Eve of Destruction Review

Image for Eve of Destruction

Eve is a military robot made to look exactly like her creator. When she is damaged during a bank robbery, the robot begins to use more of the memories she has been programmed with by her creator, the dark, angry ones.

★★★★★

Behind a world-beating promo poster — Renee Soutendijk in black miniskirt and red leather jacket lovingly fellating an automatic weapon, lies a rather crappy sci-fi action movie.

A rip-off of The Terminator, this casts Soutendijk as a repressed scientist and as her creation, a lookalike hoyden robot with a nuclear womb. Naturally, Eve the Robot goes out of control and starts chomping down on rednecks’ schlongs, causing road accidents and machine-gunning innocent bystanders.

Terminally bored counter-terrorist Gregory Hines tracks down the robot, who’ll explode in an unsuspenseful 24 hours, and the whole ho-hum thing comes to an end.

This s-f action movie winds down slowly like broken clockwork.
