Storyline

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 Rob Hartill

A time bomb waiting to happen!
23 April 2007 | by (WILMINGTON, NC) – See all my reviews

Averting threats are a common way to keep peace in check, but when it comes to a robot with a built-in bomb, there's going to be trouble. For Col. Jim McQuade(Gregory Hines), he's the man. The robot Eve VIII(Renee Soutendjik) has the memories of her creator(also played by her). However, she has the worst temper out of any woman you would cross. When she was with those rowdy guys. There was a bit of humor when she bit one of them on the "love gun". Rule number one, never reveal yourself to a lady robot. You just might get it! I know he won't be having sex for a while, OUCH! It was more painful to watch when she broke the other guy's arm. She was like that when she was going on the brink. She was much more dangerous when she started ticking. The only Achilles' heel on her were her eyes. And Jim had the laser sighted gun to use against her. The subway scene is one I'll never forget. Confronting EVE VIII, seeing the laser sight before her, and the subway train heading towards McQuade. The trains were computer-controlled and Jim's quick thinking always seems to be on his side. This movie has the action, yet it was very subtle. Very watchable though. 2.5 out of 5 stars
