ANGELINA JOLIE CYBORG 2 MOVIE GLASS SHADOW PLOT
In the year 2074, the cybernetics market is dominated by two rival companies: USA’s Pinwheel Robotics and Japan’s Kobayashi Electronics. Androids, called “cyborgs”, are commonplace, used for anything from soldiers to prostitutes. Casella “Cash” Reese (Jolie) is a prototype cyborg developed for corporate espionage and assassination. She is filled with a liquid explosive called “Glass Shadow”. Pinwheel plans to eliminate the entire Kobayashi board of directors using Casella as a suicide bomber to precipitate a hostile takeover of the company and obtain a monopoly over the cyborg market.
Angelina Jolie is programmed to mimic human senses and emotions such as fear, love, pain and hate. Guided by Mercy , a renegade prototype cyborg who can communicate through any electronic device, she and her combat trainer Colton Ricks escape the Pinwheel facility so she can avoid self-destruction, something that most corporate espionage cyborgs face. They’re relentlessly pursued by Pinwheel’s hired killer or “wiretapper”, Daniel Bench.
Bench must also deal with a rival bounty hunter named Chen, who plans on killing Colt and reprogram Cash by having her blow up Pinwheel as a means to get even with her boss, Dunn. However, Chen and Ricks get into a fight, which results in her getting electrocuted by a fuse box.
Mercy is later revealed to be a human/cyborg hybrid who was created by Pinwheel as a means to create the next stage in human evolution, but Mercy escaped before they had a chance to erase his memory. Ricks and Bench get into a boxing match to find out who lives and who dies, namely going to the African coast, which results in Bench getting mutilated by a rotating fan, killing him. Cash and Ricks escape to a new life in Africa after winning the tournament, while Mercy confronts Dunn by blaming him for ruining his life.
Dunn tells Mercy he was just doing his job for the benefit of mankind. Mercy then activates his own self-destruct device, which kills Dunn and destroys Pinwheel headquarters. The final shot of the movie shows Cash remaining young and beautiful, while Ricks continues to age. Cash, realizing he has finally died, decides to shut herself down, forever in a permanent dream state.
ANGELINA JOLIE CYBORG 2 MOVIE GLASS SHADOW | CRITICS ON CYCBORG 2 MOVIE
Thanks to Glass Shadow, the evil powers at Pinwheel believe they now hold the combustible key to rule the world—or at least destroy their chief competitor. Ready to implement their master plan, the corporation chooses Jolie’s character, Cash Reese, as their ignorant assassin. Reese is initially unaware of the deadly fluid coursing through her cyborg veins, but when she discovers her potential fate, she turns to a human martial arts instructor for help.
Together, they make their way to a “free zone” where Glass Shadow is rendered ineffective and they live happily ever after. Like the original Cyborg film, which starred Jean-Claude Van Damme in a post-apocalyptic tale of evil gangs, The Glass Shadow was uniformly skewered by critics.
