Z14 is a cyborg, he’s a killer and he’s a collector of cuddly toys. Killing humans is wrong, he knows that. But it just feels right, somehow, almost like he was made to do it – and it pays really well. Z14 is an offbeat science fiction romp, with strong characters battling against a dangerous, if somewhat daft, alien plot. You may chuckle, you may grimace - sometimes both together.
