Total Recall (1990)
One of Arnold's good sci-fi action movies, but not one of his best films - Overrated
Highly overrated sci-fi action film and one of Arnold's good sci-fi action films from the 90's. This movie is really way too praised and highly overrated. Even Arnold Schwarzenegger is saying this is his favorite film he did and that is so great, I disagree. I used to loved this film back in the days in my childhood as a kid. I loved that time Arnold as a hero and that was the movie for me. Watching this movie now as an adult I enjoy it less and less. I think is way violent film.
Schwarzenegger and Ironside kills so many people that it Is insane. The only good thing about this movie is actress Sharon Stone. She stole the show, her acting was brilliant as Lori Quaid. She is the reason why I think this movie is good. She is the only reason to watch this movie. The special effects, the story, visual effects are brilliant in the film. I like the idea about traveling on Mars and saving Mars. I like that a man is been chased by these bad guys and he becomes an secret agent. The first hour was alright and exciting but the second hour really drags it self and becomes boring. The movie drags it self and takes me out of the movie. I don't get why Douglas Quaid had to start the reactor that was build by aliens in the mines and saves Mars so that everyone get's an air? Why the scientist didn't do that in the first place? They could at least go Vilos Cohaagen behind his back and start the reactor, than they would gave to everyone an air.
I like the puppetry and dolls they made in this movie, some of the action sequences but that's it. The fight between Lori and Melina was entertaining. I like that scene with puppetry lifelike mask of a large woman, the masks opens and Quaids head becomes visible and throws the mask to the soldiers "Get ready for a surprise!" and the mask explodes in the soldiers' faces excellent action explosion sequence. That is the only good memorable action sequence in the film.
Paul Verhoeven, Philip K. Dick, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sharon Stone were good, the rest of the crew wasn't that great and the film it self wasn't that great. It was at least miles better than 2012 remake with that they ruined this film. I like Total Recall (1990) okay as a timewaster, but is not my favorite sci-fi action or Arnold film. P
The Predator (2018)
Peace a garbage a complete joke and disaster of a movie Predator is now a joke of a clown
I knew this was coming. Who are those people who gave this movie a 9 or 6 or so on? This movie is a STINKER garbage a box office bomb. How this movies is better than Predator 2 or AVP: Alien vs. Predator? Predator in this movie is a joke and a clown. They are 2 Predators, you have unlikable characters, horrendous dialogues that I would like to scream. Predator doesn't do anything trough inter movie, but runs like a coward little girl away. You have a team of commandos who are loony's mentally ill people and they don't die until 1 hr and 20 mins which sucks. Predator the first one in this movie doesn't hunt people, he hunts only that annoying little kid that I hate so damn much. Those guys try to kill him, he doesn't do nothing but let them go.
Comes the second Predator, kills the first Predator and goes after those commandoes. You have a woman in this movie who suppose to be a scientist and she acts, like she is some bimbo from a striptease club. This kid is the star of the movie, he is so annoying as hell, he irritates me so much!!! Jacob Tremblay that is his name. He is a horrible, horrendous actor, he cant act, he destroyed this movie with his whining!! He shows up on the end of the film in the government faculty, his father shows up, who is unlikable hero Boyd Holbrook in this film and this kid gives him high five, acts like he is now a scientist when he is not! He shouldn't be in this government facility at all! Than we see a Predator suit and Boyd Holbrook says "o that's my new suit!" I hate Shane Black so much I hate you! What happened Shane Black? I will tell you what happened Fred Dekker happened! That guy keeps running sequels after sequels. He ruined Robocop 3 and he ruined this stinker movie. I hate you Fred Dekker!!!
The second predator is only on the hunt for a space ship, destroys the ship and than runs away, like a whinny little girl. Boyd Holbrook has help now by fighting Predator a stupid scientists woman Olivia Moon. Can't Boyd Holbrook fight his battles him self? What kind actor is this guy? Death scenes are laughable and ridicules, CGI lousy affects that are unbelievable, You have Thomas Jane in this movie and he makes fool out of him self? He refused "The Punisher" sequel but he make this movie?! Cowardly move Jane! Yvonne Strahovski from Chuck is in this movie and she is useless, I thought she is the star of the movie or the heroine sadly no! Jake Busey is in this movie son of Gary Busey who played Mr. Joshua in Lethal Weapon and Peter Keyes FBI agent in Predator 2. Jake Busey is cut out of the movie he isn't the star either or in here at all. This is disgrace to Peter Keys character!
This movie is nothing but a disrespect to John McTiernan, Jim Thomas, John Thomas who gave us Predator 1 and Predator 2. AVPR: Aliens vs Predator - Requiem is better movie than The Predator (2018) and that movie is an awful horrible, but is better than this movie. The Predator (2018) is a horrible garbage disrespectful stinker trash, I wish I would had this movie on DVD or Blu-ray so I could break it!!!
Lethal Weapon (1987)
"Well, I haven't killed you yet." - My personal favorite 80's buddy cop action flick of all time
Today is my birthday 28th December, while celebrating I watch another 80's action personal favorite action buddy cop flick of all time Lethal Weapon (1987). I love, love this film to death. The one and the only best film in the franchise and 80's with First Blood (1982), Rambo: First Blood Part II, Cobra, Commando, Predator, RoboCop, Aliens, The Terminator and Die Hard, it is filled with Lethal bad-ass action sequences that you think and imagine your in the movie. It is filled with rush, excitement, entertainment, it has Christmas, Mel Gibson, Danny Glover and Gary Busey in the most excitement action flick of all time. It is Roger's 50 birthday in this movie so we both have birthday today.
Lethal Weapon was written by Shane Black (Predator) and directed from Richard Donner who directed great this film. It has ton's of action, references back on Vietnam war, explosions gun battles. There is a lot of automatic weapons, grenades, hand guns and they are used well.
This movie spawned 3 sequels and a TV series, so popular this movie become. It is very fun action film. It has little humor, action and little drama in it. It is filled with so many classic moments: I love the desert action sequences that was the best in the film. When Riggs and Murtaugh attempt to rescue Murtaugh's daughter Rianne (Traci Wolfe) in the desert, Riggs uses Heckler & Koch PSG-1 sniper rifle, like a sniper he is and kills many bad guys. Rianne steals a limousine and a chopper chases her. I love the torture scene in which Mr. Joshua (Gary Busey) tortures Riggs under the shower Electric Shock torture memorable scene. You can see this scene in The Last Boy Scout (1991) with Bruce Willis in which his daughter Darien is watching this movie. Great explosion you see Dixie's house been blow practical effect, real explosion. I love the music tune theme by Michael Kamen.
Lethal Weapon (1987) and the first Die Hard (1988) are the best action movies ever made. I miss the '80's , this was my childhood film with Under Siege (1992) I watched them constantly as a kid. This was Mel Gibson's action movie with The Road Warrior (1981) that made him in to an action star. Predator 2 and Lethal Weapon made Danny Glover in to action star. The best bad-ass is Gary Busey as Mr. Joshua as bad-ass character. The man can play so well.
A young girl jumps out of the building and kill her self. LAPD Sergeant Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover) get's the case and find's out, she is a daughter of one of his Vietnam buddy's back from Nam who saved his life. Murtaugh is calm type and family man, decides to work on this case to find a clue. He get's team up with LAPD Detective Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson), a cop and former Special Forces sniper who lives on the ragged edge and who is a suicidal transfer from narcotics to homicide. The suicide of a young girl turns out to be a murder, she was poisoned by overdose they uncover a drug smuggling ring that involves a criminal gang comprised of mercenaries and former members of a CIA / special forces "Black Ops" unit with ties to the Vietnam War. These guys will turn up the heat. The fight between Mr. Joshua and Riggs is a bad-ass in the finale I love it.
For the people who hate Christmas: "Goddamn Christmas!" Mr. Joshua (Gary Busey) shoots a T.V. displaying a Christmas commercial with his Colt XM177 Commando at Murtaugh's home. He destroys a police car with his machine riffle. For me Gary Busey steals the show. I love the guy and love he re teamed with Danny Glover in Predator 2. I miss these kind of movies action type now days. Today is nothing but lousy, lazy CGI. I want movies like this back: First Blood, Rambo: First Blood Part II, Cobra, Lethal Weapon, Predator, The Terminator, Bloodsport, Kickboxer, Cyborg, Aliens, Die Hard, The Terminator, RoboCop, The Killer and many more action movies from the 80's those are my movies that I enjoy watching them.
Lethal Weapon (1987) is the best bad-ass action flick from the 80's my all time favorite action film. I love, love this film to death. A bus hit's a bad-guys car and his car with grenades explodes bad-ass best explosion sequence in the film ever. I have this film on Blu-ray theatrical cut and Director's cut on VHS I prefer the theatrical cut of the movie.
Meng long guo jiang (1972)
Simply the best Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris martial arts film ever in the history my second personal Bruce Lee favorite film
Seriously one of the best martial arts kung fu films of all time mostly because of Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris. This is a beautiful film, well choreographed, I love Bruce Lee's character so much Tang Lung. He smiles, he doesn't kill anyone in the movie. He uses darts against his opponents, but refuse to kill. He uses sticks, bo and nunchakus in self defense against Italian mobsters. It was great directed by Bruce Lee the legend him self. He loved Rome in Italy he loved the places the locations, so he decide to shoot the film in Italy. The Way of the Dragon or Return of the Dragon it is one of the best of Chuck Norris and Bruce Lee. Bruce Lee discovered Chuck Norris talent and made him in to a star.
The dubbing about this movie isn't that great, it was horrible dubbed, but I watch it anyway. This was really my third Bruce Lee movie I saw a s kid. I did not like Fist of Fury or The Chinese Connection (1972) before this movie come out. I thought that movie was way too violent, I thought Bruce Lee character's was more aggressive bully who just wanted to proof something. That's why I like Jet Li's Fist of Legend (1994) remake I liked Jet Li's character more.
Return of the Dragon is Bruce Lee's best film along with Enter the Dragon my number 1 of Bruce Lee will always be Enter the Dragon while Return of the Dragon is the second favorite film of mine. Those 2 are the best that Bruce Lee ever did. I love the legend he is the best martial arts kung fu expert ever. He was teaching his class mates for free. No one does that, I had to pay my classes in karate. And my teacher was upset and angry at me, because I did not pay his teaching classes I didn't know that time, I had to pay them I was just a teen.
The best of the film is the showdown between Chuck and Bruce Lee it was in coliseum. Well choreographed from Bruce and well directed, the fight was for real which I love in the film. Nora Miao as Chen Ching Hua was excellent as Bruce Lee's cousin I like her, she was better than most of the actresses today.
The movie is about a martial arts expert who visits his relatives at their restaurant in Italy and has to help them defend against brutal gangsters harassing them.
The music score is excellent. The fights a real and very realistic, no CGI or wires effects. Bruce Lee's character is decent better than he was in The Big Boss or The Chinese Connection in which his character kills people. In this movie beside Chuck, Bruce Lee doesn't kill anyone. It was excellent acted from everyone. It was Bruce's first movie as the director and of course the setting was in Italy in coliseum the fight was set there and it was awesome. This movie made Chuck Norris in to an action star. Bruce Lee was the reason Chuck come in to the movies. This one is one of my favorite Chuck Norris films. I got this movie on DVD and I own it on the DVD. 10/10 I would have give an 11 but you can only score to 10
Enter the Dragon (1973)
My second personal favorite martial arts tournament film Bruce Lee's best one of all time
Since I reviewed all Jean-Claude Van Damme films, I decide to review and talk about another best martial arts Kung Fu expert of all time Bruce Lee! Enter the Dragon is my second personal favorite martial arts tournament film, of all time. It is the best martial arts tournament from the 70's a powerful film! Enter the Dragon is my number 1 Bruce Lee film, it is my childhood film I grew up with it. This is my movie, I love, love this film to death I love it. Enter the Dragon and Bloodsport (1988) are the only best martial arts tournament movies of all time! Enter the dragon is the best martial arts movie from Bruce Lee, it was his final film before, he past away at age 32 I really miss the legend.
The films stars: Bruce Lee, John Saxon, Jim Kelly, Betty Chung, Robert Wall, Shih Kien and Bolo Yeung.
Enter the Dragon (1973) is my second personal favorite martial arts tournament film with Bloodsport. I am fan of Bruce Lee and Bruce Lee is the best martial artist expert ever. His kicks are fast with speed and un touchable. The best memorable sequence in the movie, is in which Oharra (Robert Wall) throws a board in the air and smashes it with his fist and Bruce Lee says: "Boards don't hit back." The fight between those two guys Oharra and Lee is amazing in the film. It was excellent in which Bruce Lee jumps with his leg and kicks Oharra so hard with one flying kick in his stomach so fast that Oharra fly's away and knocks down three guys behind his back, best martial arts sequence in the film ever. Bruce Lee really hit Jackie Chan on his head and really hurt him. Now days I don't see any martial arts tournament movies like this one anymore, they are just lousy lazy CGI effect movies.
The plot is about a kung fu expert Lee (Bruce Lee) who agrees to go undercover for an agency on a private island owned from an ex Shaolin master, who holds a martial arts tournament every 3 years.
The fights, the stunts are realistic, they are for real, no wires, no CGI, no stunt doubles just real fights, real actions. Everything is done practical and for real. Bruce Lee really did hit his opponents. His best weapon was using nunchakus. Bruce lee Vs Han (Kien Shih) was the best fight sequence in the movie ever! John Saxon is Roper from A Nightmare on Elm Street in this movie who becomes Lee's friend and fights Bolo Yeung on the end of the film. Jim Kelly is Williams from Black Belt Jones in this movie he is Roper's friend. His best scene is in the movie in which he fights Han's guards off. Best lines ever: "Man, you come right out of a comic book." He fights off with Han that was excellent fight sequence. Great music score from Lalo Schifrin one of the best 70's Kung Fu martial arts films of all time.
Jean-Claude Van Damme, Bruce Lee and Bolo Yeung are to me the best martial arts experts, I love those three guys. Bolo Yeung did work on movie sets with both two martial arts experts Jean-Claude Van Damme and Bruce Lee. He was on the set in this film. On filming of this film, Bolo really become close friends with Bruce Lee. Bolo Yeung says nothing but nice things about Bruce Lee. I watched this movie in 1992 when I was a kid, end of school year with all my class mates. My class mate gave us this movie, as a present when we finished first class best memories ever. Bloodsport and Enter the Dragon were my inspiration on martial arts, how to defend my self against bully's. I saw both of the movies in 1992 on VHS tapes, when I was a 8 year old kid. Jean-Claude Van Damme is my number 1 favorite action star who also says nothing, but nice things about Bruce Lee, Bruce was also Van Damme's inspiration for studying martial arts.
Enter the Dragon (1973) and Bloodsport (1988) are the only best martial arts tournament movies of all time, they are my movies. Bloodsport (1988) with Jean-Claude Van Damme is my number 1 and Enter Dragon is my second personal favorite best martial arts tournament film and my number 1 Bruce Lee film of all time, it is my childhoods film I grew up with it.
It is finally over, I really do wish Jean-Claude Van Damme best in his future movie projects, his life and his health
My Jean-Claude Van Damme movie marathon is finally over. This is the last movie I will ever watch from Van Damme. I re watched all his movies and review them all from 1986 till now 2018. I am a huge number 1 Van Damme fan, that's why I did it. My number 1 personal favorite action film of his is Hard Target (1993), I love that film to death and I love the guy and the action star legend. He is my favorite action star with Sylvester Stallone. I really do wish Jean-Claude Van Damme's best in his future movie projects, his life and his health. I am not going to watch We Die Young (2018) his new movie coming up and reviewing it. Because I think Van Damme is only going to make dramas from now on, no more action movies, it is not for me I am an action guy.
About the movie The Bouncer aka. Lukas whole movie is a mess and it is wrong because they didn't know what title to use. The film was filmed in Belgium near Jean-Claude Van Damme's hometown. Trough whole movie you see blue and yellow colors because he is in the club. The film has nothing to do with been the bouncer. IMDb doesn't know what the story is in this movie. Van Damme is only In the opening sequence a bouncer in the disco club, a drunk costumer accidently dies and Van Damme is blamed and fired. Only parent of a child, he goes working for this night club to support his only daughter and he becomes a bodyguard for the owner and an escort. Un aware he is been blackmailed by a cop to work for his new boss as undercover so that he want go to prison for a man slaughter of that drunk costumer. It is more a drama in which Van Damme is undercover in realistic drama and it is about money counterfeit.
The only good thing about this movie is Jean-Claude Van Damme and his acting performance but the movie is messy. I also do miss the old Jean-Claude Van Damme from the 80's and 90's I know he is barely 60 but if Stallone is in a shape and can do it his own stunts so why not Van Damme do the same? There is barely any action in the film. Fight scenes are un realistic it looks like a stunt double is doing fights for Van Damme of course camera is hiding it. Van Damme barely uses one gun in his hand. There is not much of action or action sequences.
I only wish there would be enough action in the film and I also wish it would have been a happy ending. I wish Van Damme wouldn't stood there like some stone cold zombie when that girl was killed and show some remorse, but he didn't. I wish we could see a better story and a better plot, better action. I did not like Van Damme driving his daughter to a gangster meeting and than she was kidnapped, I did not like that. That was irresponsible, what kind a father does that to his own child?
I don't know the ending does Van Damme survives or does he sees his own daughter the last time? The movie doesn't show us that. I wish that Lukas (Van Damme) and Lisa would have survived on the end, would take the money, Lukas daughter and start a new life that would have been a better ending. Van Damme doesn't die in this movie. The action and drama are terrible half language is French and English you need a better subtitles to understand what the cast is saying. Unless you know French, I sure don't.
Lukas (2018) aka The Bouncer, has nothing to do with the title or his occupation, he is only in the begging the bouncer, than he is a mule and a bodyguard. I don't like Lukas, I don't hate the movie, like I hate Van Damme's last movies he did from 2014 till 2018. I am giving 5 stars, because of Van Damme's serious role and serious acting performance, I don't want to gave it a 1, like I did most of his new movies.
Here are better action movies with drama than Lukas: The Killer (1989), A Better Tomorrow (1986), Hard Boiled (1992), King of New York (1990), Heat (1995) those are better action movies filled with drama. They are Miles way better than Lukas (2018).
Black Water (2018)
Poor "Die Hard" on a submarine, used plot, cheap bad awful flick one of Van Damme and Lundgren's worst films
Horrible movie. One of Van Damme and Lundgren's worst films together ever. This is a cheap used plot it is a spy thriller on a submarine who becomes "Die Hard" on the submarine under the sea. The plot is used Van Damme keeps making this cheap movies. I would say Black Water is better than Seagal's Submerged (2005) that was a STINKER. Black Water is another garbage STINKER Van Damme is doing today. He keeps on disappointing and keeps sucking in his movies. I am tired of lame cheap films he is doing now days. It is really disgrace. The poster is wrong, there is no storm with submarine and there is no explosion in the movie like the poster is showing. Why is Van Damme with red sunglasses in all his movies now?!
He uses stunt doubles in his fights they are not believable anymore, rather than laughable. Dolph Lundgren isn't in the film so much, he poops up here and disappears. I was planning to gave him a pass but on the end of the film, he killed a young woman Mel at point blank with silencer order by Van Damme. So I can't gave Dolph a pass, his performance was as bad as Van Damme is. Because she set up Van Damme she was his lover but she didn't kill anyone. She could have killed that girl Agent Cass Taylor (Jasmine Waltz) and she didn't, but she got shot on the end. The girl didn't kill anyone but she was killed by Lundgren? I hate this movie! Lundgren uses the same famous catch praise line form Universal Soldier (1992) only that he reverse the words. I don't like Van Damme and Lundgren make fool out of them self's. Van Damme let his partner to die, he just left him. In the opening sequence they killed off his gf Mel and he did not show any emotion or remorse. He is an emotionless stone cold zombie in this movie. He smiles only once by the end of the movie.
Van Damme's son Kris is all the time in Van Damme's movies why can't the guy stops been in his father shadow and start making his own movies like Brandon Lee did. The plot is about some hidden device that Van Damme hide it somewhere and Rhodes (Al Sapienza) is after Van Damme in the submarine because, he wants to get the money for him self. Patrick Kilpatrick from Van Damme's Death Warrant (1990) is in this movie in a minor supporting role and he gets killed off soon. Van Damme impersonates Seagal in Under Siege with knife fights. The action sequences are awful, horrible, the movie get's boring by time to time.
Van Damme keeps ripping off story's from different movies now and he is in all these movies! I am done with submarine movies. I would rather watch Crash Dive (1996) with Michael Dudikoff. Michael Dudikoff was better action star than Van Damme. Crash Dive (1996) was a MILES way better direct-to-video action flick than Black Water. It was better "Die Hard" on submarine and got crap for it. Crash Dive is MILES way better than Black Water (2018)!!! I would rather watch John McTiernan's The Hunt For Red October (1990) with Sean Connery, million times better movie than Black Water. Or even Crimson Tide (1996) with Denzel Washington and Gene Hackman MILES way better movie than Black Water!
This is Van Damme and Lundgren's worst movie in my opinion: Only 2 good movies they did together those are: Universal Solder (1992) action classic that I love to death and The Expendables 2. Van Damme's voice was partially dubbed, but he was good in the movie.
I love those 2 guys Van Damme and Lundgren I am a huge number 1 Jean-Claude Van Damme fan, I love his movies: Bloodsport, Kickboxer, Cyborg, Hard Target, Lionheart, Death Warrant, Double Impact, Universal Soldier, Timecop, Maximum Risk, Double Team, Universal Soldier: The Return even Knock Off. I love Hard Target (1993) Jean-Claude Van Damme's number 1 personal favorite action film of mine. I enjoy his Direct-to-video flicks: Replicant, The Order, In Hell, Enemies Closer, Until Death, Wake of Death, Second in Command, JCVD, 6 Bullets, The Shepherd: Border Patrol even bad film Welcome to the Jungle I liked.
Dolph Lundgren my father is a huge fan of Dolph and I love Dolph's movies: Dark Angel, The Punisher, Showdown in Little Tokyo, Joshua Tree, Skin Trade, I love Skin Trade to death. Those movies from these 2 guys I love.
Black Water, I hate and it is not for me, but I am not angry like I was with Pound Flesh and Kill'em All. Black Water (2018) is poor "Die Hard" on a submarine, used plot, cheap bad awful flick one of Van Damme and Lundgren's worst films!
Pound of Flesh (2015)
Van Damme keeps pounding on me with his cheap bad-awful direct-to-video flicks
Van Damme keeps pounding on me with his horrendous cheap awful direct-to-video flicks. I am tired of his damn new direct-to-video movies!! His movies nowadays are getting worse and worse. His career is over. Thank god they are only 2 movies left for my Van Damme movie marathon. I am twitching, I am tired, exhausted of this cheap movies Van Damme nowadays is making. Van Damme can't make movies anymore. During fight sequences between Van Damme and his opponents that's not Van Damme those are stunt doubles for Van Damme. I want too see Van Damme kicking ass, he didn't.
Ernie Barbarash get away from Jean-Claude Van Damme, this was the third movie Van Damme did with Ernie Barbarash. I hated Assassination Games and I hate this movie. The only good and decent action thriller movie I liked from those 2 was Six Bullets (2012), the only good movie with Van Damme and Barbarash making together! On the end of the movie when you see a shooting action sequences and you see Van Damme firing in the hat and sun glasses with a gun, that is not a Van Damme it is his stunt double!! His stunt doubles are doing action sequences for Van Damme him self and his stunt double looks like Mel Gibson as Martin Riggs from Lethal Weapon 2, with those sun glasses and hat and that's not Jean-Claude Van Damme! Jean-Claude grabs his bother for his leg in the car during car chases like they are gay. I know Van Damme is not gay but that was a gay scene! Van Damme is naked in the opening scene. We have nudity and we have a sex scene between Van Damme and a prostitute.
I hate this movie to death! I hate this movie, I hate it!!! Boring action, poor plot, green colors trough the movie. Trough whole movie it was chase for Van Damme's kidney for his brother's daughter. God, news flash that plot was used already. Watch Dilemma (1997) with C. Thomas Howell and Danny Trejo and that movie was MILES way better than Pound of Flesh! 2 religious brothers and Van Damme's brother wanted to kill an 11 year old kid with a shot gun disgrace!!!!!!
I have no words anymore but Van Damme's career is over. Van Damme keeps on disappointing me. Pound of Flesh is a STINKER pure garbage!!! I don't have this movie in my Blu-ray collection. I am so angry at Van Damme and I am his huge number 1 fan that is why I am reviewing and watching all his movies. I review almost all of his movies except the new one Black Water and The Bouncer aka. Lukas.
Kill'em All (2017)
Van Damme keep on disappointing with his stunt doubles, his lazy, lousy movies, he can't make his own fights anymore this movie sucks...
I am so angry right now and tired of this garbage movies Van Damme keeps making today, I am so tired of watching his direct-to-video movies. I am twitching, I can't speak anymore. Van Damme keeps on disappointing with his stunt doubles, his corny acting. He is a horrible hero. Impersonates John Wick, he try's to play John Wick assassin. Keanu Reeves is better action star than Van Damme! Watching his fights, he's kicks with his leg is doing his stunt double. Van Damme fights with his son Kris Van Damme and Jean-Claude doesn't gave 100% of him self, his son does. I respect more Kris now than Jean-Claude. The fight between Daniel Bernhardt and Van Damme could have been spectacular but no, it wasn't! Most of the fight sequence it wasn't Van Damme in it.
I respect Daniel Bernhardt than Van Damme him self. Yes I am a huge number 1 Jean-Claude Van Damme fan. I came to see Van Damme kicking ass. Sadly this movie disappointed me, Van Damme disappointed me and not only with his stunt doubles. Van Damme is emotionless stone cold killer zombie in here, he kills everyone. His dialogues are lazy and lousy. It takes 30 mins in the movie till Van Damme even speaks, he talks like a zombie.
This suppose to be "Die Hard" in a hospital sadly it wasn't. The movie sucks, is not good. Van Damme's Philip is in a killing spree in the hospital Suzanne (Autumn Reeser) tells the story to F.B.I. what happened inside the hospital. Everyone is dead it turns out Suzanne, killed 2 assassins, she claims it was self defense. We find out back story about Philip how he become an assassin. At the point the movie become a revenge movie in a "Die Hard" hospital. A guy killed Philip's father. I hated the twist in which Philip wasn't a bodyguard guardian ex Serbian Minster Petrovic (Eddie Matthews) that was attacked it was him Philip attacked him, he was an assassin he try to kill Petrovic after 30 years to take revenge on his father's murder. Agent Mark Holman (Peter Stormare) and Suzanne (Autumn Reeser) are working with Philip (Van Damme) he become a leader now of "Black Hand" Serbian assassins, that's why he killed all of them: Petrovic and his team of assassins and not for revenge. Suzanne and Holman helped him. We did not need to know Phillip's back story at all. María Conchita Alonso from The Running Man (1987) and Predator 2 (1990) is in this movie in the minor role and she has nothing to do in the film at all.
I hate the twist, I hate this movie and I hate Peter Malota, for making this cheap horrible movie. I am glad I don't have this movie in Blu-ray collection I should have got it, lucky I didn't. Me and my supplier break down our contract. I did and I didn't got this movie so thank god!
Another thing that makes really angry about this movie and really offensives me: they are explaining history about Yugoslavia and that Van Damme's was after the fall of Yugoslavia in that country a s a kid and his father was assassinated and than he was moved in to Austria. Van Damme is from Belgium, he never was in Yugoslavia, I was there. I was a kid when Yugoslavia fall down, I didn't saw the war my parents hid me, but the point was I was there. Van Damme wasn't. Please stop putting an actor who never saw the war in Yugoslavia in the movies. This movie offenses me so much. I hate this god damn awful STINKER of a movie.
I would rather watch Shadowchaser (1992) that was also "Die Hard" in a hospital and MILES way better action movie. Hard Boiled (1992) was also "Die Hard" in the hospital and it MILES better action movie. I would rather watch John Carpenter's Ghosts of Mars (2001) than Kill'em All (2017)! I am done with Van Damme and I had it with his new movies.
Garbage - one of the worst action movies of all time even Van Damme can't save this STINKER
Swelter (2014) is a garbage peace a junk one of the worst action movies Van Damme ever did. This movie is more crime drama, try's to be a western, crime heist movie in a Quentin Tarantino world, but it isn't. 5 guys robbed casino in Las Vegas. 1 escaped, 4 guys were caught, 2 got of parole, the other 2 are escaped convicts, they had it to this desert town, where their leader accomplice Lennie James is now a lawman with no memory of his criminal past and he stole $10,000,000 from them.
Jean-Claude Van Damme is in a supporting role, his character is one of the bad guys. He is not much in the film. He try's to protect two women but he is stabbed by his partner and than he disappears from the rest of the movie, that was it. Try's to be a crime - western movie and it wasn't. It is a boring STINKER. I have seen better action heist movies than Swelter. Cop Land (1997) with Sylvester Stallone is a MILES way better western action movie than Swelter!!!!
Lennie James from The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead is the star of the movie and the main lead Van Damme isn't a hero. There is not much action in the film. It is more drama, no excitement nothing. Lennie James try's to be lawman who was once a criminal, but does a lame job. You have church in which a group of people burning down just why? Why a church had to be burned down in this movie? You have a guy who shoots a snake with Berretta gun just for fun. What did a snake did to the guy on this movie? This movie is so offensive, brutal cruel movie I have ever seen. Jean-Claude Van Damme can't save this movie from drowning. Alfred Molina is in this movie from Spider-Man 2 and he is a good actor, but like Van Damme he has nothing much to do in the movie.
If I want to watch a good heist movies I will rather watch Michael Mann's Heat (1995) with Al Pacino and Robert De Niro. Point Break (1991) with Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze, Baby Driver (2017) and Sleepless (2017). The Stranger (1995) is a MILES way better action movie than Swelter and that movie get's crap for it. Those are good action heist, western-crime movies not Swelter. I don't know what is with the title Swelter? The Hitcher (1986) with Ruther Hauer is a much better movie than Swelter. This is bad, awful, cheap lame peace a junk garbage movie! I don't have this movie in my collection, this movie sucks. Van Damme still dies, he has nothing to do. He is not the hero, I never bought the film in my collection and it can kiss my ass.
The Wild Bunch (1969): the sheriff's name is Pike Bishop. Sam Peckinpah's masterpiece and Pike Bishop sounds familiar from The Wild Bunch movie. Lennie James impersonate Pike Bishop character.
Assassination Games (2011)
One of Jean-Claude Van Damme's worst direct-to-video action hitman movies I have ever seen
Assassination Games sucks one of the worst direct-to-video action hitman movies I have ever seen. I have seen a lot of hit man action movies this simply destroys the movie and makes it worse. Jean-Claude Van Damme and Scott Adkins gave their worst performances of their life's! The fight between Van Damme and Adkins is not realistic, mostly stunt double is doing the fights for Van Damme. Jean-Claude looks like a stone cold emotionless zombie in this movie. A girl is killed in his apartment and he doesn't even show any remorse at all. Watch him in Wake of Death in which Ben Archer played by Van Damme finds his wife murdered and cry's. In this movie he doesn't cry at all.
Directed was by Ernie Barbarash who made a lousy movie and it was produced by Bianca Van Varenberg, Van Damme's daughter and this movie stinks. One of Van Damme's worst movies. I liked 6 Bullets his next movie that was directed by the same guy of this movie Ernie Barbarash. Assassination Games is the most overrated movie does not deserve 6.2 on IMDb. This movie is filtered as yellow, whole picture is yellow colored like someone pie on the filter and camera. Whole movie is yellow. This movie come out before Dragon Eyes which both of the movies had such a horrible colors in it. Gray, brown and yellow colors really insane.
So I am watching pictures now on IMDb about this movie and they do not show color yellow. On IMDb this pictures about this movie are normal but when you watch the movie they are yellow. I guess Ernie Barbarash thought it was a good idea putting yellow color in the movie, it wasn't. The acting in this movie is terrible, the story is flat. These guys Interpol are chasing Adkins because they want the money he stole from them, trough whole movie we don't see Adkins caring a money. Zero chemistry between the leads (Adkins and Van Damme). Zero action sequence, lousy lazy fight sequence, lousy dialogues it has no excitement it is nothing rather just lazy yellow color boring film.
I will rather watch: John Woo's The Killer (1989) and The Replacement Killers (1998) with Chow Yun-Fat miles way better movies than Assassination Games, Chuck Norris The Hitman (1991), Collateral (2004), Assassins (1995) with Sylvester Stallone and Antonio Banderas that was a hit man movie not Assassination Games! Van Damme and Adkins should he been rivals in this movie and try to kill each other, not re team each other. At one point Van Damme set up Adkins, but the next time he saved his life and Adkins forgives him so quickly? What kind a person is Adkins character? Bianca Van Varenberg is this movie, she plays Anna Flint wife of Adkins and she is a stone cold zombie in this movie. She just lies their on the bed like she is dead. One of Bianca Van Varenberg's worst acting performance I have ever seen. I seen better actresses than her.
Sorry too the fans I hate this goddamn movie, but I am not sorry I will never, ever watch this movie again, one of Jean-Claude Van Damme worst movies I have ever seen and I have seen a lot. Even my gf hated this movie after she bought the DVD's for her collection so horrible painful to watch this movie is.
JCVD is Van Damme's best movie he ever did, he deserves an Oscar
In my opinion JCVD is Jean-Claude Van Damme's best movie he ever did. Because after this movie, his movie become worse and worse. I am a huge number 1 Jean-Claude Van Damme fan I love the guy to death. I grew up watching his movies, he is my childhood hero. He is a nice guy and he is an animal lover, he loves dogs just like me, he has 9 dogs and kitty so I love him. JCVD is not an action movie it is realistic dramatic film and Jean-Claude Van Damme plays him self that is the best part in the movie.
In this movie Jean-Claude Van Damme is real JCVD he is real. He is nice, he fights for the custody of his daughter, he has tax problems, he fly's from USA back to his hometown Belgium and he is actually in a hostage situation held against his will by 3 armed robbers in the post office. I like, like this film a lot. Van Damme has had real-life difficulties getting custody of his daughter and righting his tax problems, so JCVD is an apt imagining of his troubles. If you watched his performance in Friends Season 2: The One After the Superbowl Part 2 I would say in that movie he was arrogant, selfish and big egoist who played him self. I hated him in that episode. In here he is real a nice guy, who has a lot of problems, but helps people. JCVD is a masterpiece in my opinion. Say I am wrong but Van Damme did make mistakes in his life, that he is not proud of it and this movie really shows his mistakes, he is sorry about and his acting ability's. Everyone from the cast did a fine good job. Mabrouk El Mechri did great and competent job writing and directing the film.
Simply one of Jean-Claude Van Damme's best performance, he ever did. I agree he deserves an Oscar! Just like Stallone did in Rocky, Van Damme deserves an Oscar for JCVD. I love the opening sequence in which Van Damme plays a hero in his movie, he kicks asses on his movie set, those soldiers, fires with a gun, jumps like a hero he is, uses a knife and lay dead too fool the enemies. You have song playing in the opening scene. He shots with a gun bad guys, kicks some girl's ass excellent.
I like in which 2 fans talk in the video store about Sylvester Stallone in Rambo, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Steven Seagal, Mark Wahlberg and Jean-Claude Van Damme and that fan goes after Van Damme they shake their hands and take a picture together. I love how Van Damme is nice to his fans. I love his hair cut, I love in the middle of the film inside post office: I love the bond between Van Damme and a bank robber Vigile (Karim Belkhadra). They talk about John Woo's Hard Target my number 1 action film of all time and how Van Damme did not got the part in Face/Off (1997). I do agree John Woo was the reason why Van Damme become a bigger action star and with Windtalkers (2002) John Woo let us down. At one point Jean-Claude is blamed for the robbery. A bank teller accuses Van Damme that he cant get his own child and blames him because she was separated from her son. Jean-Claude is also judged and blamed from people he didn't do. that is realistic. That is why JCVD is a powerful realistic movie. Like Sylvester Stallone's Rocky and Rambo who are realistic movies, JCVD is realistic movie.
I love the third act in which at some moments he does quite well taking his acting, where it has never gone before. That he recently lost a role to Steven Seagal, who agreed to cut his pony tail for the part, is less an indictment of Jean-Claude Van Damme than it is a commentary on the vagaries of showbiz heroism. I love also how Jean-Claude reflects his life talks about his life, like we see him the last time. We also have a pair of actors who play JCVD's parents. Most of the part the language in here is French in which the cast and crew talk.
I love Jean-Claude Van Damme various films: Bloodsport, Kickboxer, Cyborg, Hard Target, Lionheart, Death Warrant, Double Impact, Universal Soldier, Maximum Risk, Timecop, Enemies Closer, The Order, In Hell, Replicant etc... JCVD is a knockout of 2008 and Jean-Claude Van Damme's best movie in my opinion.
Dragon Eyes (2012)
Dragon forgettable - it is a peace a garbage, not a Jean-Claude Van Damme movie
My raging rant on Dragon Eyes - This is easily forgettable flick I have ever seen! So I have watched this film to day I seen this film in 2012 when it come out I had high exceptions from Van Damme he is not in the film much at all. His character in the movie is useless. He is not the hero or the main lead or the star of the film at all. He is only in the flashbacks. The main star is Cung Le as Hong he is the hero while Tiano (Van Damme) is in prison with his sun glasses again. Why is Van Damme with sun glasses in his direct-to-video movies?
The film has brown, gray blend colors, the story is awful about some gangs in a city St. Jude lead by a corrupt cop and Hong pits 3 gangs at each other. Peter Weller is in this movie as the lead corrupt cop and he runs the city. Hong decides to clear the city. Van Damme is his trainer now and the movie does not explain what happened to his character at all.
The fights are un realistic, nothing happens in the movie. Cung Le as the lead role is horrible in this movie. I only watch the movie because I am making Jean-Claude Van Damme movie marathon I am huge Van Damme fan I love the guy and also love movies about gangs. But this movie really has nothing to offer except boredom, pointless fights, horrible brown blend grey colors. Horrendous actors except Jean-Claude Van Damme and Peter Weller from RoboCop 1 and 2 and Leviathan (1989) they were the only good part about the movie the rest sucks pretty much.
I would rather watch Angel Town (1990) with Olivier Gruner that was a real movie about street gangs. The Perfect Weapon (1991) and Street Knight (1993) with Jeff Speakman those 2 movies were about street gangs too. Dragon Eyes sucks it is not Jean-Claude Van Damme movie at all.
This movie is again directed by John Hyams son from Peter Hyams who is a good director but his son is a terrible director. John Hyams directed Universal Soldier: Regeneration and Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning I hated both of those 2 movies! John Hyams destroyed Luc Deveraux story ark mythology and my favorite character from Van Damme. Dragon Eyes is another wasted opportunity for Jean-Claude Van Damme again, the movie is a shameless peace garbage that belongs in the trash.
Welcome to the Jungle (2013)
Welcome to Van Damme Land - his decent adventure flick
Surprisingly I like the film which I think it is a decent adventure flick Jean-Claude Van Damme is the only good thing about this movie. I was really surprised by this movie how good it turned to be, it wasn't that bad like people were saying, I enjoy it - that is my opinion. This movie is not action, but it is adventure film and it has a humor. Jean-Claude Van Damme is great in this movie and he is the reason to watch this film. Adam Brody, Megan Boone and Jean-Claude Van Damme in this movie are really good.
No one died in this movie which is good. I really, really like in which Van Damme is attacked by a tiger on an island that was hilarious. I love the ending in which Van Damme uses a high kick on Phil's (Rob Huebel) head saving Chris life and that was practical effect real kick Van Damme real performed not stunt double did that kick I saw it. It was hilarious when Van Damme screams I really laughed at Van Damme.
The movie is about a company group who fly's to an remote island but their pilot of their plane dies and no one can fly a plane and no one knows where they are and their guide counselor Storm (Jean-Claude Van Damme) is eaten by a tiger. So now a company group coworker Phil (Rob Huebel) takes over the leadership of the group, drugs them and makes them in to a cannibal cult. The other team lead by Chris (Adam Brody) want to go on a separate way and they want to leave the island while Phil want's to stay and ruling the island. He doesn't see Chris (Adam Brody) as co worker anymore, but a treat. Chris, Brenda (Kristen Schaal), Lisa (Megan Boone) and Jared (Eric Edelstein) become a team on the other side of the island. They find Storm alive and they nurse him back. Now they decide to get the radio and leave a signal for a help but first they must fight with Phil and his army of thugs.
I really like the story, the adventure and the movie it self. I like Adam Brody and Megan Boone in the movie they were likeable characters and I just like the movie. I don't think it is so bad. I do wish Van Damme would have use more martial arts and his high kickbox kicks in the movie but his character survives. It is shame that it is written on IMDb genre action when it is not an action movie at all. I would say Tropic Thunder (2008) with Ben Stiller that movie has a lot of action and comedy and adventure that movie is action and not Welcoem to the Jungle and it is miles way better movie than this one, but this movie is still not bad. I do wish there would have be more action in to movie, more action sequences would have been fine, but it is what it is.
Welcome to the Jungle - Welcome to Van Damme Land is a decent adventure flick, I disagree with critics and haters about this movie. Van Damme tried something different and he succeeded at acting and he was good. He is acting performance was decent. Van Damme's son and daughter Kristopher Van Varenberg and Bianca Bree are also in this movie. The cast did all fine. Rob Meltzer did a competent directing job by directing this movie.
Kickboxer: Retaliation (2018)
A true insult to martial arts - makes Kickboxer Vengeance total masterpiece, copy's so many films on a offensive crappy way
My raging rant on Kickboxer: Retaliation - I think it is one of the worst sequels Van Damme ever did. This movie makes me really angry. I know Kickboxer: Vengeance make me angry because it copied 3 movies I counted but this movie ripped off 4 story's and insult human intelligence. Jean-Claude Van Damme was in Kickboxer: Vengeance his voice was dubbed and Van Damme used stunt doubles not all but in some scenes. But at least he had fun in that movie and he had much more to do in here he is a stone cold zombie. Van Damme now is wasted in this movie he is blind but suddenly he see every punch and kick while he is blind? That insults my intelligence. I hate this movie so damn much I hate this movie it is garbage - peace a trash.
Shameless copy's the story's from Michael Jai White's Undisputed II: Last Man Standing (2006), Kickboxer 4: The Aggressor, a scene with mirrors from Bruce Lee's Enter the Dragon (1973) and a name from Bloodsport III (1997). This is the first time in a Kickboxer sequel in which Kurt Sloane returns but the story's are the same. Just like Kickboxer: Vengeance copied and rips off 3 good movies this movie ripped off 4 movies on a insulting way. A true insults to martial arts with all CGI effects and not practical effects.
Kurt Sloane (Alain Moussi) is kidnapped, brought back to Thailand and pitted against Mongkut (Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson) by Thomas Moore (Christopher Lambert) against his will. Because Sloane refuses the challenge, his thrown in to Thailand jail for the murder of Tong Po. That story is copied from Undisputed II: Last Man Standing (2006) in which George Chambers (Michael Jai White) was framed for drugs in Russia and was thrown in to Russian prison against his will and pitted against Yuri Boyka (Scott Adkins) because he refused the fight his life becoming living hell just like Kurt Sloane's life was in this movie.
So now they decide to kidnapped his wife Liu (Sara Malakul Lane) to force him in to fight with Mongkut. That story was in Kickboxer 4: The Aggressor and people dislike that film a lot, I didn't, I like Kickboxer 4: The Aggressor a lot. This one I hate so much, Sloane goes in to rescue mission to save his wife just like David Sloane (Sasha Mitchell) did in Kickboxer 4: The Aggressor - we see that rescue mission again. You see Sloane fighting 2 Chinese chicks tattooed with dragons on their backs with blades in their hands and Sloane smashes mirrors just like Lee (Bruce Lee) did in Enter the Dragon. You have some guy called The Beast in which the name was copied from Bloodsport III. Sloane is thrown in to Thailand Jail for a murder just like Alex Cardo (Daniel Bernhardt) was in Thailand Prison in Bloodsport II: The Next Kumite (1996).
Van Damme was missing for 32 mins in the movie his not much in the movie. He doesn't do much in the movie. With one punch separately kicks 3 opponents at once and knocks them out so easy and un realistic. That was it from Van Damme? It looks like he wasn't in a shape at all. He cries on the end he has glasses and a hat again, his blind but see punches everywhere? that is offensive horrible. Mike Tyson is in this movie who trains Sloane but wait Tyson has to be in every movie now? The Hangover 1 and 2, China Salesman with Steven Seagal and now in here in an Van Damme Movie? I agree with Steve Stone Cold Austin I don't appreciate Mike Tyson either and I am sure Austin would have whooped his ass.
There are horrible lousy CGI effects for the fights scenes in this movie you can see they are all CGI effects. Sloane dies on the end by Mongkut but Liu gives him an injection and brings him back to life. How could she do that? That is impossible, un realistic and offensive it insults human intelligence!!!! You can't bring dead people back too live. In the fight sequence which was unrealistic between Sloane and Mongkut you see Sloane using a chain on his fist against Mongkut so now he needs a weapon to defeat his opponent? Disgrace and insult to martial arts!!! So low we come too now? Christopher Lambert is in this movie and he acts now like Connor MacLeod from Highlander in this movie. Kurt Sloane kills people now he has to kill people all over again? , he is a killer now.
This movie insults my intelligence it belongs to trash. I don't have this film in Blu-ray collection or Kickboxer Vengeance and I never will have it. Kickboxer Vengeance and Kickboxer: Retaliation are both horrendous martial arts films I have ever seen. I would rather watch: Kickboxer (1989) original movie, Kickboxer 4: The Aggressor, The King of the Kickboxers, Bloodfist I and II, Enter the Dragon, Undisputed II: Last Man Standing (2006), Undisputed III: Redemption (2010) or Various Van Damme films Bloodsport, Kickboxer, Cyborg, Hard Target, Lionheart, Death Warrant, Double Impact, Universal Soldier etc...
Kickboxer: Vengeance (2016)
A shameless copy of Van Damme's Kickboxer, The King of the Kickboxers and Bloodfist on a offensive insulting way
I am so tired of these movies Jean-Claude Van Damme is doing today. Kickboxer: Vengeance was unnecessary reboot. 89 Kickboxer did not need to be remade. I hate this movie so much!!!! I just saw a scene in which actor Alain Moussi copied from "The King of the Kickboxers" I can not believe it, this move stole a scene from The King of the Kickboxers. This is a horrible awful true insult to Kickboxer, The King of the Kickboxers and Bloodfist. This is a copycat of Van Damme's Kickboxer, The King of the Kickboxers and Bloodfist on a offensive insulting way.
We did not need 2 reboots at all why was this movie made at all? This movie ripped off Kickboxer, Bloodfist, The King of the Kickboxers on an offensive insulting way. Everything about this movie is wrong and offensive. I have seen better Kickboxer movies than this STINKER movie. This is one of the worst Jean-Claude Van Damme movies he ever did. His voice is dubbed on an offensive way. He wears hat and a sun glasses just why? The fights are un realistic since when Kurt Sloan kills at all? The original Kurt Sloane played by Van Damme did not kill Tong Po or any person at all. They killed off Eric Sloane (Darren Shahlavi) R.I.P. in the original movie Eric Sloane played by Dennis Alexio was alive but only paralyzed. In Kickboxer 2: The Road back both Kurt and Eric were killed. This is the second time Eric was killed. Why I said they ripped off "The King of the Kickboxers" story? because in that movie in the opening scene Khan (Billy Blanks) kills brother kickboxer of a young boy who witness the murder and later grows up to be a cop and a kickboxer and goes back to Thailand on a revenge spree and trains to face against Khan. This movie rips the story from that movie.
When Kurt and Van Damme escape from prison that scene was copied from Bloodfist in which Wilson's character escapes from prison. So Yes I hate this movie because the story is not original. Where is Xian Chow played by Dennis Chan in this? Where is Freddy Li played by Ka Ting Lee? Where is Mylee played by Rochelle Ashana in this? Where is Winston Taylor played by Haskell V. Anderson III in this? They are not in here in this movie at all.
Music in this movie is goddamn awful, acting from everyone is horrible and lame, the music is awful badly horrible. Story lazy and offensive. The movie has no heart no soul in this movie at all. This movie copy's a scene from Bloodfist in which kids throws in Kurt coconuts that scene was stolen from Bloodfist. Van Damme's voice is still dubbed on horrible way. You have slow sex scene in the movie offensive horrible. Some of the fights scenes that was made by Van Damme were used by stunt doubles. Yes stunt doubles did stunts for Van Damme. Some of the training scenes with Kurt also Stunt double for Van Damme is doing. You have sex scene in this movie between Kurt and Liu (Sara Malakul Lane) which it sucks. The ending was lame the only thing I did laugh was the end credits in which Alain Moussi dances like Van Damme did in the original film.
Alain Moussi is a good fighter he is good I don't blame him for me hating this movie it is not his fault the lazy screenwriters are fault for ripping off movies. I would still rather watch Various Van Damme films Bloodsport, Kickboxer, Cyborg, Hard Target, Lionheart, Death Warrant, Double Impact, Universal Soldier etc.. than this movie.
Cheap copy of Apocalypse Now - on an awful bad worst Van Damme movie he ever did
SPOILERS: This movie is terrible what happened to Luc Deveraux that Van Damme played? So now they just cloned Van Damme Luc Deveraux and he acts now like Colonel Walter E. Kurtz (Marlon Brando). Whole movie is a copycat of Apocalypse Now. Van Damme plays now Kurtz and Scott Adkins plays now U.S. Army Captain Willard. Who John's mission is to terminate Luc Deveraux because Luc killed his family on a crappy way. Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning is an awful bad movie it is long almost 2 hrs. It is a mainly disappointment for Jean-Claude Van Damme fans like me because Van Damme is bald he kills children and he is not much in the movie. I hate this movie and Regeneration so much!
In the movie there is a flash light, this film will literally put you in a coma with all the flashing light's. Those flashing lights in the movie are horrible I could got blind. You can become blind with these flashing lights. I know it has an action scenes but that is not the point. Dolph Lundgren is in a cameo scene again as Sgt. Andrew Scott. He is a clone again didn't Sgt. Andrew Scott died twice now? Once in the original Universal Soldier and the second time in Regeneration. But now he is alive again he is a clone again and dies the third time around?
Why Luc Deveraux has to kill children now? I loved him in the first original movie, but in this movie he is bald, ugly, stone cold zombie killing machine and kills people! He is cloned for like 10 times around. Dialogues are horrible and about clone stuff is wicked stuff. Scott Adkins is terrible he is awful. But on the end of the film you found out the family is imaginary not a real family? But Luc Deveraux has to die? Because he killed imaginary family, why? I am a fan of Universal Soldier (1992) I love Luc Deveraux he is my favorite character Jean-Claude Van Damme played and I love Jean-Claude Van Damme to death. In this movie he is top 10 minutes at least in the film, he is not much in it. His character trough whole movie is wasted and he doesn't do anything. He pops like a zombie and he is bald. Van Damme pretty much plays Marlon Brando's role in Apocalypse Now. By the point of the end, he has a make up on it on a top white and at the bottom black. Yeah Universal Soldier: The Return is horrible even to people yea tough Jean-Claude Van Damme has fun, he smiles, a lots of fist to fist fights. Van Damme kicking ass in that movie and this movie he has nothing to do and he dies? Way to go John Hyams destroying Luc Deveraux mythology story arc!
I am just so tired of new Direct-to-videos movies from Jean-Claude Van Damme because they are un watchable. I just can't stand these movies today, he is doing. I missed half of his movies he made and I haven't reviewed them because they are so horrible that they are just un watchable. I wanted to finish Universal Soldier franchise and I did. My honest opinion Regeneration and Day of Reckoning sucks and they are just horrible terrible Universal Soldier movies! They even have nothing to do with the original Universal Soldier movie at all. I have no comments anymore: P
Unwatchable - Universal trash has nothing to compare to the original classic movie not a Van Damme movie
My raging rant on Universal Soldier: Regeneration! I hate this movie, it has nothing to do with the original classic film. I am a fan of the first film I love the original classic movie 1992 Universal Soldier. This is not a real Van Damme or Universal Soldier movie. In time becomes a cheap lame awful bad flick from good to worse. This movie gets worse every Time, I see it. This is not American movie it is European trash movie. This movie pretty much sucks it is not a good action movie.
Universal Soldier: Regeneration is not shot in the US. It is a cheap horrible European trash not American at all. It was shot in a abandoned cold meal steal in Europe Bulgaria and not US. Jean-Claude Van Damme is not in the movie Much, he is missing for 17 mins. He is not the main lead or the main star in the movie. Andrei "The Pit Bull" Arlovski and Dolph Lundgren are the stars of the film and not Jean-Claude Van Damme! What happened to Luc Deveraux in this movie? In the end of the first movie he remain his humanitarne back in this movie he is a killing machine? On the end of the film he escapes? No thank you. How is this movie good? I don't understand.
I see Andrei "The Pit Bull" Arlovski hunting UnIsols 1 by 1 killing them with his martial arts. I only see in the middle of the movie Van Damme attacking innocent people in restaurant. It takes 1 hr in the movie and 10 mins till Van Damme goes in action he runs and shoots soldiers like in video game. Jean-Claude Van Damme looks weird, his eyes look dead and he doesn't exactly exude personality but that is the character, I guess. Luc is now quite difficult to sympathies with as he has practically lost all of his humanity; the scene where he beats a stranger nearly to death is pretty disturbing and really made me think "What the hell happen to you, Luc?"
Universal Soldier: The Return to many people suck but this movie is better? No. I like and I enjoy Universal Soldier: The Return more than Regeneration because in this movie in which Van Damme is a stone cold zombie killing machine I don't like. I don't care seeing Andrei "The Pit Bull" Arlovski and his fights I don't care. This movie is boring, poor executed. Sorry John Hyams son of Peter Hyams this movie sucks I don't like. The franchise should have ben left alone after Universal Soldier: The Return. I want watch this film ever again.
The Shepherd (2008)
Van Damme against ex-Army Special Forces dealing drugs on border town in a bad-ass action direct-to video flick
I like this film a lot, really good action movie from Jean-Claude Van Damme MILES way better than "Until Death". The Shepherd: Border Patrol is a bad-ass action film from Jean-Claude Van Damme. Directed is by Isaac Florentine who did great and competent job directing this movie. I like some of his movies he directed: Bridge of Dragons (1999) with Dolph Lundgren, Undisputed II: Last Man Standing, Undisputed III: Redemption, Ninja (2009) and Ninja II: Shadow of a Tear those are all good movies. The Shepherd: Border Patrol is entertaining fast paced action film goes quickly around and it is a fun action flick.
This movie is about drug cartels running on border town from Mexico into U.S. through Texas. Jean-Claude Van Damme plays Jack Robideaux an ex cop from New Orleans who takes a job as Border Patrol Agent in Columbus, New Mexico. Un aware a group of ex-Army OPS soldiers from Afghanistan are smuggling drugs from Texas border in to New Mexico. Van Damme goes in to personal vendetta out of his jurisdiction on the bad guys lead by Stephen Lord and Scott Adkins ex military Special OPS soldiers. I love Jack Robideaux character that Jean-Claude Van Damme plays, you see him with a white rabbit. Van Damme is an animal lover, he loves animals and he loves dogs so much like me. He has 9 dogs and a kitty, he is a nice guy unlike Steven Seagal and I love Jean-Claude Van Damme to death, he is my second favorite action star of all time. Sylvester Stallone is my favorite number 1 action star.
I like action sequences and fight sequences that was directed by Isaac Florentine. Van Damme does not use stunt doubles in his fights I really enjoy that in the movie. Jack Robideaux fights a guy in a Mexican prison and breaks his arm. Van Damme fights with Scott Adkins and kills the guy excellent fight I enjoy it MILES way better than in Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning I enjoy this movie more. I like in which Drug Smugglers ex soldiers Special OPS are dressed in a priests outfits and are smuggling drugs with a bus and when they are detected they are running away trough Texas border in to New Mexico bad-ass action chase sequence. There is a lot of shootouts. You see a guy electrocuted in an electric pool. Van Damme kicks everyone I love the shootout in a building Jack Robideaux (Jean-Claude Van Damme) uses the Hatsan Escort AimGuard shotgun on the bad guys and his Beretta 92FS that he is using it in his movies so many times.
The movie is rated R and you also see blood. Bianca Van Varenberg daughter of Van Damme plays Jack's daughter Kassie and we found out why Van Damme has personal agenda against Meyers (Stephen Lord) and Karp (Scott Adkins). In my opinion this is one of Jean-Claude Van Damme's best acting performance in action and in fights. He uses no stunt doubles and that's what I like in Jean-Claude Van Damme.
The Shepherd: Border Patrol is a good bad-ass action entertaining fun movie not bad for direct-to-video flick, but not the best I seen from Van Damme. Not his best movie or his greatest one. I still prefer Hard Target (1993) my number 1 favorite action film of all them from Jean-Claude Van Damme over The Shepherd: Border Patrol but I have enjoy this movie. MILES way better than "Until Death".
Until Death (2007)
Decent Van Damme Direct-to-video movie, but the second hour the drama drags and takes me out of the movie
This is another direct-to-video from Van Damme the second collaboration between Van Damme and Simon Fellows. They previously worked on Second in Command and yes I like that film. Many people didn't I did. Until Death is a decent film from Jean-Claude Van Damme on his direct to video movies. The first hour I like a lot the film. I absolutely like the bar scene In the bar in the middle of the film in which Anthony Stowe detective in New Orleans is set up he drinks vodka like he is drunk but a 5 hitman come and Van Damme jumps grabs his Berretta 92FS and takes out 5 killers at once with shoot guns I like that action sequence.
He is a bad ass in the first hour who everyone dislikes and blames him when an undercover police woman was killed. Stephen Rea is Gabriel Callaghan ex partner of Stowe now a mafia boss and Stowe sworn enemy. I like the first hour a lot in the movie. Good action performance by Van Damme.
This is going to be spoilers it is not a rant but I don't like the film either. The second hour when Anthony Stowe (Van Damme) is shoot is drags with the drama. The second hour drags and it has less action in it and I felt bored with it. But it is not bad. I like the first hour more specially the music in the bar scene really good performance by Van Damme.
Van Damme has almost no martial arts in this film. only one scene it has an martial arts sequence in which Van Damme on judo grabs a cop and throws him trough his body almost breaks his arm. I like the martial art sequence better than Seagal's move. After that there are no fights at all which I felt disappointing. He is on drugs again and I really don't like his character that much. I hate the music score it is circus score. The direction is horrible. Van Damme dies on the end. I don't like seeing Van Damme dying. That is why they are spoilers, Van Damme dies on the end of the movie and it sucks. The Shepherd Border Patrol which is a next movie I am going to review is a MILES way better film in my opinion than Until Death.
The finale showdown between Van Damme and Stephen Rea was great in that warehouse shop but in a Hard Boiled are much better showdown better action sequences. This movie was slow paced, boring as hell I hardly make it trough. I also think this movie copied the Mexican Standoff from Face/Off (1997) John Woo movie and I don't like it at all.
I would still rather watch various other Van Damme films than "Until Death": Bloodsport, Kickboxer, Cyborg, Hard Target, Lionheart, Death Warrant, Double Impact, Universal Soldier, Timecop, Sudden Death, Maximum Risk and Universal Soldier: The Return. Or his direct to video flicks: Replicant, The Order, In Hell, 6 Bullets, Enemies Closer, Second in Command, Wake of Death and The Shepherd Border Patrol those movies I like a lot.
Until Death I don't like it. The film come out the same year as Steven Seagal's Urban Justice and yes I like that movie more it is MILES WAY better than Until Death the drama took me out of this movie. I want watch this movie again it is a bad awful flick from Van Damme his over dramatic performance ever. Van Damme dies I dislike this movie I don't want to see Van Damme dying so Van Damme just no.
The Hard Corps (2006)
The Hard Core - What happened to this movie Van Damme?
Horrible Rant on - The Hard Corps direct-to-video flick. I hate this movie so much! I love Jean-Claude Van Damme I love his movies I am hard core number 1 Van Damme fan. I love Hard Target, Bloodsport, Kickboxer, Cyborg, Lionheart, Death Warrant, Double Impact, Universal Soldier and his direct to video movies: Replicant, The Order, In Hell, 6 Bullets, Enemies Closer, Second in Command, Wake of Death this I don't like. It is very boring movie it is 1 hrs and 50 min's long way too long. Almost nothing exciting happens. This is just not a Van Damme movie I except it to be. Van Damme is in 3 fights and he uses stunt doubles again.
Van Damme is a bodyguard in this movie ex special forces who was kicked out of military and becomes a bodyguard. This is one of the worst direct-to-video Van Damme movies ever played. From the lousy action the story Van Damme is not a bodyguard type he just can not act as bodyguard type. Why is Vivica A. Fox doing in this movie and kissing Van Damme? What the hell are you doing Jean-Claude Van Damme? What happened to this movie Van Damme? It lacks on action and fights. Why do you have to be in relationship with your client Van Damme?
You want to watch a good bodyguard action movie watch: Decoy (1995) with Robert Patrick and Peter Weller. Watch jet Li's The Defender those are good movies. I would still rather watch Steven Seagal's Urban Justice than this movie that is a good movie, probably Seagal's only best direct-to-video movie because the rest movies Seagal is doing today are garbage. It takes an 1 hr and 2 mins. till Van Damme fights and it is disappointing. This is one of Van Damme's weakest performances ever. He is a zombie in this movie he has no emotion at all and nothing just happens. This movie was directed by Sheldon Lettich the man who wrote the script with Sylvester Stallone for Rambo III. He directed 3 bad-ass Van Damme movies that I love Lionheart, Double Impact and The Order that I enjoy and I love to death. What happened to this movie? Van Damme act's like he doesn't want to be in this movie.
Exit Wounds with Steven Seagal is MILES way better action movie than The Hard Core. I don't want to watch The Hard Core with Sheldon Lettich anymore and Van Damme looks like bored in this movie. I prefer Jean-Claude Van Damme over Steven Seagal but The Quest Van Damme directed sucked the first movie he directed. Steven Seagal directed On Deadly Ground and it was MILES way better action movie than The Quest. Seagal did not bad a job directing that movie While Van Damme failed in his first direction debut in my opinion.
I could wrote more long RANT about this movie, but who is going to read such a long review? no one. This movie sucks and it is one of Van Damme's worst movies he ever did a true disappointment coming from his fan. I don't have this movie in my collection.
Second in Command (2006)
Another best direct-to-video Jean-Claude Van Damme political action war flick
Yes another best direct-to-video Jean-Claude Van Damme political action war flick. Another solid decent excellent performance from Jean-Claude Van Damme I really, really love the film a lot. I know a lot of people don't like this film, they more prefer "Wake of Death" I understand them I like Wake of Death but Second in Command is in my top 5 favorites direct to video movies from Van Damme he dis. Replicant, The Order, Enemies Closer, In Hell and this one I love, they are in my top 5 movies from direct-to-video Van Damme he has done.
I am a huge number 1 Jean-Claude Van Damme fan to death I love the guy I grew up with his movies. He is an animal lover like me and I also love dogs to death. Van Damme has 9 dogs and a kitty he is really a nice guy. I like these kind of characters Van Damme plays. Cmdr. Samuel Keenan I like his character a lot Van Damme also uses spin kicks. He plays a Navy Seal just like Seagal did he played Navy Seal in Under Siege but Van Damme played this role more convincing than Seagal. This movie to me is MILES way better than Legionnaire and Street Fighter those movies were also war films in which Van Damme did. Second in Command was more convincing too me more action packed. I like Julie Cox in this movie she is more convincing and I love that she is Van Damme's love interest and the movie has a happy ending.
The movie is about a group of U.S. Marines in U.S. embassy Eastern European nation of Moldova. U.S. Marines has to protect Moldova's President Yuri Amirev (Serban Celea) from Militia under lead by Anton Tavarov (Velibor Topic) who want's to kill Amirev at any cost and takes the power over his country. Only Commander Samuel Keenan a decorated U.S. Navy SEAL who becomes deputy ambassador "Second in Command" stands on his way. The movie is a politic action war in which the U.S. Embassy is under fire and under siege. Militia want's at any cost torn American Marines apart. Civilian people try to escape with the bus with the evacuation but the bomb explodes.
Jean-Claude Van Damme show's one of his martial arts. I love the finale fight between Van Damme and Tavarov. They are in the tunnels under ground of Embassy people trying to escape and the Militia is hunting them. Van Damme uses Beretta 92FS I really like that in the film. There is a lot of fire power in here from the Militia and American Marines. Van Damme did a convincing job playing his character than Steven Seagal did. Simon Fellows did a competent job directing the film and I really thought he did a great job directing the film.
Steven Seagal's Mercenary for Justice come out the same year on direct-to-video as this movie come out and Second in Command was miles way better movie too me than Mercenary for Justice. Jean-Claude Van Damme is a better action star than Steven Seagal ever will be.
Second in Command is a solid action packed political direct-to-video flick mixed with war from Jean-Claude Van Damme. I always loved the film, it think it is Van Damme's best direct-to-video film.
The Expendables 2 (2012)
Heroes never die - the gang is all here Stallone, Van Damme, Schwarzenegger, Norris, Willis, Yu and Lundgren in a solid action sequel
This is a solid action packed sequel not my favorite I am fan of the first movie The Expendables (2010) but I like The Expendables 2 a lot. This and the first movie are good damn action movies, the third one sucks. It is a good sequel to the first movie. I like the film a lot manly for Sylvester Stallone, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Nan Yu and Dolph Lundgren. This is my favorite Chuck Norris film, but still the film in my opinion does have some problems and some issues in the film that I don't like.
Heroes never die -the gang is all here Sylvester Stallone, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Jason Statham, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Dolph Lundgren, Nan Yu, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis in a solid sequel.
I like some of the action sequences in this movie in the opening scene you have a lot of action in which The Expendables are on a rescue mission. I like the battle gun sequence with Lee Christmas (Jason Statham) and Yin Yang (Jet Li) firing Browning M2 machine guns mounted on Land Rovers during the opening gun battle. I like the action sequence in which you see a lot of fire power - automatic weapons. There is a lot of explosions battles good action sequences. You see Yin Yang battles with two cooking pans in a hands on soldiers kicking their buts, I like that. The shootout in the airport the finale battle sequences was great. Stallone, Schwarzenegger and Willis together shooting in the airport at Jean Vilain's army the Sangs is great. I like the finale fight between Stallone and Van Damme it was an epic battle.
I like the music score by Brian Tyler and I like the music song played in this film Beautiful Morning by Felix Cavaliere. I like Nan Yu as Maggie Chan I enjoy her acting performance she was the heart of the team. I like Bruce Willis as Church this is the last time we will ever see him in an Expendables movie again. It is Rated R for strong bloody violence throughout it is a bloody solid action flick in my opinion. Jean-Claude Van Damme was excellent as the bad guy Jean Vilain that's how you do it Van Damme. I love him in this movie and in Enemy Closer as the bad guy I love Van Damme's performance he is a bad-ass bad guy, he knows how to act. Sylvester Stallone is bad-ass, kick-ass hero as Barney Ross I love him in this movie. Chuck Norris was a bad-ass Booker "Lone Wolf" I love him in this movie. This is Chuck Norris favorite film of mine. Dolph Lundgren as Gunner Jensen is a bad-ass in this movie my father is a big fan of Lundgren, he loves the guy and so do I.
The problems and issues with the film I have: this film stole a lot of dialogues from different movies I did not like that. In the opening scene in which Expendables are driving with a vehicles you see written a line: "knock knock" that line was stolen from Predator. Stallone's line "That thing belongs in a museum." that was line from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. I did not like Schwarzenegger in the finale with a machine gun looking like a Terminator in Terminator 2: Judgment Day. I did not like Schwarzenegger, Willis and Crews making fool out of them self. Crews mention he is going to terminate Schwarzenegger I did not like that. Schwarzenegger mentions Rambo and he keeps repeating his line from The Terminator famous catchphrase "I'll be back" and Wills says you were back enough and Schwarzenegger mention the famous catchphrase from Willis character John McClane - Die Hard "Yippee-ki-yay I don't like that.
I swear Van Damme's part of his voice is dubbed, because I know his voice and that is not how Van Damme talks. He appears 34 mins after the film started and when he talks and camera turns away that is not his voice, it is someone else. Chuck Norris voice is also dubbed for the most of the part that is not how those two guys talks. The fight scene between Scott Adkins and Jason Statham is disappointing because I see stunt doubles. Stallone with that hat looks like John Spartan with two guns from Demolition Man. he copy's his famous character. The final shootout between Van Damme and Stallone is copied from Seagal's Out For Justice in which Van Damme says I am out of bullets those are really issues with the film I have. Not enough Jet Li in the movie, he does not much in the film he is only in the first 10 minutes than he disappears for the rest of the movie that is disappointing and lacks in the movie.
I like more 80's and 90's action films that are better paced, better filmed without CGI effects this movie is an okay but The Expendables (2010) is my favorite action film of the three. The Expendables 2 is a fun action movie I like Sylvester Stallone, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Nan Yu and Dolph Lundgren in this movie. My favorite action stars are Sylvester Stallone and Jean Claude-Van Damme. My favorite actions films of all time are: First Blood, Rambo: First Blood Part II, Rambo, Hard Target, Cobra, The Terminator, Demolition Man, Predator, Aliens, Hard Boiled, RoboCop, Broken Arrow, John Wick 1, 2 and many more movies.
Wake of Death (2004)
Van Damme against Chinese triads his solid action thriller direct-to-video film
Wake of Death is a solid action thriller one of Jean-Claude Van Damme's solid performances. We see the last time Van Damme with 2 guns Browning Hi-Power in his hands. It is a solid action movie not bad for a direct-to-video flick, just not my favorite Van Damme film. I know this movie is prounced one of Van Damme's best direct-to-video films, I disagree I have seen better of his direct-to-video films: Replicant, The Order, In Hell, Enemies Closer those movies I love a lot. I like Wake of Death it is just not my favorite action film. Van Damme against Chinese triads wages war and bloody revenge at them.
Jean-Claude Van Damme is a former gangster who finds himself being pulled back into that world when his wife brings home a young Chinese immigrant that turns out to be the daughter of a Triad boss, Ben Archer (Van Damme) wife is brutally murdered by Triad boss (Simon Yam) now Ben wages war against the Chinese triads.
I like the car chases in this movie, I like Ben protecting that young girl and I also I like a lot of shootouts in this action packed flick. It is a brutal film, you see the torture. Triad boss Sun Quan kills a young girl because she wanted to leave him, he slits her throat you see a lot of blood. This is a rated-R film it is all bloody disgusting. You have a knife fight in which Tony (Tony Schiena) fights with knife on a boat with Han (Philip Tan). Good action sequences with explosions. It has a drama and little dramatic roles for Van Damme in it. We see after Kickboxer Van Damme crying his soft spot more and he is more a human been in this movie than any other characters he played.
Good direction and good writing from Philippe Martinez he did a good job directing this action flick, he did a competent job. Wake of Death is a solid action thriller solid direct-to-video film I like a lot. Not my favorite, but still not bad a good movie from Van Damme.
Van Damme in a cheap awful "Die Hard" direct-to-video flick on a train Under Siege 2: Dark Territory is MILES way better
This movie sucks, awful horrible this movie completely rips off: Under Siege 2: Dark Territory, James Bond 007 - The Living Daylights, The Peacemaker and Die Hard in a cheap awful film called Derailed. I hate this movie so much, I hate it. The story is horrible, the acting is dreadful, the pacing is awful it is slow, the movie becomes boring. I love Jean-Claude Van Damme I am his number 1 fan and I love Bloodsport, Kickboxer, Cyborg, Hard Target, Lionheart, Death Warrant, Double Impact, Universal Soldier and many more.
Derailed is without doubt one of Jean-Claude Van Damme's one of his worst films. Maybe his worst film yet. This, Street Fighter, The Quest, Assassination Games, Dragon Eyes, Black Eagle, Inferno aka Desert Heat and Kickboxer: Retaliation are one of his worst films.
After this film I don't know if I am going to watch any Van Damme films anymore I am tired watching such a cheap plastic movie about deadly virus that I saw in The Peacemaker, train taken hostage I saw in Under Siege 2: Dark Territory which was miles way better movie than this. Van Damme on a motor cycle using a stunt double to get on a train make me so angry in this movie. Like Van Damme doesn't know how to ride a motor cycle bike and make his own stunt? The terrorists are awful in this movie, the action is horrible. I hate Van Damme's son in this movie Kristopher Van Varenberg I liked him more in 6 Bullets he was better in that movie in here he was annoying.
The reason I mentioned James Bond 007 - The Living Daylights is because in that movie Bond was assigned to aid the defection of a KGB officer, covering his escape across the border. Derailed movie did the same thing in which Van Damme was assigned to aid the defection of a professional thief Galina Konstantin covering her escape and smuggle her across the border with biochemical weapon. This movie rips off those 4 films I mentioned on a crappy way. Laura Harring as Galina Konstantin is useless her character doesn't do anything for me. Van Damme is kidnaped in a train by terrorists just like in Die Hard. Seriously this film is forgotten I hate this film it doesn't even exist. No it is not a good move it a boring laughable cheap flick. Yes I lough my ass at Van Damme's fights because he looked like a clown in this movie. He make fool out of his self.
Yes I like good train movies: Under Siege 2: Dark Territory, Narrow Margin, Last Passenger, Detonator aka. Death Train with Perce Brosnan, Broken Arrow (1996) John Woo flick, Terror Train they are just so many better films than Derailed. I don't have this movie not even on DVD it is a forgotten peace a junk that belongs in the trash. I want ever watch this movie again.
