Mandroid is a 1993 film directed by Jack Ersgard starring Robert Symonds and Curt Lowens.


In his hidden laboratory deep in Russia, Dr. Karl Zimmer (Symonds) has invented the Mandroid, a humanoid robot which follows the motions of a man in a special control suit. He has offered the invention to the United States, which has sent Agent Joe Smith and Dr. Wade from the CIA for inspection.

However Zimmer's partner Drago (Lowens) has different plans, and wants to sell Mandroid to the military. The night he tries to steal Mandroid, he becomes exposed to the highly toxic Superconn and is terribly disfigured. During the struggle Zimmer's assistant Ben Knight also becomes exposed however he begins to turn invisible.

Drago enslaves a homeless mute and partially fixes his face. But the mute has to make him a metal mask. Using the Mandroid, Drago kidnaps Smith. Drago demands that Zimmer give him the Superconn in exchange for Smith.

Zimmer, Zana and Wade retrieve the Superconn. Meanwhile Smith is revealed to be in cahoots with Drago. The chief of police arrives at the trade with a squad of police officers.

Through Mandroid, Drago reveals Smith's duplicity and fatally shoots Zimmer, then shoots Smith. As Zana mourns her father, the rest of them go after Drago and the Mandroid. Mandroid kills all of the police. Smith atones by killing the mute but dies from his injuries.

Wade destroys the Mandroid. Drago shoots Wades legs crippling him. Wade causes the building to collapse on him.

Wade and Zana start a relationship. Drago is revealed to be alive.



A sequel, entitled Invisible: The Chronicles of Benjamin Knight followed the same year.
