Sci-fi action directed by Sergio Martino starring Daniel Greene and Janet Agren. In a dystopian world, a ruthless industrialist devises a means of destroying a group which stands in the way of his designs. He creates a cyborg named Paco Queruak (Greene) with the objective to kill the leader of the opposing faction. Paco fails in his task however, and flees to the desert junkyards of Arizona. He is pursued by those who made him, and in facing them must choose whether to embrace the machine or the person inside him.

Set in one of those post apocalyptic futures that aims for big budget, but basically ends up looking like a building site - we first meet futuristic assassin Paco Querak (try saying that three times, drunk) played by a fellow named Daniel Greene who spends much of the film with a nonchalant grimace that swings between boredom or presumably in need of a large poo. With his crazy kung fu hands and biker gang gone wrong leather outfit, he's a cyborg on a serious mission. However, when he bungles the assassination of an ecological faction leader who stands in the way of Paco's corrupt governments' plans, he hightails it outta there - on the run and out for salvation. Hiding out in Arizona at a cheap motel, between falling in love with the friendly owner Linda (Janet Agren) he also has time to arm wrestle (see, I knew those funky mitts would come in somewhere) a bunch of awesome truckers whilst awaiting an army of trained killers who have been hired by movie villain John Saxon, dead set on silencing our bequiffed hero - no matter how hard that may be…
This 1983 effort directed by Sergio Martino ('Torso' and 'The Mountain of the Cannibal God') helms the film with an assured hand and everything zips along at a steady pace, never allowing you to get bored or indeed wonder what all this rubbish is actually about.Read more ›
The arm wrestling makes no sense to me, though it was a fun enough distraction and at least the third act was a perfect landing. Satisfying with an off-kilter final frame. Yes, this is a message film.
Oh and John Saxon and George Eastman. Three Stars!!!
This was Sergio Martino's cash in on the huge success of Terminator. Instead of Arnold Schwarzenegger we get American muscle man Daniel Greene whose physical appearance may look impressive but his acting talents are not.
Sergio Martino was a talented director and made some of the best Italian movies of the 1970's but during the 1980's his budgets clearly got smaller and he had no choice but to make cheap imitations of popular Hollywood movies.
The majority of the film is set around Paco hiding out with Linda at the isolated Motel. Its obvious that they were going to fall in love and its pretty clear how the film is going to pan out but that doesn't necessarily make this a bad movie. As even with its predicable story, poor acting and low budget I did actually find some scenes pretty good.
For a action movie this doesn't really get going until about hour into the film and from then its all, car cases, helicopter attacks and shoot-outs before then however the only real action we get to see is Paco taking on some local truck drivers (lead by George Eastman) in arm wrestling contests.
Overall a average Italian B movie that is prohaps most famous for been the film in which actor Claudio Cassinelli (who plays a hitman here) was killed during a helicopter crash.
If you want to watch a better Sci film directed by Sergio Martino checkout '2019 Fall of New York' with Michael Sopkiw

I always loved this spaghetti "Terminator" style rip off.
There is not one moment of this movie without decent action, car chases or fight scene. Read more
It's the eighties. It's awful acting. It's awful eighties music. It's Italian. It's John Saxon. It's awful effects. It has more arm wrestling than Over the Top. It is GREAT.Published 5 months ago by Mr R P Smith
A worthy addition to the Italian collection. It's pretty bad but in a good way. The acting is non existent but if you are watching this you know what you are getting. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
