The oddest team-up I ever seen!
20 January 2007 | by (WILMINGTON, NC) – See all my reviews

This movie to me is one of the oddest team-up of all times. Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dennis Rodman. I thought this movie would be a total bomb. Nope! It was very entertaining. Jean-Claude Van Damme plays a former CIA Agent who has to track down a killer who got his wife and unborn child. Dennis Rodman, who was suspended from the Chicago Bulls gets his acting chops together playing Yaz, a flamboyant arms dealer. He took the X-rays of Jack Quinn's(Van Damme) unborn son, Yaz knows anything like that won't be tolerated with. He helps Quinn all the way. In the fight scene, Yaz can hold his own in martial arts. Then he slams dunks a villain into a bus. Saying, "Does this make this a 5 pointer?" From all those years in basketball, you can make up your own score tactics. Starvos(Mickey Rourke), is ruthless and cold-blooded. Having his son killed, he wants to do the same to Quinn. Thanks to the work of Yaz, Starvos made his final step against Quinn. His revenge didn't go as planned, as to say. Very good movie, and it's a slam dunk of a movie! 3 out of 5 stars!
