Robgen industries newest security system is "The J Series Automatic", an android model designed and programmed to protect humans from violent attacks. But one night, an Automatic named J269 discovers a Robgen executive trying to rape a female employee named Nora Rochester. While trying to stop the crime, he inadvertently kills the executive. At this point, J269 then calls Goddard Marx (his creator and a Robgen chairman) to inform him of the incident. Marx tells the android to stay there with Rochester until help arrives, but Marx is intent on sweeping the fiasco under the rug by sending mercenaries to eliminate both J269 and Rochester. Now the two are fugitives on the run from a para-military hit squad.Written by

The 2nd science fiction film in which Olivier Gruner has played a cyborg. The 1st film was "Nemesis". [Technically speaking Nemesis was a cyborg (=cybernetic organic, i.e. part human), Automatic was an android, not human at all.] See more »
Olivier Gruner is miscredited as Oliver Gruner on the box art. See more »

For a low-budget action/sci-fi film, this is a really good movie. Of course the acting is rather crappy as you'd expect from Gruener, but the action is good and so are the sci-fi elements. I have seen a few of Gruener's movies and this one is by far his best in my opinion. One thing that really impressed me in this movie were the guns that were used. They had lcd type screens on them that allowed the holder to see around corners - a few years after this movie was made the military looked into actually using a similar system on their rifles.
I highly recommend any fan of action/sci-fi movies to rent this one as it is actually better than some of the big-budget action movies these days.
