Variety - 09/16/1996
"...It's a visceral delight....[A] full-tilt genre boogie..."
Los Angeles Times - 09/14/1996
"...A solid, fast-moving action-adventure....As for Van Damme, he does some of his best acting yet..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 09/13/1996
"...On the action front the film more than lives up to its title..."
There's plenty of Van Damme-style action as a French soldier learns of the existence of his identical twin only after the Russian-raised sibling is killed by mobsters. Vowing to gain vengeance on his brother's killers, he assumes his brother's identity and travels to Brooklyn's Little Odessa to infiltrate the Russian mob.
