Synopsis:
Paco Queruak (Daniel Greene) is the product of insane industrialist, Francis Turner (John Saxon). 70% android, 30% human, Paco was created to serve one purpose; to assassinate an experimental scientist who has found ecological ways around much of Turner's business. When Paco realises that the target is a good man, he's unable to fulfil his mission. With the hunter now the hunted, Turner sends an army after his once prized creation, but it's going to take more than that to stop Paco Queruak.

Let's do it, champ - Hands of Steel review by MS

Spoiler Alert
04/07/2021

Nowhere near Sergio Martino's finest, Hands of Steel is a relatively low budget italian action thriller which doesnt pick up until near the end. There are amusing scenes in the first two thirds of the movie including several surprisingly in depth arm wrestling showdowns with some psychotic truckers, but it's the final few action scenes with their bizarre setups and characters which are the most appealing and what the movie is worth watching for.

Initially it seems they paid John Saxon to sit in a room and answer the telephone but rest assured, he is in some location shots later in the movie and the rather boring central cyborg plot has a surpringly satisfying pay off. The blu-ray also includes a good in depth interview with Sergio Martino who is refreshingly candid and upfront about his works as (excellent) exploitation cinema.
