Van Damme gawps blankly, as if trying to remember the simplest lines is a particularly tricky task ...

The scriptwriters, first-time director Sheldon Lettich (Sylvester Stallone's collaborator on "Rambo III") and Van Damme himself, dream up the worst things that could possibly happen. Then they try to kick their way out of them.

As Lionheart heads for his final confrontation, the film's soundtrack blasts out a "Rocky"-like song called 'No Mercy.' Unless you're a Van Damme or martial arts fanatic, you're more likely to be thinking: No, merci.

The fight scenes, which are all Van Damme fans care about anyway, are pumped up by swift edits, which repeat snippets over and over so that it's the MTV equivalent of boxing, and punched-up volume control that adds bangs, pows and zonks wherever possible.

Using tactics like these, Woody Allen could become an action hero, too.

Although it's possible to enjoy isolated sequences of Lionheart, this is not one of martial arts superstar Jean-Claude Van Damme's better kick-ass vehicles.

Lionheart is a fantastic piece of entertainment, and Van Damme himself gives a charismatic performance proving he's not only got the goods for martial arts action, but can also hold his own with drama.
December 20, 2008
Accompanied by an occasionally jazzy score, the film has a solid dramatic base on which to build the Jean-Claude Van Damme action.
