Product Description

Prepare for Maximum Van Dammage when action superstar Jean-Claude Van Damme is joined by sexy newcomer Natasha Henstridge (Species) in their most explosive roles yet! Alain Moreau's (Van Damme) investigation into the death of his identical twin brother leads him from the beauty of the south of France to the mean streets of New York City and into the arms of his brother's beautiful girlfriend (Henstridge). Pursued by ruthless Russian mobsters and renegade FBI agents, the duo race against time tosolve his brother's murder and expose an international conspiracy. Sparked by the erotic chemistry between Van Damme and Henstridge, spectacular stunts, and globe-hopping adventure, MAXIMUM RISK is "vintage Van Damme" -Bob Ross, TAMPA TRIBUNE.

Amazon.ca

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.

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.

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...

By The Movie Guy HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Aug. 7 2015
Format: Blu-ray
The film opens "South of France" which would be what? Spain? Andorra maybe? Nope. It was still France. We then see Jean-Claude Van Damme get killed and then we see him attending a funeral, but it wasn't even his funeral. As it turns out he is dead in an ambulance (a French one and not a Spanish one) looking at himself. Mom never told him about the twin she sold into white slavery. His twin would be raised in America being a wage slave in the capitalist system. But wait, he managed to escape all that by working for the Russian Mafia because the Albanians haven't made it big yet, and you can't get babes like Natasha Henstridge working at Wal-Mart, even if you make manager with benefits.

For some reason, Claude decides to investigate himself and travels to America only to discover the most annoying cab driver, who has English as his first language. At some point in time I would have backed out, but not Van Damme who still had 45 minutes to get into the can, and with a body count that was almost nil.

Mindless Van Damme fun.

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.

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.

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.

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!
