Whenever a film attempts to cross too many genres and please too many people, it generally falls flat on its face. Peter Manoogian's 1986 lemon Eliminators is absolutely no exception. Set in South America, the film finds a scientist, a ninja, a fucking riverboat captain, a robot, and something called a "mandroid"—yes, mandroid—teaming up to battle an evil cyborg scientist. As a bonus, all of the crude special effects and awkwardly shot action sequences do a lot to make Eliminators appear about 10 years older than it actually is. —Joel Shanahan
