I am trying to recall the name of a movie (80's I think) that involved cyborgs/robots and grappling hooks?

All I can remember is a good cyborg helping people and a bad cyborg. It is not The Terminator.

Is it – Ankit Sharma Aug 28 '13 at 14:23
No sorry. I don't even know how mainstream this movie was. I just remember grappling hooks, robots/cyborgs, and like a helicopter and cave in a jungle. – user27008 Aug 28 '13 at 15:08

Could it have been Eliminators?

"I wish StackExchange would combine reps from all sites in evaluating what someone can do on a new site." - It somehow does. If your link you account to any other SE account that already has 200 rep, you automatically get 100 rep on the new site. So StackExchange does respect what you already did on other sites, you just didn't do enough yet. ;) And if you have a movie that you think to be a possible answer, answering is better than commenting anyway. Though, you might want to improve your answer to include some detatis why you think this to be the searched movie. – Napoleon Wilson Aug 29 '13 at 8:30
I think this is it. I watched the trailer and it looked familiar. Good find. – user27008 Aug 29 '13 at 14:43
@ChristianRau, Thank you. I knew about the 200 rep combined for the flair but didn't know about the initial rep, good information thank you. My oldest account is the StackOverflow and it has about 130 I think but its a month old, I wonder if I reach 200 on that, it will give me the 100 you mentioned on the other accounts HMMM let's hope so :) – GµårÐïåñ Aug 29 '13 at 17:50
@user27008, good I am glad it helped. Have fun. – GµårÐïåñ Aug 29 '13 at 17:50

You might have watched Universal Soldier (1992) starring Jean Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren:

Universal Soldier is a 1992 American science fiction action film directed by Roland Emmerich. The film stars Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren as soldiers who kill each other in Vietnam but are reanimated in a secret Army project along with a large group of other previously dead soldiers.

Ah another nice try, but Universal Soldier is too recent I think. – user27008 Aug 28 '13 at 17:00

This may also be to recent but Soldier with Kurt Russel.

I was going to add it sounded like 1982's Liquid Sky although I believe it's an alien, not a cyborg.
