The classic action movie starring Jean Claude Van Damme “Maximum
Risk” arrives on Blu-ray that is one the most clichéd martial art
films of all time. Van Damme plays two roles in a classic 80’s twist
that both characters are twins!
When Mikhail Suverov (Van Damme) is murdered,
Alain Moreau (Van Damme), a French detective working in the United
States is called to investigate this crime. Things start to become
complex when Mikhail’s girlfriend, Alex Minetti (Natasha Henstridge)
believes that Moreau is actually Suvero, whereas Moreau discovers
that his brother had a dark past.
Featuring some great action scenes, good 90's action storytelling
and classic muscles
from Brussels accents that at the end of the day is quite an
enjoyable flick which is masterfully directed by Ringo Lam.
Natasha Henstridge makes her debut in Maximum Risk, she is
unfortunately sidelined and is used more as a tool for the male
audience that makes this movie so clichéd in that 1990’s action
The conversion to Blu-ray is actually quite impressive
and featured decent video and audio quality, although at times it
still has that “video” fell to it. The audio is quite good compared
to the age of this movie and goes well with the storyline and video
quality. In conclusion, Maximum Risk may not be for everyone but if
you’re fan of the Muscles from Brussels, than this is definitely a
good Blu-ray conversion.
