It's somewhen in the future, and humankind has been overrun by mutants. New Winnepeg is the last safe haven for humans, but mutantkind is trying to intrude even that city. There's a cop though, Jimmy (Tyhr Trubiak), who has killed off more mutants than the rest of the force combined, and he might just as well be our last hope. The job though has made Jimmy a hardened up man who can't properly express feelings anymore other than through violence - much to the despair of the secretary (Veronica Ternopolski) of his precinct, who's secretly in love with him. Eventually, the Mayor (Stephen Washen) sends Jimmy out into the wastelands where a nest of mutants has been detected. With a few rookie cops he travels there and snuffs out the mutants, even if it costs all his rookies' lives - to return to town to find out that the Mayor has in the meantime sold out to the Friar (Tyler Glennon), leader of the mutants, and let the mutants overrun the city - and Jimmy's the only guy who can set things right - but at what cost?


Now Cybernetic Showdown is not a film that goes for subtlety, it's basically an old school macho movie where the hero's tougher as the rest, and demonstrates that at pretty much every corner, preferably through acts of violence. And Cybernetic Showdown is also very unapologetic about it, but what's the film's saving grace is that it doesn't take itself too seriously, Jimmy's tough guy routine is played to such an extent that it makes one chuckle, the situations he stumbles into are all formulaic to the hilt, but knowingly so and with a wink to the audience, and the violence is uniformly so over-the-top that it invites laughs. And the whole thing is just good genre fun to watch, really!
