A secretive young woman hires disillusioned private eye Joe Keyes to locate her husband, Warren Rickman. He does so, only to realize too late he was followed by two strange, seemingly bulletproof, yet highly inflammable goons disguised as milkmen, who attack them, assassinate Rickman and frame Joe for murder. With the help of his friend, Det. Sgt. Eldon James, Joe locates Mrs. Rickman and her little daughter Gracie who turn out to be under the protection of his ex, Monica Quik. He learns that Gracie is infected with revolutionary futuristic nanobots known as "Deep Red" which possess incredible healing ability that illustrious scientist Dr. Thomas Newmeyer wants for himself no matter the cost, and the "milkmen" are working for him. Joe agrees to help the girls even though the case brings back painful memories of his disastrous attempt to save the family of Eldon's partner, Mack Waters, who's been holding a serious grudge ever since and really wants to see Joe dead.

It was tough ... but the avg genre fan will enjoy
18 November 2007 | by nothing_importantSee all my reviews

There isn't anything wrong with the overall tone, the scene shooting looks good enough and the actors have a fair script it seem so to me. Interesting premises if a little "deux ex machina". It does alter the 'overall tone' as I mentioned i.e. another sciffy is logged for our enjoyment. I like the score, no pop songs or MTV montages here. Biehn is easy on the eyes as is the Polish actress who plays Monica. I like most of the user comments here; My rating is 5/10. To quote a nice scene in the movie, "It felt good tonight didn't it?" There were nice, understated FX. The cheese is more like a condiment than a key ingredient.
