A policeman takes his twin brother's place and inherits his problems and a beautiful girlfriend. He is forced to kickbox his way from France to the U.S. and back while playing footsie with the FBI and Russian mafia.

This is Jean Claude Van Dammes coming of age film, where he proves he is actually an actor as well as a martial artist.
His character and portrayal of the character were very convincing, none of the stupid smiling and gurning of previous roles he's played.
Ignore the twins storyline aspect of the film, this is not a retread of Double Impact, and the films could not be more different.
Problem for JCVD is that his many martial arts fans might find this film a bit too intelligent, and the usual cinema goer simply won't see it because its got JCVD in it, which is a shame really, as its not a bad film at all.
There are no real downers, the villains are suitably villainous, the direction is good, JCVD is good, the story is OK, and just as importantly, JCVD's acting is good.
I caught this film again for the first time in an age, and I have to say, I liked it.
