We gave it a D

Fans of the first three Trancers flicks will probably be disappointed by Trancers 4, in which trenchcoated sci-fi detective Jack Deth (once again played by the stolid Tim Thomerson) goes way back in time to battle the requisite zombielike soul vampires of the title. In lieu of cheesy special effects (well, this does have a few), we now get a lot of stale pseudo-medieval hooey, courtesy of characters with names conveniently plucked from Shakespeare’s The Tempest. Astonishingly enough, this dreadful bore seems to promise yet another sequel at its wrap-up.
