Maximum Risk Reviews:

As a Van Damme fanatic when i saw this movie i was immediately blown away.The only thing i didn't like was the brother story again.How many brothers has this guy got.But seriously this is an action film from begin to finish.There is vehicle chases, fights, and of course a pretty woman.What more should you ask for?.Well nothing really,this film has it all and to think it was from the begin of Van Damme's drug taking days.He gotta have been on drugs to create Double Squad which is'nt terrible movie ,just terrible actors (Dennis Rodman).Any method Max Risk is a film that will have you on the edge of your seat from begin to finish.The war scenes are nice and well directed.And it has Natasha Henstridge who acts well and puts on a decent performance.She is also simple on the eye in more methods than one.


French Cop,Alain(Jean Claude Van-Damme)one day finds out he had a twin Brother,travels to America to search answers about who he was,and who murdered him.Running afoul of the Russian Mob,a Brian Bosworth Looking Hit-man,and crooked FBI agents along the method in Fresh York.He also finds himself Protecting/falling in love with the dead bro's squeeze played by Natasha Henstridge.All leading up to a large shoot out in an abandoned Wherehouse...Sorta.This is not your usual Van Damme movie.Matured Van Damme?Yep.For starters Max risk is helmed by Asian-action-man,Ringo Lam.He gives the film a lot of atmosphere and style.The war scenes are realistic,gritty,and for the most part brutal.Notice Van Damme goes for the Jugular here.Breaking bones as well as high flying kicks. The gunfights are staged well.Some nice chases.And a great stage involving a chainsaw.The scenery is worth it too.We begin out in warm,beautiful,summertime France to Dead of winter, smelly, Fresh York city.I think its a great contrast arc on the story.Lam gets one of the very greatest acting gigs outta Van Damme Yet.He is at his darkest and most volatile here.Natasha Henstridge is kinda wasted to anything but eye candy.Zach Grenier and Paul Ben Victor are just okay as the terrible guys calling the shots.Trouble is they are not really a physical threat for Van Damme.Stefanos Miltsakais as Redface fits this bill very well.His 3 confrontations with Alain are worthwhile.although its receive to be a tiny tedious bordering on parody.This would probably be the greatest Van Damme film if it were not for the slow pace and excessive dialog,which does serve a purpose.Its just we receive some flashy action.Then 15 mins go by leaving us wanting more.Then it begins up again.Brake.Gas.Brake.Gas.The gunfights are good,but It seems Ringo was holding back a tiny from his usual trademark items to pacify the suits behind the scenes.If your looking for the usual from JC,then go watch the Quest.This is a much more complex,adult-themed movie.


If you see only one Van Damme film...see Max Risk. It is a decent thriller, not just a martial arts flick. Unfortunately, after seeing how nice Van Damme can be (yes, he can act - something we've yet to see from Stephen Seagal who he's usually compared to) it makes you sad to see how many terrible movies he's really made.
