Goofs

In the scene where Wayne Barclay has just had the second attempt on his life at his girlfriend Lydia's apartment, just as he's leaving, he has his arm around Lydia in the medium shots and is only holding her hand in the long shots. The arm position becomes noticeable because it cuts back and forth between medium and long shots a couple of times. See more »

A very good movie! Van Damme is back!!!
15 August 2006 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

The Hard Corps is a very good movie, with a great cast and script. The story is very interesting and Van Damme proves another time, that he is a great actor and fighter. He is in a very good shape in this film and Sheldon Lettich did a great job. The fight scenes are really nice, Van Damme is fighting like a 10 years ago.

In my opinion, "In Hell", "Wake of Death", "Second in Command" and "The Hard Corps" were 4 great films.

Van Damme is getting back and nobody can stop him now! And now I'm waiting for Til Death and Bloodsport 2.

8/10.
