Jake Riley is working on the "Torch" case, a psycho serial killer, who kills women with kids and sets them on fire after they are dead.
The killer calls Riley sometimes and now that Riley is retiring, the killer has no person to play against anymore.
The NSA comes into play here and offers a job to Riley. A replicant, or better a clone of the killer should help him find the real one, as kind of test if it works out.
Now Riley is back on track, with a clone of the killer at his hand on the way to discover that nobody is born as murderer....
It's easily Van Dammes best direct to DVD release I've seen, because at least the plot is original, and it gives Van Dammes a little bit of range playing the bad guy for once.
Supported well by Rooker, the main problem of the film is the flimsy script, which sometimes is more clunkier than The Torches hair.
It's an easy film to dismiss, but compared to the slew of dodgy action movies we get, this has a little bit of everything in it for people.
Van Dammes fights himself again, and the effects are very good, seamlessly putting two Van Dammes on screen, using very good camera tricks.
Well worth watching, and it will make you realise that Van Dammes is the king of direct to DVD action movies
