A different style Van Damme movie, using no kicks or any fancy martial arts moves. JCVD plays a Legionnaire in this, as in 'Lionheart'. He has a boxing match in this movie, in the beginning. Well directed, and good story-line. It's another good Van Damme movie that's very enjoyable. Recommended for everyone.
