First of all, this is NOT a basic Van Damme flick. In fact, he's not in this movie a whole lot, and he's actually playing the villain this time around! Trying to be a combination of James Bond and Jackie Chan, the lead man Sho Kosugi is likable enough, but unlike Jackie when he does a stunt the camera is too far away from him and it's hard to know if he is was using a stunt double or not (if you stick around for the end credits, you'll see that he WAS doubled on at least two occasions). And unlike a Bond film the action of the movie is limited to one location, that being Malta, most of the time. Plus there isn't too much of it. Jean Claude does a surprisingly good job as a villain, but his two major showdowns with Kosugi are downright lame. In the role of a female CIA agent, Doran Clark handles her two opportunities for action capably - she should have gotten more. The funniest thing about this film is that Kosugi shows little chemistry with his on-screen kids, even though they are his kids in real life as well!
This film really isn't worth you time. I picked up a used copy on eBay here for 99 cents. I can't help but wonder why folks on amazon are trying to charge 60.00+ for a used copy. One of the sellers even has the nerve to say 'Great movie!' as the production information. Sad.
I owned this movie in VHS format but threw it away when I switched to DVD's.It was so difficult to find that I almost gave up. So I decided to give ebay a try and finally found it.This movie is definitely a classic and shows how passionate Van Damme was in his action films. He's not my role model but I respect his hard working dedication in keeping his body in top shape. Awesome film!
Excellent action and kept your interest in the movie. Van Damme is great and love his movies. I would recommend this movie to anyone that loves martial arts.
