A surprisingly Competent and compelling War movie, Van Damme puts in an excellent performance.
Best van damme movie ever
Three and a half stars.
Its a non Van Damme martial arts
action scenes. The script, story and acting are dodgy but the battle scenes are film competently and are pretty impressive, an early attempt for Van Damme to try the acting but early stages shows no promise. JCVD still is best one in the acting stakes.
utterly awful. basically a 'cover version' of the much better 'march or die' - but with a boxing match at the start. they don't even sing 'le boudin' properly, and the main twist in the film whereby the hero's whereabouts are discovered proves that the makers knew nothing about the legion's anonymity policy. cheap, nasty, beau geste meets march or die - dumbed down. an insult to the legion, and to your intelligence
Theres not a lot of love out there for this movie yet strangely I quite enjoyed legionnaire, don't get me wrong van Damme films are usually designed to be cheesy with an admirable amount of martial arts chucked in for good measure, so are they supposed to be visual masterpieces?
not a blockbuster yet one of Claude's better flicks
Legionnaire tries too hard to be a cliche war drama, but even fails at that. But it has a good musical score and half-decent performance from Jean-Claude Van Damme in the lead role.
It's good to see Jean-Claude Van Damme branching out to wider roles, and this one is half decent.
But the plot is too formulaic, as are the themes, and there's just no creativity at all in Legionnaire. The plot dynamics are tedious and unoriginal, and too many of them are derivative of every Jean-Claude Van Damme film ever made.
But the action at the end is fairly good and the final scene when Jean-Claude Van Damme reflects on his friendship and his loss achieves what much more of what the film set out to achieve then the rest of it did, so it isn't entirely bad.
So as far as Legionnaire goes, it suffers the same issues you'd expect from a Jean-Claude Van Damme movie, but he gave a better than usual performance and its good to see him branch out into a war drama, and there was some good action at the end.
A good dipiction of a legionnaire.
Very different movie. I liked it but it's not action packed like you're typical van damme movie. It does have it's dry moments, no pun intended since it takes place in the desert, but all in all it's a pretty good movie.
A Jean-Claude Van Damme film without a roundhouse is like a Jessica Alba film without a bikini...it's a wasted resource.
