Jason versus I Come In Peace

A long, long time ago in a Basement far, far away, I loved the hell out of this Dolph Lundgren movie. Come on, cops versus alien drug dealers!?! It was so 1990s! Does the flick hold up today? Stick with me!

OK, OK. It does. Yes, the movie shows its age. Lundgren still had the black hair he adopted for The Punisher, Brian Benben looked all of about five, and Betsy Brantley was mighty fine . . . and spunky. And the whole drug angle. Drugs just aren't good villains in Y2K plus 13.

Fortunately most of the one liners haven't aged a day and director Craig R. Baxley's flair for style and action haven't diminished with time. More things blow up in I Come In Peace, AKA Dark Angel, than in the first 30 minutes of an average action flick. If you like to watch shit explode, this is the movie for you!

I can't add much more. I've watched I Come In Peace a bazillion times now and I don't get tired of it, even after a 20-year break. It's a Good, no matter how you slice it.
