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
your worst nightmare: A female terminator with human emotions!
So let's see if Gregory Hines can tap dance his way out of this one! Eve 8 is a human cyborg created secretly by the military, and she's armed and dangerous. She doesn't seem to have any problem getting hold of any weapon, and don't even think of trying to tackle her down with hand to hand combat. She's mean, ruthless, and she's on the loose. The cyborg is being tested, so its not yet programmed with any military commands. The experiment goes awry during a bank robbery, when she is shot, which screwed up her internal workings. Now she's on the lose, to the public, and nobody is safe from her unpredictable shenanigans. The only two people who stand a good shot at taking her down is Jim McQuade ( Hines), who is a colonel given special orders to move onto a special assignment. He won't be too happy about this, and his mood doesn't look like it will improve much through the film, as this is taking time away from his training camp. His special assignment: Take down Eve VIII by any means of force necessary. He won't be able to do this by himself, however, as he finds himself teamed up with Dr. Eve Simmons. Dr. Simmons will prove herself a vital tool in McQuades quest in the not-so-easy task of taking this military robot down and out of harms way. Eve 8 is almost a duplicate of Dr. Simmons, since she was taken from her image, although Simmons will argue that they are not entirely the same. ( Of course, Dr. Simmons isn't going around shooting anybody!) Another advantage that Simmons has on helping to end the cyborgs insane rampage, is that the robot seems to have inherited her...ready for this?...memories and secret fantasies. These memories somehow got programmed into the robot, and none of them seem to be good memories, as we see in the flashbacks. These memories are played randomly through the cyborgs mind, who appears human, but is almost entirely machine. The memories mainly deal with a little girl watching her daddy abusing mommy, which upsets her quite dramatically. If you value your life, you will NOT call her the name that rhymes with "witch"...this is a very BAD trigger in her that causes her to become quite violent. Looks like your mouth just wrote a check your butt couldn't cash, boys! Life goes on, luckily, without you, since her main target kills seem to be knocking off insensitive men. My kind of woman! If she knew how to cook, I'd say "I do" to something like that! Life seems to get more complicated, however, for our hero McQuade, when he learns that a certain event has triggered Eve 8 into 'battle field mode'. Battle field mode means she's put herself on a 24 hour clock. She's literally giving you one day to pack your stuff, and go find a corner to tuck your head into, and pray you survive the explosion. She could take out several, SEVERAL blocks of innocent lives. It's a rat race against time to put an end to Eve 8 once and for all! Although the script suffers a bit, mainly due to the over abundant lack of answers to the questions that may be posed to the viewer, Eve Of Destruction isn't a complete bust. It's overall a great violent action thriller with some pretty good scenes, including a car chase, a mishap in the motel room ( God, I love you! ), and the climatic ending. I must warn, for Gregory Hines fans, this film would be 'for fans only', as it's a far cry from Running Scared. In fact, after this movie is over, he may not be the only one running scared.
