released OUT NOW! 1987 | 15 | Blu-ray
A heavy-handed, but entertaining, ’80s satire. It’s 2017 and Sam Treadwell’s (David Andrews) sexbot is broken. He enlists a tracker (Melanie Griffith) to help find a replacement in a danger zone.
The ultra-sexualised future is well-realised, but the third-act shift into action is more generic and less effective, despite Tim Thomerson (as the villain) sneering and snarling his way through the script.
Extras Director’s commentary; a recent interview with Thomerson; a period Making Of; trailers. Will Salmon
