Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
One of 2002's most action-packed films, this ultra-stylish thriller owes much of its appeal to the pairing of Antonio Banderas and Lucy Liu, who invest their stock characters with attitude and charisma to spare. Banderas is Jeremiah Ecks, a former FBI ace coaxed out of retirement after losing his wife and going to pieces. Liu is Sever, a rogue Defense Intelligence Agency operative intent on killing a onetime comrade, Gant Gregg Henry, who is looking for a top-secret weapon that might have fallen into the wrong hands. The action unfolds in and around Vancouver, visualized by director Wych "Kaos" Kaosayananda as a bleak, grayish metropolis illuminated mainly by the explosions that occur with metronomic regularity: Ballistic is nothing if not a grandly appointed shoot-'em-up. Elaborate action set pieces flash across the screen every few minutes, and sequences involving hand-to-hand combat are extremely well choreographed. The stars do many of their own stunts, and Liu's martial arts training makes her exceptionally convincing in the fight scenes. She makes Sever an enigmatic opponent whose motivations are always suspect, and Banderas's brooding sensuality takes on an air of melancholy as he pursues her. Ballistic is wildly improbable, but it offers so much slam-bang action that few will pause to question its believability. For expertly staged mayhem and edge-of-the-seat thrills, it can hardly be beat.

    No sense At all!

    There are three simple rules that I will tell you about making a martial arts film: 1. If the director is calls himself Kaos, that is what the result will be. 2. If you have Ray Park (Star Wars' Darth Maul), Most of his screen time should be fighting. 3. If the story itself makes no sense, then you better fill most of it with mind blowing fighting. This film failed to do any of that. Is it one of the worst movies ever? The answer is Yes. The story has no plot at all. It even has bad acting from people I would have considered to be good actors. And the fight scenes, the awful fight scenes. What you see in the commercial is pretty much all the film will show you. And what they show you is the only good parts of the fight scenes. They are poorly cheorographed and are not at all entertaining. The film is just a waste of time.

    forget it

    This is the worst movie I've ever seen. The story is filled with so many holes, by the middle you just don't know what's going on and why - it's just a medley of explosions.
