    I don’t have as much against Albert Pyun as some people on the web but I think he severely underestimates the popularity of Van Damme. It’s probably not a stretch to say that 90% of the people who actually like “Cyborg” like it because of Van Damme. The fact that Pyun dubbed over Van Damme’s voice in his director’s cut of the original and is now making a sequel without him tells me that Pyun just doesn’t get it.

    Omg that casting is horrible.another turd in the making.cyborg 2 had a young,hot angelina Jolie.I also think she showed boobies

    • Don’t be knockin’ Olivier Gruner… that guy was pretty badass in ANGEL TOWN. That movie was COLORS meets KICKBOXER! And say what you want to say about Michael Pare… one of the coolest guys of asian cinema (until he opens his mouth)

  3. I don’t know man… Pyun also has that movie Nemesis, which totally shows that Pyun doesn’t need Van Damme. Some people are still calling Nemesis the greatest sci fi flick of all time. Now that I think of it, maybe Pyun should just make a Nemesis sequel… after all, seems to have Olivier Gruner in the Pyun of his hands!

    Cyborg without Van Damme is a big mistake! This will be the shitty sequel to the cult classic type deal.

  5. NegativeCreep says:

    I was not impressed with Mr Pyun’s sloppy director’s cut. I can’t believe he even had the nerve to release it in such raw format. I did not like the changes he made with the voice add dubs and soundtrack film score changes. Cyborg is definitely a B-movie and it barely hangs in there with the tests of time. I will watch the prequel but my thoughts of a Van Dammeless Cyborg sequel sinks my enthusiasm like the PG13 rating did for the Expendables 2 film.

    You know I like Albert Pyun, I talked with him and he was very open minded and friendly guy. I like Cyborg, I hope Pyun can make a great sequel, but from the looks of the teaser it looks horrid. Just look at the trailer when the gun starts shooting, it looks like a Nintendo video game. PS3 can make better graphics than what they used in the teaser. I do like how they use the original theme music from the first one. The teaser did absolutely nothing for me at all, and the first Cyborg looks years ahead of this video game looking movie.. “Cheesy” teaser It’s a shame they couldn’t get Van Damme, but Michael Pare is cool. Wasn’t Kevin Sorbo supposed to be in this? Also, how are they going to make it a Sci Fi Expendables At least get all the B-movie martial arts actors together or something cool like that!

    That was as bad as an Uwe Boll movie.no wonder this guy never made it big

  8. American Ninja Man says:

    Wow does that movie look awful. The CGI is embarrassingly bad, The cast doesn’t mention Olivier Gruner, Sasha Mitchell (Who starred in Pyun’s best movies, Kickboxer 2 and 4 and Nemesis) and Michael Pare. It’s just like a SyFy original clunker, in other words I’ll probably rent it if I stumble upon it. But seriously this is gonna be B-A-D.

  9. Tien Kwon says:

    Van Damme-less? ROFL. Omg Sasha Mitchell??? So he was Van Damme’s brother in the Kickboxer series… and now he’s gonna be in Van Damme’s Cyborg…. Umm does Sasha need to be in Van Damme’s shadow in order to make a movie or something?

  10. I have a feeling this is just test footage or something. There’s no way in hell this can be real.
