Critic Reviews for I Come in Peace

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (5)

  • Benben is a capable comedian done in by tiresome, repetitive material.

  • The deceptively straight-looking Benben, however, proves to be a wily scene-stealer with a very sharp sense of comic timing.

  • With an upbeat script and a healthy sense of humour, this is an unashamedly ridiculous affair with moderate ambitions and matching success.

  • This story turns out to be much more mundane than its outrageously clever premise.

    May 20, 2003 | Full Review…
  • Baxley has fashioned a moderately entertaining police thriller whose twist comes from the revelation that its major bad guy is a drug dealer from outer space.

  • Dolph Lundgren puts in a good performance here as a Houston detective on the trail of an intergalactic drug dealer in this smartly scripted and crisply directed science-fiction spin...

    Dolph Lundgren is one of those action stars that is fairly hit and miss and at times, he can displayed something quite good, entertaining and fun even if the film is quite tongue in cheek and that is the case with Dark Angel. This is a hybrid all sorts of genres and it strangely works quite well to be a highly entertaining cult film that is very engaging from start to finish. The result is a worthwhile film that is really one of Lundgren's best. Granted the guy really is sketchy when it comes to "acting", yet he delivers here, and with the plot, which I think is awesome, it's hard to resist. I never go into real detail in any of my reviews, because I believe that the less you know the more suspensewfu7l the experience will be. What the film offers is something truly entertaining from start to finish, and if you enjoy low budget cult action at its very best, then this is sure to wet your appetite for action thrills. Dark Angel is far from great cinema, but for what it is, it's an entertaining ride, one that is so much and thrilling that you forget the films weaknesses exists. This is pure popcorn thrash at its very best, and I say that as a compliment. The film is cheesy, thrilling and riveting, and will certainly entertain anyone that enjoys finding a new, undiscovered action film that is well worth seeing due to its original concept. This is a film that is an impressive cult movie and it certainly is a one that is a must watch for diehard fans looking for new and exciting pictures to watch.

    Fairly entertaining and convincing cop scifi film. Performances, action and effects are very acceptable. One of Mr Lundgren's better movies.

    What on earth is going on with the film title here I dunno but I prefer 'Dark Angel' for sure. Anyways this was Matthias Hues big flick for which he is most remembered for, which isn't much to shout about. Very silly sci-fi flick about an alien drug dealer sucking endorphins out of human brains to sell all over the galaxy. Its very hokey even for its time and without Lundgren would be total B-movie schlock. Even with Lundgren its still pretty poor with bad effects, terrible acting and only a few impressive car stunts to hand. I mean really...how can you take this remotely seriously with a gang of thugs called 'The White Boys' that are all dressed in suits and look like killer yuppies. Its a classic dumb sci-fi B-movie for sure but I just didn't really like it that much. Benben was constantly annoying and the whole film was trying way too hard with the obvious mismatched buddy cop/hero duo squabbling with each other setup. All this did was come across as boring cliched unoriginal and resulting in some majorly lame forced humour.

    My father recommended this movie and I was a LITTLE apprehensive when I saw that the movie was made in 1990. lol, the synthesizers, big hair and acid-washed jeans took some adjusting to. I've said in many previous reviews that I'm not big on theatrical cop dramas because their televised ilk have made such great strides, it takes a lot more than nudity and profanity to sway me towards a cop movie. I was actually entertained.. This movie about an alien drug dealer wreaking havoc on Earth was kind of original. The "bad alien," as he is credited, looks like Raiden from Mortal Kombat though. The best part of this film though, is the camaraderie between Dolph Lundgren's macho, smart-aleck cop and David Ackroyd's less-macho, but equally-smart-aleck G-Man. They were hilarious. Constantly insulting contacts, enemies and getting into it with each other. An enjoyable hour and a half!
