Goofs

Jack asks "Who his Dead-Eye?", slides a case with a precision rifle to the woman, and asks if she can shoot a target at 200 yards with it. She starts assembling the rifle and says "with this I can shoot the dick off a hummingbird". Like most birds, hummingbirds don't have a penis, they have a cloaca. See more »

Good for what it is
22 February 2002 | by werd75See all my reviews

A lot of people seem to forget that Van Damme isn't trying to make a really great movie. He doesn't usually care about the plot or the acting. He wants to make an action movie. That is the only reason I ever watch his movies and he never fails to deliver, including in this movie. Sure you cringe at the corny acting and dialogue when it happens, but the action sequences totally make up for it. I also enjoy when a movie doesn't take place in the US or Canada. I'm just bored with that. In this movie they go to Antwerp and Rome. Very cool settings for the movie. Over all I was quite pleased. The director, Tsui Hark (I have NO idea how you pronounce that), is always quite reliable in making a good action movie. It was just a good action movie, people. Don't look at it for more than what it was.
