If you like Jean-Claude's movies, this might be tolerable. If not, stay away ... stay far, far away!

Van Damme should have stuck to the martial-arts flicks

Audience Reviews for Death Warrant

Death Warrant is another typical 80's- early 90's action flick. It's cliche to a fault. The dialog is beyond campy, the action is a bit cheesy, and the plot is fairly predictable.

Jean Claude Van Dame is one pretty cool dude. I wish he could've done more work in today's industry. He round house kicks his way through every bad guy in the prison. Very typical JCVD...

I can't recommend this... but if you like his work or enjoy martial arts/action movies, then this is entertaining enough.

Jean-Claude Van Damme faces his biggest challenge in a maximum security prison with great death-defying stunts and non-stop martial arts wizardry.
