Eve is a robot, modelled on "her" creator. Eve's armoury includes a nuclear bomb, which for unexplained reasons is on-board during Eve's testing. When things go wrong during the tests, Eve is lost in the big city. Enter the rescue team, which includes the real (human) Eve. They must find and disarm her before she goes "bang". Eve is programmed to protect herself at all costs, so when she runs into a problem, she resorts to her super strength; hence the destruction. Written by

Eve of Destruction is infamous in The Netherlands because it meant the failure of Renée Soutendijk's career in the States, the film being a flop. When I was watching this movie however, I didn't expect such a B-movie.
Surely the story was not original, but the special effects were really pathetic and everything looked just plain and ugly. What bothered me most was the unfitting, melodramatic music score which sounded like it was made for an eighties soap-opera (!).
I think a low budget is not really an excuse here because the superior Terminator (1984! 7 years older) was also made with a low budget. But that one had genius James Cameron directing and Arnie on the rise of stardom, besides good performances by the other actors.
Expect none of that here. The casting, the soundtrack, the dialogue, the action and the effects: they all disappoint. One of those movies that you really regret wasting your precious time on. Not 1/10 though because there are even worse Terminator clones.
I give it 2/10.
