1[[quoteright:250:]]²''Metalstorm: The Destruction of Jared-Syn'' is a 1983 science fiction movie filmed in 3D, directed by Charles Band, produced by Charles and Albert Band and Alan J. Adler, and written by Adler.²²On the planet Lemuria, intergalactic criminal Jared-Syn (Michael Preston) has become the leader of a tribe of humanoids called Nomads, who are determined to drive humans from their ancestral lands. The human ranger Dogen (Jeffrey Byron) follows him to Lemuria in order to defeat him. He teams up with Dhyana (Creator/KellyPreston), the daughter of a miner murdered by Jared-Syn's {{cyborg}} son Baal (R. David Smith), but Dhyana is soon kidnapped and taken to Jared-Syn's lair. Dogen searches for Jared-Syn's lair with the help of washed-up soldier Rhodes (Tim Thomerson).²----²!!''Metalstorm: The Destruction of Jared-Syn'' contains examples of:²* ArmCannon: Baal's left arm is a retractable robotic claw that shoots green acid.²* ChromaKey: Used to insert flying machines above the landscape.²* EnergyWeapon: Guns fire pulses of colored light, which usually set their targets on fire.²* EveryCarIsAPinto: The tank-like vehicles driven on Lemuria tend to explode into huge fireballs when damaged. Probably the best example is the vehicle that rolls down an incline and has just about come to a stop at the bottom when it suddenly explodes.²* FalseProphet: Jared-Syn tells the Nomads he'll help them get their land back. In fact, he's just using them as footsoldiers, and plans to enslave them all once he takes over Lemuria.²* KirksRock: Jared-Syn's hideout is located near the rocks.²* MyNaymeIs: "Dhyana" is pronounced "Diana."²* NeverTrustATitle: [[spoiler:Jared-Syn is not destroyed. He escapes through a portal in an obvious SequelHook that was never followed up.]]²* PowerCrystal: Jared-Syn hands each of his followers a red crystal, which they can use to [[YourSoulIsMine kill people and collect their life force]]. The red crystals are emptied into a giant white crystal at Jared-Syn's lair, which he believes will give him the power to conquer Lemuria once it's reached full power.²* RubberForeheadAliens: The Nomads have skin growing over their right eye sockets.²* SandWorm: Deep in Nomad territory, Dogen and Rhodes are attacked by a sand-swimming snake that almost drags Rhodes underground before Dogen shoots it.²* SeanConneryIsAboutToShootYou: In one scene, a character fires his weapon at the camera, causing blue light to almost fill the screen for a moment.²* YouKilledMyFather: Dhyana wants revenge on both Baal and Jared-Syn for her father's death.²----
