Hands of Steel, Unleashed from the fertile mind of fabulously inventive Italian genre movie master Sergio Martino comes one of his most durable action classics with the quite literally steely-eyed super-cyborg assassin Paco Queruak (Daniel Green) tasked by the altogether malign CEO Francis Turner (John Saxon) to eliminate blind, ecologically astute scientist and pseudo-messiah Rev.
Hands of Steel, Arthur Mosely (Franco Fantasia) the morally righteous peoples champion who poses an increasingly serious threat to Turner’s morally destitute business machinations. The despicable despot Turner’s insidiously murderous plan goes awry when the increasingly querulous Queruak rebels against his deeply entrenched core programming and then becomes quite understandably smitten by the exquisitely beautiful diner owner Linda (Janet Agren) who takes an equally plausible shine to the manfully muscular mandroid.
In the no less Iron-fisted grip of versatile writer/director Sergio Martino what could have been yet another robotically routine, low budget, tin-foil hatted Terminator clone is in actuality a super-adrenalized, Hands of Steel, hysterically high wattage, Bionically bicep bulging, B-Movie classic with bellicose bouts of sinew slashing arm wrestling, wickedly wall-crashing Cyborg-on-Cyborg action, high velocity, mother truckingly explosive vehicular calamity and barnstorming ballistic overkill! Martino’s ‘Hands of Steel’ deliriously delivers a knock-out punch of skull-fracturing action, hard-boiled romance and calamitous Cyborg carnage, all set to the electrifying beat of a fuse-poppingly funky score by music maestro Claudio Simonetti! Sergio Martino’s heroically head-smashing ‘Hands of Steel’ is a fiendishly gripping, gallopingly glorious, anatomically advanced, Gung ho, gun-crazy action epic that is hardwired to thrill!
