Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever is a 2002 American action film starring Antonio Banderas and Lucy Liu. Liu and Banderas play opposing secret agents who are supposedly enemies, but team up during the movie. The film was universally panned by critics, who generally regarded it as having no redeeming features, not even the comedic value normally associated with bad films. It is often listed among the worst movies ever made. In March 2007, the movie review site Rotten Tomatoes ranked the film #1 among "The Worst of the Worst" movie list, with 108 "rotten" reviews and no "fresh" ones. Financially, the film was also a box office failure, recouping just over $19.9 million of its $70 million budget.

Michael, the son of Robert Gant (Gregg Henry), director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), is kidnapped when he returns home from a trip to Berlin, despite a heavily armed DIA escort. The kidnapper is a Chinese woman named Sever (Lucy Liu). Former FBI agent Jeremiah Ecks (Antonio Banderas) is asked by his old boss to investigate the case. He realises that the kidnapper must be one of the Chinese girls the DIA adopts and trains as agents. Sever is pursued by FBI agents and by DIA agents lead by Ross (Ray Park).
Ecks discovers that Gant stole a dangerous nanobot assassin, which operates in the human circulatory system. Gant had placed the nanobot in his son's body in order to smuggle it to North America.
Robert Gant is married to Vinn (Talisa Soto), who was previously married to Ecks. It is revealed that Gant separated Vinn and Ecks by staging the death (by car bomb) of each of them to the other; Vinn was officially declared dead and had a closed-casket funeral attended by Ecks. Gant had also killed the husband and child of his colleague Sever (Lucy Liu), who subsequently kidnapped Gant's son to take revenge. However, it turns out that it is not Gant, but Ecks, who is the father of the child.
A final battle happens near an old railroad station. There, Ross and Gant confront Ecks and Sever. Gant tries to bargain with Sever, but Sever is sure that it is too late. A long gunfight follows, with Ecks and Sever blasting DIA agents and SWAT teams. Ecks and Sever manage to beat the SWAT teams and swarms of agents. Sever then gets in a one-on-one fight with Ross. She eventually wins the fight and kills Gant, too. After local police and FBI agents arrive, they find no evidence of Sever being there. Ecks reunites with his family.
