Audience Reviews for Legionnaire

  • Jan 07, 2020
    Imagine someone like Nicolas Cage, Bruce Willis or Kurt Russell in the lead, now would you have the same issue as Van Damme being in the lead? I feel this is what happened on release. Van Damme in the lead tended to avoid the audience this film was actually targeted to. Legionnaire is a good film, not a great film, just good. I'm actually quite shocked at the low scores here. The film is tame for a Van Damme film, and I was shocked when I viewed it on video all these years ago. The film has a decent and coherent plot, except the villains tracking him down. The film has a large scope and the film feels like a grand epic in design. It's a shame this was ignored or abandoned by the studio, or producers. This wasn't a Van Damme film and that's why everybody ignores, or dismisses it. 03/01/2020

    Always been a big fan of watching Van Damme kick butt with the signature spin kick and fighting in general. Unfortunately, there is very little of that in "Legionnaire" and I found it to be a snore fest....even though I don't snore.

    Did I remember this movie wrong or what?....It wasn't good....I thought the beginning was the best part...but that wasn't good at all....and it didn't get better after that. awful dialogue as well...This went from one of the best van damme movies to one of the worst.
