Synopsis from Scream Factory:
She's beautiful, indestructible and unstoppable! Renee Soutendijk is "sexy and lethal" (Boxoffice) as Eve VIII, a sophisticated and deadly android run amok in this heart-pounding sci-fi thriller. Created in the image other inventor, Eve VIII is the flawless culmination of years of research. Or is she? When an unexpected mishap during testing sends her into a sudden, irreversible rampage, Eve begins stalking and killing anything she perceives as a threat. And now it's up to terrorism expert Jim McQuade (Gregory Hines) to find and deactivate her before she realizes her ultimate capability nuclear annihilation!
Scream Factory may be taking a chance on this one, and I'm not entirely sure why. Whether they simply had the chance to put out this movie on Blu-ray (a movie previously unreleased in the format) or whether it was part of a package deal to acquire other properties... or maybe it's that it's a damn good movie. Yes, Gregory Hines puts forth a fantastic, bad ass performance that is perfectly overacted (and Hines knows it... on a Nick Cage level). The effects are quite good, but when compared to say The Terminator some years earlier or T2 which will make its appearance shortly, well, it can't really compare can it? You'll enjoy the story line even if you see the ending coming from a mile away, and you'll enjoy the boobs because that's what horror fiends want in their early 90's action films. One liners. Nudity. Stuff blowing up... which there really isn't enough of. Overall Eve of Destruction has a solid finish, and there's a significant amount of successful tension building.
Eve of Destruction streets 11/19, but you can pre-order it now through Scream Factory.
I hope you give it a shot even if you didn't in the early 90's. It's much better than Eve 6, looks fantastic and may have you questioning your fashion sensibilities (can you pull off red leather?).
