Check Out the Opening Sequence from Albert Pyun’s Director’s Cut of Cyborg

1 Comment

Albert Pyun is the man. Not only is he preparing to unleash the “renegade director’s cut” of his underrated sci-fi actioner “Cyborg” (aka “Slinger”) onto the masses, he’s giving fans a taste of what’s to come by posting the opening sequence onto the Interwebs. The clip you’re about to see was sourced from a VHS copy of the workprint, which explains why the quality isn’t exactly up to snuff. In addition to the different score — which is provided by Tony Riparetti and Jim Saad — all of Van Damme’s dialogue has been re-recorded by someone else. It will be strange to see a different voice pouring from the big guy’s lips, but to be perfectly honest, I can’t say that I’m really that upset about it. I’m excited to get my hands on a copy of this cut, but in the meantime, the embedded clip will have to suffice. Thanks to Twitch for the heads up on this.

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at) beyondhollywood.com.

    I’m curious.

    I saw this movie when I was about 9 years old and I thought it was a pretty damn good movie. I haven’t seen it ever since, so I guess I’ll try to get the movie before this new cut comes out.
