Killer Surveillance Cameras! Yep, that's the gist of it. Longer term ScreenAnarchy readers may remember Richard Clabaugh's indie sci-fi pic Eyeborgs
from as far back as 2007. Well, after a brief trip to Sci-Fi London in 2010, his surveillance robot action-thriller finally makes it to DVD in the UK this month.
As you may have picked up from the truly wonderful title, Eyeborgs
is resolutely B-movie territory and appears to be all the better for it. "In the wake of another devastating
terrorist attack, the United States government passes the "Freedom of
Observation Act, a law requiring all communications and surveillance
cameras to be constantly monitored for national security. Helping to
enforce the new law are the Eyeborgs, mobile surveillance robots that
can track suspicious persons wherever they may try to hide. Now everyone
is under the constant watch of ODIN, the Optical Defence Intelligence
Network, an all-seeing system that never sleeps, never rests and never
stops "looking out for you." But what few people realize is the Eyeborgs
are authorized to do more than just watch. If an Eyeborg witnesses a
crime in progress when no other law enforcement agent is present, it can
take whatever action is necessary to stop it.
Investigating a series of suspicious deaths, Homeland Security agent
R.J. "Gunner" Reynolds (Paul) finds a link to the Eyeborgs and is led to
believe that terrorists have taken over the system and are using the
'bots in a plot to assassinate the President of the USA. What he doesn't
realize is the truth behind the killings is far more terrifying than
any mere act of terrorism."You can check out the trailer below. It puts me in mind of Screamers (yes, the Peter Weller one...) albeit with
tongue a little more firmly in cheek, but that's no bad thing in my book.
Plus you get Danny Trejo. Which is ALWAYS a good thing.
