Sci-Fi movie where a man is enhanced by a computer?

hey all, i've been on the lookout for this kind of movie and haven't had any success. i'm looking for something where we see a normal man who has a futuristic computer inbuilt, or attached in some way. something like how the predator's have the attached shoulder cannon. i dunno, i'm just trying to illustrate a better idea of what i'm looking for. maybe something where a person goes back in time and has a futuristic AI built into him that guides him along the way?

be great if it was something serious like a terminator style movie.

i really like the idea of that car AI in 'frankenstein unbound'.

anyone have some recommendations?

thanks

You're not trying very hard then. I think your "looking out" for things consists of nothing more than coming here and asking people to google shit for you.

Re: Sci-Fi movie where a man is enhanced by a computer?

There are lots of movie like this these days...if you want to look for probably the best movies of the genre try The Matrix(they jack into it), and Ghost in the Shell, a Japanese anime that goes from action cyberpunk, to philosophical treatise. The 2.0 version includes some re-imagined animation in CGI, but I generally prefer the original 2D animation in it. Some other movies/tv with cyborgs: I, Robot(Spooner), Bicentennial Man(A reverse cyborg), Robocop, $6 Million Man, Bionic Woman, Terminator, STFC(another reverse cyborg: Dat. One of my favorites is STNG's "Nth Degree", when Barclay is linked to the Enterprise computer through advanced alien tech.

There are plenty of grade b and z movies in the genre, some of these include Laserblast, Johnny Mnemonic, Tetsuo: The Iron Man, Mandroid, The Guyver, Judge Dredd, Inframan, Cyborg, Eve of Destruction, Hardware.

ok, thanks brother, you mentioned a lot of great titles. i'm looking up the movies you mentioned right now. yeah, i really liked a lot of the films you mentioned, even the barclay episode from TNG.

the first two terminator movies are just so awesome to me. is there anything out there more along the lines of a human going back in time with more technology? maybe that's another thread altogether.

Add to those B-movies Dungeonmaster aka Ragewar where a guy fights a demon (or wizard, it's been a while) with his wrist mounted computer.

Another vote for this suggestion. The scene where he goes on a rampage wielding only a pencil after losing the school debate is right up there with the best of brutal Sci-fi action.

If you are looking for a Terminator style film, this is the one to go for.

There's 'Outlander'. Jesus plays an alien that crashes on Earth and has to help Vikings battle a monstrous creature he accidently brought with him.

Re: Sci-Fi movie where a man is enhanced by a computer?

If you like Terminator, might I suggest two classic OUTER LIMITS episodes from the sixties: "Soldier" and "Demon with a Glass Hand."

I guarantee that no one has ever said that before.

Fun fact: Scott Thompson (from Kids in the Hall) was in the film. He later described it (in character on the show as 'Buddy Cole') thus:

I'm in this new American picture 'Millennium'. It's a big budget science fiction thriller starring Cheryl Ladd. You see, one day some American thought: 'Hey, I want to make a terrible movie in Canada. Everybody else has!' I play the best friend of the time gate operator. He has one line, but he says it directly to me! The movie is full of Canadian actors with one line. It's great! It won't make a dime!
