Silly B movie

Look, it's not high art, it's a silly B movie about a cyborg punching the bad guys. The effects are pretty bad, the acting is worse, and the so-called future is pretty much just the 80's with a couple of shiny tubes sticking out of things. But it has a goofy charm and any time a dude tears another dude's heart out with his bare hands you've got a good time. And don't forget John Saxon!

top quality action

What self-respecting movie director doesn't dream of making a film that is basically The 6 Million Dollar Man meets Roadhouse meets Over The Top meets Airwolf meets Terminator meets Deadly Prey meets The A-Team? Well, probably most of them. Most directors would rather make 'Leonardo DiCaprio Doing Very Serious Things And Looking Concerned'. However Mr. Sergio Martino is not most directors, because Hands Of Steel.

Hands Of Steel is a traditional story of one man's quest to get revenge on someone for something or other. It follows the classic storyline structure of a beginning (office shootout), middle (arm wrestling tournament), and end (helicopter chase), but also shifts into hyperdrive with some groundbreakingly sizzling dialogue between the main guy (forgot his name) and that woman who was also in Eaten Alive. Ice Hot baby... I could go on and on and on, but to summarise: A film so 80s you will grow a mullet while watching it. - unless you already have a mullet, in which case your mullet will give itself a hi 5.

The best arm-wrestling-cyborg-assassin-with-a-heart-of-gold film ever made!

It's impossible to hate this low-budget Italian rip-off of "The Terminator." Between the non-stop action scenes and the testosterone that permeates every frame, HANDS OF STEEL is a decidedly watchable hunk of mid '80s Eurotrash.

In a near-future when pollution has created severe health and weather issues for the American people, a cyborg assassin named Paco Queruak (rhymes with "Kerouac," oddly enough) is dispatched to kill the country's leading environmental activist. However, Paco's human side prevents him from taking the blind, wheelchair-bound old man's life. Instead, he softens the killing blow so that it merely wounds the environmentalist. Paco then goes on the run, both from the FBI and from the evil industrialist Turner (John Saxon), who hired him for the hit.

He hides out in a small, isolated town in his native Arizona. There, Paco befriends Linda (Janet Agren), a rugged blonde who owns a combination motel and eatery. Paco earns first the fear and disgust, but later the respect, of a local gang of arm-wrestling truck drivers, who he quite literally beats at their own game. When the bad guys begin to zero in on Paco, getting Linda seriously wounded, one of the truck-driving arm-wrestlers sacrifices his life to save hers.

After much fighting and killing, it's down to Paco and Turner, who is armed with a laser that Paco slaps away from him. Paco says, "Turner, you got it wrong about controlling my mind. You only own a man when you control his heart." To drive his point home, Paco reaches into Turner's chest with his cybernetic arm and pulls out the man's heart. Now it's just Paco and Linda, who has grown to care about him. But Paco is torn between his human and robotic sides. To its credit, the film ends right there, on a refreshing note of ambiguity.

OK, so Paco's car is red in its first scene but magically turns white for the rest of the film. OK, so the characters barely qualify as one-dimensional. OK, so the female cyborg sent after Paco makes fight sounds you'd have to hear to believe. OK, so the entire film has the look of an Italian backlot trying to pass itself off first as New York City, then as rural Arizona. But still and all, for what they were doing, the damned thing works! It held my interest for its full 95-minute running time. What can I say? HANDS OF STEEL is the best arm-wrestling-cyborg-assassin-with-a-heart-of-gold film ever produced.
