Cyborg Cop 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.

The film has two sequels, Cyborg Cop II and Cyborg Cop III, released in 1995 as Terminal Impact.[1]

Plot[edit]

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 response[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."[2]
