Quotes

Stavros: You know, Jack... I can call you Jack, can't I? I bet there's not a single night where you can close your eyes tight enough without seeing my little boy's face. I'm gonna give you a chance to know your son. If you live today, you'll get to know your son. And if you don't, I'll raise him as my own. You know, men are strong, Jack, but the tiger is stronger. Oh, one more thing, Jack. There's nothing wrong with stepping on a mine. It's stepping off that counts.

rock on!
1 January 2004 | by camilleusjonesSee all my reviews

this flick flat out rocks and rocks hard! at last van-damme finds a director who knows what to do with a fight scene! the best fights are of course with the guy with the knife in his shoe, the opening hospital scene which may remind you movie buffs of john woo's hard boiled, and last but not least the showdown with stavros....
