within an inch of his life -- does his best to breathe life into this formulaic sci-fi action picture. It's not enough. Though ostensibly adapted from a sci-fi novel, the picture seems cobbled together from various other (mostly better) movies, notably THE TERMINATOR, UNIVERSAL SOLDIER and

FRANKENSTEIN with healthy doses of THE SEVEN SAMURAI, SAMSON AND DELILAH and APOCALYPSE NOW thrown in for good measure. The potentially provocative issues of race and class inherent in the story of an African-American automaton (read: slave) sent by white military authorities to kill Latin

American peasants are scrupulously ignored.
