User Review

Superb action

Rating:

Double Impact is one of Van Damme`s finest moments on the actionfilm-arena.
It delivers what it must to succeed, namely tons of great fighting scenes,
which is what Van Damme-movies are all about(well, almost). If you want to
rent an old action-flick, Double Impact is one of the best movies Van Damme
has ever done!
9/10
