International action superstar Jean-Claude Van Damme teams with Powers Boothe in a tension-packed, suspense thriller set against the backdrop of a Stanley Cup game. Van Damme portrays a father whose daughter is suddenly taken during a championship hockey game. With the captors demanding a billion dollars by game's end, Van Damme frantically sets a plan in motion to rescue his daughter and abort an impending explosion… before the final buzzer. It's a wild ride against time that Kevin Thomas of The Los Angeles Times calls "A superior action thriller loaded with jaw-dropping stunts and special effects."

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Offers above-average pyrotechnics, a body count that steadily mounts, and plenty of hand-to-hand combat.
Rotten: Despite the elaborate stunts, go-go-go direction from Peter Hyams, plus butt-kicking and surprise goalie action from Van Damme, Death deserves the hockey-puck booby prize for...getting its jollies by putting kids in jeopardy.
Fresh: A treat for Jean-Claude Van Damme fans, a superior action thriller loaded with jaw-dropping stunts and special effects, and strong in production values.
Rotten: Van Damme races against time, trying to thwart Boothe and defuse all the bombs. But in the hands of director Peter Hyams, these are just banal action-movie chores.
NEED MORE '' JCVD '' MOVIES ON iTUNES
More HIS movies.......
Die Hard on ice
Before Van Damme made this movie, we were used to martial arts flicks from him, then comes "Sudden Death" it reminds you of Die Hard and others but it really feels like a movie made for a bigger, well known actor like Arnold or Stallone but JCVD got the job and I'm very happy he did it. Classic terrorist/hostage movie. Also directed by Peter Hyams (Timecop).
i expected more
ITS DIE HARD IN A SPORTS ARENA???? how could that go wrong?? ...well this is how...this movie has no depth for an action movie...the characters are so bland...ESPECIALLY THE VILLIAN...by the end of the movie..youre asking yourself why he's doing the things hes doing....and the action is basically Van Damme about to be killed when something convinient happens so he can kill someone....for a 1:50 movie...with only about 20 min of action...that is SAD
