One of Van Damme's better films.
14 January 1999 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Nowhere To Run is one of Van Damme's better films. It has a nice storyline and some good acting. The direction is tight and I lked the score also. Not bad, but will probably be overlooked because it's a Van Damme picture.
