Eve is a military robot made to look exactly like her creator.

When she is damaged during a bank robbery, the robot begins to use more of the memories she has been programmed with by her creator, the dark, angry ones.

She becomes a killing machine if anyone tries to stop her.

A tap dancer is assigned to stop the robot and with the scientist who programmed her tries to think what she will do next....

This was the original Terminatrix, back in 1991 there were only two cyborgs, Arnie and Eve. Guess who is the least remembered? What I didn't get was just how serious the tone of the film was. Imean the film is basically about a nuclear bomb that gets frustrated when its called a certain word that is derogatory toward women, this should have been hilarious.

When Hines shows up, I thought, this could get the ribs tickled now this guy is in it, but he looks really angry through the film, and ruins the camp feel it should have.

Rene however you pronounce her surname, is really grim in this, at times I couldn't tell who was the cyborg and who was the Doctor, she was that wooden, and it's surprising considering shes so good in Spetters.

But, it's a cyborg movie, a nuclear bomb cyborg movie, and it deliver that typical cheesy nineties action you expect.

Yuppies get owned, hillbillies lose parts of them, and eyes get shot out by Hines, so all is not lost.

Early nineties video stores were rife with his type of film early in the nineties, this one wasn't that bad.

Hell hath no fury like a woman bomb. 12 Nov. 2007
By D. brfown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The military's newest secret weapon is out for a test run when she is injured in a bank robbery. Her handler's death triggers her progamming so that she begins carrying out doomsday combat orders. Enter Gregory Hines as a special forces officer who is now tasked with stopping a threat he was never trained for: a walking nuclear weapon. The more he learns about Eve, the less he likes. After several failed attempts, he is trapped between her and an onrushing subway train. It is a no holds barred battle to the finish as he must choose between his death and the death of half of New York. Definetly for the action fans.

Flubbed the dvd 26 Jun. 2006
By ajsteele - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I remember seeing this many years ago and thinking this is decent sci-fi. The female menace is sort of hot looking and there is a genuine feeling of peril as she attacks. How did gregory Hines get this role? He did okay but he seemed an oddball choice for the lead role. Another one of those strange dvd disasters regarding the transfer. Its in fullscreen!(pan and scan) Where the heck is the widescreen? Someone doesnt care about the proper presentation of films. Nice sci-fi for a rainy Saturday afternoon, but wait for a widescreen transfer.

"Eve of Destruction" Blasts Its Way on to Blu-ray 18 Oct. 2013
By ERSInk . com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
Never failing to let fans of any sub-genre down, Scream Factory unleashes the sci-fi action flick "Eve of Destruction" on Blu-ray for the first time ever. Granted, it's a bare-bones edition strictly for those who have wondered where the forgotten 1991 cult classic disappeared to. The movie was a box office disaster when originally released, but found a second life on VHS and DVD. It's been largely ignored over the years, partly because it's rarely shown on television.

Eve VIII (Renee Soutendijk) is a deadly android created in the image of her maker. After years of research, the machine is sent out on her first test mission. Things go horribly wrong when she's damaged and short-circuits. Now, Eve VIII is maiming and killing anything it perceives as a threat. Terrorism expert Jim McQuade (Gregory Hines) and the android's creator must track it down before she goes nuclear.

I remember seeing this little slice of cheese in theaters when it first came out and often wondered what happened to it. It's not a great movie by any means. However, if you're looking for some additional cyborg fun after exhausting your copies of all the "Terminator" movies, look no further. The best way to describe this is as the "Terminator" if Arnold Schwarzenegger was replaced by a middle-aged blonde in a mini-skirt and high-heels.

The late Gregory Hines does a wonderful job playing the no-nonsense terrorist expert assigned to track down Eve VIII. He marches around convincingly with his oversized pistol wondering why they didn't give the android an "f@3!ing off switch." Renee Soutendijk portrays both the doctor and the Eve VIII robot, switching back and forth from panic-stricken to emotionless, seductive, and angry. The movie really gave the actor a wide range of emotions to bounce through in her first American role.

The movie is rated R for strong violence, language, adult situations, and nudity. it really feels like the boob shots in "Eve of Destruction" are needless and tacked on to tantalize male audiences. They don't help to further the story or plot, except to show that Eve VIII looks real in every way. I still don't think they were necessary to get the point across.

"Eve of Destruction" is presented in 1080p High-Definition Widescreen (1.78:1). The picture is clear but the Blu-ray transfer didn't rob the movie of its gritty look. The DTS-HD Master Audio Stereo breathes new life into the film's score and environmental sound effects.

Unlike most Scream Factory releases, "Eve of Destruction" doesn't come with much in the way of special features. All that's included here is a trailer. This probably has something to do with the fact that most of the people involved in the making of the film are either dead or moved on in their careers. Both Gregory Hines and Director Duncan Gibbons passed away many years ago. Renee Soutendijk sticks to roles in European films and television shows and lives outside of the U.S.

"Eve of Destruction" is a perfect example of the sci-fi movies audiences were getting in the early and mid-1990s. It fits nicely next to such cult classics as "Mandroid," "Nemesis," "Hardware," and "Universal Soldier." Is it as entertaining as "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" or "Total Recall?" Of course not, but it still has its place in the Museum of Schlocky Genre Cheese.

An old time favorite 21 Dec. 2013
By Joseph R. Norman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Not a perfect movie but for its time it was a really different kind of SciFi movie. I think it still stands up well and it never looked better in the release.

Hot 'Bot! 4 Sept. 2000
By Jason Vance - Published on Amazon.com
Eve is a veeery realistic-looking android babe with some nifty military hardware including a hot bod, and a nuclear bomb. What a woman! But when things go awry in her testing phase during a bank robbery, Eve winds up lost in the big city. Now, the rescue team, which includes the real (human) Eve and Gregory Hines, must find and disarm her before she goes "kerblooey." Of course Eve is programmed to protect herself at all costs, and virtually any-sized problem she is presented is met with her own brand of "Six Million Dollar Man"-esque ultra-violence, resulting in the destruction part of the film's title.
