4.0 out of 5 stars A solid film 30 Dec 2000
By A Customer
At a glance at this film, you may be led to believe it is going to be a martial arts film, but you couldn't be any more wrong, there is only one kick Van Damme does in the film and it is to the shin, while Van Damme is lying down, but this is a very different, yet good Van Damme movie. With a good story and plot, and strong acting, yes acting, Van Damme proves what people have been saying all along, he can actually act! and the supporting cast do a great job as well.
The scenario backgrounds are pleasing to the eye, and good directing on the battle scene's. It's just a shame it didn't get released into the theaters.
The only reason this DVD doesn't get 5 stars, is because of the extra's, because there are no extra's, which is something you would expect in most DVD's now. But as for the film it's top notch!

4.0 out of 5 stars Possibly Jean-Claude's best film 6 May 2003
This period action/adventure piece is, for me, the pinacle of Jean-Claudes career. Although it steers clear of his usual high kicking festival-of-violence slapdowns, Legionnaire supplies some big action set-pieces and has it's sights set on something a bit grander and more dramatic than the usual van Damme fayre. It's a story of betrayal, love, honour and comradeship in an unforgiving Morrocan desert between the two World Wars. When he double crosses a gangster, van Damme's left no option but to do a runner and join the Foreign Legion. It's here he meets up with a host of outcasts from society and once their initial training's out the way it's action ahoy as they have scrap after scrap with the local Morrocans that aren't exactly thrilled to have their country invaded by Westerners. Of course, no self respecting gangster's going to let anyone get away with ripping them off, so the goons aren't too far behind our hero as he ships out to Africa.
The big plusses here are that Jean-Claude gets to stretch himself with a bit of acting (for a change), granted it's fairly basic stuff, but he's better than Stallone, Seagal or Arnie have been when the same's been asked of them. He's got able support from the likes of Steven Berkoff and Colin Farrell who both do what's expected of them in their roles of the tough Legionnaire sergeant and the disgraced Brit officer respectively. Aswell as that, director Peter MacDonald (Rambo 3) deserves some credit for putting something together that looks as good as this does. He proved with Rambo 3 that he can make a desert look good, and Legionnaire is equally blessed with some stunning cinematography.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beau Geste with Muscles 30 July 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This picture is not the high kicking Van Damme of Bloodsport, instead i is e really good adventure story that rely's more on the characters than the special effects.

This picture would appeal to anyone who likes their action with a historical twist.

A really great film.

I found this just average. This is no Beau Geste. However, I feel Jean-Claude Van Damme, plays his role well.

Really enjoyed it, apart from a few cheesy scenes and historical errors, it was a genuinely good film. It had some very good action scenes, acting and some amusing scenes.
