THIS FIGHT IS ONE ON ONE
THIS FIGHT IS ONE ON ONE
After an F-11 gets shot down over the Mediterranean Sea, The U.S. government cannot afford to lose the top-secret laser tracking device that was on board. But unfortunately, the KGB team lead by the infamous Andrei (Jean-Claude Van Damme, The Expendables 2, Universal Soldier) are beating the CIA in the race to find it. The CIA has no choice but to call in their best man, master martial-artist Ken Tani (Sho Kosugi, Ninja Assassin, Revenge of the Ninja), code name… BLACK EAGLE. In response, the KGB resorts to an all-out war, with powerful Andrei matching Ken blow for blow. From legendary action director Eric Karson (The Octagon), Black Eagle also stars Doran Clark (The Warriors), Bruce French (Jurassic Park III) and William Bassett (House of 1000 Corpses).

What can go wrong with Sho Kosugi in the starring role with Jean Claude Van Damme supporting? Well, I certainly found out after watching this disc. However, though the film itself was disappointing to me, the disc is really top notch. I can't imagine any other label giving this much love to Black Eagle. In addition to providing two cuts of the film including a significantly longer non-theatrical version, we also get a 35 minute featurette including many of the key players in the making of the film (writer, director, primary stars). This featurette really lent insight into the film's creation and in particular some missteps. There is also an additional 40 (!) minutes of interviews if that wasn't enough plus 11 minutes of deleted scenes. While I've read a review that states the film was processed too strongly to create a waxen look, I wasn't looking that closely and just sat back to enjoy the film.
In any case, I can't say that this is a movie that I will revisit often, but the disc and packaging itself really struck me. It's clear that real effort was put into this set for a film that one wouldn't expect to see treated so kindly, and I applaud that.
The action starts slowly and builds to a satisfying climax. This movie is not particularly loaded with action and martial arts, but there's more than enough for most viewers. Of course, we get to see Sho Kosugi fight JCVD a couple times. Although not on par with a Bond flick, there's a good variety of other stuntwork as well, including high dives, parachuting and even hang gliding. There's one decent car chase through the narrow streets of Malta.
Most martial arts fans would have liked to see more, especially from JCVD who doesn't really fight anyone else. As the leading hero, Kosugi takes out many bad guys with his vast array of skills. There's also more than enough mushy scenes with Kosugi and his (real) kids for the action junky; but this may make it a bit more enjoyable for their viewing companions.
This is a Van Damme screen test at best, he should have turned this one down.
I'm a die hared Van Damme fan, but this is a film that should not have his picture in
the thumbnail and one that he should have passed over.
DO NOT WATCH THIS and assume this is typical of Van Damme.

The sum up Black Eagle, it's a low budget spy action film that has clearly taken influence from Bond and even plays like one. But it is not copying 007, just taking some pointers. The film has heart and the director clearly was enjoying it all without taking the p***. This film is begging for a remake with JCVD.
He bought to us the way of the Ninja,a mysterious warrior of a Japanese lore!
This was one of many he was involved in and he impressed in it!
The 80's was a decade of great Music but also the Ninja Genre in Movies!
