His second best martial arts fest, the same kinda story as 'Bloodsport' with the same kinda revenge subplot and the same kinda outcome, but its great fun. Watching JCVD get there through some excellent training scenes/tests whilst we learn of criminal activity behind the scenes in a typically classic 80's way is just sheer joy.

The cast again is a good mix of west/east and if you look closely many are part of JCVD's stable of faces that are reused in a few of his old martial arts adventures.

Of course its 100% predictable and virtually plays out in exactly the same way as 'Bloodsport'. The fights all look decent and realistic accept for the final showdown perhaps, some nice music accompanies and a great performance from Dennis Chan as 'Xiao'.

This in reality is around a 2-2.5 star movie but I love Van Damme. Time to Muy Thai.
