Movie Info

Jean-Claude Van Damme proves that two cracked heads are better than one in Double Impact. Van Damme plays twins Chad and Alex, who were separated at birth when their parents were brutally murdered by members of a Hong Kong criminal cartel. Incredibly both Chad and Alex have grown up to become world-class martial arts experts. Chad is a snobbish Californian karate instructor, while Alex is a cigar-smoking smuggler in Hong Kong. The two are brought back together by the family bodyguard Frank Avery

Van Damme was never great with drama, lousy with the English language, but put the man in tight pants and surround him with Asian stuntmen, and there's pure joy to be had.

Bonecrushingly stupid - but one of Van Demme's better efforts.

Audience Reviews for Double Impact

Double Van Damme means double the fun and excitement. One of his best action films. Jean-Claude Van Damme brings on strong star power as the two main leads and hammers home some great action sequences. An exhilarating and adrenaline-pumping action-packed thrill-ride. It's smart, funny, thrilling and heart-pounding from start to finish. Loads of fist, kicks and explosive fire power. Action dose not get better or hotter than this.

Despite Martial Arts films and a few of JCVD's films being guilty pleasures of mine, this one is definitely not. The twin thing has been done many times previous to this and whlst most JCVD films have a similar kind of theme, revenge over somebody close etc, this one lacked in anything new Martial Arts-wise, a little too much show boating instead of skill.
