The Plot: 

He might not be the main character in the film, but Jack Palance is certainly the reason to watch it. "Glass Shadow" is the code name for a new explosive, the substance is injected into a cyborg and then detonated when it reaches the desired point. (Corporate headquarters of Pinwheel's competitors in this case.) Too bad they didn't keep it a secret from Mercy, with his help Casella and Colt are able to escape the complex. One amazing incident stands out, she hits a security guard with a thrown weapon and he falls over backwards. Doesn't sound very helpful does it? Well it is when he accidentally manages to pull the trigger on his own weapon and gun down every other security guard in sight. (I'm not kidding.) Let's not forget that Mercy can use any monitor or television set as a conduit, even one which is sitting on a junk pile and probably not plugged in. We spend about half the movie watching our protagonists dodge Mr. Bench and Chen before finally arriving at a defunct shipyard. This is where Mercy is hiding out, who would look for him on the bridge of a ship he once commanded? (Roll eyes here.) When the Pinwheel goons do show up it looks like the end for Casella and Colt, until Mercy starts firing grenades in addition to witty comments. The two lovers escape, the cyborg is taken in chains to Pinwheel headquarters, and Colt dies of old age. All of it set to Jack Palance's narration and touching new age music.

Things I Learned From This Movie: 

  • Jack Palance likes to go cyber-peeping.
  • Elevators have secret trapdoors in the floor, these are only covered by thin wood paneling.
  • Women go crosseyed just before they explode.
  • Ancient (Over a hundred years old.) pickup trucks are lying all over the place in the future.
  • Candy corn is a powerful drug.
  • Abandoned museums will still contain their exhibits.
  • It's pretty difficult to convince a mass produced cyborg that she is special.
  • Never take cover from gunfire behind a glass display case.
  • Romeo and Juliet were cyborgs.
  • Avoid kickboxing matches if you have just undergone plastic surgery.

Stuff To Watch For: 

  • 3 mins - Are they building a cyborg or making a strawberry shake?
  • 5 mins - RANDOM GRATUITOUS BREAST SHOT!
  • 13 mins - Why did they put the computer interface on her hip?
  • 23 mins - This director must love "Star Wars."
  • 30 mins - I can understand him hacking a computer terminal, but an old TV?
  • 35 mins - RANDOM GRATUITOUS BREAST SHOT!
  • 41 mins - RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE AGAINST A WINDOW!
  • 46 mins - He left quite a smear...
  • 64 mins - RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE AGAINST A DINING ROOM!
  • 72 mins - Didn't the camera/dart thing hit him in the other eye?
  • 75 mins - RANDOM GRATUITOUS BREAST SHOT!

This scene is a jaw dropper; I still cannot get over it. Check this out, she gymnastics her way down the hall, then chucks a weapon at one guard. When the guard is hit he falls over backwards and shoots all his buddies.

I found this one to be slow at times, although Jack Palance ruled every scene he was in. What really got me though was the fact that Angelina Jolie was probably not, as they say "of legal age" when she made this movie back in early -93, which would make this the (besides Traci Lordsīs body of work) probably only piece of child-pornography widely distributed.

This alone makes it one of the weirdest films on this site.

Jack Palance is a huge reason to see this film.  His character is just awesome.  "If you're going to dine with the Devil, you'll need long spoon!" (Say that like Mr. Palance would; it's hilarious.)

The IMDb lists the release date for "Cyborg 2" as 24 Nov 1993.  Angelina Jolie would have turned 18 on 4 June 1993 (again, per the IMDb).  It is feasible for her topless scenes to have been shot after her birthday.

only one upside: seeing a young Angelina Jolie in her best shape, style, and looks.
Otherwise it's junky. the first Cyborg was cheesy but still it has it's own quality to it.
It's blunt, in your face, no excuses, grainy, dirty, and dark. The only movie where Jean-Claude Van Dam had some great fighting scenes. I mean a sharp nail coming out the front of your boot as your kick their throat is just too awesome.

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
