Action hero Jean-Claude Van Damme stars in this globe-trotting adventure set in the 1920s. Van Damme plays Alain, a carefree French playboy who makes the mistake of getting involved with the girlfriend of a notorious Mob kingpin. Running for his life, Alain decides to hide out in a time-tested manner -- he joins the French Foreign Legion. Stationed in North Africa, he must deal with a violently psychotic senior officer and troops of bloodthirsty guerillas. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"In its look and feel, the film resembles action adventures of the 40's and 50's, starring perhaps Gary Cooper."
‑ Peter M. Nichols, New York Times
"Could have been a great film, [but] suffers the fate of its protagonists -- honourable failure."
‑ Dragan Antulov, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"A fun, great-looking, old-fashoned adventure film in the tradition of Beau Geste. One of Van Damme's best."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"Van Damme delivers a monotonic performance that is sufficient to cure the worst cases of insomnia imaginable -- and that, mes amis, is the good news."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"So-so, granulated Foreign Legion adventure."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
