Van Damme Vs. the Russian Mafia - vintage Van Dammage's best action thriller my personal favorite

"Maximum Risk" is one of my personal favorite vintage Van Dammage's action thriller. I love this film to death, it is Van Damme Vs. the Russian Mafia and corrupt FBI agents. It is a decent action film from the 90's I saw. This was improvement over Street Fighter and The Quest. This was the first collaboration with Van Damme and Ringo Lam later they worked on direct-to-DVD "Replicant" and "In Hell". Jean-Claude Van Damme is joined by sexy and beautiful Natasha Henstridge (Species) in their most explosive roles yet.

Welcome to another movie review of my Van Damme Movie Marathon for December, the month of my birthday. 28th December is my birthday so I am making Van Damme movie reviews. I grew up watching this movie, I always loved this film, my mom bought me this movie on VHS tape before she past away. I was in 8th grade that time. I don't have the VHS tape anymore but I do have this movie on Blu-ray and watch it again I must say I agree with other reviews it is not just good it is one of Van Damme's best films from the 90's.

Jean-Claude Van Damme's solid acting performance plays a twins Mikhail Suverov and Alain Moreau in double role, separated at birth. Alain Moreau (Van Damme) is a French cop and an ex military sniper. He is investigating the life of his dead brother Mikhail Suverov trail leads him from beauty of the south of France to the mean streets of New York and in to arms of his brother's girlfriend (Henstridge). He is pursued by ruthless Russian mobsters and renegade FBI agents, the duo race against time to solve his brother's murder and exspose international conspiracy. Sparked by the erotic chemistry between Jean-Claude Van Damme and Natasha Henstridge, spectacular stunts and globe-hopping action.

I love the action sequence in this film, practical effect no CGI. The fights are real because Van Damme did his own fights stunts, that's how Van Damme fights not like was in Sudden Death in which he had stunt doubles for his fights. There was some stunt doubles in which Van Damme runs trough streets on New York dogging taxi cabs. Those were dangerous stunts Van Damme was in his best shape. This was Natasha Henstridge third role as Alex Bartlett in this movie and one of her best roles yet.

You have sex scene between Alain Moreau (Jean-Claude Van Damme ) and Alex Bartlett (Natasha Henstridge) I like, like Natasha Henstridge a lot as an actress she is beautiful and sexy. You have Jean-Claude Van Damme using his spin kick on a Russian mobster standing on a car. Van Damme hungs him self upside down and shoots the assailant with a chain saw with a gun in the legs and the guy cut whole meat with a chain saw, shocking. Fights off Red Face (Stefanos Miltsakakis) which was a good villain.

This a really good decent action film Ringo Lam directed well he made a great job, great fight sequences, good car chases, shoutouts. This was the second film Van Damme played twins again. Good stunt work one of my favorite Jean-Claude Van Damme films. I love this film to death I love sexy Natasha Henstridge in this movie so much.

Decent US Debut for Ringo Lam.

French Cop,Alain(Jean Claude Van-Damme)one day finds out he had a twin Brother,travels to America to find answers about who he was,and who murdered him.Running afoul of the Russian Mob,a Brian Bosworth Looking Hit-man,and crooked FBI agents along the way in New York.He also finds himself Protecting/falling in love with the dead bro's squeeze played by Natasha Henstridge.All leading up to a big shoot out in an abandoned Wherehouse...Sorta.This is not your usual Van Damme movie.

Matured Van Damme?Yep.

For starters Maximum risk is helmed by Asian-action-man,Ringo Lam.He gives the movie a lot of atmosphere and style.The fight scenes are realistic,gritty,and for the most part brutal.Notice Van Damme goes for the Jugular here.Breaking bones as well as high flying kicks. The gunfights are staged well.Some good chases.And a nice scene involving a chainsaw.

The scenery is worth it too.We start out in warm,beautiful,summertime France to Dead of winter, smelly, New York city.I think its a nice contrast arc on the story.

Lam gets one of the very best acting gigs outta Van Damme Yet.He is at his darkest and most volatile here.Natasha Henstridge is kinda wasted to anything but eye candy.Zach Grenier and Paul Ben Victor are just okay as the bad guys calling the shots.Trouble is they are not really a physical threat for Van Damme.Stefanos Miltsakais as Redface fits this bill very well.His 3 confrontations with Alain are worthwhile.although its get to be a little tedious bordering on parody.

This would probably be the best Van Damme movie if it were not for the slow pace and excessive dialog,which does serve a purpose.Its just we get some flashy action.Then 15 minutes go by leaving us wanting more.Then it starts up again.Brake.Gas.Brake.Gas.

The gunfights are good,but It seems Ringo was holding back a little from his usual trademark stuff to pacify the suits behind the scenes.

If your looking for the usual from JC,then go watch the Quest.This is a much more complex,adult-themed movie.

one of the best action movies

This movie stars Van Damme who has been in many B-movies and is known as a b-movie action star.I believe thats why this movie gets this low rating. This movie is an a-movie and one of the best action movies and one of my favorites.The rating is simply ridiculous.Van Damme may not be a first rate actor but can he hold his own in this kind of material.Everything else in this movie is first rate.The plot is interesting,there are all kinds of chases and action scenes,All the action scenes are terrific and there's plenty of them.The bad guy is one impressive dude,makes for some really awesome wrestling scenes with Van Damme. The girl is the gorgeous Natasha Henstridge.In my book this is one fine action movie.
