The Bronx Executioner (1989)

aka Cyborg Executioners

How bad is it? Hoo boy, this one stinks.
Should you see it? No.

I'm not a fan of 1980's Italian horror films and their action/sci-fi are worse; didn't care for 1990: The Bronx Warriors; also didn't care for "The Last Executioner." That last statement's important, because at least half of this film is recycled from that one. Woody Strode's lines are redubbed - I think he talks while drinking at one point. In this post-apocalyptic world, "The Bronx" consists of desert and jungle. Scenes shot from multiple angles are used as separate scenes and guys shot on one set die on another when they fall. There's a pointless expository introduction by Michael Dudikoff. There's a computer that beeps for minutes. A man puts his gun down to fight a dog. As for plot, humans team up with robots (or cyborgs) to fight androids (or something). Nothing makes sense, I kept yawning, my head hurt and, when it was over, I couldn't remember how or if it was resolved.
