| A decent, fun sci-fi action flick
This movie is a somewhat forgettable, but fun sci-fi stylized and pleasing action flick, with Bruce Willis at his typical 90-s action star performance and charm, and not to forget the charms of Milla Jovovich as an untameable feminine beast of alien origin. That, and cute, cool (literately fogging with frost) flying cars and some state of the day special effects. In short, if you want some light sci-fi action fun from the 90-s, this is an OK movie for you.
