Did they re-shoot after Van Damme’s success?
Strange movie this is. It’s a typical 80’s action movie trying to be a James Bond film (with Van Damme in the Jaws role) with two non-English leads (the heavy accents are all over the place) and it works on no level at all.
The story is plain stupid and could probably be resolved in real life through simple diplomacy or a quick Navy Seals operation. But of course this is one-man operation and boring it is…
Set against the background off Malta only one men can take on a ship full of evil Russians while entertaining his kids on vacation (and I’m not making that up). What surprises me about the man that goes by the codename of Black Eagle is how 1-dimensional his character is considering he has the most screen time and they tried to flesh him out by having his kids around. he stays bland, but then again he has no charisma at all…
Then Van Damme, here having about half the amount of lines Ah-nold had in Terminator he comes off as a baddie we all like. He gets more physics to display, he gets the cool moves, he even is more fleshed out (physical and character-wise) then the good guy. At the end I was just hoping Van Damme would knock his lights out.
Unless you’re watching a horror film (allthough this movie is a horror to watch) you’re not supposed to root for the bad guy. But I was. I’m thinking they re-shot scenes making van Damme’s character more likable after the success of Bloodsport, but it messes the movie up even more….
100 minutes can save you thousand dollars on a trip to Malta.
That’s the only thing that I found worthy of my time in this spy drama that stars Shô Kosugi and his kids, as well as a rather boring Jean Claude Van Damme who couldn’t act his way out of a glass of vodka. The location footage, particularly the hilly streets and the views of the sea, are gorgeous distractions from the plot about a crashed jetliner with a newfangled contraption that the Russians want to get their hands on.
This is your standard 1980’s action flick with lots of kickboxing, chases and explosions. I didn’t mind the family story here involving Kosugi and his kid’s nanny and fellow agent, Doran Clark whom he become involved with, because the interracial romance gives it a different angle.
I just didn’t care so much for the plot and easily found myself looking at the various shots of local architecture. Kosugi is very likeable so his lack of acting skills isn’t as distracting as Van Damm’s. William H. Bassett is the only other actor worth mentioning, a memorable character actor I’ve seen in quite a few things. Unfortunately, this is a good 20 minutes too long, so the boredom does creep in here and there.
