Goofs

In the beginning of the movie when George Spota is talking to the senate committee he states that an arms deal was being paid for by gold bullion from the civil war. He states that this coin was carbon dated back to that time. This cannot be so for two reasons. One if it was brought forward in time it would not have had a chance to age. But even more so is that you cannot carbon date metals. Carbon dating can only be used for organic matter, material that was once living. See more »

Van Damme takes a break from his usual tournament-style fare to bring us a movie based around a story rather than a series of jump kicks. I won't repeat the synopsis you can read on IMDb. What I will say is that this is honestly the single best movie of Van Damme's career. It made a solid attempt at a story, it had decent special effects and sound effects, the acting was as good as van damme gets, and the action was good. Perhaps if he had made a few more of this caliber he might have become a more stable box office draw rather than the queen of straight to video punch-and-kick drivel.
