With the help of a mysterious pill that enables the user to access 100 percent of his brain abilities, a struggling writer becomes a financial wizard, but it also puts him in a new world with lots of dangers.
Homeless and on the run from a military court martial, a damaged ex-special forces soldier navigating London's criminal underworld seizes an opportunity to assume another man's identity -- transforming into an avenging angel in the process.
I'd generally go into specific scenes, but this is generally not good.
Some of the cast is well-known so you'd expect better performances, but that's not the case. Most of them acted like they were tired and didn't want to act anymore.
Van Damme did his usual character, so he was as in any other of his movie. However, as opposed to those, he didn't have a big part in this one and it was mostly dialog and screaming (which is not what you look for in his movies).
Apart from that, the plot was reasonable for a comedy. Can't expect much from those and the fun comes mostly from details and dialog and how the character deal with the situations. But these characters had no depth and no good dialogs.
To sum it up, I think there was a good joke in there somewhere, but you'll have to pay attention. These actors can do better than this. Props, makeup and scenarios were perfect. All that was missing was decent writing.
