Cyborg ★★★★

The Black and White Director's Cut* turn a goofy 80's post apocalyptic yarn into a somber samurai epic with a doom drone score and a protagonist weighed down by the innocent lives he's failed. Its got tons of faults not present in the theatrical - its way to talky at times, has a climax where Fender screams like a lion for five minutes and drops some weird 90's club music cues, but its overall feel is sobering.

The Director's Cut is available from Germany on Blu-Ray. It uses an HQ master of CYBORG and inter cuts it with the work print footage. I switched it to Black and White (as Pyun said he always intended) by using the effects panel in VLC. It makes all the difference.
