Did You Know?
Freely based on Alexandre Dumas's novel "The Corsican Brothers", as the original working title was. It was even set to take place in France and Corsica.
During the first shootout, the same headlight of the enemy's vehicle gets shot out three different times.
Big surprise. HUGE surprise.
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!
