About the Movie

Prepare for Maximum Van Dammage when action superstar Jean-Claude Van Damme is joined by sexy newcomer Natasha Henstridge (Species) in their most explosive roles yet! Alain Moreau's (Van Damme) investigation into the death of his identical twin brother leads him from the beauty of the south of France to the mean streets of New York City and into the arms of his brother's beautiful girlfriend (Henstridge). Pursued by ruthless Russian mobsters and renegade FBI agents, the duo race against time to solve his brother's murder and expose an international conspiracy. Sparked by the erotic chemistry between Van Damme and Henstridge, spectacular stunts, and globe-hopping adventure, Maximum Risk is "vintage Van Damme" -Bob Ross, Tmpa Tribune.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: It just simmers down, becoming an embarrassing exercise in the pointless and predictable. – Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 18, 2002

Rotten: There are so many car crashes in Maximum Risk that Van Damme ends up playing second fiddle to an ever-expanding salvage operation. – Richard Harrington, Washington Post, Jan 22, 2002

Rotten: The generic nature of the plot and action sequences, not to mention the presence of Jean-Claude Van Damme, made everything seem all-too-familiar. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Sep 16, 2006

Rotten: Action flicks should be fun, and this one is a bloody bore. – Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle, Mar 7, 2001

Possibly the best JCVD movie made

And yes I have seen them all. This one is different then the others because VD isn't putting on a show...he is just deadly. No spinning back kicks (that I can remember) just cool calm and collected fighting. The characters he portays in other movies I feel like I could fight and be alright but not this one (or Alex in Double Impact) I'd get jacked.

Van Damme is a Great Action Actor

Natasha is soooo hot. When will you be coming out with the movie Lion Heart

Van Damme action and good Van Damme acting

This was different for Jean Claude, yeah it's an action movie but it has the suspense and mystery which made it an awesome adrenaline ride from start to finish
