I wrote a review for the V.H.S. edition of this film, a few years ago, but it is gone now, because it is no longer available on V.H.S. and Amazon has completely removed it from their database. I saw this movie when it came out 25 years ago (1983). I've always liked it a lot. The scientist that created the android, gets very attached to it throughout this movie, because he and his wife were never able to have children of their own, so the human looking android is like a "son" figure for the scientist. I like that aspect of this film. The ending is sad, but Michael (the android), did the right thing. The government would have used him for the wrong reasons. Watch this movie and I think that you will like it.
