And The Truckers Shall Inherit The Earth...

"A cyborg assassin named Paco (Daniel Green) is confused when he cannot bring himself to kill a political figure. He goes on the run, winding up at a saloon / motel, run by Linda (Janet Agren). Paco's evil creator, Francis Turner (John Saxon), sends other assassins out to find and kill him. Meanwhile, Paco falls in love (?!) w/ Linda and becomes an arm-wrestling champion! Set in some undefined "future", HOS is about as cheap and cheesey as you can possibly get! All the cars are clunky 1980s models w/ dryer duct hoses mounted on them! In fact, this "world of tomorrow" has dryer duct hoses everywhere- in the saloon, in the motel rooms, etc. There's even an early scene where a scientist attempts to save his invention that is made of... you guessed it, dryer duct hoses! Whew! Also, our future seems to be dominated by sweaty truckdrivers and prostitutes. Sort of like one gigantic truck-stop! So, if arm-wrestling and cyborgs do it for ya, look no further! There's even a female cyborg in clear plastic shorts for Paco to battle! Plus, there's a totally gratuitous strip-club scene to boot! Enjoy..."
Great Italian scifi

"Hands of Steel is an often overlooked Italian scifi movie, from director Sergio Martino, the director of the best Italian post-apocaplyse movie, "After the Fall of New York". It stars Daniel Greene (the truck driver who died from "Falcon Crest"), as a cyborg named Paco Querack. He is ordered by his superiors to kill revolutionary environmentalist Arthur Mosely, but at the last second his conscience kicks in, and Paco lets him live. Paco is now on the run from the men who created him.With great music from Claudio Simonetti (of Goblin) and featuring the last performance of Claudio Cassinelli (who died in a helicopter crash during the making of this movie), Hands of Steel is an excellent scifi film (although not quite post-apocalypse)."
This movie is NOT hands of steel

"I had order this movie and got other movie, not Hands of steel (AKA) as you can read from DVD description. So beware - if you order this, you will get "Fugitive lovers" by John Carr, and even if you ask them to resend correct title, you will get same DVD."
