The Globe Theatre

A half-man, half-cyborg hero seeks the source of his mysterious origins while fighting to reclaim the planet from an infernal tyrant hell bent on destroying humanity. Years ago, a brave human soldier perished in the first war against Hell. Decades later he reawakens in a powerful new body of steel. But the forces of darkness have also reawakened, and now the nefarious Count Draculon is determined to snuff out all light in the universe. With an Australian renegade, a blade-wielding beauty, and a true martial arts master by his side, however, Manborg prepares to show Count Draculon that the human race isn't about to go down without a fight. Genre film collective Astron-6 fuses anime-inspired scenes with practical SFX and stop-motion animation, creating a sci-fi epic that harkens back to the direct-to-video boom of the 1980s. “Nearly perfect… Kostanski manages just the right mix of ridicule and drama that we care about the plot even as we laugh at it.” – Chris Knight, The National Post
