Did You Know?

Trivia:
Just before this film was released, TV and radio spots were issued that featured a rap score not used in the film itself. The score was performed by Charles Jackson a.k.a. C.J. SKYY and Michael Haney a.k.a. Ice Mike.See more »
Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): The public and police are told that the robot (Eve Eight) is an armed terrorist. Yet, when several cops come to arrest her, their weapons are not drawn, they are closely spaced, and they are out in the open rather than under cover.See more »

Grade B all the way, 13 November 1999
Author: Jon (ssgtjon@hotmail.com) from San Antonio, Texas

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.
