5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie Sept. 20 2011
Format:DVD
Assassination games is a great movie. Also there are 8 deleted scenes as bonus on the DVD. Jean-Claude Van Damme is great, but don't expect a lot of kicking and martial arts. There is action but more with guns. Van Damme's acting is very good in this one. Scott Adkins shows his great acting ability in this. The duo is very good together on screen. I enjoyed this movie.

For a movie plagued with pre production problems such as this one,where Van Damme`s proposed co-star Steven Seagal dropped out and the story`s premise was re-written,it is a wonder the film came out as well as it did.Starring along with Van Damme is Scott Rudin(X men Origins:Wolverine) and Van Damme`s two siblings,son Kristopher as one of the two corrupt Interpol agents and his daughter Bianca who plays Rudin`s bed ridden wife Anna Flint.Again Van Damme and company have picked a good solid group of actors and behind-the-camera crew so that the results are quite good.
The plot involves the head of Interpol,under investigation for selling and profiting through illegal arms sales.There is an open end he wants closed,in the form of an assassin for hire named Roland Flint.Flint took the proceeds from a sale gone bad and went into hiding after his wife was brutally raped(and left in a coma)and Flint himself almost killed,by a local Romanian thug by the name of Polo.Simultaneously we have another assassin for hire in the picture and his name is Vincent Brazil(Van Damme).Brazil`s oft used contact for jobs gives him the assignment of coincidentally killing Polo.At the same time Flint is also given the job by an old Interpol contact,but does not know who his target is or that there is another involved.Flint`s job is in actuality a ruse by the head of Interpol and two agents in on his corruption scheme,to snuff out Flint so they can get rid of their loose end once and for all.
The moment of truth arrives as Polo is set up above and across of the assassination location.Out walks Polo,Flint lines his shot and fires but hits the roof of a small truck as it rounds the corner and into his line of fire.

4.0 out of 5 stars Action with intelligence and style March 17 2013
By Charles Dimov TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
For the shoot-em-up, adrenaline rush enthusiast who also appreciates some intelligent artistry. A mature Van Damme film shot in a slight Sepia tone that gives the movie an Eastern European, rustic feel. It is a good action movie with enough intelligence and character development to draw in the audience, get a sense of the characters beyond typical 2D of most action movies, and provides more than just a broad stroke gunshot to graphic gunshot movie.

It was refreshing to watch a big ticket film which does not patronize the audience.

Great action movie. Significant gun-play.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Enough for a Sequel Sept. 7 2011
By W. J. Barnaby - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Having resigned myself to accepting the Van Damme heyday was over and the remainder of his career would be limited to less than average DTV releases, along comes Assassination Games to revive my crestfallen heart and
prove low budget action does not have to be mindless, derivitive, and action-less abhorrations of film where the producer's only goal was to create a 90 minute timeline that could be packaged and labeled as a 'movie.'

While many are quick to categorize this film as standard action fare, nothing about it is standard: the dialogue, while just a notch above average, is coherent and well paced; the direction is competent; and the supporting players can actually act, entertaining you when the leads aren't on screen. I disagree with the reviewer who stated the lead villain (Polo Yakur, played by Ivan Kaye), was nothing more than a 'typical' heavy, because Kaye - while admittedly serving a narrow spectrum in the film - did inflect subtleties to make the character seem a grieving human being rather than just another over the top villain strutting around for the sake of malevolence.

It's true there isn't much fighting in this movie, but the fighting that is present serves purpose rather than being a fight scene dropped into the storyline simply to satisfy machismo. Because this movie works, you don't pine for more fighting or action, you want to see what happens to the characters. You become transfixed on the action but are satisfied with an even bigger bang when you learn where the action is leading. It's a mix that we rarely see in any DTV release nowadays, and I'm surprised this film was not given wider distribution in theaters.

As a Jean-Claude Van Damme film, I'm happy to say it is, beyond doubt, the best he has done in a long time. While The Shepard was watchable despite its predictable flaws, even die hard fans must admit to disappointment during a long dry spell of DTV crap where the only saving grace was Van Damme himself, lost amidst amateurish, no-talent schlock. With this single film, his heinous mistakes of the past - Derailed, Until Death, etc - are forgotten and forgiven. As a Scott Adkins film, it shows how good an actor he can be, thank goodness, something desperately needed in this genre when the action hero isn't kicking somebody around. As a team, the two performed well together and, I daresay, I'd be happy to see those two characters together again in a sequel. By the end of the film they have bonded and earned respect from each other, which is just the beginning for far more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of action from martial arts favorites Van Damme and Adkins Aug. 3 2011
By marie henson - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Assassination Games opens with a demonstration of the smooth proficiency of hitman Vincent Brazil (Jean-Claude Van Damme) as he attacks with his primary weapons of choice - anything with a blade. The tone of the movie is then set for the dealings of those in this dark business and the cold, callous exteriors these professional killers display. But they are human after all, so expect to find that they do have a heart thought it may generally stay deeply buried.

Roland Flint (Scott Adkins) prefers to make his hits with his considerable arsensal of firearms. Brazil and Flint are brought together when they each go after the same target but for very different reasons. Soon they become the targets for hits and forge a necessary but uncomfortable union. Can they or should they trust each other? Hitmen like to work alone.

Van Damme and up-and-comer Adkins deliver a few good fight scenes but emphasis is on their weapons and their relationship as they take on mobsters and dirty government officials. While the plot is not unique, Assassination Games has moments when it stands solidly on it's on feet. A very good supporting cast elevates this to a movie that has been shown in limited theatrical release and lands high on the heap of strait to DVD action films. If action is what you're after plus a few grisly surprises, Assassination Games will not disappoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Van Damme triumphs in riveting cat-and-mouse thriller! Sept. 18 2011
By W. Gantt - Published on Amazon.com
"This is what he does best, and he is the best." A corrupt Interpol officer makes that observation about Roland Flint, the character depicted by Scott Adkins in the riveting "Assassination Games." The accolade truly applies to the film's star Jean-Claude Van Damme, who has translated his experience as a global superstar into becoming a superior actor in the action films genre'. "Assassination Games" is another example that the original "Muscles from Brussels" has evolved into a creative force behind fast-paced movies that are both character-driven and visually stylish without resorting to CGI tricks or the usual action movie cliches'. JCVD depicts Vincent Brazil, who becomes a reluctant partner with Flint in a cat-and-mouse game against both Interpol and relentless members of a European mob. Brazil's relationship with an unlikely girl-next-door named October provides the dramatic anchor for a tense mix of tragedy and revenge. When October kisses Vincent on the cheek for his kindness toward her, Van Damme depicts the hitman's resistance to affection with a truthful emotion that is both telling and heartbreaking. It is just one of many moments, both quiet and explosive, in "Assassination Games" that demonstrate JCVD's superiority as an actor in action films today.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent little action flick. Sept. 6 2011
By Michael K. Giaimo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Caught this at a theater nearby and I have to say that I did enjoy this. It wasn't great or even "really good" but it was better than most of JCVD's other dtv movies(excluding US3 and Replicant)...and better than some of his later theatrical movies(Street Fighter,Double Team,Knock Off, Unisol:The Return). I think putting it on the same level as Wake of Death is pretty fair. I actually may have liked this a little more since it didn't feature the dopey MTV edits that WOD had. The acting was pretty solid all around for the most part. JC's son, Kris' character(Schell) was extremely pointless in my opinion...not to mention he sucked in it. Felt like he was reading his lines the entire movie. I really liked JC and Adkin's chemistry together. They played off each other really well but I was left wanting to see more of them sharing the screen. There were a few aspects I didn't care for but I don't want to spoil anything. Production wise, the movie looks pretty good considering the budget. It's well directed and shot. Good music score too. However, I actually feel like it would have made for a better at home experience than a theatrical one. The sepia tone actually looked a little blurred on the big screen during some of the wide shots...and I did find myself craving a little color. Close ups looked good though. All in all, it was a pretty good movie. This gives me hope for The Butcher. If Ernie Barbarash had a little more money to work with, he'd do a hell of a job. 3.25/5
