The Best Van Damme Movie ever!
12 June 2006 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Double Impact is simply the Best Van Damme movie of his career. Van Damme hasn't been making much great movies recently. I remember in my school days, Van Damme was one of the favourites among the lads. Van Damme has given us Great movies in the past. Kickboxer, Bloodsport and Hard Target are some of His Finest Movies. I'm my opinion, Double Impact is better then the mentioned movies in terms of Storyline. Double Impact has great fight scenes including Van Damme against Bolo Yeung, also in Bloodsport. It has Plenty of violence, packed with good laughs. This was Van Dammes opportunity to act apart from fighting all the time. Van Damme does a decent job playing two separate characters Alex and Chad. It has a impressive storyline about 2 twin brothers separated at birth, who link up when their older, to take revenge on the Gang that killed their parents. This is a great entertaining movie.
