This 1985 sci-fi film directed by prolific B-movie vet Charles Band is a clever riff on the Terminator story. Tim Thomerson stars as a 23rd century cop named Jack Deth who returns to '80s-era L.A. to hunt down a futuristic, mind-controlling cult leader who's trying to off the ancestors of all his enemies. Our hero teams up with a young punk rock chick (Helen Hunt in a very early role) and goes hunting for bad guy. Witty dialogue, a solid cast and effective use of the obviously low budget make this a cult classic (which inspired five sequels). 76 minutes PG-13.
