In the movie I Come in Peace from 1990, Dolph Lundgren plays Jack Caine, a tough cop who is investigating a series of drug-related murders in Houston, Texas. Caine is a no-nonsense, anti-authoritarian cop who is not afraid to break the rules to get the job done. His partner in the investigation is a by-the-book cop named Arwood 'Larry' Smith, played by Brian Benben.

As the investigation progresses, Caine begins to believe that there is more to these murders than just drug-related violence. He becomes convinced that there is a violent alien criminal on the loose, smuggling a powerful and lethal drug called "white crystalline substance" into the city. Caine's suspicions are confirmed when he encounters the alien, who introduces himself as Talec, played by Matthias Hues, and who is on Earth to harvest endorphins from human brains for his own race.

Caine is initially skeptical of Talec's extraterrestrial origins, but soon discovers that his partner has been implanted with a small device that Talec uses to extract endorphins from his brain. Caine must race against time to stop Talec from harming any other humans and to prevent his own partner from being killed.

As Caine delves deeper into Talec's plans, he discovers that the alien has been working with a local drug lord named Victor Manning, played by Michael J. Pollard. Manning has been helping Talec to smuggle the white crystalline substance into the city and has been reaping the profits of the drug trade in return. Caine must face off against Manning's goons and eventually confront Talec in a deadly showdown.

The film features several intense action scenes, including a memorable car chase through the streets of Houston and a final battle between Caine and Talec. Lundgren delivers a solid performance as the tough-as-nails cop, while Benben provides some much-needed comic relief as Caine's uptight partner. Hues is suitably menacing as the alien criminal, and Brantley plays the role of the love interest, coroner Bruce, with a charming quirkiness.

Overall, I Come in Peace is a fun and campy action movie that delivers plenty of thrills and sci-fi intrigue. It's not a masterpiece of the genre, but it's an enjoyable watch that should satisfy fans of Lundgren, action movies, and cheesy '80s and '90s sci-fi flicks.
