A {{cyberpunk}} movie from 1992 by Albert "Film/{{Cyborg}}" Pyun, starring Olivier [[PoorMansSubstitute "Poor Man's Van Damme"]] Gruner as a {{cyborg}} ex-LAPD officer. Unlike most cyberpunk movies, though, it mostly takes place in tropical Java. Gruner's character Alex is a washed-up cop turned courier who is contacted by his suspicious former superiors to find a rogue cyborg (also his ex-girlfriend) but it turns out it's mostly just an excuse to get him close to her so they can make him explode and kill them both. What follows is a long, protracted chase scene with a lot of exploding machinery and machine people.

* AmazonianBeauty: Alex (Sue Price) in the sequels, a rare example of an ActionGirl lead who is actually muscular.

* BulletholeDoor: Bullethole Floor. A full decade before ''Underworld'', this movie did it first and more crazily, with Alex shooting his way through three or four (maybe even five or six) floors.

* CoolShades: Lots of people, but mostly the bad guys. Farnsworth and his #1 henchman played by Brion James have a cool microphone/earpiece attached to them.
