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.

Fast pace action! But the disk arrived scratched up because the hub that secures it was broken allowing the disk to be bounced around in the case. The sharp edges from the broken hub scratched the disk.

The film opens "South of France" which would be what? Spain? Andorra maybe? Nope. It was still France. We then see Jean-Claude Van Damme get killed and then we see him attending a funeral, but it wasn't even his funeral. As it turns out he is dead in an ambulance (a French one and not a Spanish one) looking at himself. Mom never told him about the twin she sold into white slavery. His twin would be raised in America being a wage slave in the capitalist system. But wait, he managed to escape all that by working for the Russian Mafia because the Albanians haven't made it big yet, and you can't get babes like Natasha Henstridge working at Wal-Mart, even if you make manager with benefits.

For some reason, Claude decides to investigate himself and travels to America only to discover the most annoying cab driver, who has English as his first language. At some point in time I would have backed out, but not Van Damme who still had 45 minutes to get into the can, and with a body count that was almost nil.

Mindless Van Damme fun.

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...

While not necessarily one of my favorites from his more "classic" collection (Bloodsport, Kickboxer, etc.), I give this one a lot of credit for creating an overall highly suspenseful experience, full of intense action/chase sequences, and with more of a story than many other action-oriented efforts in its class. It has a very polished feel, and the acting is actually better than a lot of those "classics."

I almost forgot about this one, but after revisiting it, I really liked it and would say it's one of JCVD's better films. Plus... Natasha Henstridge. Hot!

The quality of the instant video was good. Definitely worth the rent.
