Jean-Claude Van Damme,

Next movie in which Jean-Claude Van Damme was going to star in after Double Team (1997) was an action horror Abominable, which was described as "Predator (1987) in a snow", in which his character would have to save group of people lost in snowy mountains from abominable snowman. Between 1995 and 2000, directors Peter Hyams and Renny Harlin were involved in the project, but due to poor box office results of Van Damme's films, Universal studio cancelled Abominable project. Despite many rumors, 2006 Bigfoot horror Abominable was not based on that cancelled Van Damme movie. See more »

A Dennis Rodman film with oblique basketball references!?
Watching this film was similar to having toothpicks shoved under my fingernails. While i am a fan of the BIG, DUMB action film this fell far short of providing the requisite entertainment value. When i saw this badboy staring back at me with the "let's get busy" eyes of Rodman and Van Damme I thought i had found a winner for a boring Saturday night. As it turns out i was more entertained by the low-budget Hasselhoff flick i rented as well.
This movie had all the elements i look for in a BIG, DUMB action film (i.e government agents who play by there own rules, sociopathic madmen, sports figures masquerading as actors) but i was completely let down. A boring plot combined with mush-mouthed dialogue is all i got for my rental fee. The best parts of the film are Rodman's pointless references to basketball even though it is never actually pointed out that he has anything to do with basketball. As far as we know he is simply a renegade gun runner with a soft spot for down on their luck agents.
Even though i am not giving a favorable review of this film i do recommend it to anyone who likes good fights. There are many and they appear to be well directed. Also especially good is Mickey Rourke as he hams it up as the killer out to get revenge on Van Damme character.
This is what we have come to expect from Van Damme so i shouldn't complain. I'm just glad he isn't trying comedy yet.
