Van Damme/Henstridge ~ Maximum Risk


When a kickboxing police inspector is murdered, his kickboxing twin brother infiltrates the Russian mob in order to see justice meted out--as painfully as possible. A slimmed-down Jean-Claude Van Damme is surprisingly effective as the lead(s), but the real star here is gritty Hong Kong director Ringo Lam (probably best known for City on Fire, the film that inspired Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs), who makes a lethal American debut with this hard-edged, convoluted film, which uses the identical-sibling gimmick to considerably darker effect than the goofball Double Impact. Some incredible stunt work and a terrifically ruthless final reel make this underrated action film a winner, although fans of Species may be somewhat disappointed that costar Natasha Henstridge never fully displays the assets that made her famous. --Andrew Wright --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of JCVD's best movies!!! April 30 2004
This was a great flick that had action from start to finsh! If you like a lot of shootouts, car crashes, and SUPER HOT women like Natasha Henstridge then you will love this movie. The director Ringo Lam (from Replicant) does a great job with all the camera angles. The best angles were when JCVD does his shooting and the stunts were amazing. This is plain and simply a great movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Damme Good Action Movie!!! Jan. 11 2004
By Nathan
THIS HAS TO BE ONE OF VAN DAMME'S TOP 3 MOVIES. There is plenty of action and excitement that will make you want to watch it over and over again. Natasha Henstridge is down right sexy and georgeous. She played a perfect role in this movie. The movie was well-acted and thought it deserved a 5 star. This movie is a must-own on DVD. The sound quality is great as well as the picture. *Van Damme kicks plenty of...

4.0 out of 5 stars Some damme good action here July 20 2002
By jao
Format:VHS Tape
A cop (Van Damme) just found out about something new. He's had a twin brother all these years and didn't know it, but the bad part is that he just found out by finding his twin's dead body. Little does this cop know that his twin brother was a Russian agent. Since he looks just like the person that just died, everybody around town thinks he's someone he's not. When it comes to the mafia and FBI agents, this just might spell trouble.
Like he did in "Double Impact", Jean-Claude Van Damme once again plays the role of twins, although not as much this time around. "Maximum Risk" might be a bit shallow on plot depth, but who cares? Van Damme movies are known for their great stunts, action, and especially the fighting sequences, and let me tell you, there is A LOT of each in this movie.
The stunts, special effects, etc. come together as one to make "Maximum Risk" a fast paced, suspense filled adventure that all Van Damme fans should watch.
It might not be one of his top five movies, but if you're a fan of other Van Damme movies, then checking out "Maximum Risk" isn't that big of a risk to take.

5.0 out of 5 stars The legend lives on! April 27 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Directed by Ringo Lam (Replicant), this flick is both fun and intense. The action sequences (martial-arts aside) are impressive and shocking. Van Damme takes on double-duty as twin brothers, but his role is moreover played by a confused outsider who doesn't understand his roots.
The acting (all around) is believable, and the scenario is darker than Van Dammes' previous roles. Enjoy this trip on the wild-side, as Jean Claude actually plays a convincing role caught in the middle of corruption.
So you don't like Jean-Claude? Go away. Though no acting genius, Van Damme hasn't tried to be something he is not (Stallone, Schwarzenegger) and he has stuck to fun films that can be enjoyed by all.
Director Ringo Lam has thrown a twist into the average Van Damme film. It's actually interesting beyond incredible martial arts. Yes, people, there is a story here. This is a big-budget, blow-your-mind special-effects extravaganza that leaves you saying, how...did they do that?
Strap in and hang on. This is Van Dammage like you've never seen before!

The movie is very action packed. The Movie has a plot-Van Damme has to stop drug traffikers from getting their way in society. There are fight scenes, and they are good. The woman actress is a very beautiful woman with a good body, and has a very beautiful image. She knows how to act. I recommend this film to all races, Anglo people, Latin People, Asian People, etc. Van Damme[Jean Claude Van Varenberg]is a fantastic actor who should receive an oscar for his fine performances in most of his films. Some of his films are average, but those that are good, are good.Many people might cut down this actor, because they are envious of the fact that he is gifted by life, and he is a good actor, and he has good love scenes with pretty girls [in the movies], and has pretty women in this country and around the globe who love him alot.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Maximum' Lordage June 5 2002
By Timotee
Another twin movie, but without a twin. Yes! Van Damme gets killed at the beginning of the movie and his twin brother fills his shoes to find out why he died. Natasha Henstridge pays tribute to the immortal that is Van Damme and helps him deliver major risky business! Van Damme acts again for, the third time? It's a real exotic picture and it feels like a jacuzzi. Steamage! Van Damme fights guys all over the world in this one. You could say 'same old, same old,' but NO! This movie has a fight in a fire and in an elevator where the bad guy gets stained toes. Ouch! Cut back to the chase now, Van Damme and Henstridge make this movie work and it deserves to be purchased immediately.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad for a Van Damme movie. Jan. 9 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I am not a Van Damme fan (don't care for his stony face and an overdose of martial arts). I happened to catch this at a friend's place. But this movie has a surprisingly good plot, good pace, good action (the car chases could have been toned a notch), good direction and a good performance by Van Damme. I wish he could have displayed some more emotion.

4.0 out of 5 stars utterly Van Damme's best Oct. 27 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Van Damme has Derailed and went In Hell for some of his career, but this one I would say is his best, well next to Universal Soldier and Bloodsport I'd say its right up there with them. basically about Van Damme getting killed and then Van Damme coming into his brothers life. fast action and a good finale make this worth while
