I like how there's this weird cult film movement now that wants to somehow re-establish Albert Pyun's shitty movies as some kind of forgotten masterpieces.
I am guilty of thinking this film was awesome at 12 years old. Cyborgs. Kung fu. Van Damme. Apocalyptic setting. That shit had all the bases covered.
I don┤t know, this movie seems a littlYAAAAAHHH!
How could they leave out the only major FX scene where the titular cyborg takes off her wig and we see a bunch of "I'm a robot" stop-motion junk for three whole seconds?

The second I saw the Cannon Films logo at the end, I said "Oh, that explains everything."
I said it out loud.
JCVD's character is named Gibson, and the bad guy's name is Fender. Heh.
SCREENWRITER: I have an idea for a movie I think you'll like. It's called Cyborg.
PRODUCER: Good. Describe it in two words.
SCREENWRITER: MAAAAAAAD MAAAAAAAAX!!!

"A terrible disease is wiping out humanity. We need to get information off a computer in another city and bring it back here to create a cure."
"I've got a thumb drive. We can pay some bad-ass mother-fuckers to go get the info."
"No! We'll install computers inside the body of this woman and she can go there, download the data into herself and come back."
"So you'll turn her into a bad-ass killer cyborg?"
"We'll turn her into a cyborg!"
"Bad-ass killer cyborg?"
"Why are you so hung up on everything being a bad-ass killer?"
"Uh, gee, I don't know. How about all the crazy, evil, armor-plated bastards swarming over the ruined landscape?"
"I don't see how being a bad-ass killer will help with that."
"Are you fucking SERIOUS?"
"Look, we're going to turn this woman into a cyborg with strength equal to that of the average human woman and send her out into a post-apocalyptic wasteland to retrieve mankind's last hope and that's final!"
