The year is 2008. Global warming has melted much of the polar ice caps, resulting in serious flooding around the world - including the city of London, which is now under several feet of water. In the ensuing chaos, a new killer has emerged. One that's unnatural, unrelenting and unstoppable. Maverick veteran policeman Harley Stone (Rutger Hauer) has a link with the killer - it murdered his partner, and he will do whatever it takes to bring down the killer. As a new rookie is assigned to him, Stone must find the killer, rescue his girlfriend, and fight off his own inner demons as he gets closer to his mysterious adversary. But when the killer is a vicious ten foot tall alien creature, even in the future, there aren't guns big enough to stop the creature's deadly reign.Written by

Tony Maylam couldn't finish the movie due to all the stress he went through during production, so Ian Sharp and others took over and completed it. Sharp filmed the final action scene in the subway and some other additional scenes, which is why he is credited as co-director in the end credits. See more »

How many weapons are you carrying, besides this 'cannon'?
A Glock 50.
An A3 Assault Shotgun.
If that's not paranoid, I don't know what the fuck is. I'm surprised you don't have a grenade launcher.
I couldn't get a permit.

The Japanese cut contains several additional scenes, mostly with Det. Dick Durkin's girlfriend Robin, who he mentions in the film, but she is never seen. Roberta Eaton, who plays her, is credited in all versions of the movie, but all of her scenes were cut from all but the Japanese version. This extended cut has been released on DVD in Germany, and the additional scenes on Blu-ray in the UK. See more »
The nerve of some of you. "I was expecting a Hollywood masterpiece" WHAT?? It's a Rutger Hauer movie you mindless spawns of ignorance! For what it was, It was a damn good film. Anyone with a brain knows before buying it, renting it, that it it ain't Oscar material folks. It's a low budget sci-fi that happens to be pretty damn good. I thought the alien was good, and not cheesy or hokie looking, the idea of the flooding and constant raining was pretty clever, and the time frame was believable to me. Lighten up losers. This "B flick" blows away a lot of "A flicks" see "War Of The Worlds". Yes, different strokes for different folks, but those of you who thought this flick was a waste of time, should't be renting sci-fi videos but probably should be sticking to your typical mainstream cinema, you know the stuff you think is so "movie genius", like Broke back Mountain.
