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

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

When Eve hits the black BMW in the rear end on the highway, the steering wheel airbag deploys. This cannot occur, as the sensors for that air bag are in or behind the front bumper. Since being struck in the rear end makes a body move backwards, forcing them towards the seat, the deployment of a steering wheel airbag would be pointless, and would render it useless if the vehicle was then pushed into something in front of it.

Cult, why not?
19 January 1999 | by PhytonSee all my reviews

Eve of destruction is a bad movie, no doubt about it. It's a terminator rip-off with a weird story. Renee Soutendijk, who plays in a double role blew her changes for making it in the US for good with this movie. That is a shame because she is quite a good actress. And because of this misfortune I would like to recommend this movie to all you cult lovers out there. I mean think about it; a strong woman (feministic), some nice and utterly useless violence, a rip off, a lousy tag line and a bad story. So go ask for Eve of Destruction at your local cult video store.
