Very Reasonable Adventure of Van Damme, In a Kind of Parody of Yojimbo
6 September 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In the middle of nowhere, a former killer is trying to find a reason to stay alive. When he is close to commit suicide, three bad guys hurt him and steal his Colt 45 and his motorcycle Indian 49. He is saved by his Indian friend Johnny and goes to a small town in the middle of the desert, where he protects the locals, fighting against two gangs of bad guys. I found this movie a very reasonable entertainment. There are some good jokes (the last one with UFOs is very creative and funny), good action and comical scenes, some beautiful women (the eyes of Gabrielle Fitzpatrick are amazingly beautiful) and reasonable performances. The movie makes a respectable joke with Yojimbo, inclusive in one of the last scenes, the bus driver invites the delicious Dottie Matthews (Jaime Pressly) to watch Yojimbo in a close town. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): 'Inferno'
