The Head in constant search of a robot body that he can stay attached to in this futuristic movie that features Rutger Hauer as Omega Doom, a robot who survived a global nuclear war. The movie is set in Old World Europe where the humans and robots fought each other until they destroyed much of the Earth. Omega Doom wanders into a town, where amongst the rubble and bombed out buildings, he finds two warring factions, the Roms and the Droids. They hate each other with an intensity yet they aren't fighting. Omega Doom comes upon The Head who asks if he isn't curious about that, all while he is getting kicked around like a soccer ball by Marko, a hate-filled Droid who was the one that cut off his head so he could use hisrobotbodyforparts.

The Bartender as played by Anna Katarina
Blackheart and her team, including Ironface. Blackheart was played by Pyun regular Tina Cote.
Norbert does a great job at the physical comedy associated with this character. As he connects his head with his new circuits, he has a few twitches and convulsions here and there. He and Omega Doom talk about the Roms and Droids, and the various inhabitants of the town such as:
Shannon Whirry as Zed, Earl White as Metalface and Jahi Zuri as Marko
The Head is learning to control his new body, not without a great deal of effort and some stumbles along the way. Then Marko comes along and decapitates him again and amuses himself by bashing The Head against a wall. The Head's next body has legs that don't function, so he spends some time either crawling around or tying wooden splints to them to support himself.
After Blackheart is killed, peace comes to the town. Most of all, The Head is pleased with his newest body -- that of the curvacious Blackheart. The Bartender seems to approve. He vows to take better care of it than she did and touseittodogoodintheworld...... after he learns to walk in it, that is. Maybe his center of gravity is off because he is so top heavy? :-)
