Omega Doom (1996)

How bad is it? It's one of Albert Pyun's better films, so pretty bad.
Should you see it? Not unless you're a fan of Pyun or Rutger Hauer.

Take the plot of "Yojimbo," place it in the world of "Terminator 2" and lower the budget to a few sets on one city block and you get this film. Rutger Hauer plays an android whose memory is wiped and who gets between two rival factions of androids seeking a cache of guns needed for when the humans arrive. The humans don't arrive. Shannon Whirry has a role and surprisingly keeps her clothes on. More existential science fiction than an action film, this is slower than most Albert Pyun films, with stupid dialogue and no real characterization. There's a bit of interesting weaponry and even an attempt at style, but it's nothing special.
