As long as you arent expecting a masterpeice then its worth it. Basically there are now cyborgs/robots around called atomatics. They are for home security and they all look the same.
One night at the headquaters trying to protect a women being attacked by her boss. Atomatic number J269 inavertantly kills him. This breaks the first rule, protect your masters. The head of the corpartion has a rather final solution to the problem both of them pose just before a big press release. Be warned this is in 4.3 so no wide screen.
Great fun as there martial arts, and gun battles as they try to escape.

TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 1 April 2014
The makers had a decent go at this lower budget sci-fi diehard hybrid. The screenplay is very familiar but it's still enjoyable and considering the smaller budget, they've done really well with the set dressing. The direction is straightforward and the story is uncomplicated. Gruner has loads of appeal as the strong silent type and this role made the very best of his acting and language abilities at the time. The premise is set in the near future where robotic simulants are commonplace in the home and the latest protection model J269 (Gruner) occupies a position at the company office where the simulants are made. When a company executive attacks a female colleague J269 intervenes with fatal consequences. Fearing the obvious repercussions, the company boss decides to cover it up by getting rid of the pair. The picture then sees Gruner and the female (Daphne Ashbrooke - the doctor who movie) navigate their way out of the huge building whilst battling the team of mercenaries sent to deal with them. The action scenes are plentiful and they make the most of Gruner's obvious hand to hand skills, there's even a bit of a reveal towards the end. It looses one star for the lighting, many scenes are really badly lit.

action packed, decent enough special effects great robot acting

Exactly as i was hoping it would be. The quality of the video is better than a VHS taped burned to a DVD, so I guess it's a genuine video. I had some doubts because i have nothing to compare it too, here in the United States there are none. I had to go off shore to find it. Shipping speed was excellent, It's a great relief on my part from having to know the currency differencies.

Though this Sci-fi flick has a low budget it has some excellent performances and a gripping Story.Though Gruners acting abilities are limited He plays this part well and of course excels in the fight Scenes.Its action packed with a great story and is a great way to spend 90 minutes.
