This time he plays Sam, an escaped convict, who befriends single mother of two, Clydie (Arquette). She is going through a tough time as a mean developer (Joss Ackland) is trying everything he can do to get her land. Sam stays with her and helps her in her struggle.
One would typically think that being a Van Damme movie he would do a lot of hand to hand fighting as normal but he actually tries to act in a serious roll. It didn’t come off that way to me, he is just not that great as a serious actor. The story was ok, nothing new about it. We have seen similar stories before. During his motorcycle chase you can totally see the use of a stunt double and how fake some of the cops acted while trying to catch him. Now Arquette, she was good in this and lets face it, easy to look at. I believed her in her roll. Can’t remember where this was filmed but I loved the location, the house and property were beautiful. I should boost it to three stars but I was just not that impressed with him in this one, he never played a criminal well, just a hero. Sorry, this dvd will go in my yard sale box!
