Because of other commitments at the revised recording time, Ingman had to be replaced by another conductor, Nic Raine. See more »

A different direction for Van Damme and it mostly pays off.
25 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

Always a fan of Van Damme, I have seen every title of his since No Retreat, No Surrender and I can tell you right now, his acting in the 80's and most of the 90's was laughable. You don't watch a Van Damme movie for it's acting, you watch it for the fight scenes right? Not this time around. Until Death strongly focuses on its main characters flawed life. How a man who seemed to have it together at one point has completely lost it and is in a downward spiral full of drugs, hookers and a crooked run as a cop. Wondering if Van Damme can pull it off? He does and continues in my opinion to prove that he is better then the low-quality DTV movies that he has been unfortunately starring in for the past 7 years. Due to that fact, if this movie were made as a theatrical release with better funding and better actors surrounding our star, it would be amazing. Thanks to Van Damme and the director for at least trying to make this movie look the best it could, this movie is very good. Some fans may be disappointed with the lack of martial arts but this movie doesn't call for it. It would actually be out of place and pretty stupid for this guy to be as lethal a martial artist as we know Van Damme to be. Out of all of Van Damme's DTV releases, this one along with Wake of Death are his strongest and I strongly recommend that you check it out.
