Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"At its best in its first half, when Dubois has to find his way to the competition in the Lost City of Tibet."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"The endeavor looks less like a movie than some ESPN programmer's worst brainstorm."
‑ Mike Clark, USA Today
"Van Damme calls his film 'the Ben-Hur of martial arts'; boy, is he deluded."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"In his first outing, it is unclear whether VanDamme can't manage the scope of this tale, or if he's just a bad director."
‑ Madeleine Williams, Cinematter
"With the same grace and discipline that he displays in front of the camera, Jean-Claude Van Damme makes a socko directorial debut."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"Interesting only for being so totally familiar, even if you've never seen another film about a Ghan-Gheng martial-arts match in an ancient Lost City in Tibet."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"More a study in worldwide combat than a tribute to Van Damme's ascension as a director."
‑ Pat Kramer, Boxoffice Magazine
"A speedy and rousing adventure, chock-full of exciting -- if unlikely -- events and swarming with colorful characters in colorful locations."
‑ Liz Braun, Jam! Movies
"The level of high-tension violence expected from a Van Damme film is blunted by poor direction, uninspired camera work, and a bland villain."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"I rushed to finish this movie so I didn't get a late fee."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Unless bone-crunching violence is your bag, you can bag this one."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
