Double Team (1997) (BLU-RAY REVIEW)
DIRECTED BY: Hark Tsui
STARRING: Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dennis Rodman, Mickey Rourke
RATED: R/REGION A/1:85/1080P/NUMBER OF DISCS 1

Counter-terrorist Jack Quinn misses his target, Stavros, on the eve of his final mission. From there, he is sent to “The Colony”, a rebirth for presumed-dead assassins. He breaks free from there, and seeks the aid of Yaz, a weapons dealer, for his final battle with Stavros.

The 1990s gave us lots of things like the internet, pro wrestling, light-up shoes, and snap bracelets. It also gave us things we didn’t know we wanted (and maybe we didn’t) like a movie that teams up Dennis Rodman and Jean-Claude Van Damme. Dennis was at the peak of his popularity and Van Damme was kind of on his last leg as an action star, but here they are teaming up and kicking the butt terrorist in a movie called Double Team. Is this a corny movie? Yes, it certainly is. But still, it manages to be fun even if our two leads couldn’t act their way out of a wet paper bag if their lives depended on it. I guess that sort of car crash vibe this one gives off is half of the fun. This is one you can still manage to kick on back, pop some popcorn, and just laugh at this one for what it is, for better or for worse. At least for those same reasons you won’t ever be bored while watching it.

Things blow up, people go hand to hand combat style, and lots of guns are shot. So, yeah, it boils down to action flick 101 and nothing new at all but the odd leading men combo is brought to the table. But yet somehow you could probably do a whole lot worse than what you actually get here in the form of this oddball action movie. While you can’t call Double Team the best Van Damme movie, you could probably easily call this the best Dennis Rodman movie you’ll ever see. You also have a big cherry on top on the form of Mickey Rourke as the movie’s top bad guy. So, yeah, I can’t promise it is good in the traditional sense, but the movie is watchable and looks pretty good in HD.
