Storyline

New York, Christmas Eve, 1999 - at the dawn of the new millennium - a subway construction crew unearths an eight hundred year old Celtic skeleton and a mysterious key. Archeologist Karen Goodleaf is called in to determine the meaning of the discovery. News of the discovery reaches a Middle East monastery where the warrior monks knowns as the Knights Templer - an ancient sect entrusted with protecting holy relics - choose their best pupil, Lukas (Dolph Lundgren) to face the diabolical threat. As Lukas races to New York, an evil Minion seizes Karen and uses its body like a parasite and host. Lukas arrives just in time to rescue Karen and despatch the Minion. The Minion takes hold of another host - revealing that it is immortal. As it cuts a path of destruction through the city, decimating a parking garage and leaving a trail of death, Karen realizes that the Minion can't be killed - but only delayed from finding a new host.

Goofs

Towards the end of the movie, when they came out of the tunnel thing at the nuclear plant, Lundgren asked where the nearest International Airport is. The response was to the effect if they crossed the border at Cornwall, then Montreal International was the closest. First off...the airport at Montreal, at the time the movie was made was called Dorval not Montreal International. (It has since been renamed Pierre Elliot Trudeau International) Secondly, if they crossed the border at Cornwall, the nearest International Airport would be Ottawa International, about 1 - 1 1/2 hours from the border.

§12 million down the tubes!
6 June 1999 | by (Huddinge, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is without a doubt one of the worst movies EVER, I emphasize, EVER made. What´s worse, my old hero Dolph is in it and he´s starring it. Jesus... The story is actually quite good but the way it´s carried out made even my body hurt. The fighting scenes for starters are about as well choreographed as a fight between two drunks slugging it out in the gutter. The actors, except for Dolph who kinda sucks also, perform so badly you can´t help but wonder if their reason for being there is that they´re all friends of the director, who by the way must have been absent most, if not all, of the time. This is §12 million spent in an unimaginable way, because by the look of the effects and scenery, the cost can´t be a cent above §1000.
