This is an incredibly vague scene depiction, but I'm trying to recall a sci-fi movie I watched as a very young kid. It would have been out perhaps early 80s.

I don't recall any of the story but the image has stuck in my head and for years I always wanted to know what the movie was about. I recall a man (possibly a cyborg) who carried a shield, and for the scene I recalled drove/hovered around on something that resembled a segway or a one person standing hover craft. There was a lot of shooting going on. He may (may!) have had red infared vision like terminator (although I may just be getting that part mixed up with terminator :) I know if I saw the scene again, I'd sure to recognize it.

Anyway if anyone has the slightest inclination to what film this may be, I'd love to hear. Sorry there isn't much more I recall, I guess this is the last chance for me to put this to bed :)

  • Space Mutiny? That had shooting, at least. – Liesmith Dec 6 '14 at 5:53
  • Hmm 1988, it would have been sooner than that. But thanks for your suggestion. – Martyn Dec 6 '14 at 11:12

You might be thinking of The Eliminators. The timing fits, and the trailer has most everything you're describing: a guy with a shield, a cyborg on a one-person vehicle (though it's tank treads, not a hovercraft), and shooting.

    Haha, that is totally it! Completely different from how I recall it, I just remember the cyborg guy. Don't remember a ninja, and the action guy (although I vaguely recall the woman). Anyway looks terrible, can't wait to watch it :) I see the full length movie is on YouTube too. Thanks a lot! – Martyn Dec 8 '14 at 3:24

    It's cool moments like this that make me like this site. Happy to see that the mystery was solved after all these years :D – Nomkins Feb 10 '15 at 14:23
  • Wow - the movie features both Tasha Yar AND a Borg drone a year before TNG aired. I call time-travel hijinks. – Omegacron Jan 29 at 16:20
