After favorable reception by the audience is the first directorial work Sheldon Lettich under the name "AWOL" where the main role was played by a native of a small Belgium Jean-Claude van dam he decided a long time not disappear already the following year he released a new Thriller Double impact with same an actor.

We will not passionately screaming that this film became for many the display of childhood, although it is true, but should pay attention to mastery Jean-Claude van dam. No no doubt that the owner of a karate not gift get the time, the love and respect of the public, about eloquently than his playing "Double blow".

He brilliantly managed to cope with a difficult task to play two characters. He gave his images two twin brothers, not knowing about the existence of each other as much as 25 years, different personalities added (or divided?) each individual charisma, so that have the frame is not were no outerwear, they cannot be confused. It is not the top, of course, acting, but and this film is not a drama, an Oscar then no one cared about. Plus over a division of brothers did a good job makeup artists, hairdressers and costume — the mosquito nose not podtochit as say.

Virtuoso battle in the style of karate, harsh and honest heroes, sinister and cunning villains, the presence of shootings and even a love line — what do you need it in the early 90s to respect the part of the viewer to the next "cool" action movie? Yes practically nothing, but Jean-Claude van dam has given us a little bit more than the usual "fighting". A great representative of the genre.

Mr. CA

Mr. perfect

Mr. Silk panties

At the time of the release of the film, the main intrigue for all fans of fighters, was to the number of main characters. And exactly how to film Jean-Claude van dam — one, two, or an indefinite number? Were put forward different theories, up to participate in the film double of Jean. In the time of Internet it was, therefore, to extract information about the movies was nowhere. And because the main source of information was rumours, which like a contagion transmitted from one person to another. But in our age not all the rumors can be quickly checked, but about this movie, you can complete certainty is that Jean-Claude van dam in the movie played all the characters himself. Although there might be those who still then think differently. So to no one to offend, let say that Chad plays Jean-Claude, and Alex van Damme.

So for the story, twins-babies kill their parents are very bad guys, one of which character Bolo Yenga, but about it later. Themselves kids miraculously survive, and after a quarter of a century, their destiny will once again intertwine. One of them Chad, it as "Mr. silk panties", which sits on the twine in front of the girls in the gym, and practicing karate. Other Alex, it as "Mr. Cuban cigar", smuggling, cars and expensive liquor. And here he who worked as a guard of their parents with the word brought up one of them, arranges them meeting. To paired avenged scum who are guilty of death parents, and thereby restore justice.

That in the film will be action scenes, fighting Jean-Claude with van Damme, and main match "ZHKVD" from I have mentioned Bolo by Ying, and iron barrels. Bolo — this is a big plus to the entertainment of this film. After their work with whom "bloodsport", became popular both. So they re-confrontation, certainly pleased the audience. The more than a Bolo, not only a very racy rival, but very funny. Again, he was shown before the battle, some strange hand gestures that only he understands, and adorned with inflated pectoral muscles. But the final battle impressed much less than in the early "Bloody sports". Though to look as Jean straight leg beat iron drums, that was fun.

Do Jean three categories of movies: gorgeous (strong) good (average), unfortunate (weak). Films from the first category were much more, and the third very little. So that's a given film refers to the second category. It is not the best in the career of Jean, but not the worst, he simply good.

Another good and cute Hollywood movie 90 times. With Jean-Claude van Damme (remember to be very fond of them in the time, what muscles, what a sight, yeah myself all just as brutal uuu-xxx).

Jean-Claude van dam, as always, is brilliant in the lead role, although the picture on my opinion, will be worse than his previous movies. But the film pulls an interesting storyline that allows you to watch an actor playing a completely different character twin brothers. Played great, and in my childhood (Oh, in the child especially!) and now in the revision of u I had a feeling that is it real 2 different people. Jean-Claude here at him! There is in the movie, of course, and cons, they are slightly spoil the impression of and but not want they say, it hurt here is a good van Damme! And this brand stretching, mother dear is simply to die not to rise. And he famously kicking throwing enemies, adding a blow of his iron fist. Just super.

It is possible to tell the film is numbered among the van Damovski movies! The scene where are both brother — mounted just gorgeous! Utter faith that they are different people. Yeah and the nature of both the characters Jean-Claude conveyed masterfully. Even in our time, great and even pretty cool Thriller. Best role van the Damme. Done perfectly, finding fault even with desire what. And then now 20 years — only 5+ and recommendations to all who by some miracle, it haven't seen (today I watched it with pleasure). Tricks and battle very impressive, no doubt better to get under the train than under attack from left van Damme. The film looks easy and relaxed. As I remember — double van Damme, double impact. It wasn't the film is there was an atmosphere of youth, of carefree fun, fun communication.

To me this movie resembles that of another popular movie in those years, from Jackie Chan "Gemini dragons". And a similar plot and characters. And I watched both the movie both are good. To still sometimes the mood, of course.

Film Double impact was colorful and dynamic. In the movie has a lot of high-quality special effects, nice gunplay. For fans of movies from participation van Damme, in the picture surprisingly little specific fights, although it involves Corinna Everson Bolo Yeung (Oh, this terrible Chinese with a scar on your face, still in reviewing the film, goose body of its kind), but those there, perfectly placed. The film release of the early 90s, when a lot of cold war high quality out on the world screen. And that this picture is not lost to the General background, says its high quality. Almost 30 years film, everytime I have come to love! For the first time looked Double impact in 1992. And like good wine this film with every year is better. Even their children are not ashamed to show it. van Damme everything shows correctly in his film, it all simply, soulfully, ethically and mentally. And "ballet" from it is always the way, the beauty in this life no one has been cancelled. Then were the Golden years for the actor, films with his participation was considered a benchmark of the genre.

What is a good actor? One who we believe when we see on the screen. So, when van Damme was crying and we believe when I laughed, believed and when you just talked and when he played the fool and when they beat someone also believe, and therefore he is a good actor. But here two different brother turned out. That say, setting the fighting done, as expected to high level, especially the final matches of the failed at sight for sore eyes. Elonna Show like the unknown actress, but in the outfits she looks great, especially in the red dress. Jeffrey Lewis who played uncle Alex Chad probably the point of view of flow acting here out of competition, managed to remember, although I do so much screen time. In General, the film is good, you can easily reconsider at times.
