I Come In Peace aka Dark Angel Jack Caine (Dolph Lundgren) is a Houston vice cop who’s forgotten the rule book. His self-appointed mission is to stop the drugs trade and the number one supplier Victor Manning. Whilst involved in an undercover operation to entrap Victor Manning, his partner gets killed, and a sinister newcomer enters the scene… Along with F.B.I. agent Lawrence Smith, the two investigate a spate of mysterious deaths; normal non-junkies dying of massive heroin overdoses and bearing the same horrific puncture marks on the forehead. This, coupled with Caine’s own evidence, indicates an alien force is present on the streets of Houston, killing and gathering stocks of a rare drug found only in the brain… Caine is used to fighting the toughest of criminals, but up to now they’ve all been human…
The Best Lundgren movie
I Come In Peace aka Dark Angel You can say what you want about Dolph Lundgren – yes, he’s made some HORRIBLE movies and at times can make Keanu Reeves look talented – but I Come in Peace is a sizeable cut above the rest of his body of work. The plot is OK, has a few interesting touches but just as many derivative ones, but that’s not what makes this film so good. It is the entertaining interaction of Lundgren and Brian Benben – their constantly ripping each other and acting macho, it’s hilarious. And the other supporting characters are fun to watch, too, from Matthias Hues as the one note alien heavy, to Jay Bilas as the alien good guy, to the hilarious Mark Lowenthal as Bruce, the paranoid scientist genius. Even Lundgren gets into the act with some awesome one-liners that even Ah-nuld would be proud to have uttered. A 5-star B-movie classic!
It’s a classic
