NEMESIS 2: NEBULA
Nemesis 2: Nebula was the first of three sequels to Nemesis (the first two of which were shot back-to-back). None of these sequels have anything to do with the first Nemesis other than featuring the common theme of androids/cyborgs trying to take over society. Nemesis 2 slips more into being a copy of The Terminator (1984) with a killer android coming back through time to pursue a heroine, although the look of the killer cyborg takes the sequel far closer in spirit to Predator (1987). There is no more plot to Nemesis 2 than that the entirety of the film exists as a single action sequence without pause. There are times that one wishes there had been a little more in the way of plot like explaining more about what the two girls are doing and what is the significance of the gold coins they are hiding.
That said, Albert Pyun makes a competent action film out of Nemesis 2. The film moves with pace and the Arizona locations (standing in for East Africa) are impressively photographed. Some of the stunts Pyun stages are breathtaking like one where heroine Sue Price leaps from a building at the same time as shooting at a flaming cyborg falling alongside her and holding a corpse as a shield from its return fire. Sue Price is the another of Pyuns would-be discoveries that he has taken from a kickboxing/body-building background following the likes of Olivier Gruner, Kathy Long, Keith Cooke and Jean-Claude Van Damme. (Price had competed in various national US bodybuilding championships throughout the 1990s before being recruited by Pyun, although failed to go onto any other acting roles outside of the Nemesis films). All of the aforementioned look impressively lithe and can throw a backkick with the same lissom grace that a dancer can pirouette and cannot act worth a damn. Certainly, Sue Price has an asexuality and a body-builders muscularity that looks convincingly super-human, and with golden-bronze skin, blonde dreadlocks and cool blue eyes, is visually striking.
