Storyline

Jack Caine (Dolph Lundgren) is a Houston vice cop who's forgotten the rule book. His self-appointed mission is to stop the drugs trade and the number one supplier Victor Manning. Whilst involved in an undercover operation to entrap Victor Manning, his partner gets killed, and a sinister newcomer enters the scene... Along with F.B.I. agent Lawrence Smith, the two investigate a spate of mysterious deaths; normal non-junkies dying of massive heroin overdoses and bearing the same horrific puncture marks on the forehead. This, coupled with Caine's own evidence, indicates an alien force is present on the streets of Houston, killing and gathering stocks of a rare drug found only in the brain... Caine is used to fighting the toughest of criminals, but up to now they've all been human... Written by anonymous

my fav
7 October 2000 | by dclark26See all my reviews

i dig this movie and always have. the line 'u can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs' is an ultimate classic. add to that the 7ft aliens and a truckload of explosions and u've got a sure-fire way to spend way to spend a session watching this vid. it has a whole taste of it's own. dolph's work has possibly become less exceptional as time goes on but think abt the likes of good dudes like lambert and hauer and u'll include this in ur must-rent list.
