"This is very stoopeed, Stevie." I must have repeated that line to myself a dozen times before this abysmal techno-thriller shuddered to a much-appreciated end.

The conclusion is so rushed it almost functions as parody. But the biggest impression the movie leaves is that William "Kangaroo Head" Baldwin makes lots of unintentionally goofy faces.

Until the diverting special effects take center stage, this story, about an alien intelligence that builds an army out of flesh and metal, pathetically exploits genre conventions without generating self-reference, camp, or thrills.
April 25, 2007
A derivative sci-fi shocker that isn't likely to spark much interest beyond its target audience of undemanding genre fans.

While he can fling together a competent action or special effects sequence, his handling of the plot and actors is strictly routine.

Even Donald Sutherland in the potentially juicy role as a self-serving old sea dog, is wasted in this big budget ill.

When the automated robotic lab starts using dead bodies as biological material to create killing machines programmed to believe man is harmful and must be destroyed.

bathed in an incessant gloom that makes it look like one of the comic book artists who inspired this sci-fi/horror hybrid spilled his ink blotter on the film's negatives

February 14, 2001
An unpretentious, amusing thrill-a-minute sci-fi horror thriller / monster movie that plugs right into fears of a Y2K crisis.

As long on adrenaline and special effects as it is short on genuine novelty and intellectual content.

95 minutes of unrelieved tedium.

The last shot is an homage to The African Queen, a movie I earnestly recommend instead of this one.

Besides the bloodthirsty E.T., tugboat navigator Curtis must deal with something even worse: lousy acting from her fellow cast members.
