| Original Score: 1/5
This is the kind of movie that is so witlessly generic that the plot and title disappear into a mist of other recycled plots and interchangeable titles.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Except for a few short bursts here and there, and one extended scene during the climax, the film is mostly talk. And since Van Damme's range as a dramatic actor is marginal at best, this is a problem.
| Original Score: 2/4
A relentlessly corny and shamelessly derivative vehicle.
| Original Score: 2/5
While it boasts better supporting actors and technical credits than other Van Damme projects, the film nonetheless founders, a victim of its own lugubrious pace and misguided efforts at turning the bulging Belgian into a romantic lead.
The best aspect of Nowhere to Run is some inventive camera work from director Robert Harmon. Too bad he didn't have a better script to work with.
Several members of the Astor Plaza audience yesterday afternoon could not contain their merriment when, in the middle of the film, Mr. Van Damme's character identified himself as a lawyer.
| Original Score: D
Van Damme hits a high-note for once
| Original Score: 3/5
When Van Damme is doing what he does best -- narcissistically displaying his body and thumping the bad guys -- the film works reasonably well.
All in all, it is a pretty good action film and it could be a breakthrough for Van Damme.
| Original Score: 3/4
If you don't expect much (and the developer vs. land owner plot is ridiculous) you may be surprised at what's here.
