You'll probably enjoy this most if you're a seasoned fan of Van Damme. For everyone else, there's not that much to see here. Pretty standard flick in most regards.

Really good movie with a nice rollercoaster of a story. A lot of surprises and great action.

A noble attempt at making a good film, but ultimately there are just too many cliches and silly bits. Ringo Lam was a massive talent. For some reason that talent was largely squandered on bad movies.

This one was a bit of a sleeper that came and went near the end of Jean-Claude Van Damme's commercial height. It actually makes for a fine, slow burn, Russian mafia crime thriller. Van Damme still does some kicking and there's some cool set pieces via director Ringo Lam, but this one is really more of a chase-mystery.
Super Reviewer

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

Not your typical Van Damme flick. This is a well-made action/thriller by Ringo Lam. Everything from the story, to dialogue, to set designs, to action and even acting (Zach Grenier's performance as Russian boss is particularly memorable) - It's all done just right. Simply a great package.

A pretty good film actually. It didn't feel dated despite the fact it was released in 96'. Great action.

Rather improbable action/post-coldwar-russian-thugs vehicle. The 'twin brother' story has so much potential (even to those who know that twins are readily distinguishable by anyone truly familiar or intimate) and this is all wasted in favour of stereotypical russians-in-NewYork intereacting with stereotyped NewYork cops while a not-so-dumb blonde satisfies her lust for the man she believes dead, improbably restored.

So some audience male-fantasy is satisfied, and not much else.

Van Damme playing twins again, which seems to be a recurring theme for him for whatever reason. With a brother he never knew that he had killed, a French cop is forced to dig deeper into his life, in a trail that leads him to the super hot Natasha Henstridge, his dead brother's girlfriend. This is a very pleasant turn of events, I can assure you.

It's a watchable action flick, Henstridge is gorgeous, Van Damme is in top form here, give it a rental.

Maximum Risk is an okay film. It is about a policeman who takes his twin brother's identity and inherits his problems and lifestyle. Jean-Claude Van Damme gives a good performance. The script is well written (for an action movie) and is face paced. Ringo Lam does a decent job directing this movie. I like this motion picture for the action and adventure. Maximum Risk is fitting for a Friday night movie.

It was sort of a solid action flick but the story wasn't all that great.

One of the best action films I've seen in a while actually. Much better than most action movies today that always have the same plot... then you feel cheated as though you are watching the same movie over and over with different actors... LOL!
The action in this movie keeps you on your toes and a lot of it is hilarious. I aeriously am considering buying this movie now. Not every day that I rate something with 5 stars. The main actor(Jean-Claude Van Damme) did an amazing job and had similar qualities with Arnold the Terminator. The female actress was also very gorgeous and went well with Jean. :)
