Oh
5 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

If they made a sequel to Double Team, would that be four teams or three? Is math supposed to be used that way? If they made a prequel would that be one team, or no team at all? Why does Double Team make me sad? Am I sad because of Jean Claude Van Damme? Am I sad because of Dennis Rodman or Mickey Rourke? Am I sad because of the other actors who must appear in this movie? I don't know. This is one of those kinds of movies that makes you think, makes you think why, like why make this piece of sh*t movie or it makes you think how, like how can such a piece of sh*t movie get made so easily while other movies that aren't related to human excrement have such a hard time being made. Yes, questions drive us forward towards truth.
