About the Movie

Two former government agents square off as they search for the most deadly new weapon on Earth in this white-knuckle thriller. Sever (Lucy Liu) was once a top agent with the Defense Intelligence Agency, but she quit when her son was killed in a bungled raid organized by Gant (Gregg Henry), and has sworn to take vengeance against him and his colleagues. When Sever learns that Gant and his team are in possession of a remarkable new weapon — a microscopic device injected into the victim's bloodstream which is benign until triggered, then kills immediately without leaving a trace — she is determined to get her hands on it, whatever the cost. However, Gant has turned rogue, and FBI agent Julio Martin (Miguel Sandoval) has been ordered to find him and recover his new weapon. Martin needs the best man he can find for the job, and calls upon Jeremiah Ecks (Antonio Banderas), a former FBI tracker, to do the job. Ecks quit the Bureau when his wife was killed, but Martin informs Ecks that his spouse is actually alive and in hiding, and if he can bring in Gant, she will be returned to him. But Ecks has to face the most formidable adversary of his life in Sever, a master of mayhem bent on revenge. Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever was the first English-language feature from Thai filmmaker Wych Kaosayananda (aka Kaos), whose first feature Fah was a box-office blockbuster in his homeland.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: For years, people have joked about an action movie that might eliminate plot altogether and simply cut to the pyrotechnics. Someone has finally done it. – Mike Clark, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Ballistic is a generic blur of metallic blue and fireball orange set to the contrapuntal sounds of throbbing techno and eardrum-puncturing noise. – Manohla Dargis, Los Angeles Times, Sep 15, 2014

Rotten: For many viewers, the big question may be not whether Ecks and Sever will get together, or why they are fighting in the first place, but why am I sitting here, anyway? – Jocelyn Noveck, Associated Press, Sep 15, 2014

Rotten: Two big things are missing -- anything approaching a visceral kick, and anything approaching even a vague reason to sit through it all. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Oct 2, 2002

This movie is a must see, It has tons of action and explosions and still touches your heart.

I actually liked this movie...

Enjoyed Lucy Liu as an action hero and contrary to RottenTomatoes, I thought the movie had a plot. The bike scene was impressively choreographed, directed and filmed.

Just entertainment Value
