The "Royal Canadian Mounted Police" do not wear the classic red serge jackets, that's only for special events and even there there's only a handful of them. The "mounties" on duty in the movie should be wearing normal police style uniforms in dark colors. The production had the uniforms completely wrong and almost comedic. See more »
Maybe the 8 stars is more because of how surprisingly entertaining this Van Damme movie is compared to some of his recent stuff. I actually only even took a chance on it because Orlando Jones was in it as well.
Van Damme seems to be channeling the creepy acting methods of Willem Defoe, Christopher Walken and Jack Nicholson in this one, and he pulls it off really well.
If you are looking for mindless action with a basic plot line, this one provides just that with a few little twists to boot. No Academy Awards here, but for pure action movie submersion without a whole lot of need to think too deeply, this movie was a pleasant surprise.
