Pulling something from my Oriental Cauldron, I bring up a spicy little film called 'Futurekick.' Just as you once riffed 'Fist of Fury,' with Bruce Lee, this come from a series of action films by Don 'The Dragon' Wilson, who was famous for kickboxing.
1) One of the funnier 'Terminator/Total Recall' knockoffs: As the RiffTrax crew knows, throughout the 80s and 90s, whenever there was a box-office hit, the direct-to-video market would get flooded with these bad knock-offs. In this case, because Jean-Claude Van Damme did it with 'Cyborg,' (and I don't mean the DC Comics' Teen Titans member) apparently Don thought he could do it as well, with this futuristic tale that mashes up the Terminator and Total Recall, heck, even the box art cover has Don wearing dark-glasses and leather jacket. Which was what lured many renters, as myself, in giving this a view. But as we've learned, some things you watch, you regrettably can't unwatch.. and this is one of them. But in all fairness, it doesn't tease you like 'Cyborg Cop 2' did..
2) The bizarre plot: Sometime in the future, a woman's husband is murdered and somehow she gets pursued by black-market organ harvesters, since despite cybernetic technology improving bodies, living organs are somehow invaluable. Don 'The Dragon' Wilson plays an actual cyborg (yay, Bill! yay,Kevin!) who crosses paths with her to protect her. Turns out, the corporation her husband was working for had perfected a new process for regenerating tissue (or some revolutionary process, I forget which) which would be bad for the organ harvesting business, thus was murdered. For some reason, they couldn't find the actual process, suspecting the wife might know something about it, but decides they want to kill her off anyway. (Like I said, these made-for-video films weren't really known for their logical plots, and Mike, be prepared for people doing stupid things here, that normal people would not do in real life. Such as people trying to attack Don ineffectively, though he's supposed to be a kickboxing cyborg, imagine.)
3) The twist ending... unlike my past contributions, here I'll just let the crew watch this film for it, but when you find out, you'll be going, 'OKAY, WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT ALL ABOUT?'
All in all, Futurekick wasn't such a bad film, but more along the lines of the better knockoffs in the fact they attempt to make the effort of making it an action-adventure film. This is one which would definitely be fun to riff since it was hilarious on how they attempt to emulate two different sci-fi genres and hybrid it into this odd feature.
And besides, it has Don 'The Dragon' Wilson in it, rather than some ineffectual hero who just repeatedly crack a whip.
