Editorial Reviews

After a major shipment of drugs goes missing on the US-Canadian border, forest ranger and former Navy SEAL Henry is plunged into survival mode when the drug cartel forces him to help retrieve the downed package. Trapped in the wilderness with no communication to the outside world, Henry finds himself face to face with Clay, a man with a personal vendetta against Henry who has returned for retribution. Now, the two mortal enemies must make a choice: put aside their past and work together, or die alone at the hands of the drug runners, a ruthless gang who will stop at nothing to retrieve their lost cargo.

Finally watched this. I enjoyed it. The highlight is easily JC's performance, which is one of his best in my opinion. His villain is so wacky and over the top...almost like he was channeling Klaus Kinski or something. Another plus the movie had going for it was the pacing. Once it gets going, it doesn't slow down at all. It almost goes by too fast since it's only 85 minutes. Something I was kind of surprised with was how much JC was actually in it. I mean, this felt like a Van Damme movie! Not just a minute of screen time here and there. He 100% felt like the lead to me. I didn't mind Tom Everett Scott at all. Yeah, his character was a bit of a pussy and he isn't the first actor you would think of for an action role but it was just nice seeing a familiar Hollywood face...and acting wise, I thought he was fine. I would take him as a co star any day of the week over a Randy Couture type. Same goes for Orlando Jones. Everyone else, with the exception of the old guy that lived in the cabin, is a typical generic JCVD direct-to-video co star.

Production wise, I really liked the night time shooting. It hid the tiny budget pretty damn well and it just looked cool in general, I thought. The movie did have a few flaws that were annoying. For starters, Kris Van Varenberg was completely miscast and unconvincing as usual and every time that Linzey Cocker opened her mouth I wanted to hang myself! Also, some of the doubling was overly visible in some shots which is always irritating.

Overall, it may have been a bit of a let down considering that Peter Hyams gave us two of JC's best, but Enemies Closer is still WORLDS better than most other recent JCVD movies. It's a fun little action flick and I could easily re-watch it. 3.25/5

Director Peter Hyams is responsible for some of my most guilty pleasures when it comes to movies. I’ve enjoyed many of his films over the years, including OUTLAND with Sean Connery, 2010, TIMECOP, THE RELIC, and A SOUND OF THUNDER. So when I heard he was teaming up with Jean-Claude Van Damme again for this film, I couldn’t wait to see it. And sure enough, Hyams once again does not disappoint. ENEMIES CLOSER is a fast-paced thriller that is full of dark humor and intense action.

As an 80’s teen, I am so glad to see Van Damme back onscreen. Granted, he’s older, but it’s still fun seeing him in action, much like seeing Stallone and Schwarzenegger. These action icons may age, but they can still kick ass!

ENEMIES CLOSER is shot well and looks great onscreen. There are not many special effects, but we do get some nice gore when homemade traps kill a couple of unsuspecting bandits. The sets look superb, and I am particularly impressed with how the production team made their Louisiana filming location look like the U.S./Canadian border.

The acting is pretty good, about what you would expect from an action flick. Tom Everett Scott actually does a good job with this serious role (I expect tongue-in-cheek performances from him for the most part, but he does not go that route here), as does Orlando Jones. Jones surprised me, for I’ve only seen him do comedy…seeing him in such a dark persona is a nice change of pace. But Van Damme steals the show as the poofy-haired, psychotic leader of the drug bandits. I’ve never seen him in a role like this, but he pulls it off with ease. With a bit of pitch humor and a nice dose of crazy, Van Damme gives us a perfect villain.

Now…for as much as I liked this film, ENEMIES CLOSER does have a couple of issues.

Man I hate that Van Damme has to get old; I remember seeing him for the first time in "Bloodsport" and how ridiculously good-looking the guy was combined with his unique, almost gravity-defying style of martial arts that made him such a phenomenal action star.

It's fairly obvious that "Enemies Closer" has relatively higher production values than some of Jean-Claude's other films and I especially enjoyed the addition of Orlando Jones as the vengeful brother however I definitely wasn't buying the forest ranger/slacker/central hero and for me it's a little annoying that B-movies tend to substitute expletive's for about 20% of all dialogue (keeps down the script overhead no doubt). Although Jean-Claude does use that signature, cocky swagger and sleepy eyes to excellent effect as a villain, the whole vegetarian militant environmentalist drug-lord persona is a little James Bond villain and more annoying than endearing and may I say that whoever decided on giving him the Ronald McDonald hair-style shoulda been fired from the outset.

Van Damme may never be nominated for an Oscar but he is and always has been a performer of the first order and so I wouldn't hesitate to recommend giving this one a rent, for fans anyway. :o)

Enemies Closer opens with a drug plane crashing in a lake on an island on the US/Canadian border. The cartel that the drugs belong to sends Xander (Jean Claude Van Damme) and his henchmen to island that the lake is apart of to retrieve them. They run into two people on the island who at first they must eliminate as witnesses and later must capture as they become pivotal to completing the mission.

Tom Everett Scott and Orlando Jones play the two people still on the island and as an added twist, they play two people who are trying to kill each other on the island when the cartel tries to kill them both, forcing them to work together. Scott plays Henry; an ex-Navy SEAL who became a Forrest Ranger on the island, which is also a nature preserve, after a mission in Afghanistan went bad and he lost a friend. Jones plays Clay; the ex-con brother of the man Henry lost who sneaked onto the island to kill Henry in revenge. They are in the middle of their own battle when Xander and his guys stumble across them.

Jones is fine as the disgruntled brother but Scott is badly miscast as Henry. Henry is supposed to be this bad ass Navy SEAL, but their is just something completely wimpish about the way Scott plays the role. It doesn't help that Henry gets beaten up several times during the movie, despite being an ex-Navy SEAL commander. Van Damme just kills as the bad guy in the movie. He's a drug runner with crazy hair and a vegan environmentalist outlook.

The story is good enough though the action is weak, unless its JCVD fighting. Van Damme just dives right into the ridiculousness of the character, even killing someone in the movie for doing something that harms the environment. Its an all time classic performance especially if your a fan of his.
