5.0 out of 5 stars This is Hockey! June 5 2002
By Timotee
The Stanley Cup is just about to happen in Pittsburgh, but a homicidal maniac rigs the arena full of explosives. He wants bank accounts to be put under his name or he will assassinate the Vice President. Only one man can stop him from fulfilling his greedy plans and that is the lord Van Damme! "Sudden Death" plays like "Die Hard" and "Under Siege," two tour de forces. Van Damme is a fire investigator who also fights. Of course. Unfortunately for him, he has two children who are snotty brats! Dire. When his daughter is kidnapped by a manly mascot, it's up to Van Damme to save her, the Vice President and the Penguins fans! He fights a mascot in a kitchen, guys all around the arena, diffuses bombs and saves the day. Luckily for him, the game went to sudden death which allowed him more time. Powers Boothe plays the deranged looney and Van Damme teaches him a lesson. Don't waste good food and don't be selfish! The helicopter the demon was in fell through the arena vertically and exploded with a vengeance! Hamanee times does a mortal have to mess with Van Damme? They should know better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dont Judge a Book By It's Author's Felony Record... April 24 2002
By A Customer
Anyone can brain-bash Jean-Claude Van Damme all they want..but put aside his media and legal troubles and all the rumors, and you'll find that 1995's 'Sudden Death' is a more than worthwhile movie. The Muscles from Brussels is Darren McCord, a former firefighter retired after a traumatic failed rescue attempt. While employed at Pittsburgh's Ice arena, he gives his young son and daughter two tickets to the Stanley Cup Play-Offs'. Arena security is on pins and needles, having to secure the rink to perfection to protect the United States Vice President (An Ok part played by Raymond Barry) as he attends the game. In the meantime, a cunning criminal (Powers Boothe)..(I wont give away his standing), takes the arena hostage unbeknownst to everyone but the ones inside the Presidential skybox. Superstar actor Powers Boothe is the perfect compliment to Jean-Claude's action masterpieces, accompanied by a 1-in-a-million script that gives a believable story and fantastic special effects a true spotlight. Director Peter Hyams puts touches of comedy that will work so well at first viewing, (If Youre Like Me), you'll probably have to stop the movie until you're done laughing. Just watch for the scene where Van Damme attempts to escape capture by Boothe's partners, by stealing the uniform off of the comatose Penguins goalie. Who would've thought after seeing Van Damme spin out movies like 'Bloodsport' and 'Kickboxer', that 'Sudden Death' would hit the big screen hard and still be recalled as his greatest movie of all time. This is NOT excessively violent or crude, and if you're a fan of Arnold Schwazenegger or Sylvester Stallone..this movie will be well worth your while to see or own. 'Sudden Death' is THE action movie of 1995 and a great flick for people who want a little bit of everything in it.

4.0 out of 5 stars SUDDEN DIE HARD Feb. 25 2002
By A Customer
SUDDEN DEATH is another DIE HARD knock off, but it delivers nontheless. It has a pretty good director at the helm (Peter Hyams) and a pretty good cast (incl. Van Damme with veteran character actors Powers Boothe, and Dorian Harewood). Whereas hostages in DIE HARD were in a tall high-rise building, this one takes place at a hockey arena sky box during the Stanley Cup playoffs. Van Damme (Darren McCord) pulls off the role as the lone security guard trying to stop terrorists from blowing up the joint and at the same time, has his son and daughter at the game. There are pretty good action sequences and fight scenes with some humor thrown in the mixture. Most notable is when Van Damme tells his son (Ross Malinger) with great discipline that he can not leave his seat at any time during the game and the boy does just that. Even after the whole crowd has left the arena when the terrorists blow parts of it up, the boy is still in his seat. Another funny scene is when Van Damme actually suits up as one of the hockey players and ends up playing goalie for a few moments in the game. All in all, a very entertaining movie with some plot and scenes lifted from DIE HARD, SPEED and other movies of this nature.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Van Damme movie so far June 13 2000
By jao
Format:VHS Tape
I've seen just about all of Van Damme's movies and I have to say that I think "Sudden Death" is the best one so far. It's not your typical Van Damme movie when you compare it to most of his others. Most of his movies are mainly just fights throughout most of the film, which is always awesome. But I think it's even better when a fighting movie such as "Sudden Death" has more of a plot to it.
Someone kidnaps his daughter and is holding her and the Vice President captive. The man holding them hostage wants a lot of money or he will blow up the whole hockey arena. Van Damme must find a way to get his daughter back while saving everybody else in the arena.
"Sudden Death" is what all the other Van Damme movies isn't. It has a major storyline to it, great special effects, and even a few funny parts such as when Van Damme has to be a real goalie in the game to keep the badmen from finding him. If you're a Van Damme fan or if you like great action movies, "Sudden Death" is definitely for you.
