Did You Know?

The project was initially titled "Lethal Contact" (as it was first written in 1984 as a spec script by Jonathan Tydor). The production, filming and international title is "Dark Angel", and was released as such worldwide, before it was changed to "I Come in Peace" for the late U.S. release, because of two other existing movies entitled "The Dark Angel" (from 1925 and 1935).See more »
Factual errors: When the White Boy infiltrates the police station he flame cuts through an iron bar grid which is embedded in the walls. When he's done the grid falls off in one piece, undamaged, with no bars left in the wall.See more »

It's a classic, 14 January 2004
Author: diamondtriangle from United States

I was surprised to see such a low rating for this movie. I've probably seen this movie like 10 times. And after my wife found out I'm a Dolph Lundgren fan, I think the first thing she asked me was, "do you own "I Come In Peace"?", because she was already a fan of the movie too. Anyway, if you like sci-fi action movies, check it out.
