I Come in Peace Reviews
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.
Very typical movie of the time, with lots of action, goofy dialog and some fun catchphrases.
The main alien constantly says "I come in peace".
The idea that some alien dude would come to Earth, steal some drugs, then use those drugs to get humans high JUST so that he could then extract stuff from their body which is considered an uber drug where he comes from... is so out there... that it's believable.
Ever since this movie, should anyone come near me and say I Come in Peace... I shoot 'em on site. I'm not taking any chances.
