"Millennium Crisis is a low budget amalgamation of Murnau's Nosferatu, Stoker's Dracula, The Fifth Element and Blade Runner with a little Star Wars thrown in for good measure. In other words, it's nowhere near original and does nothing to improve upon the concepts it takes inspiration from. The acting wasn't horrible but none of it stood out; not even Ted Raimi's presence or performance offered this film a boost. The action was boring, there wasn't enough real story to be interesting and the editing was poorly done. There were, however, some darn good looking women and a brief glimpse of nudity, unfortunately there was nowhere near the amount needed to warrant a second viewing for me.
Ultimately, Millennium Crisis fails to stand on its own two feet because so much of it was cribbed from better, more interesting, films. I suppose, considering the budget, the FX was tolerable but "just okay" FX on a poorly written, poorly edited film ends up coming across more like a cheap band-aid than a bonus. I can't honestly say I hated this or anything but I was far from impressed and more than likely won't be watching this again. I mean, real talk here, if I wanted to watch Dracula or The Fifth Element...I'll watch Dracula or The Fifth Element. Why bother watching a watered down, low budget knock-off when the real McCoys still deliver?

"In this sci fi adventure a shape shifting female alien fools
an ancient killing android and an nearly immortal vampire well enough
to escape having her soul drained.
She saves the universe from this ancient dreaded race
by assuming the shape of one of them for long enough to kill
the powerful alien.
The special effects and sets are pretty good and the plot and dialog aren't entirely bad, but it is definitely a 'B' sci fi with suggested sex and violence. It reminds me of some old space opera novels from the 50's
which isn't all bad..."
