EVE OF DE­STRUC­TION (1991)

Starburst Magazine - - Feed Back -

Renée Sou­tendijk may have had an iconic ap­pear­ance in this ‘90s video ‘clas­sic’, but it doesn’t stop the story of a sci­en­tist and her crew (led by Gre­gory Hines) track­ing down her an­droid/walk­ing bomb dop­pel­gänger be­fore it ex­plodes in the mid­dle of Los An­ge­les be­ing a com­plete dud. Re­mark­ably, it was made by MGM with a bud­get prob­a­bly higher than most of the films on this list put to­gether, but it still fails to ig­nite. The di­rec­tor Dun­can Gib­bins is bet­ter known for pop videos (in­clud­ing Ge­orge Michael’s Care­less Whis­per and Bana­narama’s Robert De Niro’s Wait­ing) and sadly died aged 41 af­ter suf­fer­ing 95% burns at­tempt­ing to res­cue his cat from a burn­ing build­ing. The cat was fine.
