Movie Info

A former Desert Storm special forces soldier is assigned the task of protecting a retired World Heavyweight champion turned powerful entrepreneur when the thuggish rap mogul he put behind bars comes gunning for revenge in this bullet-riddled action entry starring Jean-Claude Van Damme and Vivica A. Fox. When Wayne Barclay testified against music industry heavy Terrell Singletery (Viv Leacock), he made an enemy for life. Now Terrell is being released from prison, and his time behind bars has only fueled his hunger for revenge. Vengeance won't come easy for this embittered ex-con though, because when Philip Sauvage (Van Damme) sets up a special team of vicious fighters and former soldiers to protect Barclay, the determined thug is will be forced to defeat a seasoned team of warriors with enough combat experience to wage a small war.more

Critic Reviews for The Hard Corps

All Critics (2)

The Hard Corps is more grounded than most in its genre, and has a ring of truth to it.

Full Review… | August 15, 2006

...there's simply no denying that the film feels like a return to form for the Muscles from Brussels.

Audience Reviews for The Hard Corps

This is the second film of Van Damme and Vivica A. Fox since Knock Off. Great high-powered action-thriller like The Bodyguard.

Dean McKenna

Super Reviewer

As Jean Claude Van Damme movies go...This wasn't half bad, but it continues his downward slide into the world of non A-List movies"

This one is fairly recent, and surprisingly interesting, as it's much more of an intense drama than a full on actioner, and he handles himself well, and his chemistry with Vivica A. Fox is good, and their relationship, the center of the movie, is pretty real, and the other character's reactions to it all work well. The bit of action that is in it work well enough, if a little dry. The music has moments that seem rather inspired, but others that felt flat and cliched.
