In a violent and corrupt prison, decorated cop Louis Burke must infiltrate the jail to find answers to a number of inside murders. What he finds is a struggle of life and death tied in to his own past.
Private Luc Deveraux and his sadistic sergeant, Andrew Scott, got killed in Viet Nam. The army uses their bodies for a secret project - reanimating dead soldiers as deadly obedient cyborgs. However, their memories come back too.
Jean-Claude Van Damme,

"The Sandman" taunts Van Damme with the line, "Bring me a dream, Burke! Bring me a dream.". The song "Mr. Sandman" clearly states that it is the Sandman who brings the dreams and not Jean-Claude Van Damme...unless he just knocked you out with a kick to the face. See more »
Over the Radio:
Listen Burke, this is L.A. not Canada. We have procedures here.

The part where The Sandman jumps out of the fires and continues fighting Burke until he gets his head gored on a pipe, is cut in the Norwegian VHS-version. See more »
Dare I say that when this movie was made JCVD was at the peak of his physical shape ? He really looks awesome in this movie. He's a pretty good actor as well, which is evident when you compare Chuck Norris' movies from the same era.
Although the movie is more than 20 years old, it doesn't look dated. The movie is also not a mindless martial arts movie either. It has some good story behind it. Even compared to "Lionheart" made the same year, this movie is way ahead in terms of quality.
Amanda Gibbs is gorgeous in this movie. Too bad that we didn't get to see her during the '90s asides from this movie.
Seriously, this is one of the best JCVD movie made and is recommended for viewing even if you're NOT a JCVD fan.
