Synopsis:A martial artist hunts a killer in a plague-infested urban dump of the future.
Albert Pyun directed Cyborg (1989) was shot on a shockingly low estimated budget of $500,000. Cyborg grossed a ridiculous $10.1 million at the US box office.
Cyborg is about Gibson Rickenbacker (Jean-Claude Van Damme) as a martial artist hunting a killer in the future. This future is a plague-infested nightmare, and Gibson is chasing the leader of a group of crazies.
Cyborg is a film that no doubt drew in action movie fans by casting Van Damme. This film has no fancy sets, sceneries and is very gritty. The action scenes are the highlights of a movie that has a depressingly lousy story. The movie plot is so basic and speaking about the action scenes; there are instances where they were not choreographed well, missing key points.
In full honesty, I too fall victim to the Van Damme era being a child of the 80s. I gave Cyborg a 6 out 10 from my perspective. Many folks will give Cyborg a 5 out of 10.
