“This is truly one of the most insane and poorly directed action movies Iu0026#39;ve ever seen. The sheer incompetence on display from the director and editor is enough to make this possibly the worst movie of JCVDu0026#39;s career in terms of quality. Yet despite all that it is quite entertaining and it could easily have been a 6 from me as its hilariously bad for most of it. However, the problem is with the constant quick cuts which are a big part of the movie. It feels as if there are about 200 cuts per minute in this movie and I am not exaggerating. This brings the movie down a little as it gets very tedious to watch and itu0026#39;s incredibly hard to follow whatu0026#39;s going on in certain scenes. The director in general had a clear affinity for trying all the possible camera tricks he could think of; this movie has everything including slow-motion shots, stills, rapid zoom-ins etc. Iu0026#39;m actually planning on seeing more Bob Misiorowski movies to see if theyu0026#39;re all as enjoyably terrible. As for Van Damme, this seems to be one of his coke-binge movies and it shows as he just seems very disinterested for most of the movie. He canu0026#39;t be blamed though as he probably knew what this movie was, as did the rest of the cast. Everyone just doesnu0026#39;t care or wonderfully overacts to glorious results. The bad guys are especially hilarious in this as they seemed to have been told to act as if they were in a state of perpetual anger that shows in their facial expressions which just cannot be taken seriously at all. Overall, I recommend any Van Damme fan watches this as itu0026#39;s worth seeing it just to see how insane and incompetent it is.”
