CHERRY 2000

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Reviews -

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

The bed sales­man had lied and lied.
