Movie Info

In this miniseries, two scientists look to space to tap an unlimited energy supply for Earth, but their experiment is sabotaged by eco-activists, turning an already risky proposition into one that could mean the end of the planet. ~ Joe Friedrich, Rovi

'So this device of yours is horny as well as psychopathic?' asks Gregory Hines, cast as a military badass so self-assured he's nicknamed himself 'God.'

Gregory Hines as a cyborg hunter? The casting couldn't be more perfect if Ben Vereen were cast as the lead in Terminator 5.

For whatever flaws it contains - and there are many - the film now seems like an intriguingly eccentric little genre effort that marches to the beat of its own weird drummer.

Overheard at the pitch meeting: "So what if The Terminator was like, um... a sexy lady in a red leather get-up?" "Sold!"

Disappointing Terminator rip-off. Not enough chase, not enough destruction.

Great title for a bad flick.

The movie that introduced Gregory Hines as an action star. ("Running Scared" was a comedy!)

Audience Reviews for Eve of Destruction

It really is the acting, or lack of it, that lets this down. It's so deadpan that they might as well all be in Pet Shop Boys video. You get the feeling that once they'd all got dressed up, the actors decided that was enough to earn their money and gave up on the rest of it. I can't say I blame them either.

Unstoppable! Renee Soutendijk is sexy and lethal as a sophisticated and deadly android run amok in this sci-fi thriller.
