I saw this again early this morning on the MGM channel and it still holds up. Renee Soutendijk is a scientist who creates a female cyborg in her image, the cyborg intrudes on a bank robbery, is shot and goes haywire, targeting bad guys with a blast from her seemingly endless supply of bullets in what looks like an Uzi machine pistol and the late great Gregory Hines as an army general is tasked to take this cyborg without an off-switch down as she is now targeting her creator's family.

The best line: Hines chewing out his soldiers thus: "You're all dead, and each would have an epitaph saying 'He died for his country because he didn't [expletive deleted] listen!"  TeddyR TeddyR

The weird thing about the director of this film (Duncan Gibbins) is that his films always featured fire and explosions in one form or another (in fact, one of his films was called Fire With Fire) and he died in a fire in 1993.  Buggedout

Wow! I haven't thought about this movie in years. I actually saw "Eve of Destruction" during its theatrical run in the U.S. ... judging by its fast fade from the box office at the time, I think I must be one of only a few dozen people who can make that claim.  TeddyR

I honestly don't remember much about it except that Renee Soudtenijk (or however you spell it) was pretty hot, a lotta stuff blew up, and that the robo-chick didn't take kindly to being called a "B**ch." So yeah, I was entertained.  Haha.

     THIS Network has been running it lately; may give it a look. It was much better than others of its type, 4-X, HANDS OF STEEL.

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

Not just better but I found Renee Soutendijk  hot in that film, even when she was spraying people with bullets.  TeddyR

That was one of the main reasons I went to see that movie in the theatre, and one of the few things I remember about it.

If memory serves, "Eve" was expected to make Renee into a big star in the U.S... So much for that.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
