DVD Review – Enemies Closer (2013)

21 July 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Enemies Closer, 2013.

Directed by Peter Hyams.

Starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, Tom Everett Scott, Orlando Jones, Linzey Cocker, Christopher Robbie and Zahary Baharov.


Deep within a forest on the Us-Canadian border, two sworn enemies must work together to escape a ruthless drug cartel hell-bent on retrieving a drug shipment which went missing there.

Having been given the lead villain role in Expendables 2, and become an internet phenomenon thanks to that fantastic Volvo truck advert, Jean Claude Van Damme may have expected slightly more of a career resurgence in the last year or so. Much like the follow-On from his career best (and what could/should have been redefining) performance in Jcvd, when you expected perhaps one or two big name directors or producers to take a shot on Van Damme, it didn’t quite happen. In the end, on both occasions he merely reverted back to his place as one »

Enemies Closer Blu-Ray Review

11 March 2014 4:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Most sane people don’t seek out Jean-Claude Van Damme movies for their dramatic depth. That’s like judging an Adam Sandler comedy on how eloquent a critique it offers of the American political system. So, should you sit down to watch Enemies Closer, temper your expectations. If you go in expecting cringeworthy dialogue, ridiculous plot twists, campy acting and enjoyable action sequences, you certainly won’t be disappointed. But if you feel the urge to ask Enemies Closer for anything more, then you’re watching the wrong movie.

As the movie opens, a plane carrying large quantities of heroin crashes into a lake on the Us-Canadian border, drawing the attention of drug dealers lead by the maniacal Xander (Van Damme). Henry (Tom Everett Scott) is a forest ranger and former Navy Seal who lives out by the lake, tending to the park that surrounds it and attempting to forget his past transgressions while enlisted. »

‘Enemies Closer’ Review: Jean-Claude Van Damme Punches Like a Vegan

30 January 2014 10:00 AM, PST | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

A small plane crashes in a lake along the U.S.-Canadian border, and over the next few hours a group of drug-runners led by a militant vegan named Xander (Jean-Claude Van Damme) descend on a nearby island in order to retrieve the cargo. The only things standing in their way are a park ranger named Henry (Tom Everett Scott) and a mysterious visitor named Clay (Orlando Jones) who’s on a mission of revenge. Oh, and Xander’s lack of anything resembling a well thought out plan may also pose a bit of problem. Enemies Closer is a perfectly serviceable, low-budget action picture that is at its best whenever Van Damme is onscreen. He’s channeling Nicolas Cage circa Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call – New Orleans, and he chews his way through every scene with a gleefully manic energy. The bad news though is that scenes without him are slight at best and insufferable at »

Peter Hyams Takes Us Closer


Alex Simon

Peter Hyams has been making movies for over forty years. A native New Yorker, Hyams has the distinction of being one of the only directors who also serves as his own cinematographer on his films, a hyphenate that has caused him some controversy among cameramen (see below for more details). After making his mark with such classics as Capricorn One, Outland, The Star Chamber, 2010, and many others, Hyams hasn't slowed down, bringing us his twenty-first feature film. Enemies Closer is a white-knuckle thriller starring Jean-Claude Van Damme as the ruthless (and flamboyant) leader of a drug cartel on a search and destroy mission for his missing cache of product, which sits at the bottom of a lake on the U.S.-Canadian border. Tom Everett Scott plays the U.S. Park Ranger with a murky past who tries to stop him, along »

Film Review: ‘Enemies Closer’

22 January 2014 11:33 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jean-Claude Van Damme hams it up cheerfully in a rare villainous turn in “Enemies Closer,” an unremarkable but entirely serviceable action quickie that reunites the Muscles from Brussels with analog action specialist Peter Hyams, who directed Van Damme in two of his better big-studio starring vehicles: “Timecop” (1994) and “Sudden Death” (1995). Save for a considerably lower budget, “Enemies” might well have rolled off the same assembly line, making for a silly yet sturdily crafted time-filler, lacking the shrewd, self-aware qualities of Van Damme’s recent “Jcvd” and “Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning” (directed by Hyams’ son, John), but still well above most of the star’s latter-day direct-to-video efforts. Sure to generate less buzz than Van Damme’s recent Volvo commercial, the pic goes out via Lionsgate in limited theatrical and VOD release this Friday.
