Jean Claude Van Damme meets The Prisoner *** 1/2 out *****
21 January 2009 | by (Cardiff,Wales) – See all my reviews

I actually really enjoyed this JCVD effort, it a had a fair but of money thrown at it in this case $30m plus, it's stylishly filmed, JCVD is as wooden as ever, but there's plenty of action which is what you want in a JCVD flick, and I even don't mind Rodman's performance, he's far from being the worst actor I've ever seen, but the worst part of this movie is that it becomes needlessly complicated especially on the 'Island' which is a reference surely to the 1960's cult TV show with the now late Patrick Mcgoohan.

This film ended up looking like a very good Straight to Video job which is why it surely tanked at the Box Office & after a few more theatrical disasters such as Knock Off & Universal Soldier: The Return (neither of which were that bad) JCVD has been reduced along with Steven Seagal,Dolph Lundgren & Wesley Snipes into straight-to-DVD releases of varying quality but he still has a loyal band of fans who rent/buy these releases, me included.

***1/2 out of *****
