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.

1.0 out of 5 stars decent special effects, but idiotic, cliched non-story August 14, 2005
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not good, but worst movie ever? Not at all. December 10, 2009
Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever (Wych Kaosayananda, 2002)

According to[...], Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever is the worst-reviewed movie of the past ten years. While I'm certainly not going to defend the movie, I have to say that, like most movies about which things like this are said, this isn't even the worst movie I've seen this week (both Bled and The Bone Snatcher were quite a bit worse than this), but "real" critics (i.e., the ones who get paid for doing this) never end up seeing stuff like that, so for them, this represents the bottom of the barrel. There are times when I envy them. Most recently, while I was watching Bled and The Bone Snatcher.

I'd try to give you some idea of a plot here, but there's really no reason. What this movie is really about is Antonio Banderas and Lucy Liu running around and blowing things up. Why this should surprise anyone is entirely beyond me, given that both of them made their names doing exactly this sort of thing, though even Desperado had a stronger storyline to it than this does. But really, if you're going to see a movie like this for plot, story, and character development, you're probably in the wrong place. This is all about things blowing up, and as far as that goes, it does deliver. Some worthwhile fight scenes offset the incredibly corny dialogue and uninspired direction, so if that's all you're looking for, this should be right up your alley. * ˝

1.0 out of 5 stars Dumb action flick fails to generate anything... March 4, 2003
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Suspend disbelief first May 25, 2004
This movie is about family values. It's about Ecks (Bandeiras) defending the family he doesn't know he has, and about Sever (Liu) defending the family she doesn't have.
Get it? No? Me neither.
Oh, and there's a deadly nano-thingie making the rounds. That has something to do with the plot, too. Uh, let's just skip the plot.
This is actually an enjoyable guns'n'fights movie. Liu does the super-spy-babe thing very well, and with less facial expression than Keanu Reeves. Come to think of it, the bad guy doesn't have much in the way of facial expressions either, mostly a big evil grin seemingly held in place with botox and superglue. Lots of things blow up, and blow up in the bad guys' faces. That part was a bit puzzling, though: after the explosions, everyone just gets up and plays again.
If you want lots of gunfire and running around, it's a pretty good movie. Still, I was glad that I had a book in hand while watching it.
