You've seen it before, so why bother seeing Jean-Claude Van Damme go through the paces in this straight-to-tape howler?

Oscar-winning director John Avildsen wisely removed his name in favor of a pseudonym on this forgettable direct-to-video Van Damme vehicle.

Audience Reviews for Desert Heat (Inferno)
