Storyline

The Russian government has collapsed. Amidst the chaos, riots, and struggle for power, a terrible weapon has leaked out. Virulent microflage, a deadly germ of the cold war has begun to spread across Eastern Europe, killing massive numbers of people. Now, in a quarantine camp set up for immigrants in 2017 Boston, one vicious murderer has the disease. Within two hours he will become violently contagious, and it is up to a team of officers in a race against time to track him down and stop him... if he doesn't kill them first. Written by Eric Yang

Delon: No one saw it coming. We were all looking out for big things. A nuclear accident, another Chernobyl... As the Russian republic split apart, no one knew who was responsible for what. While they were trying to figure it out, something leaked, something small. It rolled through eastern Europe moving west like a giant wave of death. They called it virulent microphage.

Adrenalin is a great film due to the faults. Regard it as a comedy!
7 August 2001 | by AlKeSee all my reviews

First time I saw Adrenalin I cried. Not because of sadness. Nor because of something in my eye. I cried because of laughing. This movie was so pathetic that it was actually funny!!!!

The plot is very simple: In the future a mutated man (a monster really) is ravaging a city. A special team is sent to destroy it... -and so they do after a lot of death, chaos, shooting, etc.

However, the plot is insignificant really, because the best thing about this film is all the faults. For example, in a scene the monster has crawled up a shaft and the special team are just about to follow it. Suddenly the monster shows up and shoots at Christopher Lambert with a gun. He's hit approximately 10 times and it seems as if they have used the very same cut to all the times he's shot. Another thing is that it's suspicious the way the special team is destroyed by the monster. I mean it is a special team of some sort, made to destroy monsters wearing fancy suits, etc. Anyway it takes the monster about 20 seconds to kill them all...

All in all, I'll actually recommend this film if you're ready to take as some kind of a comedy. However it's a failure as a serious action film! Better be prepared!!!
