Audience Reviews for Maximum Risk

  • Dec 03, 2012
    Maximum Risk is one of my favourite Van Damme films. I'm not sure why it still shines after all these years. The filmmaker is unique and not common for most of his films. The action is stylish and that is due to Ringo Lam's influence. The film is not going to win any awards, but this is a very different Van Damme film and it's a shame it was the beginning of the end for his cinema films. It's funny that he tends to have films with two versions of himself, and if I had to give praise, I would say it's the best of the twin films. This had the opportunity to be much better, but they allow the actors to ham it up too much. 23/03/2020

    Just a weeee bit on the stupid side. I prefer if when Van Damme pokes fun at himself.

    Lam and Van Damme together again in this passable time waster.  I actually quite liked their other films, especially In Hell, which I think is a STV masterpiece, and MR measures somewhere around Wake of Death.

    This is one of Van Damme's best movies, I loved the plot and the acting (especially the fight scenes) were great. A police inspector takes his murdered twin brother's place and inherits his problems and his beautiful girlfriend. He is forced to interact with the FBI and the Russian mafia while he attends a kickboxing tournament, he does this in order to solve the crime that happened to his brother. Van Damme was awesome in this movie and I remember renting this movie many times. You won't regret watching this movie, for sure.
