Towards the end of the film, just after Gibson removes a bandage from his wrist, the camera pans upward, revealing a large gust of smoke and a crew member in the bottom left corner. See more »
First there was the collapse of civilization: anarchy, genocide, starvation. Then when it seemed things couldn't get any worse, we got the plague. The Living Death, quickly closing its fist over the entire planet. Then we heard the rumors: that the last scientists were working on a cure that would end the plague and restore the world. Restore it? Why? I like the death! I like the misery! I like this world!

SPOILER: The film's ending was extended in Albert Pyun's director's cut of the film which was to set the stage for a planned sequel Cyborg: The Dark Rift. In the extended ending, we cut to 9 months later and a electrical storm is seen and a sphere flashes and an unknown naked woman (A cyborg) appears and it ends with the caption. "Next: Cyborg Nemesis: The Dark Rift". The extended ending ripped off and was a nod to The Terminator and it's sequels and the spin-off TV series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. However, production of the movie had been canceled due to Pyun being diagnosed with dementia. See more »
Yes, of course the movie has action. But that is all it has. Basically, you get to see Van Damme run from a big group of bad guys and beat the crap out of them every time he stops. No kidding, this is just "run to this location, fight, run to new location, fight some more.." ad infinitum. Good action movies know you need breaks and pacing, but this one had none. There was nothing too impressive to me about the fight scenes, either. You just never get that "high stakes" feeling that make action movies thrilling.
