Pat Brereton analyzes postmodernist science fiction films in order to explore the “myth” of posthuman cyborgs and demonstrate that although these apparently transgressive postmodernist expressions can be applied to an ecological utopian discourse. Despite the fact that some contemporary theoreticians are dismissing interest in real spaces and seem to lean towards the utopian unlimited possibilities offered by cyberspace Brereton intends to search for renewed sublime mode which affirms and produces a ‘positive’ form of ecological expression. To this end he scrutinizes, among others, films such as Dark City, The Terminator and Alien Resurrection, to show how the discourse of post-human agency overlaps with ethical and ecological dialogue.
