WOW! I think Van-Damme out did himself on this one. Before you watch this movie you have to prepare yourself for the non-stop action, I mean non-stop. Rodman, even has a couple good one-liners, but not as good as Van-Damme. The movie is probably one of the most entertaining masterpieces that the action genre has seen. Van-Damme really puts his skills to work in this movie, and Mickey Rourke was cast perfectly in this movie, and his on-screen chemistry with Van-Damme is just spectacular. A brilliant story line and Damme good action are what really bring this movie together, the action scenes <more>
are like watching Michelangelo's David take shape and all you can do is stand in awe at it's beauty. Van-Damme is a man on a mission, and won't stop for anything on this roller coaster ride of excitement, laughter, and adventure.
It's awesomeness shines like the heat of a thousand suns (by droog-655321)
This film could never have been bad with these ingredients: An experienced Belgian actor with a penchant for face-kicking and poor dancing, a cross dressing freak-of-nature pro basketball player and Mickey Rourke. Jean-Claude Van Damme plays family guy come some kind of agent for some kind of anti terrorist organisation Jack Quinn. He hates glass. a lot. At least 2/3 of this whole film is just awesome shots of him either jumping through or throwing other people through various glass surfaces. awesome. Something bad happens and he ends up on a stupid island but no island can hold Jean-Claude <more>
Van Damme! He escapes by cutting part of his thumb off, how awesome is that? After he gets off the Island he has to track down the awesomely evil villain Stavros Mickey Rourke with the help of wacky sidekick Yaz Dennis Rodman .I wont give too much away because you have to see this film for yourself, really. All I will say is that he kicks a tiger in the face! A freakin tiger! One word: Awesome.
"Disturbing, but good" "like a comic, pulp fiction, MTV" (by M.Ray)
Fascinating, Van Damme can kill a tiger. I always knew he could. Tsui Hark, truly the god of action see Knock Off, please lots of slo-mo, stop motion, incredible fights. Again Van Damme walks on water.
Action thriller! (by friedshrimp-2)
Jean-Claude Van Damme is great in this film. He unites with Rodman to fight terrorists. Has plenty of action and some jokes. Lots of scenes with pretty backgrounds. The acting was good and could have been better. Worth watching.
Van-Damme at his techno-MacGyver best with kicks attached! (by batcave-1)
Spoilers attached maybe: Van damme and Dennis Rodman team up to be directed by one of asian action cinema's best action directors Tsui Hark. Also known to some as the Colony, this van damme movie is damme good. From the market shootout/fight to what has to be one of Van dammes best fights, set in the Rome coloseumm Van Damme kicks it out with awesome style and Hark's electric camera shots and editing make this one of his best fights. Rodman kicks ass too but mainly his role is one-liners but still this is a Van Damme movie and one of his best behind TimeCop and Hard Target.
The oddest team-up I ever seen! (by GOWBTW)
This movie to me is one of the oddest team-up of all times. Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dennis Rodman. I thought this movie would be a total bomb. Nope! It was very entertaining. Jean-Claude Van Damme plays a former CIA Agent who has to track down a killer who got his wife and unborn child. Dennis Rodman, who was suspended from the Chicago Bulls gets his acting chops together playing Yaz, a flamboyant arms dealer. He took the X-rays of Jack Quinn's Van Damme unborn son, Yaz knows anything like that won't be tolerated with. He helps Quinn all the way. In the fight scene, Yaz can hold <more>
his own in martial arts. Then he slams dunks a villain into a bus. Saying, "Does this make this a 5 pointer?" From all those years in basketball, you can make up your own score tactics. Starvos Mickey Rourke , is ruthless and cold-blooded. Having his son killed, he wants to do the same to Quinn. Thanks to the work of Yaz, Starvos made his final step against Quinn. His revenge didn't go as planned, as to say. Very good movie, and it's a slam dunk of a movie! 3 out of 5 stars!
Does your hair change colour when you sweat?...... (by FlashCallahan)
Jack Quinn is top counter-terrorist, and before his final mission he misses terrorist Stavros. During this epic battle, Quinn is wounded and sent to the Colony, where everyone else presumes he is dead.He is reassured by Belloq from Raiders, and gets fit by smoking cigarettes, and lifting a bath.Stavros had his son killed in the earlier fight and as revenge he is hunting Quinn's pregnant wife. Quinn joins forces with vivid arms dealer Yaz to fight Stavros, and a tiger.....This film, and Knock Off are easily Van Dammes most bizarre movie, but they are nothing short of entertaining.The <more>
editing is all over the shop, and the script is undoubtedly awful, but I had so much fun watching this, and still do every time I put it in my machine.Van Damme is as good as always, and Rourke as you would expect. Rodman, well he's in it, and that's all I can say.The fight scenes are awesome, some of the camera-work inspired, and the fact that it's on less than 90 minutes, only adds to the charm.Yes it may have lots and lots of flaws, but it's entertaining, and any film that involves a man kick shoes at Van Damme or the man kick a tiger, has to be seen.
Most people will dismiss this as junk. I, on the other hand... (by BA_Harrison)
A logic-free action flick that stretches plausibility way beyond breaking point, Double Team stars Jean-Claude Van Damme as counter-terrorist expert Jack Quinn who, after a botched mission to kill international terrorist Stavros Mickey Rourke , becomes an unwilling participant in a top secret think-tank on a remote island colony for agents that are considered 'too valuable to kill, but too dangerous to set free'.When Stavros Mickey Rourke abducts Jack's pregnant wife, having vowed revenge for the accidental death of his son during the earlier shootout, Jack escapes the colony, <more>
seeks help from an S&M freak gun dealer named Yaz played by eccentric basketball bad-boy Dennis Rodman , and embarks on a dangerous rescue mission that culminates in an explosive showdown inside a coliseum.Opening with Quinn escaping from some bad guys by jumping a heavily armoured stolen vehicle through a speeding train without the aid of a ramp , this film is completely crazy from the get go, and Hong Kong director Tsui Hark doesn't let the insanity subside until the very end, chucking in such spectacular nonsense as Van Damme kicking the crap out of bad guys while hanging from an air-plane cargo net, a Chinese killer who uses his knife with his foot, a top secret society of cyber-monks, and a finale that sees the good guys fight a tiger in the middle of a mine field before escaping certain death from fireball through the use of a Coke vending machine.Special mention must also be made of the incredible amount of glass that gets smashed during the film usually because someone has been thrown through it .Although I'll never quite understand how this film got green-lit, I'm sure glad it did: a more enjoyably insane piece of 90s nonsense you'll be hard pushed to find.Call me crazy, but I rate Double Team 8 out of 10 simply for being so bloody silly.
