User Review

Claude & Roseanna Show Off

Rating: 7/10


This is another Jean-Claude Van Damme action flick, but a definite
notch above many of his other films, at least in production values. The
photography and stereo sound are excellent.

Actually, this is pretty simple stuff and old storyline of a low-key
good guy rescuing the girl from local meanies. Here, Van Damme defends
Rosanna Arquette and her small kids.

In another respect, the movie is just another avenue for the two stars
to show off their incredible bodies. Neither has ever been shy about
doing that and certainly aren't in this movie. My only objection is
having one of the kids make a sexual remark, which is done in here.
There is no excuse for that.

Ted Levine, who has turned nice guy in the hit TV series "Monk," is an
effective bad guy in here. He played a lot of villains before "Monk"
came around.

Anyway, it's fairly low-brow entertainment, but at least it is
entertaining and fun to watch.
