Hell YEAH!
1 March 2004 | by im4pos2ter0See all my reviews

This is got to be the best (van)damn movie EVER... if not the GREATEST MOVIE EVER MADE!

Not since the likes of "Evil Dead 2" has a movie of this caliber been unleashed upon the unsuspecting horde of mankind!!!

It is so ridiculous, it goes all the way around the quality circle and hits 'awesome'!

But you just have to see it to believe it.

I love half second shots of their faces during the car chase scene, van Damme kicking EVERYONE in the movie(and i mean EVERYONE! not a single human being in this movie is spared from van Damme's kung fu FURY!!!), van Damme using his martial arts to get whatever he wants, the fight scene in the shallow fountain, the shot of the gun landing in the produce, Charelton Heston, the sexy cop who always ran around with her long lucious hair down and her shirt 3 buttons open (yum!), Rudy (van Damme's character) always giving his dad a "high five!", the music (oh God, the music)...

The list goes on... Its endless!

Simply put, this movie is a cinematic masterpiece. The director is a brilliant man with a keen and precise sense of the celluloid artform, as you will see with each perfectly timed and precisely angled shot that creates the awesomeness that is "The Order".

You have to see it to believe it.

My review: 9/10 Go watch it!
