Trivia

The extended ending of Albert Pyun's director's cut of the original Cyborg (1989) set the stage of this film. In the extended ending of the director's cut, we cut to 9 months later and we see a electrical storm, a sphere flashes a naked woman (A cyborg) appears and a caption appears: "Next: Cyborg Nemesis: The Dark Rift". The extended ending of the director's cut ripped off and was a nod to The Terminator (1984) its sequels and the spin-off television series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (2008). See more »

Interesting take on post apocalypse
1 September 2013 | by boyerchezSee all my reviews

Saw a very early, possibly the first, cut screening of this film back in March. It was still needing CG work and the sound was rough. What I gleamed from the version I saw, was the film is set several centuries after the Van Damme Cyborg film. No, there's no Van Damme and no "FENDERRRRR". So its not really a sequel, prequel or whatever other form these tenuous connections take on. What it is, is a very complicated and complex take on the whole messiah as hero trope. The film really spins the entire Joseph Campbell hero's journey on its ear. The film asks and explores what if you were both the savior and the destroyer, hero and villain rolled into one. There were several "Scene Missing" cards so it was a disjointed, but the core of the film's thematic track was apparent. Joi Fulco plays these messiah / Lucifer hybrid. She's interesting but it was hard to tell how her acting is. As in all Albert Pyun films, there's a lot of imaginative visuals and an unorthodox style to everything. I think he might have jumped the gun on screening the cut as it needed work but the ideas rang through impressively. It's not derivative or stuck in genre conventions. It's as if Cyborg was remade with the style of 2001 or Tree of Life. Its that metaphysical in design. I am curious to see the final version.
