Quotes

Mr. Dunston: [Mr. Dunston walks up on the porch towards Sam] Well, I'm surprised to see that you're still here.
Sam Gillen: No, you're not.
Mr. Dunston: Yes, I am.
Sam Gillen: [Sam walks closer to Mr. Dunston] If I see you near her or the children I'll kill you.
Mr. Dunston: [Mr. Dunston walks up closer] Look. You seem like a smart fellow. The woman isn't worth it. And I'll tell you, when push comes to shove you're not going to be dealing with some little tin-badge local sheriff guy. You're going to be dealing with me. Okay?
Sam Gillen: I'll look forward to it.
Mr. Dunston: Me, too.

Nice guy saves the day in one of his better films
17 February 2000 | by (Venus) – See all my reviews

Escaped from prison, Van Damme camps out near a widow's home in the woods.

Sure there's some action in the movie with quite a number of punch 'em outs but the movie really should have been in the drama section, not the action section of rental stores. This is quite a change for Van Damme as he becomes a father to the fatherless, nice guy, gentleman, and town savior.

So the story was really good and damn Van Damme did a good job at his nice guy part. The funniest part is when he and the boy go into town for motorcyle parts and the sherrif dude asks him questions. Listen to how Van Damme pronounces 'motercycle' and 'Quepec'.
