I felt 10 years old watching Eliminators last night. When it came out in the mid 80s it was regarded as a cheap cash-in of bigger movies like Terminator and Robocop but it's story bares no resemblance and it actually sets itself apart. Yes it's cheap and yes it's cheesy but that's exactly what makes it so endearing. Its the story about a mad scientist who is perfecting time travel. When he no longer has a use for his mandroid and another fellow colleague he orders their execution. The mandroid survives and embarks on a mission of revenge. Teaming up with a sexy hardware designer and jungle-man the 3 join forces with a ninja (son of the slain colleague) and plough their way through henchmen after henchmen. Bullets fly, things explode and lasers slice... its B-movie magic at its best and Exterminators benefits from the course of time. I enjoyed it even more 27 years later than I did when I was a kid. Some of you have seen me spruiking the shit out of a new movie called Manborg... well Manborg took almost all of its inspiration from Exterminators... so much so that its almost a remake. This is fun stuff and if you've never seen this slice of 80s B-nostalgia then track it down and watch it with mates (drinks will help).
