"Eyeborgs" opens London Int'l SciFi Film Festival to sold out theatres
Standing ovation acknowledges opening night stars and filmmakers of the near future science fiction movie, "Eyeborgs"
Apr 30, 2009 – London, UK - (4/30/09) - A standing ovation by a sold out audience is one of the greatest acknowledgements a filmmaker may ask for and that is exactly what producer John S. Rushton, director/writer Richard Clabaugh, editor/writer Fran Clabaugh and stars Adrian Paul ("Highlander"), Megan Blake ("Taledega Nights") and Luke Eberl ("Planet of the Apes") of the widely anticipated near-future, policital conspriacy thriller EYEBORGS received as they opened the London International Science Fiction Film Festival!
EYEBORGS, in the words of Ben Austwick of QuietEarth.com, is a "sci-fi... that tackles government surveillance, War on Terror paranoia and good old-fashioned technofear head-on. In a future USA where terrorist atrocities have ushered in autonomous, roaming surveillance robots with police powers - the titular eyeborgs - the President's unassuming rock singer nephew finds himself at the centre of a conspiracy that hinges on the evidence of the camera vs that of the human eye."
Austwick goes on to say that EYEBORGS displays, "...superb action sequences the likes of which I haven't seen in a long time. They really are spectacular... Somehow the CGI is more realistic and effective than mega-budget Hollywood spectaculars like Transformers, and the editing is better by an order of magnitude, consistently coherent and punchy. There's no flab in these scenes - though they do leave you crying out for more.
The central theme of surveillance is tackled imaginatively, and while at first the story seems to linearly explore our doubts about government power it ends up taking us in a different and unexpected direction. This multi-layered film making reminded me of Verhoeven in his Robocop heyday".
