Prophet is a 1999 action movie directed by Fred Olen Ray and starring Don Wilson, Barbara Steele, Alexander Keith, and Paul Michael Robinson. Set in the year 2004, the movie follows the story of a US Army soldier named Jack Kilmore (Don Wilson), who is tasked with protecting a highly advanced android named R.J. (Alexander Keith) from falling into the wrong hands.

R.J. is designed to be the ultimate weapon, with advanced artificial intelligence that allows it to learn and adapt at an unprecedented pace. However, when the military base where R.J. is being developed is attacked by a terrorist organization, Jack is forced to evacuate the android and go on the run.

On the run, Jack meets a scientist named Dr. Nora Hunter (Barbara Steele), who helps him discover the true potential of R.J. Together, they embark on a journey to reunite R.J. with his creator and prevent the android from being used for destruction.

Throughout the movie, Jack and R.J. are forced to fight against numerous enemies, including skilled assassins and corrupt government agents. The action scenes are intense and well-choreographed, with Don Wilson bringing his signature martial arts skills to the forefront.

Despite the movie's action-heavy focus, there are also moments of quieter character development. Jack struggles with guilt for his past mistakes and finds redemption through his relationship with R.J. Meanwhile, Dr. Hunter grapples with the ethical implications of creating an android with such advanced intelligence.

The movie also features a standout performance from Alexander Keith as R.J. Despite being a machine, R.J. is imbued with a sense of humanity that makes him a sympathetic character. He expresses awe and wonder at the world around him, and his childlike curiosity endears him to both Jack and Dr. Hunter.

Barbara Steele also delivers a strong performance as Dr. Hunter, who is both intelligent and compassionate. Her character serves as a moral compass for the group, and the scenes between her and R.J. are some of the movie's most touching.

Overall, Prophet is an entertaining action movie that manages to balance its explosive set pieces with moments of emotional resonance. Don Wilson delivers a solid performance as the stoic soldier with a heart of gold, and the supporting cast helps make the movie's world feel fleshed out and believable.

While it may not be the most groundbreaking or original movie of its genre, Prophet is a fun, well-made action movie that delivers exactly what it promises: thrilling action, memorable characters, and a satisfying conclusion.
