Product Description

Brazil (Jean-Claude Van Damme) is a contract killer, willing to take any job if the price is right. Flint (Scott Adkins) left the assassin game when a ruthless drug dealer’s brutal attack left his wife in a coma. When a contract is put out on the cold-blooded drug dealer, both Brazil and Flint want him dead – one for the money, the other for revenge. With crooked Interpol agents and vicious members of the criminal underworld hot on their trail, these two assassins reluctantly join forces to quickly take out their target before they themselves are terminated.

3.0 out of 5 stars An assassin double-act 14 Nov 2011
By J. Morris TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Brazil (Jean Claude van Damme - JCVD) is a veteran hitman who will take any contract for the right price. He is tasked with killing Polo - a well connected drug dealer on Interpol's watch-list. When Roland Flint (Scott Adkins - The Bourne Ultimatum) another highly-successful hitman who is retired learns of the contract on Polo, he decides he wants vengeance for what Polo did to his wife. Two killers - one contract, one in it for the money the other for revenge, who will get to Polo first?

Assassination Games is a well-filmed, high-tension affair. There are some serious shoot-outs and cool hand-to-hand action sequences set in Budapest, Romania. The Eastern-Bloc milieu suits the film well, with Brazil's run-down cover flat being quite the secret-lair. The involvement of corrupt Interpol agents trying to clean house was a noble attempt at adding an extra layer of story but is just so two-dimensional it falls pretty flat and is damn-near a straight rip-off of The Bourne Trilogy.

Neither Adkins or Van Damme get to show off their martial arts and it seems the main problem of this film is just how much potential it has doesn't marry up with what's delivered. It's not a bad film per se, it just seems that the script was written by after a booze-fuelled night in the pub; there just seems to be no main bad-guy, the Interpol agents are completely inept whilst Polo is just a womanising thug - hardly a worthy adversary for two high-end assassins.

4.0 out of 5 stars Weapon 11 Oct 2011
By Matt
Format:DVD
Looked forward to this as a long term Van Damme fan and have been VERY impressed by Scott Adkins in the few films he has done. Assasination Games - Well theres not that much action - a few brief fights, some gunfights and a pretty good torture scene nthrown in. Nothing on the scale of Undisputed 2/3 or Universal Soldier Regeneration. However the story and characters are well rounded and the film has a dark atmosphere that makes this moody and dark. The days of cheesy Van Damme are over, the darker, deeper Van Damme is here and works well, especially now he is older and has more lines on his face. Adkins is also currently overlooked in the action hero stakes at the moment although his role is less martial arts based than he usually does (see Undisputed 2 & 3 and Ninja), he still plays it well. Production values are also better than most straight to DVD releases. Overall I enjoyed it and cannot wait to see both in Universal Soldier A New Dimension and Expendables 2 next year. 7/10

By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The movie comes at you fast with a lot of major plot points in the beginning.

The film opens with a Ukrainian wedding scene. Waiters are getting patted down. One waiter (Jean-Claude Van Damme), skilled in knives, cuts the throat of the big boss and escapes to his secret apartment...meanwhile another assassin, Flint lives in seclusion caring for his comatose wife (Bianca Van Varenberg).

Also going on is a quick scene involving an Interpol corruption scandal and an investigation. Seems Interpol is selling guns that they seize back to the criminals. They are afraid that Flint(Scott Adkins) can take them down, so they order his assassination. In order to flush him out they release a crime boss named Polo (Ivan Kaye) from prison, who had gang raped and beat Flint's wife comatose. In addition to Flint, Jean-Claude Van Damme is also summoned to do the Polo assassination. Polo is hunting the man who killed his brother in the first scene.

Now if this wasn't enough, Van Damme is distracted by his new neighbors, a prostitute (Marija Karan) and a pimp who beats her. Van Damme doesn't want Flint to kill Polo or else he loses his fee. Flint realizes Interpol set him up by freeing Polo, so he wants to kill them too. Everybody in the film is out to kill everybody else. Got all that?

Unlikely alliances form to narrow down the factions. Outside of Van Damme, the acting was acceptable. While the plot sounds complex, it really isn't that hard to follow, unless you have problems following Steven Seagal movies. It takes a while to build up all the factions and reasons for wanting to kill each other, but once it does things move rather quickly.

F-bomb (with Ukrainian accent), violence against women (its a Van Damme film), brief nudity, torture.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is Van Damme back to his best and thinking about his films and what his loyal supporters want to watch.
Scott Adkins is a fantastic actor and a great martial artist who is very underrated.
A Great Film and a great bargain from Amazon.
