Premise: In the not too distant future the United States has become a socialist corporate state. Corporate computers tell citizens what to think, how to live, what to buy, and when to die. However all is not yet the perfect neo Marxist/Maoist paradise. There is a resistance movement.
The Story: Body guard witnesses an assassination. Body guard has shoot outs, gets chased by the bad guys, and blows things up. Bad guys send a Cyborg assassin after body guard. Body guard has more shoot outs, gets chased by more bad guys, and blows yet more things up (including the Cyborg). Bad guys send another Cyborg assassin after body guard. This continues until the viewer either stops playback, falls asleep, or their eyes weep tears of joy as they realize the end credits have begun to scroll.
Cybertracker wastes so much of it's runtime trying to look like other Cyborg movies that it comes across as soullessly derivative. Worse, the movie is just one great big ruse for "Don 'The Dragon' Wilson" to exhibit his rusty martial arts skills. Had the premise, loosely outlined as it was, of the back story and it's cultural ramifications been explored this could have been an interesting political allegory ala THE SECOND CIVIL WAR. Instead it's all throwaway dialogue used only to provide dull pauses between action scenes. Cybertracker is thus the sort of pointless timewaster that's okay to have on in the background while you're cooking or working on a essay. Otherwise this movie should be reserved for testing the will power of bad movie aficionados and interrogating terrorists.
