One man's search for his soul leads him on the ultimate journey. In his most spectacular adventure to date, acclaimed action superstar Jean-Claude Van Damme directs and stars in this exotic odyssey that takes him from the slums of New York to the mysterious Lost City of Tibet. Van Damme portrays a 1920s street criminal whose run from the police thrusts him into a forbidding realm of gun smugglers, pirates and an ancient, underworld martial arts competition. The legendary contest, known as the Ghan-gheng, pits the world's deadliest fighters against each other in a furious winner-take-all battle. Forced to compete, Van Damme faces the ultimate test of manhood where one wrong move could cost him not only the competition, but his life. Roger Moore co-stars in this spectacular epic that holds audiences spellbound with its ancient mystery, stunning scenery and thrilling action.

The item was exactly as advertised and arrived swiftly. Thanks.
Unlike what Van Damme movies are usually known for, "The Quest" does have a good plot, and it's even directed by Van Damme himself. He should make more movies like this. "The Quest" has a plot, the fighting is exciting, and it's a good movie. I recommend anybody who likes good fighting movies to get "The Quest." You'll be glad you went along on this quest.
A really good point to this movie was that it was really diverse in the martial arts in this movie. There was everything from both styles of Capoiera (Brazilian and Angola), Muay Thai kickboxing, Kung Fu and Karate and of course, how could you go wrong with the occasional brawler?
One thing that really ate as far as the movie was concerned was that there were some corny parts like how Van Damme gets left behind at "Muay Thai Island"? Why didn't they just say he gets left in Thailand, wouldn't that have sounded a little better?
Anyway, for a Van Damme movie it's pretty good and worth a rental. I wouldn't put too much hype into this one because like I said, you're not really watching this one because it's a great story or the acting is so great, it's because the action in this one speaks for itself.
*** 1/2 out of *****
Prior to release, Van Damme had been going around saying it will be a pure action film, returning to his 'Bloodsport' roots. I wish. For $20 million dollars cheaper, 'Bloodsport' makes 'the Quest' look like 'Best of the Best IV'.
For starters, it's rated PG-13, so the action can't be all out--something we don't have to worry about when his films are rated 'R.' Secondly, what little fighting there is only surfaces in the last 25 minutes of the film. While as a director, Van Damme doesn't make many resolutely bone-headed mistakes, he should stay away from vanity projects like this one.
The film itself is quite boring, and while it is amusing to see Roger Moore pick up his paycheck and run (it's been a hard life since 'View to a Kill'), nothing merits buying this on DVD.
