Movie Reviews

(1 out of 5 stars)

"THE VECTOR FILE offers us Casper van Dien (Starship Troopers, Python) as a geologist in New Zealand, recently separated from his wife (Catherine Oxenberg), and a good father to his daughter (India Oxenberg). Now, van Dien does better than one would expect but his performance cannot save this muddled, dull and illogical "thriller."
The only convincing thing is the lush and beautiful New Zealand scenery.
The film opens with a Russian somebody chewing his nails in front of his computer. He obviously is doing something he shouldn't. Voila! Three nasty agents (including one British accented lovely) bust in and tell him to stop his computer. He is sending an e-mail file to someone. He refuses and he is of course killed.
Flash to van Dien in New Zealand, a geologist who works at a place that also has a satellite dish which communicates with the several satellites in outer space. He takes his daughter to work and while she is doing horse pictures on the PC, the e-mail that the Russian sent is downloaded. The little girl is perplexed because she wants to print a copy of her horsie picture, but instead she prints out the 60+ page e-mail and when her dad comes in she stuffs it into her schoolbag, afraid he might spank her or something. Now, why was this e-mail sent to a geologist in New Zealand?
Pretty soon, the nasty agents appear in New Zealand and want that e-mail. We find out later the e-mail is a DNA code that mimics small pox, and could be sold to hostile nations for global biological warfare. Or something like that.
From then on out, the nasties set up van Dien by killing a security guard and then they for some inexplicable reason turn on the female lovely, kill her and frame van Dien again.
Van Dien grunts runs and fights like any good geologist would, and the movie careens to its utterly predictable ending.
The screenwriters have offered little explanation for van Dien's involvement, and when they try, they fail miserably. We never now who the girl agent was supposed to be.
Both Oxenbergs share the lack of any real acting talent and the pace is sluggish and soporific.
Not a good movie at all--even for Casper's friends."

"I'm into action and adventure, the more going on the better. I found this a tad dull, I enjoyed the cast of characters, and even the story plot. But it was slow for my taste. However, it works for a rainy afternoon's entertainment. A bit of violence and language is about as risque as it gets."
