    I see that weird Rutger Hauer flick is on Amazon as well. The one where it rains a lot and he fights a sewer monster.
    Weirdly, that doesn't help narrow down the list of Rutger Hauer movies.
    I realise you're being slightly facetious, but it's Split Second.

    They made a game of the Animated Highlander, fact fans, which was one of the few games to come out on Jag CD. It's like a terrible (well, obviously) Virtua Fighter.

    Edit: well I've completely misremembered that from the one time I played it 20 years ago, it's actually like a terrible Alone in the Dark.

    Yeah I need to watch Split Second. I have kind of a fevered dream memory of a very similar film but I remember it being a much better film than the trailer suggests.

    Although it coming out when I was 11 may explain that.

    The creature's cool, in a terrible naff 90s way (he's got biomechanical shades!) but the rest is pretty awful. Hauer gruffs his way through it like a caricature of someone doing a tough guy, and Alastair Duncan whines like a very whiny whine whine.

    Speaking of 90s Hauer, I'd really like for someone to release a decent version of Salute of the Jugger. That's actually better than it has any right to be.

    Also loads of 80s classic films still hold up these days. Blade Runner, The Thing, Predator, Terminator, Aliens etc. Genuinely great films even if you didn't see them at the time.
    Aliens was going to have a childrenís cartoon too but it didnít happen.

    The action figures based on it still came out though. They were decent.

    Ha just watched the first 10 minutes of Split Second, the night club scene is brilliantly shit. It's definitely the film I remember, I can remember him being able to hear it's heartbeat. My memory has it as a gritty, well made horror. See also DeepStar Six.

    The weirdest one is Toxic Avenger (Toxic Crusaders).

    I mean, just what and why?

    Hardware is probably the cheapass proto cyberpunk film that Split Second wishes it was, and even that has to be watched nowadays with a large dollop of contextualisation.

    It doesn't help that Richard Stanley is an allegedly wife-beating dick, after taking so long to make a comeback and with a pretty good film too. Ah well, wife-beating dick is wife-beating dick.

    Yeah turning a Troma film into the next Turtles is an insane choice. Although I was a fan at the time.

    Attack of the Killer Tomatoes too

    Split Second had a weird, cult following at our school. I donít know if the local video shop got a lot of copies in or something but when I got out into the big wide world, I was quite surprised that nobody else gave a fuck about it.

    It was quite fussed over by the horror magazines at the time, so it had a fair bit of marketing push behind it. A lot of dross did in those days, ahh, happy memories.

    Hardware really had a fucking excellent soundtrack as well. The use of PiL's Order of Death is very memorable. And Iggy Pop as the radio DJ (being commented on by Lemmy the water taxi driver!).

    Split Second

    I have no idea why I've just sat through that fucking weird shit but I couldn't turn it off. Rutger Hauer plays a weary future cop who smokes a lot, drinks coffee a lot and eats some kind of chocolate confectionery a lot. On a scale of Rutger Hauer to Rutger Hauer he's very Rutger Hauer in it, though he has been more Rutger Hauer in a few other things I've seen. It's very British and kind of looks like an episode of Red Dwarf. Lots of various things happen, not many of them making any sense. You get to see a young Kim Cattrall's hooters if you're into that sort of thing. Various things continue to happen and Rutger Hauer does some more Rutger Hauering along the way. I actually laughed at some of the dialogue while the various things occurred and then they just killed the monster the end.

    7/10

    Both Hardware and Split Second were mainstays of my teenage years. The grimy 'post-apocalypse on the cheap' aesthetic had a huge influence on young me; I thought the Mark 13 in particular was incredibly cool - until it started moving, at least. And the soundtrack was indeed fucking excellent.

    I used to live for this sort of shit. It helped that I had a Carl McCoy fixation at the time, and yes, most of the film just looks like it could've been filmed in the basement of a goth club in Camden.

    We used to do the whole neph flour thing before each gig and even clubbing - surprised we made it out of that era.

    The band were renowned for their amazingly shit and amateurish music videos that incorporated heavy flour use.

    I guess they wanted to look like dusty cowboys for some reason.

    Lol you either know what the flour reference is (not the record or coke) or you are not allowed to know to save the embarrassment of all concerned 😁
