Good fun. Not as much kick ass, as I would have liked but a decent action flick. A serious twitch off Lela Rochon.

Sitcom worthy plotting and hammy one liners but the action scenes are damn impressive. Low budget 80s/90's action somehow holds up better than the action movies of today.

Turn off your brain and you'll enjoy it. Regardless, it's hard to cope up with the damage this movie has done.

Seriously. People critics need to watch these movies before they rate them. At minimum this film is clever and looks like the cast and crew had a blast making it I think Van Dam gets whipped in the ass with an eel while running a rickshaw.

Given this a 2 cause Rob Schneider added some comedy worth laughing at.

The entire film is so idly written and edited together that it's as senseless as its title suggests.

Director Tsui Hark Teams Up With Van Damme For A Second Time In Knock Off. This Somewhat Of A Slow-Burner See's Knock Off King Gone Straight Marcus Ray Team Up With The CIA To Bust A Bomb Smuggling Ring. Written By Steven E. De Souza (Die Hard, Street Fighter) & Directed By Top Chinese Director Tsui Hark, You Would Think This Film Would Be A Lot Better Than What It Actually Is, The Result However Is A Decently Entertaining Action Flick, Which Sadly Features The American Style Of Action Sequences.

Sloppily inspired, otherworldly and unpredictable motion applied to way too crowded and chaotic spaces.

Could be worth a viewing, would like to see it sometime in the future.

A cheap action movie with Jean-Claude Van Damme and Rob Schneider. Sounds crap, eh? Well, if you go in with that attitude then you may get a pleasant surprise.

Knock Off has semi-decent action and good stupid laughs along the way. It never takes itself seriously and neither do you, and the plot is simple and has moment of laughable stupidity but is easy to keep up with. This is a good film because it's a good mix of good and stupid, and it's good to watch with mates too. Not one of Jean-Claude Van Damme's greatest, but it massively outranks his worst by a milestone. Like Tango and Cash, it's so over the top and its characters are so laughably stupid that it's safe to say that Knock Off is a good movie, full stop.

Jean Claude, a Caesar haircuit dyed black, and rickshaw races... movie gold. I did like the fun camera angles and fancy editing a little. Fit the movie.

Very bad movie but the action was great. I gave this 4 stars solely on the action sequences because the story was just awful. LoL

Deranged action comedy from veteran Hong Kong director Hark Tsui which stars JCVD and Rob Schneider as a pair of shady Hong Kong fashion designers who find themselves teaming up with the CIA to take down an evil gang who want to hold the world to ransom with explosive trousers. Or something. Don't worry though, the film is so insanely hyperactive, over-stylised and over-directed, it mercifully distracts from how laughably moronic the plot is. Not that you'll actually be able to tell what the heck's even going on half the time, what with your every sense being assaulted violently from every direction with a constant barrage of madness. Still, while it is does have all the traits of a truly terrible movie, there's something strangely endearing about it and I'm not entirely sure what it is. It's just so eager and desperate to please, it's like the movie equivalent of a puppy, yapping and bouncing around your feet with limitless energy, refusing to give up until it wins you over. Of course one person's idea of "endearing" will be another person's idea of "f***ing awful" so approach Knock Off with caution. A LOT of caution.

Oh dear. Even by jcvd standards this was a poor one. Having the irritating beyond belief rob Schneider as his side kick did not help a jot.

The film has the same coke fueled manic energy that I'm sure was coursing through JCVD's veins at the time of filming. Actually this critically maligned film feels much more like a Hong Kong action film than a typical Hollywood action flick, which means a cagy pace, a crazy (some would say ridiculous) story and, of course, some crazy over-the-top action. Tsui Hark brings an incredible amount of energy and directs some wildly creative action sequences, with fight choreography by the great Sammo Hung. On the downside there is some pretty awful acting by JCVD and the always annoying Rob Schneider. Special effects are pretty bad and the story is pretty silly even by Hong Kong standards.
