Cyborg Cop (theatrically released in the Philippines as Universal Warrior 2) is a 1993 American direct-to-video science-fiction action film starring David Bradley, John Rhys-Davies, Todd Jensen, Alonna Shaw, and Rufus Swart as the Cyborg. It was directed by Sam Firstenberg and written by Greg Latter. It is the first installment in the Cyborg Cop film series. The film has two sequels, Cyborg Cop II and Cyborg Cop III, released in 1995 as Terminal Impact.[1]


Ex-DEA officer Jack Ryan has quit his job following a terrible shoot-out. Jack Ryan receives a message for help from his brother Phillip, who had been employed for a dangerous military mission in the Caribbean. He is unaware that his brother is being used for an unprecedented scientific experiment: Professor Joachim Kessel has developed a technique to turn any soldier into a Cyborg - a half-human, half-robot creature - virtually indestructible. Thanks to his army of Cyborgs, Kessel wants to take over the Caribbean, and Jack will become a kind of "Cop of the Cyborgs" to stop the man.

Critical reception[edit]

Critical reception was generally, although not universally, poor. Halliwell's Film Guide, for example, described it as "dim standard robot action fodder" with a "violent, cliché-ridden plot".[3]
