First American film by John Woo with a tough and athletic Van Damme

He spontaneously aiding a beautiful woman(Yancy Butler) when is attacked and taking on megalomaniac villains,(Lance Henriksen and Arnold Vosloo) who hunt human beings.He’s only helped by a Bayou old man,(Wilford Brimley). This is a ¨Sui generis¨ version from ¨The most dangerous game¨,it’s a vivid recounting of Richard Connell’s famed novel ,adapted previously in the 1932 classic(Joel McCrea,Fay Wray) by Ernest B Schoedsack and by Robert Wise titled¨Game of death¨ and by Boulting titled ¨Run for the sun¨with Richard Widmark and Jane Greer.This theme has been filmed many times since and utilized as a plot for countless television and cinema argument.
The picture displays suspense,tension,thriller and non-stop action for 94 minutes .Breathtaking set pieces action well staged by John Woo with bound and leaps while are shooting.The film is set in New Orleans streets,marsh,bogs of Louisian and into abandoned factory, where is developed an overlong and incredible final duel.Special mention to pair sadist baddies,Henriksen and Vosloo,they’re an excessive maniacal, exaggerated villains,they’re the best of the film.John Woo direction is good ,he moves well the camera with spectacular scenes ,but doesn’t match with his Hong Kong vehicles(Bullet in the head,The Killer,A better tomorrow I and II),John Woo followed with a successful American career(Broken arrow,Face off,Mission impossible II,Windtalkers).The motion picture will like to Jean Claude Van Damme fans and cinema John Woo-enthusiastic
Before the storm, it still wasn’t calm…
I believe at this point in time that John Woo, should either change his Asian-dance number in every movie he makes and every single fight sequence!! Today! Take on a new and different approach. If you don’t know what that means, John studied Dance, the flowing Asian style dancing and has used it, (I guess like football players study Ballet) using it in the shoot-outs and fighting scenes to add an element of grace and flowing movement to the stories’s scene.
Thank God, that he didn’t do the camera-shot over kill thing with the story and the shoot-out confrontation scenes in this. But as for this action story, I was all for this one! I truly enjoyed all the characters right down to the ‘crooked’ medical examiner, with the stress related nervous cough. The sleaze-bag o peddler, getting homeless to distribute his business sleazoid 900 number pamphlets, door to door no less.
It won and award and was nominated 5 more times! I liked Chance Boudreaux (Jean-Claude) in this New Oleans feature, he really came through. Next to the movie that a late friend of mine wrote (TIMECOP 1994) this has got to be the most powerfully enjoyable bang-up Van Damme movie, that exists, I say.
The area is questionable and dirty, some of it’s residents are seedy in operation, yet there is a certain beauty that surrounds them in Oleans.
Bravo for the cast of outstanding players, Henrikson as the primary villain, I loved that about this movie, he plays the piano in the movie beautifully, for real, on reel. Mr. Vasloo before ‘Titanic’ he is a great villain partner, who is agile and deadly. The chase is on and they are all scrambling to stay alive and out of destruction’s pathway. The accent from Van Damme, which is always with him, was an irreplaceable addition, to the taste and the culture of the country there. The music, yeah, it was the right music for the job! Playin’ C.C.R how ya not gonna love that, when you’re all the way down there? Jean Claude had just come into his-‘own’acting craft style but, did not seem to go on above it too far after ‘Hard Target’ was made. His career seemed to settle down not too many years after as well. Although he is still making movies, some aren’t bad either. He is a decent action hero, that can do different roles, with a good but limited ability.
But for this Woo film, I am applauding his best efforts, he stayed on a strong course with it, fine, fine actors and a good and gritty dirt in your teeth type of story, that brought Wilford Brimley as the wilderness ‘Uncle’ . The uncle with the explosives! Where was he when I was growing up? I could have really used em’. I rated this one highly, and recommend it as a great kicker of a fast paced manic action movie! Four kicks!!!! (****)
