release year:1990 genre:martial arts viewing setting:home DVD, 1/23/99 what I expected:Van Damme kicking ass what I got:pretty much that
synopsis:A young man goes AWOL from the French army to come to America to avenge his murdered brother - and ends up fighting for money.
impressions:This was a bunch of good fights strung together by a good plot. It had some humor, too. Overall, it was watchable and action-packed.
acting:Decent. Van Damme didn't try to go out of his depth here.
final word:It's no Bloodsport, but it's still one of Van Damme's better movies.
