Critics be damned I liked this movie. Saw it again while I was playing with a DVD recorder, checking my work and wound up watching the whole flick again. Its the best movie I've seen Van Damme in (not seen that many) and The Woo puts his mark on the film with well done action and pyrotechnics. The supporting cast is also good especially the two main bad guys. Most of the action isn't so far over the top like movies today have way too much of, i.e., it's at least mostly plausible. Its a solid 8 in a narrowed-down rating system.
4.75/10

A Van Damme movie that I can actually watch and enjoy. Cliched and copies countless movies but Woo gives it enough pizazz.
"The result is without question is one of the best film Van Damme has ever made along with universal soldier
i mean he is an underated actor but he is an amazing martial artist
*** (out of four)

This is just about the only Jean-Claude Van Damme film that I think is worth seeing. For some reason things work here. The New Orleans setting adds to the routine story. Lance Henriksen makes a great villain here.

Ummmm.... What to say about this movie....

It's so bad.... It's so fakey.... It's got a LOT of action.... It's got a lot of bad acting.... Bad writing....

Come on, really, a snake attacking like a sloth? Slow motion attack, here I come.... And I could buy a more realistic looking snake at the Dollar Store!
I've not seen all Jean Claude Van Damme's movies, but here are a few of them.
(*** 1/2):

A pure guilty pleasure. This film has it all: Van Damme with long hair, Lance Henriksen, Wilford Brimley with a bow and arrow, and a snake being knocked out with a single punch. Oh, and a bunch of violent deaths and explosions. An underrated action flick in my opinion.
