DARK ANGEL (aka I COME IN PEACE, 1990)
Dolph Lundgren plays a cop who’s on a mission to clean up the streets of Houston of the drug dealers who killed his partner. Unfortunately for him, the main new threat isn’t local – in fact, he’s an alien who has a large needle attached to his hand to shoot people in the head with heroin. Not the most obvious of ripoffs, but certainly takes a massive influence. Director Craig R. Baxley was responsible for the classic Carl Weathers film Action Jackson.
