Quotes

Stavros: You know Jack, I can call you Jack can't I? I bet there's not a single night, where you can close your eyes tight enough, without seeing my little boy's face. I'm gonna give you a chance to know your son. If you live today, you'll get to know your son. And if you don't, I'll raise him as my own. You know, men are strong Jack, but the tiger is stronger. Oh, one more thing Jack, there's nothing wrong with stepping on a mine, it's stepping off that counts.

Okay action, but huge logical gaps.
28 April 2000 | by (Froland, Norway) – See all my reviews

Double Team is the third movie that Van Damme has done for a former HONG-KONG action-movie director. He has done "Hard Target" for John Woo and "Maximum Risk" for Ringo Lam. Double Team is directed by Tsui Hark. Hark is excellent at directing action-scenes and Double Team is a good way for him to start in Hollywood. Van Damme plays agent Jack Quinn, and is sent out to kill super-terrorist Stavros, who is played by Mickey Rourke. Quinn fails and is therefore sent sent to a place called "The Colony". "The Colony" is a place where the world's most dangerous terrorists/agents are sent. These agents/terrorists are too dangerous to go free on the street and too valuable to kill. Quinn escapes from the colony and goes after Stavroes for revenge. Quinn is helped by Yaz, who is played by the basket-star Dennis Rodmann. Double Team is full of well made action and martial-art scenes. However, it`s far from perfect. The whole plot is very silly, there are huge logical gaps and holes in the story and Mickey Rourke is far from convincing as a villain. Double Team isn`t a film for everybody. Van Damme seems like he is out of shape. But it`s definetly worth to rent it for an action-fan. But I must say that "Knock Off" is better. I give this movie 7 out of 10.
