    Hands of Steel

    ★★

    This film should be much more fun than it is. It's a cheap Terminator clone with a thin plot and some ridiculous scenarios. I very much enjoyed the high points, like the ridiculous focus on arm-wrestling early on, the sublimely terrible "I am a perfect cyborg!" scene and the fact that George Eastman shows up and overacts in amusing fashion.

Steven Yeun was likeable but I knew that from watching more Walking Dead than I care to admit, and it's not at all surprising that he could carry a role. His sidekick was pretty likeable too, as was the general tone, direction and plot, but there just wasn't enough insanity going on here.

    It's impossible not to compare it to Belko Experiment and it feels like both had the problem of…
