OMG - Love this film. Been waiting for an eternity for it to come out on DVD and when it does good old HMV drop it to £5.99 whilst everyone else still requires £12.00 to £20.00 of your hard earned cash. Great sci-fi with one killer and a half of a soundtrack.

In the Twenty First Century there's a new endangered species... Man.

In a post-apocalyptic, nuclear-scarred future the world has become a radioactive, neon drenched, industrial wasteland populated by the disenfranchised and the demented. Amidst the dust and decay of a poisoned landscape a 'Zone Tripper' manages to salvage a disembodied robotic head. But what is initially mistaken for discarded techno trash is in fact the mechanical remains of the M.A.R.K 13: a merciless killing machine programmed to activate, exhilarate and exterminate. After ending up in the isolated apartment of an introverted artist, the M.A.R.K 13 re-assembles itself for an eye gouging, chainsaw wielding, body drilling, skull-crushing rampage where no flesh shall be spared.

Inspired by the 2000AD comic strip SHOK: Walter's Robo Tale and Directed by Richard Stanley (Dust Devil), Hardware features a face pounding soundtrack and appearances from twisted rock legends Iggy Pop, Motorhead's Lemmy and Fields Of The Nephilim's Carl McCoy. Available for the first time as a special edition, Hardware remains a highly original, mind melding, Cyberpunk, horror/sci-fi cult classic, so plug in, turn on, download and prepare to have your inner circuits pulled out and re-wired.

I was only talking about this film last night and saying that when i was a kid we watched it as it was from an award nominated guy and it was the worst film i'd ever seen .... Shows how different tastes can be eh !

Maybe now i'm older i'd enjoy/appreciate more ?? Who knows but i aint gonna watch it again to find out thats for sure ... Wasn't most of the film in red through like the robots eyes or something ?

Not voted on this by the way just wanted to give a different view.

Yeah; low budget film. Filmed with a red mist - through robots eye. Not gonna win and never tried to win any awards for special effects but it's such a cool film and a different take on "The Terminator" type movie.

And we all walk the wibbly wobbly walkAnd we all talk the wibbly wobbly … And we all walk the wibbly wobbly walkAnd we all talk the wibbly wobbly talkAnd we look at the girls with the wibbly wobbly eyes

Wow, hot!! I didn't realise this was even on DVD! Awesome killer robot film with a great soundtrack. Directed by Richard Stanley who also did Dust Devil. Thanks andywedge :thumbsup:

There was a german euro release on DVD which wasnt too good. This rerelease is brlliant. Bought it on bluray and it looks fantastic. Dont know what the dvd is like but if its anythng lke he bluray you wont be disapponted. I agree though this film is horses for courses.

Unreal. I converted this from VHS about two years ago, only last week did I finally process it, clean up the picture/sound etc and transfer to DVD assuming it would never be released.
What a waste of time that was! LOL.
