine.


It then becomes a short 84 minutes of wasting unknown actors and zero chemistry between Thiessen and Franklin, trotting through the same old formula, but it is the awkward way they go through it that makes this more watchable as camp by default than I expected.If you need a good laugh, this might be the cheesy time killer to check out.


The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image is soft as expected with awkward editing and shots, while the Dolby Digital 5.1 mix has weak surrounds and problematic dialogue playback.Extras include previews for other First Look releases.
