Sparked by the erotic chemistry between Van Damme and Henstridge, spectacular stunts, and globe-hopping adventure, MAXIMUM RISK is "vintage Van Damme" -Bob Ross, TAMPA TRIBUNE.

Great action film.

Now, I like seeing Henstrige naked as much as the next guy, but the love scene between her and Van Damme needed to be inserted with a crow bar.
Eric Sanberg
One of Jean-Claude Van Damme's best movies.

I am a fan of action movies, but I've found some of Van Damme's previous flicks (most notably, Knock Off), to be below average. After seeing this movie on TV, however, I was quite impressed and ended up buying it.
As with most action movies, this one features a hero (Van Damme) who has to kick some butt, aided by a beautiful girl (Natasha Henstridge). The movie starts off with a pretty good car chase, followed by lots of scenes with guns firing and martial arts sequences. The plot isn't extensive -- Van Damme's character's twin brother is killed and he now assumes his twin's identity, only to be hounded by the Russian mafia and corrupt FBI agents.
I've only seen the VHS version, so unfortunately I can't comment on the DVD sound and video quality. Nevertheless, this is a good standard action flick -- in my opinion, Van Damme's best movie (or at least it rivals Bloodsport), and I recommend it for any action movie fan.

Van Damme has Derailed and went In Hell for some of his career, but this one I would say is his best, well next to Universal Soldier and Bloodsport I'd say its right up there with them. basically about Van Damme getting killed and then Van Damme coming into his brothers life. fast action and a good finale make this worth while

During his glory days, Jean-Claude Van Damme was somewhat of a vehicle for Hong Kong directors wanting to break into the American film market: previously, he had saddled the freshman outings of Corey Yuen, John Woo, and later Tsui Hark. While those directors were mostly interested in what they could get out of the Muscles from Brussels in terms of guns, car chases, and karate, Ringo Lam of City on Fire and "Maximum Risk" here seemed more intent on developing Van Damme beyond his action hero image via a step into the thriller genre. Whether he was successful is a matter of opinion, but it's unquestionable that this film is one of the most mature outings from this stage in our hero's career and definitely one of his most entertaining and interesting.

The story: when French policeman Alain Moreau (Van Damme) uncovers the death of a twin brother he never knew existed, he assumes his identity to uncover the reason behind his death and his underworld connections in America.

The script by Larry Ferguson (writer of The Hunt for Red October and definitely one of the more respected people to pen a Van Damme movie) places storytelling over action setups and, in general, feels a bit smarter than the average Van Damme vehicle.

THIS HAS TO BE ONE OF VAN DAMME'S TOP 3 MOVIES. There is plenty of action and excitement that will make you want to watch it over and over again. Natasha Henstridge is down right sexy and georgeous. She played a perfect role in this movie. The movie was well-acted and thought it deserved a 5 star. This movie is a must-own on DVD. The sound quality is great as well as the picture. *Van Damme kicks plenty of...

This is a very good van damme action film. Too bad its only out in a full frame version now. Maybe the widescreen version will appear again in the future.

Another twin movie, but without a twin. Yes! Van Damme gets killed at the beginning of the movie and his twin brother fills his shoes to find out why he died. Natasha Henstridge pays tribute to the immortal that is Van Damme and helps him deliver major risky business! Van Damme acts again for, the third time? It's a real exotic picture and it feels like a jacuzzi. Steamage! Van Damme fights guys all over the world in this one. You could say 'same old, same old,' but NO! This movie has a fight in a fire and in an elevator where the bad guy gets stained toes. Ouch! Cut back to the chase now, Van Damme and Henstridge make this movie work and it deserves to be purchased immediately.

This was a great flick that had action from start to finsh! If you like a lot of shootouts, car crashes, and SUPER HOT women like Natasha Henstridge then you will love this movie. The director Ringo Lam (from Replicant) does a great job with all the camera angles. The best angles were when JCVD does his shooting and the stunts were amazing. This is plain and simply a great movie.

It was an enjoyable film. A couple of good fight sequences. Dealing with Russian mafia was something I hadn't seen done before. Van Damme as a French policeman, is on a quest to know his twin brother, whom he just discovered that he had after he was killed running from some sinister types bent on capturing him. He finds himself in New York City in "Little Moscow" with his deceased brother's girlfriend. The mob who was trying to kill his brother is now trying to kill him. To make matters worse, there are a few crooked FBI agents 'on the take' who also want him dead (but not until they acquire a list that only he can get to). There were some intense moments. Worth seeing.
