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

There is a scene that shows the two main characters as passengers in an SR-71 Blackbird reconnaisence jet. The plane is equipped with only two seats - the pilot and the navigator. There is no space at all for passengers. See more »

Goofs

When Eve hits the rear end of the black BMW on the highway, the driver is shown being thrown forward towards the steering wheel. When a car is struck from behind, a body in the car is forced backwards, not forwards, as the vehicle is actually accelerating. This happens every time she hits the car. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Eve Simmons: I don't know where shes going to go next, okay? I can only give you some clues, after the events.
Colonel Jim McQuade: Yeah, well there might be a few more events before the nights over, Miss Simmons!

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.
