Movie Reviews

Van Damme summons the power of Chuck Norris's mullet from th
Sid the Elf | North Pole | 02/27/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Is there really anything better then an early 90's action flick? The answer is of course NO! There's just something special about this era in action that keeps us always coming back for more with no end in sight. Out of all our great reviews surprisingly we are very low on the Van Damme count which is something that must change after watching the 5 star extravaganza Hard Target. The mussels from Brussels is surely in the top ten of all-time action hero's and now will have to be seriously considered in Sid's future B viewing options. It's really amazing how there is no possible way to run out of B material to watch and review.

Hard Target starts with ultra rugged Chance Boudreaux (Van Damme) whose unemployed and looking for a job in a very dangerous New Orleans. Enter Natasha Binder whose looking for here lost former combat vet father to only discover he's been murdered by Emil Fouchon (Lance Henriksen) and his partner Pik Van Cleef in a ver special way. Yeah he's been a victim of a human hunting game almost identical to the style in Death Ring! That leads us to believe they got a hold of the Death Ring script, saw the goldmine it was, and had to recruit Van Damme since Mike Norris was already taken. Once Natasha gets the help from Chance it's simply known as "go time." The only chance Lance Henriksen has against Van Damme is if he were to resurrect Pumpkinhead for a battle royal of B glory. Naturally Chance proves himself as the ultimate prey and even finishes off Emil with the old grenade down the pants trick.

So despite the fact that Hard Target clearly was overshadowed by the success of Mike, Cad, and Don in Death Ring it was still an amazingly awesome movie. Van Damme was a force to be reckoned with sporting the finest mullet since Chuck Norris in Hellbound. It's what gave him his super human strength in this movie. There were so many explosions and amazing fight scenes leaving us speechless. The best part, outside of the great ending showdown, had to be the motorcycle gunfight where Van Damme stand ups on his hog while shotting at a moving car to jump over it doing a shoulder roll and land on his feet. It's that typical fantastic action of the 90's that just can't be touched by anything else."
