Nemesis 2: Nebula (1995)

aka Cyborg Terminator 2

How bad is it? Cheap imitative exploitation action film. Not terrible.
Should you see it? Sure, but not because it's so-bad-it's-good.

Full disclosure: I've met the lead actress of this film and am a little biased.

This Albert Pyun film has nothing to do with the original "Nemesis" (which is a pretty good flick), but is an obvious rip-off of "The Terminator" and "Predator." A child with "perfected" DNA is the last hope against cyborgs, so the mother and child are sent back to the past of 1980 in East Africa (the film was shot in Arizona). The mother gets killed and the child grows up to be bodybuilder Sue Price, who does a credible job - but can't deliver a line for shit; there isn't a word of English dialogue until the middle of the film! The film's well-shot and is worth seeing for its improbable stunts: firing weapons during backflips, people falling out of windows while firing weapons at each other and using each other as shields, and so on. There's almost no plot, characters or logic... and that's just fine.
