I'm trying to find a movie of which I saw a scene on TV years ago. The movie looked like it was from the 80s-90s.

Here are all the clues I can give you about it: On the planet there is no oxygen and it looks sort of like a desert. People go around carrying oxygen tubes and nasal cannulae.

There is this one scene when we see one of the main characters walking into a bar. The bar is pressurized and has oxygen, so people don't need anything to breath in there.

The guy challenges some folks there to a game of pool, and we see him cannon most of the balls in different holes with perfect precision. That's when the others realize that he's a cyborg (or an android or whatever). So they get mad and throw him in a hatch where they take the oxygen away for a minute or so, so he can't breathe.

That's all I recall from the movie.

So, to recap:

  • No oxygen in the surface of the planet
  • I remember a truck with little plants on it, made to create oxygen
  • People go around with oxygen tanks
  • There's a bar
  • There's a hatch in the bar
  • People don't like cyborgs or androids for some reason

Please help! It's been years that I tried to track this movie with no success! Thanks everyone!!


It is Circuitry Man from 1990. The scene you describe with pool table, bar fight, and the ride in a semi full of plants happens about midway through.
