Makes you wanna kick butt right along with him. Its suspenseful and intriguing. You care about what happens to the characters and that in my opinion is what makes a movie.

A completely generic Van Damme film that tries to push him towards a romantic lead sort of feel, this one never quite gels, but there's some nice nudity from Rosanna Arquette's scrappy single mom character and lots of excuses for JCVD to lay the hammer down on faceless goons. Fun time waster, but nothing you need to seek out.

This is one of his top 5 performances, and it's also the first movie where he really stretched himself outside of the "martial arts guy" rink. The director handles everything, from the very dramatic, a simple conversation between Rosanna Arquette and the corrupt sheriff is one of the most intense and gripping moments of the film, to the action, an early scene where a sniper rifle (maybe? I'm not too good with guns) is fired and we become the bullet is a standout, exceedingly well. He elevates the material, and gets a somewhat natural performance out of Damme, and his chemistry with Arquette is probably his best to date with any of his female leads (out of the movies I have so far seen). The cinematography is also very good, with the wide open terrain seemingly engulfing him, and truly giving him "nowhere to run".
