A good cop on a tough beat, Jack Caine (Dolph Lundgren) thought he'd dealt with every kind of crime on earth. But now, someone is using human bodies to manufacture narcotics. Someone - or something - not of this world. To the alien, humans represent ideal drug factories. The process is simple, the drugs are perfect, and it doesn't matter that people die. To detective Caine, the alien represents mankind's worst threat. If his mission succeeds, his comrades follow - and the planet will be destroyed. How do you fight the most powerful evil on earth? Any may you can - and with everything you've got. Along with his straight-arrow FBI partner, Laurence Smith (Brian Benben), and his girlfriend, city coroner Diane Pallone (Betsy Brantley), Caine is going to send this alien home in pieces...or die trying!
A great 90's sci-fi action film

Dark Angel is an exciting sci-fi action thriller with a good plot and some great action sequences. Dolph Lundgren plays Jack Kane, a streetwise cop who teams up with an FBI agent to apprehend an alien drug dealer, who murders his victims and at the point of near death sucks the endorphins from their brains to trade on the intergalactic drug market. All in all, 'Dark Angel' is a product of the early 90's, so don't expect anything too cutting edge, but there's plenty of action and overall the film moves along a good pace, add in some cool weapons and it's a fun popcorn flick for sci-fi action fans, and if you liked sci-fi classics like 'Enemy Mine' and 'Alien Nation' then this is recommended viewing!
