Product Description

Product Description

Top counter-terrorist agent Jack Quinn (Jean-Claude Van Damme) is brought out of retirement to tackle the enigmatic Stavros (Mickey Rourke). However, Quinn's hesitation to shoot Stavros in front of his family results in Stavros' escape and Quinn's imprisonment on a remote island as a punishment for his failure. When Stavros takes Quinn's pregnant wife hostage, he breaks out of his prison and enlists the help of arms dealer Yaz (Dennis Rodman) in rescuing his spouse.

From Amazon.co.uk

Look ma, no script! As expected from a movie by Hong Kong action director Hark Tsui, there are many explosive, fast-paced sequences in this Jean-Claude Van Damme vehicle. Some are thrilling, others inconsequential. There is also another mumbling, overdone performance by Mickey Rourke, who looks as if he performed his own plastic surgery. Except for an unintentionally humorous ending, the only surprise is Dennis Rodman as Van Damme's partner in exploitation. Rodman has plenty of charisma, but needs someone to weed out those inferior scripts. He plays an eccentric arms dealer coerced by an avenging Van Damme into tracking down the evil and sadistically weird character played by a well-muscled Rourke. It says little for the production that the best sequence of the movie occurs a quarter of the way into the action. It concerns an escape by Van Damme from an island think tank for forcibly retired covert agents. After that, everyone should have gone home. --Rochelle O'Gorman, Amazon.com

To be honest I wasn't expecting much with Double Team but I enjoyed the movie. It has action, comedy and something different to other Van Damme movies made at the time. Dennis Rodman makes the movie interesting and funny at times. Not a bad team at all. I was sceptic at first thinking what now, is this a terrible version of Double Impact? Fortunately its a fun movie. Different to Double Impact and does a good job not to bore you to death. Some people give this movie bad reviews which I dont get it why but Its down to preference and I can respect anyones views and opinions. For the price is great. Get it as you may enjoy it. Great seller. Fast delivery. Thank You.

I can't see how people can hate this film so much, OK it's not a big budget actioner with storming special and visual effects like T2, but it manages to keep an exciting and interesting pace throughout. Van Damme doesn't do anything different in this movie, he just does what he does best, beating up bad guys.
Jack Quinn (Van Damme) is a top counter terrorist who is assigned to the colony after he freezes on shooting ruthless and savage terrorist Stavros (played to perfection by Mickey Rourke). On his way to taking down Stavros, Quinn meets up with flamboyant but deadly gun dealer Yaz ( Basketball Star Dennis Rodman). Quinn was just looking for a second chance at getting his target, but when his pregnant wife is kidnapped by Stavros, it becomes personal.

This is a good film if you like martial arts films of the old school. it's true that Rodman's character and hair colour are over the top but Van Damme does what is expected of him and Mickey Rourke is an interesting bad guy.

I don't know what the deal is with the other user reviews of this Tsui Hark/Van Damme masterpiece - Double Team is perhaps one of the best films to have been released during the whole of the 90s and should be considered a classic movie, definitely not as the 'worst film of 1997' as one ill-informed critic stated.

The strengths and innovations of Double Team are nearly too many to list but amongst the most significant achievements that seem to have been overlooked by the other reviewers are -
* Acting - We all know Van Damme is an unimpeachable actor but who would have known Dennis Rodman could have made the transition from athlete to film star? I'm surprised he wasn't nominated for an Oscar for his excellent, moving performance
* Script - The writing in Double Team finally surpassed that of Casablanca as the benchmark against which all future films are judged
* Direction - Hark knows how to make the most of his actors and locations. The film is beautifully shot and I for one am looking forward to the Blu Ray edition of this film as whilst DVD is ok, I can't help but feel we're loosing something of the original by viewing it in any less resolution than this classic merits.

So, there we have it - Double Team is an awesome, important film and deserves every one of the five stars I've awarded it. Buy it now! With money!

Jack Quinn is top counter-terrorist, and before his final mission he misses terrorist Stavros.

During this epic battle, Quinn is wounded and sent to the Colony, where everyone else presumes he is dead.

He is reassured by Belloq from Raiders, and gets fit by smoking cigarettes, and lifting a bath.

Stavros had his son killed in the earlier fight and as revenge he is hunting Quinn's pregnant wife. Quinn joins forces with vivid arms dealer Yaz to fight Stavros, and a tiger.....

This film, and Knock Off are easily Van Dammes most bizarre movie, but they are nothing short of entertaining.

The editing is all over the shop, and the script is undoubtedly awful, but I had so much fun watching this, and still do every time I put it in my machine.

Van Damme is as good as always, and Rourke as you would expect. Rodman, well he's in it, and that's all I can say.

The fight scenes are awesome, some of the camera-work inspired, and the fact that it's on less than 90 minutes, only adds to the charm.

Yes it may have lots and lots of flaws, but it's entertaining, and any film that involves a man kick shoes at Van Damme or the man kick a tiger, has to be seen.

this is not a five star movie, except that it IS five star entertainment - mad as a box of frogs, so I'm reviewing to counter some of the low star gripes here.
Rodman is surprisingly capable, Rourke convincingly musclebound, and there's enough inventive action set-pieces and super-spy chicanery to keep you going
"What The...?" all the way through. Even the product placement (yes, Coca Cola) is so guiltily OTT that you have to laugh at the audacity. Now You See Me? Now see this! The film is just nuts, which must be down to Tsui Hark as much as the playful anything-goes scenario. What Van Damme does with a door jamb, a packet of cigarettes, and his thumb is worth watching out for...plus endless baby peril, innocent bystanders dropping like flies, poorly disguised secret agents a-go-go, the cavalry charge of the Carabiniero, the finger puppetry, graffiti, lilo massacre, switchblade toes and whoops there's a tiger too. What's more, it doesn't look cheap...every cent is up there on the screen and everything keeps blowing up. If you're bored and want something different, give yourself a treat - Gratuitous never wore better disco slut outfits than this, nor came with more dayglo hair...
