    Synopsis


    I Come in Peace
    I Come in Peace is a silly, derivative science fiction exploitation thriller which is a triumph of style and skillful direction, despite a plot that steals elements from numerous good films and mixes them with some appallingly bad acting. Jack Caine (Dolph Lundgren) is a not-by-the books police officer investigating the death of several people, including his partner, by a gang called the "White Boys." All the victims seemed to have died of drug overdoses, but Jack thinks that there is something more sinister afoot. His investigation reveals a plot by aliens who use the bodies to extract a chemical that is sold to addicts on their home planet. Originally entitled Dark Angel, I Come in Peace, while silly and confusing, has great production values and some excellent special effects. The main reason to see this film is because of the expert direction by former stunt-man Craig Baxley who manages to keep the action moving at a fast pace and tie up the loose ends of the threadbare story. The cinematography by Mark Irwin is outstanding and shows that imagination and a good visual sense can overcome a limited budget and a bad plot. ~ Linda Rasmussen, Rovi

      Underrated!!!

      This sci fi flick is underrated, to say the least. In fact, it’s among my list of favorite movies. For many years this wasn’t available on DVD or Blu-ray in the USA. I only had it on a very old VHS tape -- that is, until Shout! Factory *finally* released it here in 2014. The explanation of this movie in the description is so very wrong, and doesn't do it justice. This is an excellent flick: great acting (one of Dolph Lundgren’s best with him as the lead), great writing & story, and great “real” effects, before (the much faker looking) CGI. Another thing I really liked is this DVD has a reversible cover: one with the European "Dark Angel" cover, and the other with the North American "I Come in Peace" cover. I highly prefer the "I Come in Peace" title, as it fits the story more. The title "Dark Angel" not only doesn't fit the story as much, but that title's been used in too many other things (a band, 2 older movies, & a TV series). Lastly, this Blu-ray is a nice, clean transfer, with some good interviews on Special Features. Do yourselves a favor: get this before it’s not available in the USA for another 20 years.

      An old school action classic. I've been waiting for this one for a long time indeed. Action Icon Dolph Lundgren stars as Detective Jack Cain, A hard boiled cop that is determined to find justice for his fallen partner., He is forced to team up with a by the book FBI agent (Brian Benben) & they come across a case that is literally out of this world. If you love action, sci-fi, then this film is right up your alley.

      Such a great, classic film starring Dolph Lundgren and that guy from Dream On. Looks crisp on the new blu-ray transfer, with some good special features. The paper insert can be flipped to show the original title/artwork, which is nice. Such a hard movie to find!

      I saw this movie when I was 18 and liked it a lot. Now that I'm 36 I don't enjoy it as much. Dolph Lundgren is a very generic character in this. I like him in Showdown in Little Toyko much better. The bad guy is kinda cool but really doesn't do much. I was disappointed in this

      The Best Dolf Lundgren Movie

      Dolf Lundgren is at his best here in a buddy cop movie that turns into stopping an alien from turning Earth into a drug lab. I remember seeing this when it was called "I Come In Peace" on TV, and now glad to own this title.

      This movie is an unknown gem in my opinion. I wouldn't say it should be part of everyone's movie collection, but after watching it on TV enough times, I had to have it. It's more commonly known as 'I Come in Peace'. The concept behind the plot is actually interesting, and the cast is fun.
