Customer Reviews

Have you ever wanted to watch a really really bad movie?
Joshua E. Hunsaker
The dialogue is forced, action scenes are thrown in from time to time to liven things up and the plot is weak at best.
K. M. Chance
There's one scene in the film where about 50 of the bad guys' elite assassins go after the heroes in a freight yard.

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.

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.

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.

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.
