The Synopsis for Dark Angel (1990) 1080p
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...

A Masterpiece.......Reviewed byrmadesp ([email protected])Vote: 5/10
The story, while being a little predictable, starts well and is generallysolid and well-paced. Special effects are stunning in places and lame inothers, but the effect of the action upon the characters makes up for it.Animprobable turn as a buddy movie between two guys with nothing in common -finding they have the world in common is always a good story - even ifyou've heard it before. An Al Leong appearance certifies this as a goodB-grade action movie, and Betsy Brantley (who has played opposite arguablythe best Sherlock ever, Jeremy Brett) does a workman's job as DolphLundgren's love interest. Brian Benben fits nicely into the standard"sidekick - not a sidekick" position common in such films as this one. Thesupporting cast is apparently enjoying the production and the feel of thefilm is positive, if not worthy of the Academy. One of the film's messagesthat I find useful, is to learn to use your ray-gun BEFORE you go intobattle!
The tag line on the old VHS box cover of "I Come In Peace" (aka "DarkAngel" if you're outside of the U.S.) pretty much tells you everythingyou need to know about the movie: "Good Cop. Bad Alien. BIG Trouble."Dolph Lundgren made his mark on the late '80s action B-Film scene inmany other movies but for my money "I Come In Peace" remains his bestfilm. It's got everything an action junkie could want: big explosions,car chases, big explosions, gun fights, big explosions, alienencounters, and big explosions. Did I mention the big explosions?Seriously though, "I Come In Peace" may not be a terribly original film(basically it's a buddy-cop action movie bolted together from pieces of"RoboCop," "The Terminator" and "Predator") but it is one heck of a funride. Lundgren plays Jack Caine, a tough-as-nails,kick-ass-first-and-ask-questions-later Houston police detective whogets caught up in the midst of an FBI murder investigation after hispartner is killed during a failed drug-sting operation. Not only wasCaine's partner murdered, but then so were the gangsters who did it --and by an unknown weapon that seems light years ahead of Earthtechnology. The viewer already knows that the culprit in these murdersis actually a hulking humanoid Alien (played by German actor MatthiasHues, a big nasty looking S.O.B. who dresses like he's in a Scorpionsvideo) who is running around the city, pumping unlucky Earthlings fullof stolen heroin and then sucking their brains dry just as they expire.Apparently drug-addled human brain juice is a powerful narcoticwherever this guy comes from. Hues has very little dialogue (basicallyhe repeats the phrase "I come in peace!" over and over again to hishapless victims), but that's OK because it gives the movie more roomfor the hilarious banter between Caine and Agent Smith (Brian Benben ofHBO's late 80s comedy series "Dream On"), a stick-in-the-mud,by-the-book FBI agent Caine is saddled with throughout theinvestigation. Of course, Caine and Smith start off hating each other'sguts but once they discover that their murderer is of extraterrestrialorigin, they bond, settle their professional differences, and team upto destroy it. In between, lots of stuff blows up, cars get smashed,people's throats get slit by a flying alien disc weapon that looks alot like a CD, and more stuff blows up. Seriously, this is one of themost pyrotechnic action movies I've ever seen. I'm not sure what thebudget was for this flick but I'm sure a good half of it must've goneto pay for explosives. Then again, director Craig R. Baxley is a formerstuntman and stunt coordinator, so he obviously knows a thing or twoabout crashin' stuff and blowin' it up real good.
In short, "I Come in Peace" is a 24-karat hoot. Unfortunately it's notcurrently available on DVD here in the U.S. but those of you in otherregions can supposedly find it easily on DVD under its alternate title,"Dark Angel." Until the U.S. is blessed with the same luck, used VHScopies can be found pretty much anywhere. Seek and enjoy.
