one of van damme's best films in years.
on 31 August 2012
I had the luck of seeing this flm early. I was hoping this film was going to be better than Van damme's last film 'dragon eyes' which was quite bad.
Boy was i in for a shock, this film was EXCELLENT, Firstly the bad side about this film if there was any, was the film had a close story to Taken, which was a great film. Then again if Hollywood pay big bucks to companies to do remakes why can't the not so rich companies copy some type of story.
Right then onto the film, a former mma fighter's daughter gets kidnapped and they get told to go and see Van Damme as he is the best in the business to get their daughter back, but unbeknown to them his last mission went wrong and he keeps on seeing these 2 dead girls every now and then.
Okay i suppose that every time a Van Damme film comes out everyone wants to hear about the fights in the film, well Van Damme uses a knife early on in the film to good effect, there is also a good fight in a night club that does not involve Van Damme until the fight is almost over, then the rest of the film centres around gun play and the occasional fisty cuffs.
Altogether the film goes at a good pace and it's put together very well, Van Damme's pained character is nicely played and the scenes with his real life son, who plays his son onscreen, there is great chemistry there.
See this film and you won't be dissapointed, there are a lot worse films out there. I will be buying this film when it comes out.
