Jack Caine (Dolph Lundgren) is a Houston vice cop who's forgotten the rule book. His self-appointed mission is to stop the drugs trade and the number one supplier Victor Manning. Whilst involved in an undercover operation to entrap Victor Manning, his partner gets killed, and a sinister newcomer enters the scene... Along with F.B.I. agent Lawrence Smith, the two investigate a spate of mysterious deaths; normal non-junkies dying of massive heroin overdoses and bearing the same horrific puncture marks on the forehead. This, coupled with Caine's own evidence, indicates an alien force is present on the streets of Houston, killing and gathering stocks of a rare drug found only in the brain... Caine is used to fighting the toughest of criminals, but up to now they've all been human... Written by

The story, while being a little predictable, starts well and is generally solid and well-paced. Special effects are stunning in places and lame in others, but the effect of the action upon the characters makes up for it. An improbable turn as a buddy movie between two guys with nothing in common - finding they have the world in common is always a good story - even if you've heard it before. An Al Leong appearance certifies this as a good B-grade action movie, and Betsy Brantley (who has played opposite arguably the best Sherlock ever, Jeremy Brett) does a workman's job as Dolph Lundgren's love interest. Brian Benben fits nicely into the standard "sidekick - not a sidekick" position common in such films as this one. The supporting cast is apparently enjoying the production and the feel of the film is positive, if not worthy of the Academy. One of the film's messages that I find useful, is to learn to use your ray-gun BEFORE you go into battle!
