After my recent foray into the cinematic world of filmmaker Albert Pyun, I knew I had to get my hands on more. Luckily for me, it didn’t take too long for me to acquire a newly remastered copy of Nemesis 2: Nebula.
More than 70 years after LAPD officer Alex Rain failed to stop renegade cyborgs, humans have become enslaved. Scientists have developed a new DNA strain that can help in ending the Cyborg Wars for good and inject it into a host baby. Scared for the baby’s life, her mother steals a cyborg ship and takes the baby back in time to 1980 East Africa.
It took 20 years, but bounty hunter Nebula has finally found the now grown child and must put an end to her before she does the same to the cyborg race.
It seems as though my excitement for more Pyun-directed cyborg and human warfare was very much validated. Nemesis 2: Nebula is just as fun as the first and is a solid installment in what would become a franchise of sci-fi action thrillers.
Replacing French actor and martial artist, Olivier Gruner, from the first film is Sue Price. Sue’s incredibly muscular physique automatically makes her a shoe in for this type of role. While her dialogue delivery isn’t the most impressive, her overall performance can still be considered a couple of notches above Gruner’s.
Not your typical female lead, this blonde braid sporting bodybuilder is beyond badass in the more action heavy scenes. She is seen sporting her double pistols, doing insane flips, and kicking cyborg butt.
Nemesis 2 may not feature a cast that is quite as memorable as its predecessor, but everything else that makes that film so much fun is certainly present in abundance.
A digitally scrambled cyborg (played by Chad Stahelski, stuntman turned John Wick director) is hunting a hybrid warrior human. When he finally finds her, he destroys anything and anyone who gets in his way. What else could you ask for?
Scantily clad women, explosions, and mid-90’s campy action run amuck in Albert Pyun’s 1995 sci-fi sequel, Nemesis 2: Nebula.
If you were a fan of the first film and never got a chance to check out any of the sequels, now is the time. MVD has recently released a Blu-ray triple feature which includes all three sequels in the 90’s action franchise.
The new home release, part of the MVD Rewind Collection, looks and sounds amazing, and is most likely the best fans will ever get. Be sure to pick up your copy today because you don’t want to miss out on this fun cheesy time!
I personally cannot wait to jump into parts 3 and 4 and see how Pyun continues to grow this universe that he has created thus far.
I give Nemesis 2 4 laser pointer blades out of 5.
