The role of "Chen" was originally written for a man. After Karen Sheperd successfully gained a chance to audition for the role, the producers changed the part to a woman and Karen won the role. See more »
The film is set late in the twenty first century (2074?); but towards the end, in Mercy's junk / ship yard hidey hole, A. Jolie goes to make a phone call in a phone booth with a clearly displayed rotary wheel dial. See more »

There are 3 different kinds of B-movies. Most of them are just bad. Horribly, painfully bad. Some are just the right kind of bad to be fun to watch. And a select few are surprisingly well done.
Cyborg 2, like the original, falls into the third category. Yes, it has uneven fight scenes and some terrible dialogue, but it also has involving moments. You probably wouldn't want to pay a lot of money to see it, but it's good to watch on TV, especially late at night.
And of course, it feature Angelina Jolie in her debut performance, not counting Looking to Get Out. She does very well with the sometimes spare material, as does Elias Koteas. Both of them always manage good performances with even the worst scripts, and this script is actually decent.
Non B-movie fans should avoid this, but the rest, and I know you're out there, might actually like it.
