Mr. Van Damme's Gibson is so opaque that he makes Mel Gibson's Mad Max seem weepy by comparison.

Martial arts fans will find plenty of action to hold their interest here, but those in search of plot and character are advised to look elsewhere.

Largely plotless and cheaply made.

In the end it's a little unfair to assess Van Damme in this picture, since Robert De Niro would have trouble seeming credible in these surroundings.
