In Babylon A.D Hong Kong action icon Michelle Yeoh stars alongside American muscle Vin Diesel in this science fiction thriller concerning a nun who is charged with the task of caring for a young girl who may be the carrier of a deadly virus. He is a Verteran- turned- mercenary Toorop, he takes this high risk job of escorting this girl with the virus from Russia to America. If this virus gets out, it could be fatal for the world. She is the host to an organism that a cult wants to harvest in order to produce a genetically modified Messiah. Based on author Maurice Dantec's Babylon Babies, this tale of genetic manipulation comes to the screen courtesy of director Mathieu Kassovitz.

Metacritic Score

  • 40

    Los Angeles Times

    This is not a terrible movie, but it's too familiar by half and too confusing by a third.

  • 40

    Variety

    A noisier, costlier version of "Children of Men," yet lacking that film's social-political significance and jaw-dropping direction.

  • 20

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    Our judgments, in any case, may be superfluous, since the director, Mathieu Kassovitz, has already publicly described it as "pure violence and stupidity."
