Unfortunately, as much as I researched I could not find a copy of Cyclops with anything other than auto-generated subtitles. But there’s droll enjoyment in the combination of bizarre gore and bad translation, like when the words ‘Baby recommended’ appear as the cyclops uses his third, bloodier arm to choke a man to death. In any case, I don’t know that I would understand the madness any more if the subtitles were accurate, or even if I spoke fluent Japanese.
Most of the budget is saved for the last ten minutes, a fountain of gore and pulsing organic masses which often resemble the assimilation sequences Rob Bottin designed for The Thing. That’s not to say the preceding 40 minutes aren’t interesting: the compositions have an angular charm, the editing is frenzied but effective, and the soundtrack thuds appropriately with industrial ambience and heavy synth riffs. Director George Iida already demonstrates a talent in Cyclops that is far in excess of its primitive production, and after producing a minor cult hit, Battle Heater, Iida would go on to helm the Ringu sequel in 1998." - Some Other Dude On Letterboxd
