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

Goofs

The steering wheel airbag that deploys in the BMW remains completely inflated after deployment, interfering with the driver's ability to steer. Air bags begin to deflate through built-in openings within 1/10th of a second or less after deployment, as they are designed to cushion an impact by decelerating a head and torso. See more »

Grade B all the way
13 November 1999 | by (San Antonio, Texas) – See all my reviews

I went to see this movie for the very short time it was in theaters mainly because it had Dutch actress Renee Sountendijk in her first American role, and I had enjoyed her in Spetters and The Fourth Man, directed by Paul Verhoeven, who made Robocop, Basic Instinct, and Starship Troopers. It seems she spends the whole movie trying to sound American. Gregory Hines was a terrible choice as an Army Colonel who works with Eve to try to help track down the robot she created. Skip it.
