Movie Info

Léon Gaultier (Jean-Claude Van Damme) is a soldier in the French Foreign Legion, serving abroad in East Africa. But after his brother is cruelly murdered, Gaultier deserts his assignment and travels to the United States to help his widowed sister-in-law (Lisa Pelikan), who is now struggling to care for her children. But the job market is tough, so Gaultier takes his hand-to-hand combat skills into the brutal world of bare-knuckle fighting, where the paydays are nearly as big as the risks.

Audience Reviews for Lionheart

  • Jan 15, 2012
    There's no real point of disguising the fact the plot is very one dimensional. Don't expect a lot of back story or character development and you'll discover an intriguing fight movie. The fight scenes are well handled and its the real reason van damme has an audience. The film has a fun soundtrack and the films characters are quite fun. The director commonly plays the emotional parts a little to over the top as van damme doesn't have the experience to pull them off. It's good to see a film that doesn't take itself too seriously. The film will suit fans and action junkies

    One of Jean-Claude's better films from his early career, Lionheart (or AWOL as it was known on this side of the Atlantic) sees him escaping from a French Foreign Legion outpost in Northern Africa to travel to Los Angeles when he finds out his brother has been left for dead after a botched deal with drug dealers. Arriving in New York after 3 or 4 weeks at sea, he attracts the attention of a former fighter turned hustler who promotes him as an underground boxer in order for Lyon (Van Damme) to help pay for his trip to LA, and to help his widowed sister in-law to help pay the rent to keep her and her daughter from living rough. Entertaining movie with some good stunts and fights.

    One of the last films i saw, before i gave up on the muscles from brussels. Ok effort with loads of cool fighting sequences. Best watched on a rainy day and on a channel lets say like action or something you didnt have to pay for.
