Cyborg 2, released in some countries as Glass Shadow, is a 1993 science fiction action film directed by Michael Schroeder. It is an unrelated sequel to the 1989 film Cyborg, although footage from the original is used in a dream sequence. It is notable as the first film to feature Angelina Jolie in a starring role (she had previously made one earlier film as a child actress). It was followed by the 1995 direct-to-video release Cyborg 3: The Recycler.

Plot

In the year 2074, cybernetics market is dominated by two rival companies: USA's Pinwheel Robotics and Japan's Kobayashi Electronics. Cyborgs are commonplace, used for anything from soldiers in the field to prostitutes in the streets.

Casella Reese (Angelina Jolie) is a top-of-the-line cyborg developed for corporate espionage and assassination and is filled with a kind of liquid explosive called Glass Shadow: Pinwheel plans to eliminate the entire Kobayashi board of directors with the aid of Casella.

Casella is programmed to mimic human senses and emotions such as fear, love, pain and hatred. Guided by the renegade prototype cyborg Mercy (Jack Palance), who can communicate through any television screen, she and combat trainer Colton Ricks (Elias Koteas) escape the Pinwheel facility so she can avoid her fate of self-destruction, one that faces most corporate espionage cyborgs, and they're relentlessly pursued by Pinwheel hired killer, master Daniel Bench (Billy Drago).
