American Cyborg: Steel Warrior. Boaz Davidson, dir., co-script. USA: Global Pictures (prod.), 1993.

Peter Gervei summarizes plot on IMDb, "After the nuclear war people are sterile and ruled by the artifical intelligences they created in this violent world. The only woman who was able to give life to a child has to take the child through the dangerous city to the ship to save it. She is followed by an immortal killer robot through all the dangers, and only one guy tries to help her survive and protect her from the killing machine." In a Washington Post rev., 10 Jan. 1994, Richard Harrington mentions an artificial womb, and suggests that the film might be useful as a compendium of post-apocalypse clichés (he did not intend that as a compliment); Harrington refers to only "machines" and machine-takeover, not AI.
