      Stephen Holden New York Times Mr. Van Damme's Gibson is so opaque that he makes Mel Gibson's Mad Max seem weepy by comparison. May 20, 2003 Full Review Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times Few genres amuse me more than post-apocalyptic fantasies about supermen fighting for survival. Cyborg is one of the funniest examples of this category, which crosses Escape from New York with The Road Warrior but cheats on the budget. Rated: 1/4 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Richard Harrington Washington Post It's just another martial arts film, all dressed up with no place to go. Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy It never distinguishes itself as anything but another Mad Max wannabe, although its minor success did lead to two straight-to-video sequels (the first with an 18-year-old Angelina Jolie, the second with OJ Simpson's freeloading houseguest Kato Kaelin). Rated: 2/4 Aug 29, 2021 Full Review Alan Ng Film Threat I loved all the fake gore. Plenty of decapitated heads on a pole and bodies swinging off chains. Kill or be killed. Rated: 6.5/10 Aug 24, 2021 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins Ironically enough, the most believable cyborg is Van Damme ... in his role as a human.

      Jay H It's less than 90 minutes long, and it's still an interminable bore. The music score is atrocious. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 04/19/24 Full Review Bryna L This is cult classic material. When I was a kid I was scared of the villain. The chase scene is epic. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/03/24 Full Review Andrew H Maybe it's nostalgia but to this day cyborg while it has its definite flaws is one of my favorite action movies of all time. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/17/23 Full Review William D Okay movie watch this once then not again. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 08/23/23 Full Review william d I loved this movie. Their are numerous versions of the film. I would recommend watching the directors cut as it is the best version of the film. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/18/23 Full Review David W Whilst not the greatest film in the Van-Damme canon he delivers a committed performance and it's generally a more than decent, low budget and always watchable post apocalypse martial arts actioner. It became a minor cult hit on its release and was successful enough to spawn a couple of even lower budget, straight-to-video, sequels which were simply awful (despite a young Angelina Jolie starring in the first sequel). Despite its financial constraints it happily passed my time and certainly has its moments of inspiration. A bigger budget and this could have been a real winner but as it stands there's still some good ideas and every penny of its meagre budget is put up there on screen by the inventive director Albert Pyun.
