List Rules Only movies with cyborgs, human\robot hybrids. Sorry, these are not the droids you are looking for.

The greatest '80s cyborg movies like The Terminator are the most well-known, but there have been movies about cyborgs for a long time. The premise of a half-human/half-robot offers a lot of storytelling possibilities in a variety of genres. Films with cyborgs can be action flicks, comedies, or dramas that use the technologically-enhanced beings as a metaphor for all mankind. It takes a lot of talent to pull one of these roles off, as Arnold Schwarzenegger or Alita: Battle Angel's Rosa Salazar will tell you. 

Here's your chance to vote up the best cyborg movies. If you think there's something missing, go ahead and add it to this list of top cyborg films. Check back later on to see how your addition is faring with other users!
