Originally filmed as "The Exchange" but during post-production, Sony felt that people wouldn't get the subtle title. Sony wanted something that sounded more like an action film. A new title "Bloodstone" was selected. Sony even used this title to promote the film in several industry publications, but they ultimately felt that the new title lacked the urgency and excitement of a Jean-Claude Van Damme film. Ultimately "Maximum Risk" was selected. See more »
The scene where Agent Pellman grabs the chainsaw, the power-cord attached to it is clearly visible, still we (The audience) are led to believe that it's a gasoline powered chainsaw when it's obviously an electrical one. See more »

If you see only one Van Damme film...see Maximum Risk. It is a decent thriller, not just a martial arts flick. Unfortunately, after seeing how good Van Damme can be (yes, he can act - something we've yet to see from Stephen Seagal who he's usually compared to) it makes you sad to see how many bad films he's really made.
