Van Damme calls his film 'the Ben-Hur of martial arts'; boy, is he deluded.

At its best in its first half, when Dubois has to find his way to the competition in the Lost City of Tibet.

More a study in worldwide combat than a tribute to Van Damme's ascension as a director.

With the same grace and discipline that he displays in front of the camera, Jean-Claude Van Damme makes a socko directorial debut.

Interesting only for being so totally familiar, even if you've never seen another film about a Ghan-Gheng martial-arts match in an ancient Lost City in Tibet.

The level of high-tension violence expected from a Van Damme film is blunted by poor direction, uninspired camera work, and a bland villain.

A speedy and rousing adventure, chock-full of exciting -- if unlikely -- events and swarming with colorful characters in colorful locations.
| Original Score: 3/5

In his first outing, it is unclear whether VanDamme can't manage the scope of this tale, or if he's just a bad director.

Unless bone-crunching violence is your bag, you can bag this one.
