Cyborg Cop (1993)

Jack's brother Philip has good news. Philip's  adoption of little orphan Frankie has been approved and the kid will be all his once Philip gets back from his top secret DEA mission in the Caribbean.  In other words, Philip is doomed.

When Philip doesn't return, Jack grabs his black leather fanny pack (which he wears everywhere he goes) and heads down to the Caribbean to find his brother.  While investigating he literally runs into Cathy, a newspaper reporter looking for a story.  They hate each other at first sight so it's obvious that they're going to get stuck working together and fall in love.

What Jack doesn't know is that local scientist Kessel has a secret cyborg project and Philip is now part of his cyborg army.  Well that ought to cause some emotional issues when Jack winds up trading blows with the evil cyborgs under Kessel's command.

This is a pretty silly movie.  Jack always wears a black leather fanny pack, has lots of opportunity to spout his catchphrase "I got a bad feeling about this" and is a big idiot.  Philip sent Jack some evidence prior to his disappearance, which turned out to be heroin. Jack brought it with him because it's his only clue to finding out what happened to Philip.  Yes, it's always a good idea to take illicit drugs with you when traveling.  Also there is an Achilles heel for the cyborgs, because if not, how the heck would anyone defeat them?
