Though the jokey lines seem out of place, the somber tone of this 1998 action movie makes the political subtext more sincere and less grandiose than usual.

The last blast of the summer is an exuberantly cheesy action opus featuring Jean-Claude Van Damme and Rob Schneider as an improbable pair of gung-ho heroes.

Suffice it to say that it plays exceptionally badly in English.

Jean-Claude Van Damme and Rob Schneider star. If you need more of a review than that, go ahead and give it a rental.

The fact that hardly anything makes sense in the film didn't discourage Tsui Hark.

The immediate reaction after seeing this movie aims to match it with a more appropriate title modeled from the direction and acting: Jack Off.

Knock Off could not be much worse if it tried to be.

Alternately the best and the worst action movie ever made, and it ends up being one big uneven mess.

The plot is as incomprehensible as the dubbing, and many of the special effects are neither special nor effective.

Almost worth attending for the experience of seeing how low film makers can sink in their never-ending quest to bilk the action picture audience out of a few hard-earned dollars.

Action-packed, cheesy, and not worthy of the Academy's attention, but, for those so inclined, it is worth the rental price.

Jean Claude Van Damme's recent string of films haven't been too inspiring, and Knock Off doesn't do anything to change the trend.

Bumbles and fumbles its way through a messy plot, advancing from each dreary subplot to the next with no hint of a coherent storyboard.

Most of the crowd simply walked out briskly, shaking their heads and loudly discussing how amazingly bad the film was. These people renewed my faith in humanity.
