Movie Info

This $17 million direct-to-video production by Hong Kong director Ringo Lam is the story of a fire-obsessed serial killer (Jean-Claude Van Damme) and the recently retired cop (Michael Rooker) intent on stopping him. After finding his hair follicle at a crime scene, a secret government agency clones the killer in the hopes that the replicant will aid in the search. Although he's full-grown, the clone (also played by Van Damme) has the emotional and mental capacity of a young child. Soon the na´ve

The action sequences are well staged and credit where credit is due: The 40-year-old martial artist still has the physical goods, executing 180 splits and gymnastic stunts with the grace and apparent ease of someone much younger.

Slightly less awful than most of Van Damme's efforts.

Low budget and low thought exploration of promising idea

Replicant doesn't even come close to some of Van Damme's better flicks (Timecop and Sudden Death), but it's certainly an improvement over what he's been up to lately.

I was surprised to find "Replicant" wasn't too bad at all.

People looking for a movie that offers conversational debate on a controversial dilemma should look beyond this one-dimensional decoy.

The whole trying affair is irresistibly dopey. Kinetic, too.

Preposterous thriller stars Jean-Claude Van Damme not once but twice, playing a clone of himself. The original Van Damme is a vicious serial killer terrorising Seattle. The second Van Damme is a clone of the killer, created with the hopes of being used to track down the original. It plays as silly as it sounds, a sci-fi rehash of several genres with as much flair and excitement as dead grass. The production values are higher, but the acting and script are direct-to-video masterpiece.

What can I say, I'm a sucker for Ringo Lam movies. He does a good job on this one and the story is compelling. With this, Hard Target and In Hell I'm shocked I like as many Van Damme movies as I do.
