Using tactics like these, Woody Allen could become an action hero, too.

Top Critic

As Lionheart heads for his final confrontation, the film's soundtrack blasts out a "Rocky"-like song called 'No Mercy.' Unless you're a Van Damme or martial arts fanatic, you're more likely to be thinking: No, merci.

Top Critic

Accompanied by an occasionally jazzy score, the film has a solid dramatic base on which to build the Jean-Claude Van Damme action.

Audience Reviews for Lionheart

½

Great Van Damme flick and one of his best, watching him battle through various fighters of different skills untill he meets the big boss. Its very very basic, just like all Van Damme films and much like a computer game it has no proper plot, bad acting and the same predictable outcomes but somehow its good. All the fights are very well filmed and choreographed, the fighters do look like real people and it looks slick n fast with the final fight being a real adrenaline rush, awesome. Question is whats it called? Lionheart? A.W.O.L? or Wrong Bet?

One of my favorites of Van Damme, nothing special besides the fighting, which is why people watch it.

Harrison Page is probably a pretty good actor.
