Ratings Key

= Excellent. The best the genre has to offer.
1/2 = Very Good. Perhaps not "perfect," but undoubtedly a must-see.
★★★ = Good. Accomplishes what it sets out to do and does it well.
★★1/2 = Fair. Clearly flawed and nothing spectacular, but competently made. OK entertainment.
★★ = Mediocre. Either highly uneven or by-the-numbers and uninspired.
1/2 = Bad. Very little to recommend.
= Very Bad. An absolute chore to sit through.
NO STARS! = Abysmal. Unwatchable dreck that isn't even bad-movie amusing.
SBIG = So Bad It's Good. Technically awful movies with massive entertainment value.

Steel and Lace (1990)

Directed by:
Ernest D. Farino

An attractive classical pianist (Clare Wren) is so distraught after being brutally gang raped that she decides to end it all by leaping to her death. Her brother (Bruce Davison), a scientist who used to work for NASA, decides to get revenge by reconstructing his dead sister as a killer cyborg specially equipped to teach her attackers a lesson. This film is pretty dark and depressing, but it's not bad as far as these things go, with decent effects work and acting. More review coming soon.

Score: 5 out of 10
