    <b>I love Van Damme Movies, BUT I couldnt see anything I m used to with his Movies. This was not Typical Van Damme Movie. DARK HELL what a boring piece of shit. I mean there was even not a single Van Damme Sidekicks I love to watch in his Movies. I forgive you for this Movie Van Damme.

    Wait, what? Simon Yam? Headshots everywhere? Absurdly over-the-top use of quick jumps and flashbacks? Shit, Van Damme might be starring in really awful movies these days, but i wouldn't guess they were that insane. Either that or the director was doing 8 ball after 8 ball while shooting this.

    It's good! I liked it! Somewhat of a surprise. Yah, it's an action film and it does mostly follow the numbers. It uses that cool/artful direction and editing that is common in modern action, but it's effective. The director and/or the editor do go into some interesting flairs in some of the sequences which look, well... cool. It also develops (yah, actually develops, if only somewhat) some interesting characters that go a bit beyond your stock fare. Jean-Claude's character is even a little different that your average stock hero and, you know, he shows a bit of his acting chops through the character. Basically if you want an actioner that hit all the popcorn notes but still deviates enough to be interesting, see it.

    probably one of van damme's good movies but it's still not re-watchable. i'm guessing it's probably thanks mostly to philippe martinez that it's better than usual. not as much of a cheesefest as most of his others either! average stuff
