Format: DVD
I grew up watching "Beau Geste" (which is a film which deserves to be on DVD)and all other films about the French Foreign Legion fall or rise to that film's greatness. That being so, "Legionnaire" stands as a solid drama of the men who join the legion to forget their past lives and to rebuild new ones--if they survive. The film is well-crafted and the wide-screen format is perfect in bringing the viewer the feel of the desert--its vastness, its heat, and its beauty. The film's action scenes are sensational and the final battles are both memorable and brutal. Jean-Claude Van Damme proves he is more than just a good body or fighting machine--he does some fine acting in this film. One wishes that it could be seen on the large screen--it deserves it.

Format: DVD
Van Damme has a few movies under his belt, but they are a mixed bunch, that's for sure. Legionnaire, however, is one of Van Damme's better movies. Van Damme plays a Frenchman who joins the Foreign Legion after a tangled love affair goes wrong. We get some action before Van Damme joins the Legion, by way of boxing matches and then we are provided with some quality military action set in the desert. I must confess to enjoying this movie. Van Damme didn't overact and he actually suited the role. His supporting cast also did a nice job. The locations were quite inspiring. The script was very cliche in parts, but was acceptable. The highlight for me was the ambush and climatic battle scene in the latter stages of the movie. They were very well done. Overall, a well done action movie set around an uncommon theme and location. Recommended.

Format: DVD
This immortal piece of cinema pits the genius Jean-Claude Van Damme to join the French legion. After establishing himself as "A Genius", Van Damme impersonates a French legion officer and he becomes the lone survivor after a merciless battle. I can see he was trying to be Rambo, but he fell a little short. Rambo is pretty much an icon in American history, you can't touch that. This movie should have played in the theaters instead of going straight-to-tape. Tragedy! A good effort though Van Damme.

Format: DVD
I'd never even heard of "Legionaire" until a skit on "Saturday Night Live" (where Kris Kattan portrayed VanDamme) made fun of the fact that nobody saw this movie. I of course thought that this movie must be godawful, so I rented it just to be entertained by its horribleness. But I was amazed at what a great movie this was! It was kind of cheesy in places (like those stupid flashbacks that are supposed to be heartwarming and touching but are really just annoying) but the action sequences are really good. I'm surprised that a decent movie like this goes straight to video while other movies which are far more lame and stupid make it to the big screen. If you rent it you won't be disappointed, especially if you have low expectations to begin with

Une histoire intéressante, malgré plusieurs longueurs. La fiche indiquait bien "Dubbed: French, Spanish", mais le DVD n'est qu'en anglais, sans sous-titres, ce qui m'a déçu.

The 1 star rating is not for the movie, its for a manufacturing mix up. Let me start by saying I like this movie. It's a more mature work for Van Damme and well done. I'd rate the movie 5 stars. Twice, however (once from a seller on amazon) I have purchased this disc with the intention of getting the widescreen edition with all the special features indicated on the case, only to be disappointed by discovering the full screen edition (in the sealed widescreen packaging) with virtually no special features (case indicates product #7145, disc has product #7146). The seller thankfully issued a refund and I guess I'll try again some time but probably a used copy where the content is confirmed by the seller.
