I Come in Peace AKA Dark Angel (1990)

Recommended Posts

I remember seeing this movie during its VHS release in the early 1990s.

 

Dolph Lundgren vehicles are all over this forum, and for good reason.

 

Although it came out a few months earlier, this movie feels like a ripoff of Predator 2.

Like so many movies of its era, this movie is loaded with drug war tropes.

Compact disc technology plays a huge role in this film.

The bad guy has about one line in the movie that he repeats ad nauseum.

"Jack Kane: A cop who does things his own way..."

 

Oh, now I'm interested! Here I was thinking an action movie would have a cop who does things by the book.

I'm curious to see a movie where EVERY cop on the force is a cop that plays by his own rules. It'd either be the most awesome team ever assembled, as they seem to be the only guys that really know what's up in a regular movie, or it would be the clusterfuck to end all clusterfucks since they're so shitty at working with others. Then again, no one wants to see a movie where everyone follows the rules, does their job, and solves crimes in an efficient manner.

I think this direct quote from the actual movie says it all:

 

Bad Alien: I come in peace.

 

Dolph Lundgren aka Jack Caine: And you go in pieces, asshole.

I've not seen this movie since I was a kid, but from what I recall, it's kind of like Dolph Lundgren's version of Predator, except the alien looks like the lovechlid of 80's model Fabio and Rutger Hauer and instead of an insane arsenal of weaponry, he shoots CDs. Actual compact discs.
