Movies that were wrong about the future 1

Directed and written by Albert Pyun, Heatseeker imagines a version of the year 2019, where cyborg kickboxing is the most popular sport. In the movie, kickboxing champion Chance O’Brien (Keith Cooke) is forced to fight cyborgs in a tournament after the cybernetics company behind the competition kidnaps his fiancée.

While cyborgs are commonplace in sci-fi fiction, the real world has yet to see a fully functioning one. And though cyborg technology continues to advance at a rapid pace, it seems that we’re is still several years away from developing a cyborg that can do a stand-up combat sport like kickboxing.
