Hardware Overview

Mark 13 is a government-built killing machine programmed with artificial intelligence, able to repair and recharge itself from any energy source. Through a series of coincidences, the cyborg's head ends up in the home of a sculptress as a bizarre Christmas present from her boyfriend. Once inside its new home, the cyborg promptly reconstructs the rest of its body using a variety of household utensils and proceeds to go on a murderous rampage.

Review for Hardware

Author: nihil

IMO - It's not terrible but not a masterpiece either. I personally liked the villain robot, and a lot of the movies' aesthetics were just pure eye candy. That aside, the movie was a little too slow paced for the style that it was going with, and some of the music and sound effects were a little silly. You get to listen to Iggy say a few amusing lines on the radio in the beginning and the end of the movie. Overall, not bad, a little boring at times. A good watch if you're into cyberpunk.
