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.

When I first saw this film, I kind of said "eh!", but then I thought about it. The plot is straightforward, but believable. Antonio Banderas puts in a really good performance, as does Talisa Soto. (Lucy Liu, after the film wrapped, said that she stood where the director told her to.) I'd classify it as a chick flick,but I could be wrong.

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.

Even though the above title summarizes this film, I shall continue for the sake of those want the gory details. AVOID THIS MOVIE LIKE THE PLAGUE. [Note: In spite of my experience with this film in the theater, I am going to consider giving it a shot at the MST3K treatment thanks to one of my fellow reviewers evaluation...] Hey, here's another short summary: I saw this film in the company of an 18 year old male who thinks Armageddon is one of the best films ever, AND loves Antonio, AND loves Lucy... HE hated it! "We went into this with the best of intentions..." We really did. We expected to really enjoy this. What did we get? Inane, and incomprehensible plot and script. Kaos? It takes true talent to produce this much choreographed mayhem but render it devoid of any entertainment or interest. The comparisons made with XXX are somewhat credible, but that film is at least 2-3 times better. And The Transporter?? At least 10+ times better! There are at least SOME things to enjoy in XXX, and The Transporter was hugely entertaining. This one should have gone into the cage with The Gimp®, never to see the light of day again.

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.
