Van Damme + Letich = Fantastic Boom
5 November 2006 | by farooqnkSee all my reviews

This film is so far the best in all direct to DVD releases of Van Damme. Jean Claude Van Damme looks very fresh and fit.

The most important thing about the movie is its tempo which never makes you bored. Every moment of this film is enjoyable specially if you watch it with your friends. There are not too many explosions or car chases as usually action films are supposed to have. The Dog scene was traffic in which DOGS are hungry for fresh meat and that was also in the last scene which was perfectly filmed by Sheldon I like it too much.The part in which Jc and his partner are coaching the hard corps team is also very unique concept. Every body must watch this movie and specially anti jcvd's they will shut their mouth after watching this movie.
