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 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.

For hardcore Van Damme and Sparks fans only.

The plot is as incomprehensible as the dubbing, and many of the special effects are neither special nor effective.

One of Van Damme's best movies ever.

Almost worth attending for the experience of seeing how low film makers can sink in their never-ending quest to bilk the action picture audience out of a few hard-earned dollars.

Something of a kaleidoscopic mess of a movie, but it has its moments.

Was a film ever more appropriately titled than Knock Off?

You've never seen so many pointlessly contrived optical effects shots in your life.
