1989. The Reagan ’80s led into the first Bush era, the Cold War’s over but its damage eternal, the drug war is raging, and Cannon Films, the B-movie grindhouse of “The Delta Force” and “Cobra” fame helmed by Israeli-American workhorses Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus, is barely recovering from bankruptcy. With $2 million lost on sets for an ill-fated “Masters of the Universe” sequel, they turned to in-house pulpster Albert Pyun to come up with a plot to salvage those sets in less than a weekend. “Cyborg” was the phoenix born from those ashes, and appropriately plays like an id-fueled fever dream put together in a brainstorm. The result is a post-apocalyptic actioner where a roundhouse-wielding drifter has to rescue a bionic scientist from the chaos-loving pirates wishing to control the cure she’s carrying for a world-ravaging plague. There’s levels to this shit: The film is both set in the ruins of society and in the ruins of another movie.

2015 semble définitivement une année Cannon. Tel un Phénix, la firme légendaire aux casseroles aussi maousses qu’INVASION USA ou MON AVENTURE AFRICAINE qui croisaient le fer de longs métrages plus prestigieux comme LOVE STREAMS, RUNAWAY TRAIN ou BARFLY, renait de ses cendres. Tout d’abord via deux documentaires : ELECTRIC BOOGALOO et THE GO-GO BOYS qui retracent le parcours torturé de ses deux maitres d’oeuvres : Menahem Golan et Yoram Globus. Mais également via la sortie en Haute Définition d’une grosse partie de leur catalogue filmique.
