Editorial Reviews

Though he’s the nation’s top counter-terrorist, Jack Quinn (Jean-Claude Van Damme) wants to get out of the spy game. But on his final mission, he misses his target and wakes up in a place they call the Colony, a think tank for spies who are too dangerous to roam the world, but too valuable to be killed. With his target, the dangerous, enigmatic terrorist Stavros (Mickey Rourke) still on the loose and out to get his family, Quinn’s only hope is the flamboyant but deadly gun dealer Yaz (Dennis Rodman). International action superstar Van Damme and top US basketball star Dennis Rodman star as an unlikely team with enough voltage to rock the free world in DOUBLE TEAM!

3.0 out of 5 stars Personal Foul - Dennis Rodman March 4, 2009
Format:DVD
The Jean Claude Van Damme Review Matrix (JCVD-RM)

1. Who is he? Jack Quinn, anti-terrorism expert
2. Which family member/friend must be avenged? His kidnapped wife, his unborn son
3. Does he take his shirt off? His opening scene is straight out of the shower, and into the swimming pool
4. Does he have sex with a C-List actress? How do you think his wife got pregnant?
5. Is there a tournament? No, but Dennis Rodman thinks there is
6. Is training needed for this tournament? No, but Dennis Rodman should have taken some acting classes beforehand
7. Does he do the splits in training or in the tournament? Constantly. This might be the most splitastic of all his movies.
8. Does he punch someone in the balls? As if JCVD was attempting to sabotage this movie, he leaves out one of his classic moves.
9. Does he do a series of flying or 360 kicks? So much so that in a deleted scene he gets dizzy and pukes
10. Is his enemy unbeatable? For the role, Mickey Rourke looks buff, not tough
11. Does he overcome an injury or other hindrance? Just Rodman's acting
12. Does he win? As lamely as possible

Coaxed out of retirement to capture his arch-nemesis Stavros (Rourke), it's up to Quinn to ensure he is prepared with the latest weaponry. Quinn makes his way to the local source of all sexual and social deviation in Antwerp. Bikers, hippies, extreme tattoo artists and piercing specialists, trannies, hookers, body modification oddities, freaks and geeks. Naturally, he'd run into Yaz (Dennis Rodman) in a place like this. And, of course, Rodman is an exotic arms dealer, an extraterrestrial version of James Bond's trusty Q.

5.0 out of 5 stars This movie is off the hook! August 20, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Ok no, not really. This movie really sucks. It's terrible in pretty much everyway - but that's what makes it so good. It's so bad, and everything in it is so ridiculous, that it's a hoot. Over the years I gotten together with old friends and we watch it for some laughs. From Rodman's throwing guys up in the air like a basketball to Van Damme's classic 20 foot slide after he's tripped by Rourke, Double Team is a must see!

2.0 out of 5 stars Lukewarm Action Flick August 24, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Jean-Claude Van Damme isn't exactly known for his superb acting skills, and when NBA player Dennis Rodman enters the cast, one can safely assume that this movie will not be carrying home any accolades based on its actors' performance. Instead of talking about the plot first as reviews usually do, it's perhaps wiser to focus on the positive: the action. The fights in the movie--and there are a lot of them--are of Van Damme's past caliber. Rodman also pitches in now and then and throws a good punch or lashes out with a massive foot. The choreography is of course no match for the recent action hits like The Matrix and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, and is 'okay' at best. Rodman's character, a shady special arms dealer, does add some brightness with his 007-esque cadre of tech gadgets. Now, the plot. It's almost non-existent, and what little of it the movie has actually bogs it down. The idea of the island is not quite so platitudinous, but still looks lame. As the story goes on it quickly becomes trite and serves up one round of groans after another. Some of the parts are downright confusing, and those scenes should be replaced with more fights. One's time and energy exhausted in trying to digest the story would be much better spent in focusing on the punches and kicks. If you decide to watch this, it's probably not a bad idea to just tone down the volume. After all, there's really not much must-know information one can learn from the dialogues, as everyone already understands that whoever Van Damme and Rodman are kicking are the baddies. -Xiao Zhu

4.0 out of 5 stars Rodman Freakshow meets Van Damme Muscle Hour May 19, 1999
By A Customer
Format:DVD
An interesting teaming of Rodman & Van Damme. Rodman being the casually dangerous Arms Dealer with an unseemly fetish for body piercing, tatoo and other forms of pain. Oh, not too mention his Hypercolor hair & synthetic (literally) dress sense. Van Damme, playing the Super 007, who fails to take out the mastermind bad-guy, but then comes back from the dead to save his family (Awww, how sweet, and yet so unpredictable.) If you like seeing bullets, bikes, bad haircuts and bombs, then this movie is for you. If you are looking for a serious Van Damme flick then steer clear.

3.0 out of 5 stars THE ACTING IS HORRIBLE October 7, 2002
By zo
Format:DVD
This movie has been regarded by many as one of the worst ever made. While I wouldn't venture to say it's that bad, I have to agree that it's not academy award material. Van Damme and Rodman have one thing in common and that is a lack of acting skills. I can't stress enough that the acting in this film actually makes it comical and more fun to watch. However I gave the movie three stars because it delivered the action like it was supposed to. If you are a Van Damme fan and like action, check it out. If not, stay away.
