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

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

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.
