Dark Angel
a.k.a "I Come in Peace"

plot summary

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...

interesting fact
It has first been released internationally as "Dark Angel", which couldn't be used in the US because of the existence of an older movie with the same title, says exec producer Mark Damon. so it was then renamed "I Come In Peace" for the sole North American market (where it was released last).

memorable lines
(Bad Alien) I come in peace.
(Jack Caine) Then you go in pieces, asshole.

webmaster's opinion
A very entertaining flick. Paired up with the Martin from "Dream On" (Brian Benben), Dolph plays a tough cop on the trail of some bad-ass drug dealer from outer space (sounds odd, yeah, but wait till you see what the drug is). The movie is of the "buddy-buddy cop" genre, with lots of humour and big action scenes. Definitely worth checking out...
