Critic Reviews for Assassination Games
As the star of Assassination Games, Jean-Claude Van Damme makes a lot of great decisions. As the executive producer, he appears to have made fewer.
Assassination Games doesn't fully exploit -- in, say, the manner in which Sylvester Stallone's Rocky Balboa did -- the age and earned maturity of its leading man.
Audience Reviews for Assassination Games
This explosive action flick hits the bulls-eye, anybody who loves action movies should see this movie. I absolutely loved it. An exhilarating and adrenaline-charged action-packed edge of your seat thriller. A strong, compelling, gripping and emotionally engaging movie. A pure knockout. A wickedly cool and tremendously awesome ride with a strong story and great characters. It`s sharp, smart, funny and packed with heart-stopping thrills from start to finish. An explosively entertaining film with a traditional western style feel to it, it feels like a modern-day and highly stylized version of For A Few Dollars More. Scott Adkins and Jean-Claude Van Damme are at their best, these two sensational action stars pack great physical skill and intense star power. Van Damme gives a great and gritty performance, as he gets older the more compelling he is to watch. Adkins is riveting, he truly is one of the most gifted action stars of his generation and also just a gifted actor. Adkins and Van Damme have great chemistry that shows with great character development.
Do we need to say guns, blood, explosions again? What if we try this: the art direction if flawless. And the bodycount is Awe-sum!!! I really like Jean-Claude Van Damme and Scott Adkin's chemistry together. This is well directed and shot.
One is fighting to assassinate his target because of love, fighting to try and bring justice for his wife. The second is the opposite. Everything thing is about work, and he is just doing a job. Vincent (Van Damme) becomes more open to love throughout the film, as you see the change from the start to the end, and that was a good believable story.
Can't wait to see Van Damme and Adkin reunite again (at the third time) in the upcoming 2012 movie, The Expendables 2.
Straight to DVD yet actually a pretty good action thriller for once from Mr Van Damme, his new best mate in action Scott Adkins joins in for the ride and this time they are on the same side to battle some fat guy that looks like he just stepped off a 70's porn set.
The film appears to be in sepia for allot of the action which is odd but looks quite nice, at first I thought there was something wrong (maybe there was haha) but it does seem to be like that for some reason. There isn't allot of martial arts fighting either I must reveal, we don't see Van Damage going on much, some fighting but nothing special, same for Adkins too, this is mainly a film about hitmen taking out targets swiftly but we do get one fast punch up with the two main men.
Nothing terribly new here, same old stuff but it is better than most run of the mill action films from JCVD and it looks like it was actually made well with some care and not as tacky as these films can be.
