'Nemesis: Triple Feature'
(Sue Price, Chad Stahelski, Tim Thomerson, Andrew Divoff, Nicholas Guest, et al / Blu-ray / R / 2019 / MVD Rewind)
Overview: This 'Nemesis: Triple Feature' includes the three sequels to the original movie: 'Nemesis 2: Nebula,' 'Nemesis 3: Time Lapse,' and 'Nemesis 4: Cry Of Angels.'
Blu-ray Verdict: In 'Nemesis 2: Nebula' (1995), 73 years after the events in 'Nemesis,' humans have lost the Cyborg Wars and they are now slaves to the cyborg masters.
Rebel scientists have developed a new DNA strain, which could signal the end of the cyborgs, and it is injected it into a pregnant volunteer.
When the cyborgs learn of the woman and her baby, both are listed for termination. To escape, the woman steals a cyborg ship and is transported back in time to East Africa in 1980, where the mother is killed, but the baby is saved.
It takes 20 years, but a cyborg bounty hunter named Nebula (Chad Stahelski, John Wick) eventually locates the young woman, named Alex (Sue Price), and travels back in time to terminate her.
Chock full of action, but not much in the way of suspense; but a good laugh from time to time, nonetheless! Oh, and how about plot holes so big even Sue Price could push her broad shoulders through!
Borrowing from a certain other major motion picture film of the exact same ilk, Price is really a feast for the eyes if you're into strong women.
There are subplots involving Africa's political unrest, treasure hunting, and tribal combat, but the picture is very short on brains so none of these things gets a very good treatment!
Overall, the picture is basically a drawn out fight with some chases that boils down to a "muscle babe" Vs. a large cyborg!
In 'Nemesis 3: Time Lapse' (1996), Alex finds that she has twenty half-sisters who are waiting for her to return to the year 2077.
Central Command wants Alex (Sue Price) captured alive and scanned to see if her DNA is a strong and more powerful strain than normal. But Alex may be too tough for Farnsworth (Tim Thomerson, Near Dark) to capture.
Commonly known, and agreed upon between "fans" of this series, this third installment is one of the worst movies EVER made!
The so-called "special effects" on the cars looked like something my four year-old cousin could have done (with a crayon!) and the two assistant female cyborgs were so terrible that I literally cringed every time they came on screen!
The plot left so much to be desired that it made my head spin at who wrote it, why they were allowed to make a movie of it, and why the studio agreed to make the damn movie from it in the first place!
The last one, thankfully, is 'Nemesis 4: City of Angels' (1996, aka 'Death Angel') where following an uneasy ceasefire between the humans and the cyborgs, Alex Sinclair (Sue Price) is making a living in the future working as a cybernetically-enhanced assassin for her boss Bernardo (Andrew Divoff, Wishmaster).
But when Alex accidentally targets the wrong man and kills the son of a major crime syndicate head, she finds herself on the run once again as every assassin in town comes to collect the bounty on her.
As you would imagine, 'Nemesis 4' follows in the footsteps of the previous two sequels to the original and so we get more of the adventures of female hard body / warrior Alex (played by Sue Price).
This time she is given one final assignment (kill yet another victim) before ending her career as a professional assassin. Very little happens in this extremely talky, apparently near-zero budget film, except for almost-constant nudity on the part of Price!
Something happened here. All three sequels were shot at the same time, from what I have heard, yet it took nearly four years for this installment to get released to video (back in the day).
Also, sorry, but I could swear that a male double was used for much of the full-body views of the nearly-naked Price and as much as her voice was always dubbed in (even when it should not have been necessary) she even sounds like a different voice actor was "her" voice in this last installment.
