Just like Universal Soldier II, this film gets bad reviews from you guys. Can't understand why. It was pretty good. Van Damme is not a hollywood actor, but he's still a cool actor. When I first saw this movie in a cinema I was pretty surpised. There was action from the beginning till the end. And when you go to a Van Damme movie you just want a 1.5 hour of fun, So don't expect more than that. I also liked it when I rented it for a second time. Now - this movie has some really cool camera angles and special editing, so it would look like a Hong-Kong movie. As for me, I saw couple of HK movies, and this one 's no different, in fact it was quite refreshing. Maybe Tsui Hark wanted this movie look like a Jackie Chan movie, but he did some real great work. The plot is quite hard to follow, but after seeing it twice you'll catch up.

One of Jean Claude Van Damme best movie. 9/10
