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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 9, 2006
Reuniting Hyams and Van Damme, director and star of Timecop, this spectacular nail-biter exploits their combined, if limited, abilities to the full.
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.

Gets a lot of mileage out of the well-worn trapped-in-a-blank-full-of-hostages action genre.
| Original Score: 3/5
July 14, 2003
Fun Die Hard knockoff that uses the stadium for all its worth. The mascot fight is a highlight.
| Original Score: 3/5
May 20, 2003
Offers above-average pyrotechnics, a body count that steadily mounts, and plenty of hand-to-hand combat.
May 14, 2003
A mildly satisfying high-energy romp complete with outstanding professional hockey footage and intense physical confrontations.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
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.

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.

June 5, 2002
An exciting if often predictable reteaming of Timecop star Jean-Claude Van Damme and director Peter Hyams.

The movie is state-of-the-art, over-the-top, non-stop Hollywood hokum. And that's meant as a compliment, too.
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.
January 1, 2000
Sudden Death isn't about common sense. It's about the manipulation of action and special-effects sequences to create a thriller effect, and at that it's pretty good.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
January 1, 2000
Though the climactic duel atop the arena roof is patently absurd, it's also exciting as events go into sudden-death overtime, just like the game being played below.
