Reuniting Hyams and Van Damme, director and star of Timecop, this spectacular nail-biter exploits their combined, if limited, abilities to the full.
May 20, 2003
Offers above-average pyrotechnics, a body count that steadily mounts, and plenty of hand-to-hand combat.

Sudden Death is one of the best action thrillers of 1995. It's also the film Jean-Claude Van Damme has been building up to for 10 years.
May 12, 2001
Despite the elaborate stunts, go-go-go direction from Peter Hyams, plus butt-kicking and surprise goalie action from Van Damme, Death deserves the hockey-puck booby prize for...getting its jollies by putting kids in jeopardy.
February 13, 2001
A treat for Jean-Claude Van Damme fans, a superior action thriller loaded with jaw-dropping stunts and special effects, and strong in production values.

Tripe, but hard not to enjoy.
January 5, 2017
An especially blatant Die Hard knockoff...

Good clean fun, with just the right ratio of explosions to dialogue.

Van Damme is at his butt-kicking best, with Sudden Death offering all the thrills, spills and stuff blowing up that action fans relish.
November 12, 2005
The best of the many Die Hard rip-offs made during the 1990s. Sudden Death is a thrilling rollercoaster ride of hard-edged action.

Wooden-as-ever Van Damme is no Bruce Willis, unfunny main bad guy Powers Boothe is no Alan Rickman, and uninspired director Peter Hyams is no John McTiernan.

Gets a lot of mileage out of the well-worn trapped-in-a-blank-full-of-hostages action genre.
July 14, 2003
Fun Die Hard knockoff that uses the stadium for all its worth. The mascot fight is a highlight.
May 14, 2003
A mildly satisfying high-energy romp complete with outstanding professional hockey footage and intense physical confrontations.
April 20, 2003
I'm surprised not only that there wasn't a lawsuit over the film, but also by how watchable the film is (though it truly is bad, it's fun at least).
April 3, 2003
Works as entertaining mix of good action and unintended comedy, but the viewers won't enjoy it today as much as they did in 1995.
