4.0 out of 5 stars 3 1/2-4 stars- A solid entry for Van Damme June 23 2010
By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As in Hard Target(/93)and his more recent Until Death(2007),Van Damme once again bases his character in or from New Orleans in The Shepherd-Border Patrol(released March 2008).This taut action film shows us an area of topic of which Hollywood usually doesn't often touch on;the people who patrol and maintain border security along the US-Mexican line.
The story involves a New Orleans cop by the name of Jack Robideaux who comes to the small town of Columbus,New Mexico to join the border patrol.Jack's 16 year old daughter died of a drug overdose and to get some kind of closure and of course revenge for her death,he wants to help smash the local cartel sitting just across the border.When two drug cartel leaders meet in Mexico to discuss a cessation of hostilities between them,the henchmen of one group decide to kill both leaders and the others' thugs and take over the entire business for themselves.These are no ordinary henchmen however,they are trained ex army special servicemen who are thorough,very determined and deadly.This is the scenario Jack,unawares,walks into.
Jack's boss is Capt Garcia(Natalie Robb) and she warns Jack not to mess with the locals.In a restaurant in his first few minutes there he has to defend himself against a jealous local,who he dispatches very quickly.Next day Jack is reprimanded by the Captain and then coupled with his new partner Billy Pawnell(Gary McDonald).One of their first confrontations leads to the local border where there is a shoot out going on between border agents and some well armed Mexicans trying to cross.Jack and Billy swing around and come in from another direction and Jack manages to take down one of the fleeing illegals before they can re-enter the fence.This is no ordinary illegal however as he has explosives strapped to his body.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shepherd Herds in Rogue Special Forces Jan. 28 2008
By Robert Witmer - Published on Amazon.com
In "The Shepherd" (2008), Van Damme plays a Texas border cop battling former member from an elite U.S. military force who now turned their past expertise into running a proficient drug smuggling trade from Mexico into the US. The movie breaks new grounds for Van Damme as he moves in to a more mature role with stronger acting. Van Damme's trademark fight scenes highlights an upcoming martial artiste, Scott Adkins whose zeal nearly turns the staged studio fights into a legitimate match between the two with a visual delight jammed with innovative techniques and true-to-life kicks. Reality slips into the fights forcing and inspired and newly invigorated Van Damme to truly draw on his own genuine fighting history to legitimately weather his younger rival. By way of irony, Adkins in real life while growing up was inspired by Van Damme.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Shepherd over your Damme desires March 6 2008
By Christopher Heintz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I must say, I was really looking forward to this movie. And I was probably looking forward to Scott Adkins as much as I was to Van Damme. My expectations were high (even for a ridiculous b-movie like this) after what Issac Florentine and J.J. Perry did with Undisputed II. The movie wasn't spectacular and it didn't quite reach my highest hopes, but I wasn't disappointed. Van Damme played his usual laconic self - this time with a bunny. Scott Adkins' character wasn't very interesting either (and the main villain was a bit annoying), but you can't have it all with these kinds of movies.

With the exception of the final showdown, the fight scenes were very well shot and choreographed. J.J. Perry (the fight choreographer) did a great job with Van Damme's abilities while still giving him room to exhibit his "Van Damme" style. Scott Adkins was excellent as usual (although his skills are best displayed in the director's other films), but it doesn't seem that the writers gave much attention to Adkins' character, or the plot. My chief complaint is about the poor editing and screen effects used in the last fight scene between Damme and Adkins. It would have been an excellent fight if the editors had just left the fight alone and not tried to enhance it. And so the last fight was disappointing because of the editing.

On a five point scale, I'd give it a 3.5, but amazon doesn't give you half points to work with, so I decided to give it a 4. For the kind of movie this is, it was very satisfying. It's certainly Van Damme's best martial art movie of his direct-to-dvd career, at least until this point.

5.0 out of 5 stars Damme Good After All These Years! March 19 2008
By jamespen - Published on Amazon.com
The Shepherd: Border Patrol is a very good film! Van Damme's best and most action packed since Wake of Death. Seriously, all the good ingredients are in there, guys. There's plenty of hand to hand fighting in The Shepherd, even the gratuitous bar fight. There's a likable chemistry between the lead and supporting cast, and the villains are well picked. There's also a lot of good soundtrack work done in a style familiar to spaghetti westerns.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not too bad! Feb. 18 2008
By W. Ronald Ferguson - Published on Amazon.com
Although Van Damme has had fewer stinkers than those of his peers, he's had his share. This, however, isn't too bad. It's more polished and the dialogue more believable. But like so many others of this genre, it relies too much on formula. It's very predictable and making Bulgaria look like New Mexico was a bit of a stretch. In the end, though, it was entertaining. I like Van Damme and I hope he does more, but it would be good to see some surprises for a change.

4.0 out of 5 stars Van Damme is Kickin' Again! March 16 2008
By K.H. - Published on Amazon.com
I'm quite torn, after all, this movie, directed by Isaac Florentine, has some silly dialogue and obvious set-ups. Movies need to be rated according to the genre they belong. An action flick with a martial arts twist movie such as this is really quite average and should be 3 stars; however, Van Damme delivers a more than adequate job and he is back kickin' and punchin'! That is the primary reason for the four stars, he is kicking again and unlike "The Hard Corp" or "The Order" where he was kickin' too, this is more stylish and rugged.

Vam Damme, while no Oliver, has developed into a moderately decent actor. Time cop was probably the first movie to showcase this, but he was inconsistent in bringing out a fine acting performance (For example, Sudden Death - good, The Quest - bad). This movie does not have the depth in script or direction of "Until Death", yet, it is more enjoyable because Van Damme is once again the action and martial arts hero.

Further, Van Damme has always stayed in either great or at least good shape (unlike Seagal) and while he has aged in the face, he turns in some great martial arts scenes with Scott Adkins (whose fight scenes are terrific and villainous). So four stars, not because it is necessarily that great of a film, but because Van Damme is kicking again, and the kicking was fun to watch.
