Format: Blu-ray
Never failing to let fans of any sub-genre down, Scream Factory unleashes the sci-fi action flick "Eve of Destruction" on Blu-ray for the first time ever. Granted, it's a bare-bones edition strictly for those who have wondered where the forgotten 1991 cult classic disappeared to. The movie was a box office disaster when originally released, but found a second life on VHS and DVD. It's been largely ignored over the years, partly because it's rarely shown on television.

Eve VIII (Renee Soutendijk) is a deadly android created in the image of her maker. After years of research, the machine is sent out on her first test mission. Things go horribly wrong when she's damaged and short-circuits. Now, Eve VIII is maiming and killing anything it perceives as a threat. Terrorism expert Jim McQuade (Gregory Hines) and the android's creator must track it down before she goes nuclear.

I remember seeing this little slice of cheese in theaters when it first came out and often wondered what happened to it. It's not a great movie by any means. However, if you're looking for some additional cyborg fun after exhausting your copies of all the "Terminator" movies, look no further. The best way to describe this is as the "Terminator" if Arnold Schwarzenegger was replaced by a middle-aged blonde in a mini-skirt and high-heels.

The late Gregory Hines does a wonderful job playing the no-nonsense terrorist expert assigned to track down Eve VIII. He marches around convincingly with his oversized pistol wondering why they didn't give the android an "f@3!ing off switch." Renee Soutendijk portrays both the doctor and the Eve VIII robot, switching back and forth from panic-stricken to emotionless, seductive, and angry.

One of the few movies where you DON'T see Gregory Hines dancing up a storm on a staircase, and he proves that he could deftly handle action & adventure roles, as well as Wesley Snipes.

In this outing, he portrays a security consultant for our federal government, specializing in thwarting terrorists. But this time, he's not up against any human being; the weapon is a human-appearing female who is actually a walking atomic bomb, capable, when "triggered," of leveling 20 square blocks, 24 hours after being armed.

The good news is that she CAN be stopped, but WILL SHE?

For every great thing he did, he did some middle of the road duds, like this and some flat-out garbage, like Color of Justice. It's a very 80's movie and sort of illustrated why Hines worked better playing off of someone, rather than trying to carry a movie himself. You've gotta admire the man. Even when he was in obvious dogs, he still poured everything into it and was often the best thing about any movie he was in. Gone way too soon!

The military's newest secret weapon is out for a test run when she is injured in a bank robbery. Her handler's death triggers her progamming so that she begins carrying out doomsday combat orders. Enter Gregory Hines as a special forces officer who is now tasked with stopping a threat he was never trained for: a walking nuclear weapon. The more he learns about Eve, the less he likes. After several failed attempts, he is trapped between her and an onrushing subway train. It is a no holds barred battle to the finish as he must choose between his death and the death of half of New York. Definetly for the action fans.

I remember seeing this many years ago and thinking this is decent sci-fi. The female menace is sort of hot looking and there is a genuine feeling of peril as she attacks. How did gregory Hines get this role? He did okay but he seemed an oddball choice for the lead role. Another one of those strange dvd disasters regarding the transfer. Its in fullscreen!(pan and scan) Where the heck is the widescreen? Someone doesnt care about the proper presentation of films. Nice sci-fi for a rainy Saturday afternoon, but wait for a widescreen transfer.

An overlooked gem with plenty of action.
Gregory Hines gives a solid performance as a government/military operative
and Renee Soutendijk does a good job playing the protagonist.

Certainly not big budget like the later Terminator flicks but still a fun watch.

For the prudes in the audience or young children there is some brief nudity.

Excellent release! Very high quality picture for DVD. I liked that left MGM to release the original Full Screen transfer. It is with such a transfer, I watched this movie the first time. I got great pleasure from watching a movie. Thanks to MGM and Amazon, which made it possible to see this film in a new capacity.
