Editorial Reviews

This is a story of two spies, who are lifelong adversaries, engaged in a cat-and-mouse hunt. Jonathan Ecks (Banderas) is an FBI agent hunting the other, Sever (Liu) a rogue NSA agent. What they learn, however, while trying to kill each other... is that they might be on the same side, and faced with a threat greater to each other than themselves.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great Action, What Happened To The Story September 21, 2002
By A Customer
Let me just start off by saying, This movie isn't awful. I have seen and met lots of people that hated it, but I thought it was an excellent attempt by Kaos to make a great American action movie. The reason this movie really suffers is its length, it is so short, they don't give you a lot of time to meet the characters or to unfold the story. The story of this movie is about a microassassin injected into the skin. This plot has a lot of loop holes, but with the right planning they could make them unnoticable they thought. I am a big fan of Lucy Liu and Antonio Banderas, and they are very good together in this movie. Antonio Banderas is great as the troubled CIA officer who was on the mission to find his wife. Lucy Liu plays a trained assassin out to avenge her family's death. Lucy Liu plays a lot tougher of a role than Banderas, with many more action scenes. Gant and his crew are acceptable as bad guys. The title of this movie is very misleading, though, which also made me unhappy with this. I expected this movie to be about Antonio Banderas squaring off against Lucy Liu. The title shouldn't really be Ecks Vs. Sever, it should be Ecks And Sever Vs. The Bad Guys, which I didn't find as entertaining. I truly believe, if they would have made this movie longer and put a little more thought into the story and action sequences, this could have been a winner. Unfortunately it became just another Hollywood action movie designed to show how much stuff they can blow up.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dumb action flick fails to generate anything... March 4, 2003
Format:DVD
Don't get me wrong, I'm all for abandoning plot for action, but on at least one of two conditions: it must be good action OR it must be a Van Damme movie. "Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever" is neither. As a matter of fact, it's not even up there with your average Steven Seagal flick. It has no real plot, just plot elements with one-dimensional characters reciting weak dialogue and getting into long, repetitive gunfights. I'm a die-hard fan of dumb action movies, but even this is too void for my tastes. The cast, while consisting of a few admirable talents, can't seem to keep the movie flowing and the action is trite and devoid of originality. As far as the movie scene goes, "Ballistic" is pure fluff. Mindless and without any direction, it is dead on the screen before the title even flashes.

1.0 out of 5 stars decent special effects, but idiotic, cliched non-story August 14, 2005
Format:DVD
I can't believe that only two years after the big hit, Charlie's Angels, Lucy Liu appeared in this made-in-Canada cheapie.

The story is nonsensical and confusing. The DVD's description says Liu is an NSA agent, but she's with the DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency), sort of.

I say "sort of," because the movie's DIA is not the US Pentagon's DIA, but apparently some "shadow government" in Canada that hires Chinese orphans (girls abandoned by their parents in China due to China's "one child" policy), to be ruthless assassins. The characters in the movie talk of a "shadow goverment" and the film is set in Canada, with Canadian cops chasing people, so I guess they mean a Canadian "shadow government."

However, this "shadow government" is legitamate. We know this, because they get cooperation from the police in trying to kill rogue assassin Lucy Liu. Only, this "shadow government" is also evil and illegitamite, because some FBI people, linked to the Canadian police or DIA or whoever, force ex-FBI agent Antonio Banderas out of retirement to find a child that Lucy Liu kidnapped.

Confusing, no?

In the Special Features, the director says, "In my research, I found that there really is a DIA." Clearly, neither he nor the writer have a clue as to what the DIA is. It's a branch of the Pentagon primarily concerned with military intelligence.

Lucy Liu's assassin dresses in Lara Croft fashion, walking the streets of Vancouver in spandex and a cape. In the Special Feature, Liu says she was intrigued that the assassin was a woman, because it added "a whole other dimension" to the role.

What other dimension? The screen has been full of ass-kicking lady spies since The Avenger's Emma Peel, yet people still talk as if it's a new thing.

4.0 out of 5 stars seattleshooter November 29, 2002

Well first you have to ask your self what is the reason you watch movies. And if you answer to be entertained, well this is the movie for you, what it lacks in a solid plot it makes up for in action. I myself love action movies. So if you want to see a lot of kicking ...and explosions check it out. Antonio Banderas and Lucy Lui both do a great job, but I enjoy the work of both actors. Having said that, check it out I don't think you'll be disappointed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bang, Bang, and ... Where Is the Story? October 24, 2003
Format:DVD
"Ballistic -- Ecks vs. Sever," the most unappealing title of recent years, has still an appealing element in Lucy Liu; many people might want to see her give a kick or two to bad guys. Well, you can see some good action scenes (though heavily edited) in which she shows some good martial arts stunts. It is a sad thing, however, that
A) you have no reasonable story.
B) you don't get in fact many actions from Ms. Liu.
C) and you see the worst performance from Antonio Banderas in his career.
Sorry to say that, but it's true. Banderas plays an ex FBI agent Ecks, whom you first find drunk, as usual, and who had a wife and kid in the past ... as usual. And Lucy Liu is some secret agent Sever who was trained for special mission or something, as you know, and she now works alone ... well, as you know. Anyway, Sever kidnaps a boy of the boss of some government organization DIA (Greg Henry), and the event, which should have been made with much exciting shots, is followed by many, many gunshots and explosions in Vancouver.
The film looks like a bad Hong-Kong actioner, in which no coherent story is given. There are several surprisingly memorable shots, but they are not many, and most of all, it is painful to watch that these two leading stars, especially Banderas who seems exhaused, (and ill-used Ray Park, "Episode I" and "X-Men") look very tired and uninterested. Even a kidnapped boy looks tired too, as if he wants to go home, home of his own.
I heard the director Wych Kaosayananda, born in Thailand, made a hit there with his previous film "Fah," which led to this English-speaking film. I don't know, but the film must have shown some promising thing in it. And I admit some stunts are good in his second film. But they are all mixed up with incredibly incoherent story, which is very irritating.
