The New Model is the 10th movie in the Cyborg/Nemesis franchise which started all the way back in 1989 with Jean Claude Van-Damme's Cyborg. 21 years after the last movie from the series was made (Nemesis 4 1996) it returns with this "delight".
You see the movies have never been been good, they've simply ranged from bad to very bad but this is certainly a new low.
Sue Price returns yet again as Alex though only briefly. I can only assume she returned for the nostalgia or must have been desperate for money.
You see here is the issue, though all the Cyborg/Nemesis movies were bad they at least looked the b-movie part whereas this is something else altogether. The New Model is a hyper low budget independent movie which truth be told I'm absolutely stunned at the quality of (Or lack thereof). Instead of professional b-movie, this is VHS camcorder, toy laser guns and dreadful Adobe Aftereffects sfx.
No really, I can't stress enough how bad it looks. It's one stage up from being done on someones phone, the acting is some of the worst I've seen in years, the sfx are cringe inducing and the whole thing is really embarrassing.
Whatever my opinions of the franchise it really didn't deserve this. Considering they started in the 80's and this was released in 2017 it raises all kind of questions why this is the ugliest and cheapest of them all.
Incredibly there is another one in production, this is a franchise that died in the 90's but nobody had the heart to tell it.
Cringe inducing acting
The fight sequences are some of the worst ever put to film
Awful filler scenes
