Waxman is a former Special Forces soldier who is now working as a heavily armed assassin for a top secret government agency. When a covert mission goes terribly wrong, Waxman and fellow assassin Clegg become that agency's prime targets.
When a terrorist group steals the US President's personal communications computer for launching the US arsenal in case of war, only a heroic Major has the key to prevent a Presidential assassination or a nuclear holocaust.
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...Written by
Since the film's release there have been several attempts at a sequel. In 1995 or 1996, Harv Zimmel got the job of writing the script for a sequel that didn't include any of the characters from the first film. His script was about a down-on-his-luck police detective who is investigating mysterious disappearances of people in a coastal California town. He joins up with a female Interpol agent who is working on the same case, and during the story it would be revealed that she is an alien who is hunting after another female alien responsible for those disappearances. Although the producers thought that the script was really good, they couldn't get the budget for it and there were also some rights issues with the first film. Craig R. Baxley was approached to make the sequel around that same time but he refused because the budget would be only $3 million. See more »

You've got to like 80's Sci-Fi to really appreciate movies like this. I rank it right up there with Terminator, Hawk The Slayer, The Guyver, Highlander, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for good, hilarious sci-fi fun.
No, I don't think the mainstream public would like a movie like this, but if you like B-rated horror movies & sci-fi, then you should find this one to your liking too. Beastmaster, Krull, and many other movies from that era come to mind when I see this one.
Wonder if it's available on DVD yet....nope. Darn. Maybe one day.
8 out of 10 stars.
